These rules have been
interpreted to be track and racer friendly.
At any time, any UMP
registered driver may protest any visible or non-visible part on another car
for a fee of $100 per part.
If the car being
protested is found legal then said car shall receive $50 with $25 going to
the track and $25 going to UMP per part.
If said car is found illegal, the protester will receive $50 with $25 going

We hope that the
