Your insurance doesn't cover you at the track anyway so WTF is the problem?

I just need my Ins to cover me from all the crazy drivers while I am on the street,I am perfectly safe at the drag strip.

Can anyone in the Insurance industry answer this?
Insurance is the management of risk. In their eyes, as a drag racer, they apparently, for whatever their reason, don't feel the "Drag racer" is a good risk.

To get the reason, you would have to speak with the underwriter to get their thoughts behind it.

Especially considering the fraction of the car's physical value (not to mention sentimental) value that he's getting back from insurance.

Sure, a lot of people in Oklahoma are in worse situations, but that's not putting it into perspective all. Putting it into perspective is pointing out that children are starving in Africa and you piled too much food on your plate at the buffet. We can't feel bad for everyone and we can't help everyone in a bad spot. If we did we would all be miserable depressed wrecks, with nothing to show for it.

I'll donate, because we share a passion and I really feel for him right now. As a community we share that passion and to see anybody dragged down like this just flat out blows. My Camaro pales in comparison, but I'd be lying if I said I would not be in a rough place, both financially and mentally, in a similar situation. It's great that the community rallied around him so much, and I would be touched to see the same thing happen if I lost my mediocre Camaro.
Terry, it's guys like you that make this community great! Couldn't have said it better myself

It's the risks...........People have wrecked their cars on the track, and have stage the scene elsewhere to get paid!!!

You wreck you car in street racing, etc, or anything perceived as racing related accident...........and your SOL

Curious what insurance comapny/policy you guys think will cover performance mods for a DD?

I have geico and went to add my mods, they removed the exhaust and intake, but kept the lighting, paint, cosmetic stuff.

Is there anyway to get a policy that can insure my other mods?

Thats strange I have geico as well, I called them to add my mods after seeing what happend to Stig and they didnt question any of the mods to include exhaust, headers, intake, suspension. They added with no questions asked. Now maybe you are trying to put it in the wrong sections they added all of my parts on my comprehensive portion. I dont think that me being in the military makes a difference in their eyes as far as additions to the car.

Here is my email after adding my mods online.

"We completed your request to update your vehicle information. Your premium will remain the same.

To ensure smooth claims handling, please make sure to retain all of the receipts for your customizations.

We are unable to cover performance modifications (such as engine, transmission, intake, or exhaust upgrades), lifts higher than six inches, or equipment designed for off-road use, since these types of equipment are used for activities not covered under your automobile policy contract.

I will, im thinking it might be my location? Maybe it is state to state or region to region.

Cause I flat out asked, what do I need to do to insure my mods, and they replied:

"Unfortunately, we do not have an affiliate company that would cover your vehicle for the exhaust customization on your vehicle. We are sorry that we are unable to cover your modified exhaust system on your 2012 Chevrolet."

I guess I complained enough, I got a call from an underwriter saying she added the exhaust, so the sent new policy documents with the exhaust added.

Weird. Im gonna save this lady's number so I dont have to jump through hoops every time I add something.

I have Geico also, they only question they asked me is if I race my car. She called it a Racecar. I said nope my headers and exhaust are just to make it sound meaner. We both laughed. I don't think they are stupid.

WOW! Seriously, what a great group of people here on the site!

Just curious, have you found anything out that could have caused it?

I really hope to see you get back into another sweet Camaro!
