Vehicle Inspection (Teching)

All vehicles running in NWSCA sanctioned competition must be thoroughly inspected at least once a year prior to running in any event.  This inspection will include safety equipment, frame construction, class requirements, etc.  A certificate of inspection will be issued for the vehicle upon compliance with all rules and approval of the frame.

After a vehicle has been inspected, any altering or modifications to chassis or frame must be re-inspected before it is allowed to run.  This the responsibility of the driver/owner to have the vehicle reinspected.

Although vehicles are required to be inspected once a year, all vehicles are subject to random teching.  Failure to have your vehicle reinspected after changes are made could result in forfeiture of points and/or disqualification from racing.
