Tech Inspection
GaSSit is an NHRA Alternative Sanction Organization (ASO). We are the first Impala SS club in the country to be recognized as an NHRA ASO. In order to keep our ASO status and our insurance, we WILL be enforcing these rules. If you can't pass tech, you can't race. We will try to help you to pass tech, but the decision of the Tech Inspectors is FINAL and the GaSSit Steering Committee doesn't want to hear about it.
