Below is a list of all the members of the Dacotah Speedway Safety Committee:

Every car that races at Dacotah Speedway needs to be inspected by one of these members
before it will be allowed to race.  The inspection checklist is below for your reference.

The purpose of this inspection is to make sure that all the cars racing at Dacotah Speedway are safe to keep the driver and all other participants safe in the event of a wreck.

If you would like one of the members to come and take a look at your car please call them. If you would like to bring your car to one of two locations to have it looked at you will need to talk to Ivan Sailer or Lonny Magstadt.

This is a mandatory inspection.  With the increased car counts we need to ensure that all
cars are safe enough to compete.  We will also be inspecting cars at the Mall car show and at Test & Tune on April 26th.

Below is the Safety Tech Inspection checklist that will be used for the 2014 racing season at Dacotah Speedway.
