    Cracking down on motorsports drag racing tow vehicles

    You gotta love how they are cracking down Hard in NC. Whatever you do make sure you are legal and you have the right weight on your towing vehicle and also your length is under 60 ft. Class A license if you are under 26,001 lbs GVWR. No longer just a Class C like we thought. Thats tow and trailer together! :roll:

    Man that really bites. Us racers sure go through alot just to enjoy our sport. The cost of cars,parts and race fuel are only about half the cost of racing. Than theres the cost of your tow vehicle,trailer,tools,entry fees,motel rooms,food and fuel plus the garage you keep it all in.

    Sometimes if feels like they are trying to choke us out of our sport......just to many costs and regulations. Seems like everyone wants a piece of the pie. But I guess when your traveling 60 or 70 mph down the highway beside families with their kids your tow vehicle has to be in good condition so there are no accidents.
    If a 5 lb hammer can't fix it,it must be electrical
    Keep the shiney side up! 8)
