If you leave early without notifying the event chair you will not be allowed into future events.

4. Your car is required to pass tech inspection before participating at the event. A vehicle that will pass a state safety inspection will usually have no problem. Do not bring a vehicle with known mechanical problems, leaking fluids or is otherwise unsafe.
