KILL SWITCHES

  1. Kill switches must meet NTPA standards. Pulling vehicles must have an automatic ignition kill switch and or shutoff.
  2. Track officials and/or techman have the option to check kill switches at any time, switches must be checked with engine running except that tech officals option to use ohm meters or buzzboxes. If there is any doubt as to whether the device is hooked up properly the engine will be started to check kill switch. All MSD mags must use kill switch approved by NTPA(trailer breakaway switch not allowed).
  3. Kill switch must be mounted independently of drawbar and or wheelie bar.

LOCATION OF KILL SWICHES

  1. Pro Stock, Super Stock, Super Farm, and Modified Tractors must be located in the rear center of the vehicle (maximum 6" off center in any direction) and 48" above point of hook.
  2. Any TWD and FWD truck must be located in the rear center of the vehicle (maximum 6" off center in any direction) and 24" above point of hook.

TYPES OF KILL SWITCHES MANDATED

  1. Automotive types engines that are spark ignition must use a waterproof, dust proof must use a tether type safety stop switch. On spark ignition engines the kill switch must break or ground the ignition circuit and if the vehicle has an electric fuel pump it must also break current to the fuel pump or pumps.
  2. On diesel engines the kill cable must activate the air shutoff, no electrical operated air shutoffs.
    NOTE: A cable may be used for this purpose but must have a positive type enclosed cable for the air shutoff. The cap must have a spring loaded closing mechanism. System to be deemed acceptable must at least prevent building boost. It is recommended that a gasket or seal arrangement be used to more effectively shut off air flow. Door or rain cap type shutoffs(no butterfly type) will be required on all self ignition engines with a separate control for the driver. Control for the driver must not be the same control as for sled.
  3. Breakaway kill switches must have minimum 2" diameter solid ring with no less than 1/8" cross sectional thickness attached to them. Portion of the kill switches and mounting brackets must be able to withstand 32lbs of pull per switch when pulled independently or collectively.

Diesel engines must be equipped with an emergency shutdown air shutoff at the air intake that can be operated at the drivers seat.

TRACK RULES

  1. MTTPA track length will be 30ft wide and 310ft long with restart line at 100ft. Floating finish is up to organizer and sled operator. The 310ft mark is the default finish unless the organizer announces a floating finish before the first vehicle hooks up to the sled.
  2. The pulling vehicle must remain within the set boundaries of the contest during the pull. If the vehicle touches or crosses the out of bounds lines it will result in immediate disqualification even past the 310’ line if the lines are clearly marked.
  3. A floating finish line may be used at the discretion of the competition director and the sled operator in a pull-off situation.
  4. All stock tractor classes will have a floating finish line unless otherwise stated at the drivers meeting at the beginning of the event.

COMPETITION RULES

  1. The test puller in MTTPA classes must be in the correct vehicle category. Pro Stock tractor class is exempt from this rule.
  2. If a vehicle is legal when hooked to the sled and breakage occurs while under the green flag the pull will be measured, with the exception of the loss of weights or safety equipment on to the track.
  3. The pulling vehicle must be able to drive onto the track and back up to the sled at the starting line, unhook, and drive off the track under their own power unless breakage occurs.
    NOTE: Modified lawn tractors are exempt from this “back up” rule.
  4. In the case of a class restart the competitors that have already competed have the following options:
    1. They may re-hook immediately.
    2. Drop six positions.
    3. Drop to last pull position due to mechanical problems.
  5. Any disqualification on the first attempt bars a second attempt unless the class is restarted.
  6. Competitor must pull at the position drawn within three minutes of the sled returning to the starting line and is ready for the next competitor. Delay will result in a disqualification (Judges Decision). If the track official is notified prior to the competitors time slot of mechanical problems the competitor may drop six positions and is allowed six minutes once they are called to the starting line. A competitor may drop in starting position only once per class. However, if the driver is called to the track for competition after dropping six positions and is still not ready for competition, a disqualification will be automatic. The track official’s decision will be final.
  7. If the competing vehicle is found to be over the permitted weight for the class that it is entered in then that competitor will be automatically disqualified from that class.
  8. Once a class has begun there will be no further registration for that class no people other than the track officials are to be on the track during the pull.
  9. Weight of the pulling vehicle must include the driver and safety gear.
  10. A tech-man will be present during the event, and may use any testing equipment that is provided to them by the governing association on any competition vehicle at anytime during the season as they see fit.
  11. All decisions by the judges are final.
  12. Contestants will be allowed a total of two attempts including the 100-foot rule to start the sled. If the driver lifts from the from the throttle in an attempt to stop their forward motion before getting to the 100 foot line they will get a second attempt to start the sled. If no effort is made to back off of the throttle, no second attempt will be awarded. However, the intent of this rule is not for the driver to apply the brakes before 100 feet or at anytime, but to come to a smooth stop. Track officials will consider jerking the sled by backing out of the throttle grounds for disqualification.

SLED

  1. The chain should be set to the lowest possible position as per each class that is competing.
  2. All pulls must start with the chain tight.
  3. The sled must be re-adjusted if the competitor fails to reach the 125 foot mark on a regulation outdoor track.

If he/she fails to do so they will receive the same money and points as the top vehicle that did not qualify for the pull-off unless they are unable to compete due to breakage. Once breakage has been confirmed by a track official that competitor will receive last place points and money according to the amount of vehicles in the pull-off.
  3. If a second pull off occurs then those who have qualified for the second pull-off wish not to compete then points and prize money will be split between those competitors.
  4. No test pull is allowed during a pull-off. The 75-foot rule does not apply during a pull-off

GROUNDS FOR DISQUALIFICATION

  1. A pulling vehicle losing a weight(s) while under the green flag will automatically disqualified.
  2. No individual other than the driver may ride on the tractor, or in the cab of the tractor is returning to the pit area following the pull. If individuals do so it may result in a disqualification. (Judge’s Discretion).
