Head and Neck Restraints Recertification Required

Head and Neck Restraints Recertification Required

The Automobile Racing Club of America continues to require that head and neck restraints are certified every five years to receive the SFI Foundation's conformance sticker.

Devices passing the inspection will receive a new 38.1 conformance sticker marked with the inspection date. Devices rarely fail the recertification inspection, but regularly need replacement rubber on the legs or have tethers that are more than five years old and need to be replaced.

More information is available by contacting Jaymee Beard, Safety Initiative liaison for ARCA, at (734) 847-6726 or jbeard@arcaracing.com.
