Many sanctioning bodies are now mandating “pour in place” seat inserts
WATERLOO, ONTARIO (July 4, 2014) – When it comes to drag racing, speed is obviously important, but a more vital factor is safety.
A relatively new product in drag racing is the form-fitting engineered seat for the driver, and dozens of teams in the Pro Modified Racing Association and the Quick 32 Sportsman Series have installed custom seats from Dragstar.ca and Innovative Safety Products, who support both the drag racing series.
“Dragstar.ca is trying to make the PMRA and Quick 32 Sportsman Series drivers safer,” said Dragstar.ca’s Marc McCrae, who has been preparing and installing the seats for five years. “We make drivers more consistent, more comfortable, and more confident.”
