|How it works:
Computerized timing system by TSI with infrareds at the starting line
and photocells at the finish line - 660 feet or 1/8th mile. You
get ET (elapsed time) and MPH (mile per hour) printouts on each pass.
Computer automatically starts you when cars in both lanes are pre-staged
and then staged. “Once the yellow lights start coming down – you
get ready to GO.”
All race participants must go through tech and wear
applicable safety equipment.
