Will an older Class 12 Raceco pass SCORE inspection?

Anyone familiar with Class 12 Raceco chassis from early 2000's (possibly late 90's) and whether it will pass SCORE inspection without replacing tubes due to thickness? The chassis is in Texas. Art says the pictures look fine but needs to use the ultra sound to verify tube thickness. Unfortunately, SCORE won't see the car in person until it arrives in Ensenada for the Baja 500 and it would suck if it doesn't pass due to tube thickness.

I've had several 90's Mirage chassis and each of them had to have the same tubes replaced. Same for older Lothringers, etc. Hoping someone knows if there are certain tubes in older Raceco's that typically need to be replaced due to thickness.

Is there a way somebody in Texas might be able to do the test prior to it coming west ? There are plenty of drag race shops that might be able to do this

Yep, he already mic'd a hole and that tube was fine but there's a concern that other tubes are thinner. Rather than drill every tube in the cage area he plans to bring the car to San Diego a couple weeks before the Baja 500 to get SCORE inspected. Long drive from Dallas.
