All I could find was that for NA cars (that would be me) you have to weigh in at 3200 pounds, run a 14.5 or better, and launch on foot break only.... but there has to be more to it than that. there are power adder regulations as well but it looks like they just need to weigh in at 3400 pounds? Cars will stage with a 0.500 pro tree (no idea what that means) in a dial-in-style race. foot break rule applies to all.

Im good to go as far as safety equipment i think. I have safety loops going in with my DS as soon as I get a chance to instal itl. Im pretty new to the "official" racing scene. I have been to enough open track days but never anything official. It would be a real shame to show up to my first real race and never make it past inspection so any advice or pointers are greatly appreciated...
