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.
