Safety & Tech

For the most part, TDRA’s General Safety and Tech Rules mirror those being utilized by most of the U.S. based off-road racing organizations in place today.

There are however slight differences and these are noted in the below list.

  • Pit crew members must wear orange/yellow safety vest with reflective strips on the front and back. (these can be purchased at most Home Depot, Lowes or Walmart)
  • Pit crew members fueling car must wear full safety gear: suit, gloves and full face helmet.
  • Tower Fueling systems must have DIRECT GROUND SPIKE and deadman.
  • No vehicles on course other than registered race vehicles during race.
  • No vehicles in Remote Pit area. Pit personnel will be permitted in the Auxiliary Pit area only if they have the correct wristband. Items such as fuel, tires or additional spare parts may be left in the Auxiliary Pit area however; TDRA is not responsible for any issues with items that are left unattended.
  • Minors will be permitted to participate only if they fill out Minor Release (form requires Notary).
  • Mandatory rear view mirror or driver/co-driver side mirrors (with protection) for all race vehicles.
  • No motorcycles or ATV’s are allowed at TDRA events, please leave these vehicles at home. Pedal power bicycles are allowed and limited to designated areas only.
  • Authorized TDRA personnel ONLY past security checkpoints. This is a zero(0) tolerance policy.
