The rules of that race state staging will be done with the rear wheels. Starting line performance is gauged using 40-foot times and speed is calculated at 1300 feet... :eek!:

Good to see the "racers board" knows how to race. Did they also double bulb each other as well? :rolleyes:

Because of a few hours of inclimate weather,Travis dropped the T6p race so the regular race program could be run.So there are no results to post.

OK that answers my question.

With five more Buick events left in the year perhaps it can be rescheduled.

Lordy, well I just hope he was able to 'bless the track' as the poll over there determined should happen. :loser:

I hear all sorts of stories from people how their pets "blessed" the new carpet or sofa and they seem less than impressed about it :dunno:

I'm sure it had nothing to do with the car count being low at the nats.... Maybe bowling green has a Wawa and they were having street racing with the locals so couldn't attend.

With only a few classes and many of those filled I doubt a few hours of rain would have effected anyone’s race program.

You’re spinning Otto….

Strange how the GSCA and other board claim great turnout and staging lanes full. The low or no turnout in the classes speak better truth :sw: Nothing to spin

>>> While surfing the NHRA website I found this:

What is a Drag Race?
In basic terms, a drag race is an acceleration contest from a standing start between two vehicles over a measured distance at a specifically designed drag race facility. The accepted standard for that distance is either a quarter-mile or an eigth-mile. These contests are started by means of an electronic device commonly called a "Christmas Tree." Upon leaving the starting line, each contestant activates a timer which is, in turn, stopped when the same vehicle reaches the finish line. The start-to-finish clocking is the vehicle's E.T. (elapsed time), which serves to measure performance and often serves to determine handicaps during competition.

From personal experience I can honestly say I have been at more of the losing end of the above definition but I just wanted to go back to basics in my attempt to help unite a commuity.

Thank you and good night.

Hey Rich, it doesn't say anything at all about starting with the front wheels. Guess the head of the racers board knows something we don't know... He'll have to show us that trick next time we see him at the track. Having a 15-foot start sure would help my win record, which is about on par with yours...

You know Artie, I hate those damn "server problems". I think they must use the same tech support as the gsca board, they both seem to have the same chronic problem....
