CYA!

Cover yo azz! I know for a fact that progressive send agents to HRP, and records license plates of all drag participants (cars and bikes) and cancels their policies. I would not be suprised if this currently, or will soon carry over to other tracks. I also work in the collision repair industry and I know that USAA is raising premiums, and even canceling policies for people with aftermarket indash entertainment systems, lowered suspensions, bodykits, exhaust system, and any of the as they put it "fast and furious type accessories" that would suggest racing activity. I of course don't turn anyone in, but I inform the customers that they need to be careful, because big insurance is out to pick on everybody in the scene because of a few bad apples.

Re: CYA!

Bikes at HRP? yes
At other tracks, I do not know. I deal almost entirely with automobile repair. However, I stop at the gas station right before HRP and take my license plate off any time I race. you progressive bike insurance! :mumum:

I'm just thinking it would a smart idea to take the license plate off at TWS (Texas World Speedway), or other tracks of the sort... I know it's something I will do.

Re: CYA!

you need to take off the license plate at the road race track to have it pass inspection.

Re: CYA!

I pitted with a guy that worked for USAA last year. I am not saying he was out there checking up on people but he could have easily done so. Although he proly wouldnt have said he worked for USAA if he was up to no good. Just an FYI
