Kinda funny, people spend all kinds of money on the newest car design, ceramic bearings, special shocks, lightened gears, lightened axles, etc. etc. etc. but want to mount a billboard on top of their car.

 Put your hand out your car window at 30 mph and see what happens.  

That is exactly why they are not allowed.  While Panther here just wants a visor, others will start tweaking it and bending it until it ends up looking like a little wing on the front of the car because someone somewhere will think it will give them an advantage.

Panther, just go with the tape on the shield.  It works.  We have been to one track that doesn't allow it, so I actually had 3/4" wide strips of black vinyl made and I use those there because it just looks like the stuff the factory put on the shield and the people running the track don't know any different.

It's also funny how people spend all of this money on top of the line safety equipment and then mount their kid to where limbs or even heads stick out of the car. I wouldn't advise it either.

I guess the moral to what I'm saying is. People do odd things. But, I don't see the problem with people running visors. It's not hurt anyone's performance but their own and there are things legal in our sport much more dangerous.

Given the right tech specs and limitation I just don't see where it would be that big of a deal. But, I guess I'm not USAC. Their organization, their decision I guess.

I agree with you Burns17. I don't think my little visor is going to hurt anyone except our lap times. I have never understood why a child should have their head outside of a pefectly good racecar. They say for the weight to the left. I would rather keep my daughter's head inside where it is mostly save then chance it for a spot on the race track.

Love seeing that USAC has the new rule that allows a visor on quarter midgets. Now if the other sanctioning body would allow them it would be great.

G. No restraining device may be used to keep the drivers head or body outside of
the roll cage
 this is a rule direct from the usac rule book yet i see this on almost every car

I don't understand how both sanctioning bodies can say they are so focused on safety and they allow children to have their heads outside of the car. At my home track this season, I seen with my own eyes a Novice driver roll his car and it landed on the left side in return since he is belted to the left and has a helmet rest on the other, his helmet smacked the ground. What is sad is that NO ONE had an issue with that,now does that make sence. I will not allow my kids to hang out like that at any cost. There is not another form of auto racing that allows that except moto and maybe karts since they do mount their seats tilted low and laid back.
