Unless there has been a recent change, one-ways are very definitely allowed under USVTA rules.

Yes, one-ways are absolutely legal.

I'm reading it as open 21.5, not a spec motor.

I believe that VTA will be open to any ROAR Sportsman speedo is the only deviation from the National USVTA rules

USGT any 21.5

Oneways legal for national rules, but promoters/track owners sometimes rule them out
