The National board will be sending out an updated statement regarding the energency gas cap rule change. We know the required date for the change is now January 1st, 2016; more information to follow. Below is the statement issued Tuesday; if you have any questions, please contact Denise Smutny
or Jody Autunno
"We have been made aware of an incident in which a gas cap (1/4 turn type) has come off during a racing incident and the fuel spilled on the driver. Thankfully there was no ignition and the driver is fine. But, we do not want to take any chances with our driver's safety! Therefore, as of Monday, August 10, 2015 the ¼ turn gas caps will not be allowed in QMA.
Again, our first concern is our driver's safety and we do not want an incident like this to occur again and potentially hurt a driver. Should you have any questions or comments please respond or call to discuss at your earliest convenience.
Jody E. Autunno, QMA Safety Director"
