The 14 point cage is for use in Sportsman class. And the 10 point cage Is the one I use in my pro-street cars. The 8 point is the least protection and cost only $149.

Yes there is money to win but you must register with the manufacturers you represent/stickers before you race. There really is a reason to plaster your car with stickers when you drag race at the track!!

Real racers use Real safety gear. You ever seen a blower blown off an engine? Or hot oil catch fire when a rod goes through the pan? You will want a fire suit when you get out of the street stock classes.

Racing wheels will bend easily or even collapse when they hit a bump or hole in the street, use racing wheels only on the track.

The NHRA is the reason racing came to the tracks from the street. Timing was recorded and safety was a must. Some of the old dragsters were nothing more than a frame with a seat attached.

Do you have anything you want to add?
