Default Track Rules

Remember, BYRON is a IHRA sanction track. Running faster than a stock wrx, bring a helmet. Wear pants. For those planning on flying:

ROLL BARS
Mandatory in all cars running 11.49 or quicker, or per class requirements. All roll bars must be within 6 inches of the rear or side of the driver's head, extend in height at least 3 inches above the driver's helmet with driver in normal driving position, and be at least as wide as the driver's shoulders or within 1 inch of the driver's door. Rollbar must be adequately supported or cross-braced to prevent forward or lateral collapse. Rear braces must be
of the same diameter and wall thickness as the roll bar and intersect with the roll bar at a point not more than 5 inches from the top of the roll bar. Sidebar must be included on driver's side and must pass the driver at a point midway between the shoulder and elbow. Swing-out sidebar permitted. All roll bars must have in their construction a cross bar for seat bracing and as the shoulder-harness attachment point; cross bar must be installed no more than 4 inches below, and not above, the driver's shoulders or to side bar. All vehicles with OEM frame (i.e. pickup truck where body bolts to framerails) must have roll bar welded or bolted to frame. Installation of frame connectors on unibody cars does not constitute a frame; therefore, it is not necessary to have the roll bar attached to the frame. Unibody cars with stock floor and firewall (wheeltubs permitted) may attach roll bar with 6-inch x 6-inch x
.125-inch steel plates on top and bottom of floor bolted together with at least four 3/8-inch bolts and nuts, or weld main hoop to rocker sill area with .125-inch reinforcing plates, with plates welded completely. All 4130 chrome moly tube welding must be done by approved TIG heliarc process; mild steel welding must be done by approved MIG wire feed or approved TIG heliarc process. Welding must be free of slag and porosity. Any grinding of welds prohibited. Roll bar must be padded anywhere driver's helmet may contact it while in driving position. Adequate padding must have minimum 1/4-inch compression or meet SFI Spec 45.1.

ROLL CAGE
Mandatory in all cars running quicker than 10.99 seconds or faster than 135 mph, or per class requirements. Cars with unaltered firewall, floor and body (from firewall rearward, wheeltubs permitted) running between 10.00 and 10.99, roll bar permitted in place of roll cage, or per Class Requirements. Cars with altered firewall, floor faster than 11.49 must have rollcage and window net. All cage structures must be designed in an attempt to protect the driver from any angle, 360 degrees. All 4130 chrome-moly tube welding must be done by approved TIG heliarc process; mild steel tube welding must be approved MIG wire feed or TIG heliarc process. Welding must be free of slag and porosity. Any grinding of welds prohibited. Additionally, roll cage must be padded anywhere the driver's helmet may contact it while in the driving position. With driver in driving position, helmet must be in front of main
hoop. If helmet is behind or under main hoop, additional tubing, same size and thickness as roll cage, must be added to protect driver. Main hoop may be laid back or forward, but driver must be encapsulated within the required roll cage components. On unibody cars with stock floor and firewall (wheel tubs permitted), the roll cage may be bolted or welded to the floor/rocker box via 6-inch x 6-inch x .125-inch steel plates Unless attaching to OEM floor or frame, the minimum requirements for a frame member to which a roll cage member is attached are 1 5/8-inch x .118-inch MS or .083-inch CM round and/or 2-inch x 2-inch x .058 MS or CM rectangular. All cage structures must have in their construction a cross bar for seat bracing and as the shoulder-harness attachment point; cross bar must be installed no more than 4 inches below, and not above, the driver's shoulders, or to side bar. All required rear braces must be installed at a minimum angle of 30 degrees from vertical and must be welded in. Side bar must pass the driver at a point midway between the shoulder and elbow. Unless an OEM framerail is located below and outside of driver's legs, a rocker or sill bar, minimum 1 5/8-inch x .083 CM or .118 MS or 2-inch x 2-inch x .058-inch CM or MS rectangular, is mandatory in any car with a modified floor or rocker box within the roll-cage
uprights (excluding 6 square feet of transmission maintenance opening). Rocker bar must be installed below and outside of driver's legs and must tie into the main hoop, the forward hoop, frame, frame extension, or side diagonal. Rocker bar may not tie into swing-out side bar support. If rocker bar ties into side diagonal more than 5 inches (edge to edge) from forward roll-cage support or main hoop, a 1 5/8-inch x .083 CM or .118 MS brace/gusset is mandatory between the diagonal and forward roll-cage support or main hoop.

Default Misc

Food:
We're going to do our best to feed everyone. A grill will be brought along with other various snacks/drinks etc... OF course you're more than welcome to bring a pack of brats or whatever you'd like. We'll more than likely be grilling only hamburgers and hotdogs.

Those taking photos or video:
If you have an adapter please bring it, that way we can transfer any videos you may have over to my computer while at the event and I will be able to get them up to a host shortly after getting home.
Also those taking video please see This post.

Those with extra driveline parts:
Bring them, you may be able to sell them to someone in need. If I can get my generator running I'll be toting along my air compressor and anything else needed to do some quick emergency repairs.

Spectators: In the past we haven't parked really close to the bleachers so if you wanted to stay close to the group you were usually stuck standing unless you brought your own chairs. So try to remember to bring your own fold out chairs.

Race Gas: They've got all kinds available at Byron, if you have a specific type you're looking for you may want to phone the track to verify that they have it.

Just got off the phone with BJ @ Byron, everythings good with the trophies.

Also, I think we've figured out what we're going to do with T-shirts:

As stated above we're going to be giving out the shirts free to the first thirty racers to show up, register & report in at the track on the day of the event. For those who don't make the first 30 or are buying their shirts seperately the shirts are going to be 12 dollars a piece.

We would like to start selling T-shirts prior to the event so that people will have it to wear at the track and so that we can recoup some of the money that will need to be spent on food & other supplies.

Racers will get first crack at shirt sizes, please ensure that if you are racing you notify either myself or bunot of your shirt size by 8/31 so that we may reserve a shirt for you. The current list is Here. This will ensure that your shirt is set aside. Reserved shirts for racers if not claimed by noon on the day of the shootout will be put up for sale.

Once we have the shirts set aside for racers the other shirts will be up for grabs. They may even be sold as early as the meet this thursday.

For those that purchase their shirts early and are one of the first 30 that show up to race at the track will recieve a refund for the price of their shirt.
