All 4-wheel vehicles must have two red reflectors of at least 2" diameter each or two 2-inch round red reflectors (DOT stock taillight lenses satisfy this requirement) attached to the rearmost portion of vehicle at each corner. The reflective tape or reflectors must be clearly visible from the rear. LED lights are non-reflective and do not meet this requirement. Motorcycles and ATVís must have one (1) 2" red reflective device.

All bike and quad entries must have one (1) headlight and one (1) taillight. The taillight must be on and operational at all times. The entry may not be allowed to start a Special stage unless the taillight is operational.

Thanks for any insight or clarification.
