Passing Tech Inspection

Postby ttytar1 » Sat Sep 03, 2011 4:13 pm

Roger,
The parts to fix my front fairing are very expensive and on back-order, can I race without fairings and still pass tech inspection?

Thanks

Sure can, just got to put a number plate up front. I have a spare yellow one from my first race at my house if you need to borrow it.

I beg to differ. No way Travis.
JK. The number plate just needs to be visible on the front and the right for CCW.
Let me know if you need any help in the pits.

Can you describe the number plate requirement a little more, for example above you mentioned CCW what about the other way? Number size?

I guess this covers it some but it does not mention what side

2B. Number Plates and numbers
1. ASMA requires all amateur racers to use a Yellow background with Black numbers. All experts are required to
run White background with Black numbers. Front numbers must be at least 6 inches tall, while side numbers
must be at least 5 inches tall. Numbers must be placed so they are easy to read from 100 feet away. If we can’t
read your number you will not be scored

If it can't be read from the side of the bike facing the scorekeepers at start/finish, depending on the direction we're going...then you won't pass tech. If you need to put your number on the top of the tail because the tail is too small, we may require it to be on the side of the fairing. It's all up to the discretion of the head official and scorekeepers.

Had to have been in 2007, I'm fat in that picture (that's my ass hanging out in the background). Plus I haven't had to park on that side of the asphalt in years, dunno whose truck it is behind the Trail-90 (only one I can think of is Chandler, but don't think he visited in 2007).

It is an old picture, September 8, 2007 I think. I only posted it because this discussion of number plates reminded me of it and thought some of you might get a laugh out of it.

He's talking about the big aluminum ramps. I believe it's Mike Lesters setup.

I forget who it owned it, but that is a class-c motorhome/toyhauler, maybe from Alb.

From Dallas. He was supposed to sponsor Ben Thompson in 2009, but they never raced. Mike and his son raced here one time. Doug brought them out.
