darren i believe racing oil pans are ok. since it's not adding any performance only helping keep the engine oiled. the for sure way to know is to email chuck or call the number in the rules.

I used one all last season and it was never an issue. I will not have the same on there this year as it will not hold oil real well given the big hole in the side of it.

I think as long as it is a "stock style" racing pan it should be ok. nothing with a kick out or any other unusual shape.

thats what I was told last season Aaron. Stock appearing pan. I guess that means it can have all the baffles and scrapers you want, just NO kick outs or what have you.

This one from speedway has NO kick outs...

heres another that is strictly stock appearing but has the baffles, scrapers etc....
