|For those that didn't read the May Redline, here's a repeat of the Tech Tip:
In this period of social distancing and pandemic precautions, tech inspections must change with the times. Tech staff will maintain a 6-8' spacing during any annual inspections, express tech and when you come in off the track. Here's some suggestions on how racers can help tech inspectors do their work as efficiently and safely as possible:
-For 2020 only, annual inspections will be extended to 15 months since the last annual was done. So if your last annual was done in May 2019, the next one wouldn't be due until August 2020.
-If an annual inspection must be done in 2020, please have the logbook and personal safety equipment laid out, and the racecar open so we can examine them in an orderly manner and without being too close.
-For express tech, we will only need to see your logbook and registration wristband to complete the process. Please bring your helmet to be tech'd if you're on an extended annual.
-The 2020 helmet stickers are bright green and slightly larger than in the past. They must be visible on the left side of the helmet for pit and grid or tech to verify.
-During tech inspections at the track, tech staff will direct racers on and off scales and will maintain social distancing while doing their work.
-Please follow tech staff instructions if you are in impound, and spread out nearby to maintain social distancing before your vehicle is released.
