Default Broomstick test with a hardtop?

Just bought another miata that i'm making my track car, and I have a question about the "broomstick test" rule for Convertibles.

Does this "test" still apply even when you have a hardtop on the car?

IE, will NASA make me remove the hardtop to show them that I can pass the broomstick test while in the paddock @ say VIR or Summit Point?

Unless something changed recently, if you have a hardtop installed you are not given the broomstick test.

To those that asked... your rollbar must extend over your helmet the width of a broomstick.

Yeah, but it doesnt have to do with me being fat.

It has to do with me being 6'2 in a car designe for 5'6 azns.
