That could slowdown the urinal line due to the odoriferously challenged. 🤥💩

If you have not seen the scoreboard at GALOT Motorsports Park, check out the PDRA race on speed video in early April. They are head and shoulders above anything at any other track. Large video screens that displays the times and when they are reset, it has advertisement on them. Last year, during a rain delay, they had the gators on the screens to watch the GALOT PMs.

Norwalk would only have to install 4, unless they had battery powered wireless screens for the porta-potties!!

Probably one reason Jimmy Prock does not want to tune for him because prock is about ET, John is about Looking Good.

If you go to instant green, you can still have reaction times but et will be accurate from green to finish line.

Bracket Racing is so close now with most winning packages are .020 so all you would have to do was add .020 to your dial in. still works the same way.

I assume the scoreboards are a money making item for NHRA so they will never give up the time required to keep the fan informed.

I haven't seen them in person, but I've seen them a lot watching races.

Those are the coolest screens I've ever seen at a race track.

IF the object is to WIN it looks like this would be the case on that pass. You won't see Force deep stage during qualifying and that is where the tuner comes in. Lane choice (or looking good) for the next round means nothing after you get beat.

Exactly. And the car that crosses the finish line first in qualifying "wins". So either leave things as they are, or leave the win lights off entirely.

This isn't that big of a deal, but still, it's another annoying and unnecessary change.

So I guess now they will just be betting on who is driving the quicker car.
