PROCEDURE:

* IF A RACECAR PASSES INITIAL INSPECTION, IT IS NOT AUTOMATICALLY DECLARED LEGAL IN POST RACE

INSPECTION. IF YOU SUSPECT ANY PART OF YOUR CAR IS NOT COVERED IN OUR RULES, DISCUSS THIS WITH THE TECH

MAN BEFORE THE RACE.

HAS 5 MINUTES TO SUBMIT CASH TO THE TECH PERSON AND STATE EXACTLY WHAT THEYARE PROTESTING. ALL PROTEST

MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY CASH BEFORE THE MAYHEM TECH PERSON WILL IMPOSE PROTEST AND ASK PROTESTED CAR

OWNERS IF THEY ACCEPT. WHEN CASH HAS BEEN SUBMITTED TO TECH PERSON, THEN THE REPRESENTATIVE OF THE CAR

BEING PROTESTED WILL ACCEPT OR DENY THE PROTEST.

*ONLY 1 REPRESENTATIVE OF THE PROTESTING TEAM MAY OBSERVE ALL TECH PROCEDURES. THE TECH PERSONS DECISION

ON WHETHER THE CAR IN QUESTION IS LEGAL BY THE RULES POSTED IS FINAL.

*IF THE CAR BEING PROTESTED HAS BEEN PENALIZED FOR AN INFRACTION ANNOUNCED PRE RACEAND ALLOWED TO RACE,

THE INFRACTION WILL BE DISREGUARDED DURING TECH PROCEDURES.THIS PENALTY AND INFRACTION WILL BE ANNOUNCED

AND THE PROTESTING TEAM WILL BE ALLOWED TO WITHDRAWL THEIR PROTEST. THIS PENALTY SHOULD BE NOTED ON THE

HOOD OF THE CAR NEAR THE CC’S AND WEIGHT SPEC FOR POST RACE PROTEST RIGHTS.
