Drag strip participants: ETI & RTI advisory for 2020


May 1, 2020


Dear Racers:

When racing does return to World Wide Technology Raceway, priority will be given to racers who have obtained an official NHRA Extended Technical Inspection (ETI).  The ETI process enables you to avoid person-to-person contact in staging, streamlines the tech process and gets you down the track quicker.  Best of all, it’s free.

You may make arrangements now to get your own ETI inspection by contacting Taryn at WWTR: taryn.bailey@wwtraceway.com or 618-215-8888 ext. 115.

Starting Saturday, May 9, WWTR also will begin to offer our first-ever Raceway Technical Inspection (RTI).  The RTI is available for cars that normally participate in street-legal drags, Wide Open Wednesday, Midnight Madness – and in classes such as Trophy or Sportsman.  Just like the ETI process, the RTI is totally free and also includes a competition number for you to use at each WWTR event.  On an average race night you would simply obtain your racer credentials, proceed to the RTI tech lanes and place your assigned number on the car window and go racing.

WWTR will have RTI registration information posted online starting Thursday, May 7, and inspections will begin on Saturday, May 9. You will need to provide photocopies of your driver license, vehicle registration and copies of the completed RTI form.

As a reminder, WWTR also is working with the Pit Pay App to offer a contact-free advance purchase and entry process. Download the app now to be prepared.

Testing will return soon and it won’t be much longer before you will actually be able to compete with your friends.  To make sure you don’t miss your chance, please take the steps now and be prepared.

Please note:  When WWWTR returns to open participant events, service fees will be applied to any racer NOT having either the ETI or RTI that requires an on-site tech inspection.  Please take advantage of a free opportunity to streamline your race day experience and save money.

Thank you,

Chris Blair, Executive Vice President & General Manager, World Wide Technology Raceway
