On their Friday street nights, do they require current helmet certification or can you use an older helmet? Both of my helmets are snell M85.
Other than a catch can on the radiator overflow, do they require anything else? Do they enforce the driveshaft loop rule for et's under 13.00(wishful thinking here on getting under 13.00)?

I haven't ran the Z on the track yet (been to it just two times and I live a mile from the track as a crow flies) but I'm pretty sure I seen guys dragging without a helmet, could be wrong though! As far as the catch can and driveshaft loop rule, not sure at all on those two! The guys running w/o a helmet seemed to be driving fairly stock vehicles but the ones driving the really souped up rides definitely had helmets on!!!

You need a helmet if under 13 or above like 108mph. You could get away with wearing a cheap bicycle helmet. They've never checked me.

The last time I raced at HRP was in the 80's. I had to wear a three layer quilted fire suit, gloves, a neck collar and wrist straps. Houston is just too hot to be wearing all that gear for 8 seconds of fun. I'm looking forward to finding out what my Z can do.

Many of the tracks are pretty fair, I see guys running 12.5 without helmets many times. But I think the regulars get helmets so they follow the rules and such, but this event is a bit far for me.
