    I wouldn't run a 6 point without a HANS. Better to run 4 point ASM.

    Why is that?

    Also I believe NJMP doesn't allow 4-point in an open car, right Croc?

    6 point without HANS increases risk of a cervical spine injury in a big impact. There's a reason why they're required in most racing orgs. Generally 4 point ASM harnesses considered equivalent to a 3 point belt (because in a crash they act like one), so any event where a 3 point is allowed, the 4 point ASM should be allowed.

    Correct. NJMP requires open cars to have 5 or 6 point belts, roll bar and arm restraints. No mention of HANS

    4 points not permitted at NJMP
