Lakebed Tech – Chassis vs Safety and Contingency
If you did full tech in 2022 and have the 2022 Ultra 4 sticker, you do not need the Chassis Tech appointment on the lakebed. Everyone must go through Safety and Contingency tech before their race which is listed on the published schedule but there is no appointment for that. If you need full chassis tech, please click here to schedule your appointment for the lakebed.
