Racing the Convertible=Rollbar?

I have heard rumors the rules will be changing for a lower ET for a requirement of a roll Cage for Convertibles. Anybody else heard this?

I'm not sure about changing anything but the 2012 rule is a roll bar is required for any convertible 13.49 and quicker.

The technically you should be ok. I thought all verts needed a bar but in the NHRA rule book it said 13.49 and faster. All they can do is ask you to slow it down shall you go to fast.
