Short answer is no.

I'm assuming we are referring to the 3 wheeled sport bike looking things?

Hmmm, rollover is a consideration, but before someone goes to a lot of trouble to prove that it won't roll or to modify it so that it can't roll, keep in mind that the primary reason it can't run is that it's a motorcycle and motorcycles are not allowed to run.

we had one show up at a PCA even this year. Even given PCAs vary loose autocross safety standards they decided against letting them run based off of them being classed as a motorcycle and concerns about insurance if something did happen.
