Want to get a head start on the Grassroots Motorsports $2017 Challenge weekend? In an effort to get everyone through tech as quickly as possible, an official NHRA tech inspector will be viewing and approving cars (and trucks) at the host hotel Thursday evening starting at 6:15. Come for the tech inspection, and stay for the Challenge pickup truck being built in the parking lot.

Thank you to CRC Industries and Miller Electric for continuing to support the Grassroots Motorsports $2017 Challenge.

Can they inspect in trailer or does it need to come out?

In reply to Patrick :

It'll need to come out. We don't have a final exact location for it yet (we're still waiting to hear from the hotel if we can use the porte-cochere out front) but there will be a set location.

One note for this, too: Your car must have all its required stickers to pass tech. Make sure you grab them at registration before joining the tech line.

Our ringer driver won't be there until Friday morning. Can we tech Thursday evening and have her do her paperwork Friday morning?

Miller sent me an envelope of stickers for free to work with prior to the event so i have extras if you're feeling extra millery.  Crc, unfortunately, didn't even reply to my request to purchase some stickers from them.
