Due to there not being any improvement regarding the Covid-19 virus crisis, the decision has been made to cancel the Edmonton AB Chassis Inspection Seminar at this time, which was originally scheduled for Saturday & Sunday April 25th/26th at Y-Welding/Ebertz Racing. At this time and in light of recent changes to NHRA’s Chassis Inspection Process (see below), this event will likely not be rescheduled. Please refer to the official NHRA information posted below.
Hopefully the Covid-19 situation will subside early enough for the NHRA Drag Racing season to proceed which would allow racers to have chassis inspections performed at events. Anyone that has questions or concerns can call the NHRA Division 6 Tech Line @ 306-262-6472. Thank you in advance for your understanding. Practise social distancing and self isolate or work from home if you are able to. Stay safe and wishing everyone good health.
