still need to know the body height rule and also some one brought a good point up before with no response. If u running three classes is there any way to get any extra room on your pit spot. 2 x 4 is small with 3 cars and equipment.

Now to address the tire sauce issue. My reason first of all for having a handout non odor tire sauce is because of the hotel. I know at other events like Cleveland and Snowbirds it is not an issue. All the guests of the hotel for the week of the race are racers, not the general public, so smell is not an issue. Things are 100% different in Las Vegas. The hotel is already sold out for our week. Not only with our racers but 100's&100's of other people. So we have to use something that will not affect the conditions at the hotel for the other guests. Last year at the US Touring Car Championships(Novak Race) We used Corally Jack the Gripper as our control tire sauce and it worked great! Conditions stayed consistant throughtout the event. So I know it works awsome at a big race. Each racer will be GIVEN 1 can of Jack.

Now to address if someone will try and use something else. We will have a very experienced tech crew working this event being lead by Jamie Tennies.
We will abvouisly check the tires for any smell of different tire traction when they are in tech. I will have a many people in my staff that will be working this event with me. They will be walking through the pits making sure everything is ok and they will be checking to make sure nobody is trying to cheat. And there is one simple statement.
ANYONE CAUGHT RUNNING TIRE SAUCE OR ADDITIVE OTHER THAN TC2 JACK THE GRIPPER WILL BE ELIMINATED FROM THE EVENT. DONE! BA BYE!
Man would it suck come all the way to this race, get caught cheating and not be allowed to run. That would SUCK. So don't do it. Besides, there is going to be so much traction down on the rug that it will most likely hurt you to run something other than what everyone else is using. That should cover that topic.
The post was so good i thought i should post it again

I am at work right now I will get an answer on pit size and body height rule.

Remember, We only have so much room to work with.

Not to beat a dead horse, but will we be able to use some things to clean tires after the run? I know on asphalt, most people use either motor spray or Simple Green to clean the tire off. I've also seen people use Buggy Grip as well. Will these be banned as well? I just don't want to be sitting in my pit cleaning my tires and get booted
