If you actually are going to run at Bonneville. You should step up and buy a rule book. There is no class in which a NASCAR legal; car can run at an SCTA event. But some do run for Time Only. I don't know what if any changes they had to make to run. If you have a car and a rule book, you would know what's what.

They have run before but as said "time only". The first thing I would even if you don't have a rule book is print out a check off sheet from the scta-BNI website and go thru line by line. Each line refers to a rule and it is stated by reference. That doesn't mean you will pass safety inspection but may be close and you can see what's needed. Habitually other organizations rules are not as stringent as the SCTA since drivers/cars can be gotten to quicker. You could flip and roll for a mile at Bonneville.

Don't assume anything, if it's a true cup car it will probably be over 200 so the rule for that speed will be scrutinized very very closely. If you live near some one familiar with the SCTA rules or has built a car that will help. Typically tubing material is thinner than even tho there is a lot of safety built in for hitting others and walls.

There will be fire suppression needed and drive safety gear. But as stated a rulebook for us is a must and with a check off sheet you can see as you go thru the vehicle even before you commit. Good luck

Structurally, yes, most would pass.  But don't expect to show up with a car that isn't specifically prepped for an SCTA event thinking you'll get through tech based on chassis structure alone.  Lots of other sub-systems are looked at besides structure.  Seat, door net, driver containment, fire system, fuel system, drive line, etc etc etc.

The reason why I asked was that there is a Nascar car for sale on E-bay and the description stated that you could run landspeed.
I was wondering if it actually could. I realize it would need lots of other systems. Thats why I said Structurally could it. Was asking the Masters of Speed.

. . . and Time Only doesn't have any records (yet), if that's your goal.

  Advertising a  Nascar type vehicle could run landspeed is no doubt related to the ECTA and LTA they each have a class for records for that type of car. Speeds up to 250 MPH have been run at the runway events they hold.
