There is a rollbar and there is a rollcage.
The determination of which you need depends on the class you will be participating in or the Elapsed Time or Trap Speed you will attain. As a for-instance, a minimum 5-point rollbar with 5-point (SFI 16.1) safety belts is required at 11.49 or quicker. A minimum 6-point rollcage is required at 10.99 if the floor of the vehicle has been modified in excess of 4 square feet (not including tubs) or if the firewall has been altered in excess of 1 square foot. If the floor and/or firewall are unaltered beyond the figures I listed here, then a rollbar is legal to 10.00 E.T. and 134 mph.
A minimum 6-point rollcage is required on all vehicles at 9.99 or quicker and on all vehicles that go 135 mph or faster in the quarter mile.
