Old post but, I knew of a N/TF team that used a push bar, Would clip the bar to the chassis at the end of the run to push back to the pits. Along the way back to the pits they were required to stop at the scales to check weight. Oh--- did I mention that it took 2 guys to lift and install the pushbar to the chassis

I've seen some interesting ways to add weight while hitting the scales.  That is a new one.

I have a friend that uses the ball and socket from a trailer sway bar on his push bar.
