No warranty of safety is expressed or implied as a result of this publication of rules. These rules are intended as guide and are in no way guarantee against injury or death to participants, spectators, or others. Anything not covered by these specifications should be approved by the track officials and placed in writing. Continuous developments in auto racing and technology may mandate changes in these specifications. However, it is our intent to enforce and police these rules throughout the season. If a change is necessary, technical bulletins will be prepared and distributed in advance.
