The issue with 56-foot race trailers on California highways appears to be over per an email sent to CompetitionPlus.com via Sen. Mimi Walters' office.
The state currently limits particular trailer rigs to 53-feet in length. Newly signed SB 1174 by Gov. Jerry Brown will enable the NHRA teams to legally use the longer trailers on the state's highways.
"This ensures that 56-foot motorsports semitrailers will be legal in California, as they are in all 49 other states, while vitalizing the state’s economy and maintaining our reputation as a premier racing destination,'' Walters told the L.A. Times. "Now teams from across the country will continue to participate in high profile racing events held in California.”
Prior to this bill, teams were allowed to purchase a special permit to drive on California highways with the 56-foot trailers.
