Fire Suppression System - January 11, 2022

By the first WoO racing event of 2023 fire suppression systems will be required on all World of Outlaws Sprint Series competitors. Sprint Car Safety Council members are in the process of working with SFI and manufacturers to develop a set of specifications which is anticipated to be completed by May 2021. It is anticipated the specifications will include a required number of nozzle/s and their location, minimum 5lb system, bottle construction, type of mounting hardware, etc. It is recommended that anyone considering a sprint car fire suppression system should wait until the SFI specifications are released before making a purchase.
