Any FFW racers in here? I got some questions.

What is a "Permanent FFW numbers required." ?

I was wanting to see about taking my truck down to the next FFW event and was wondering what I might need to do. I want to race in the Tough Truck class.

I read over the FFW rules and my truck meets all of those. It just depends on the IHRA or NHRA rules. It only runs high 8's in the 1/8 mile so what kind of saftey equipment is a must?

Also what day is this class ran on Saturdays or Sundays? I can't tell from the event schedule.

For permanent FFW numbers all you have to do is go to their web site Just join the organization and you can put on there what numbers you want. Or just take whatever number they want to give you. The number just has to follow TT and I think not completely sure that the numbers this year can be done by shoepolish and does not have to be permanent. The safety equipment is the same as with NHRA since that is most of the tracks they run at governing body. This should be a help on what you need or do not read. They also run 1/4 with the TT class. Heres the link

Good luck I enjoy running both FFW and NMRA of course I enjoy NMRA a little better but to each their own.
