You should be able to. It depends on the tech people. I've got a nasty +2' crack on the lower 4" of my windshield and done HPDE and hillcilmbs too. I am going to replace the 5 year old glass soon as the rock chips in the line of sight are getting bad. The hood scoop blocks the view for 85% of the crack.

Phone/e-mail whoever is putting on the the event and ask. The Porshe people questiond my crack, but said OK.

Some techs won't pass it if the crack reaches the edge of the window. That happened to my friend's STi the first time we went autoxing.

Bring a rulebook with you. Nothing in it that I know of that disqualifies you for a crack. I had a bad one for a while on my 06 Rex and no one ever said a word.

The two times I ever AutoX'd nothing was said about the crack in the windshield.
