All OGS1320 events are hosted at NHRA sanctioned tracks, therefore all NHRA safety rules and Guidelines must be followed at all times. It is the sole responsibility of each competitor to ensure that their vehicle is in absolute compliance of any and all 2017 NHRA rules. OGS1320 class rules are solely for the purpose of insuring side by side competition and in no way shape or form supersede or conflict with NHRA safety rules and Guidelines. All NHRA safety rules and Guidelines must be followed at all times during the course of each event.

OGS1320 reserves the right at any time to inspect, seal for inspection, and/or tear down a participant’s vehicle. Every vehicle is subject to such further technical inspection at any time before, during or after an event, at the time and in the place and manner directed by an OGS1320 tech official. Not complying in full with any inspection request will result in disqualification for further competition and such other penalties as deemed appropriate by OGS1320 management.

Should a competitor spill excessive oil from the catch pan and debris onto the track, he or she may be disqualified from further competition at the sole and absolute discretion of the event director until the catch pan is upgraded, regardless of the height of pan lips or pan design.
