Tech Inspection

bring your own tech sheets!

All cars are required to go through a Technical Inspection on site at Midnight Mayhem.  Just like at an SAE event, cars may not be operated until Tech has been fully passed.  As we do an abbreviated inspection, all competing cars are required to have an official Passed Tech sticker from an SAE event occurring in 2013-2018.  If you are competing in the Sundown Showdown your car must pass tech on Friday October 12th!  Plan your travel accordingly to allow time to get through.  Please do not show up on site an hour before Tech closes!!


required for all on site!

Students, advisors, spectators, and volunteers are all required to sign a waiver prior to or upon arrival at Midnight Mayhem!  You will not be permitted access to the site until you have done so.  Signing your waivers online ahead of time will speed up your check in time significantly so go ahead and do it.  It just takes a couple of minutes!

Midnight Mayhem Rules
