After another long winter, there’s no doubt you’re ready to get out and race.

But what about your race vehicle and equipment? Has your chassis received its required certifications, if needed? Does it need to be re-certified? Does your bellhousing, transmission shields, and other safety equipment meet the proper SFI specifications.

To help make sure you’re legal and ready to race, we’ve put together this list of chassis certification dates and locations. We’ve also included a quick guide to SFI specifications and expiration dates, courtesy of the NHRA and IHRA.

Happy racing!
