RULE CLARIFICATION AND ENFORCEMENT NOTICE - - - March 21, 2018
To all Hobby Stock teams at Mahoning Valley Speedway…
It was brought to our attention during this past weekend’s (March 17-18) tech inspections that took place at the Test and Tune some of the cars did not fully comply with safety rule #3 under “Fuel System.” This is a rule that has been in place and needs to be adhered in the name of safety.
If your car does not have the proper switch please do your best to have it installed. We are allowing a grace period in order to make everyone standardize to the rule.
1. Fuel cells are mandatory.
1A. Can use stock tank if in front of rear axle.
2. Fuel cell must be mounted on top of trunk floor, as far forward as possible and be centered in car. Cell should be secured with (4) one inch X 1/8” steel straps – 2 front to rear, and 2 left to right- with large washers or 1/8” thick plates on underside and minimum 3/8” bolts.
3. “Fuel pump shut off switch is mandatory. Must be accessible from both sides of car and be painted a bright color. Must be clearly marked Fuel on-off. Fuel pump shut off switch must kill power to fuel pump AND ignition. Switch will be tested periodically during the season. Carbureted engines must have a fuel shut off valve and be clearly marked.”
4. Electric fuel pumps must match OEM specs for fuel pressure.
