Default Over Staging

That will speed up the racing.

Does anyone know the reason for the policy change from NHRA?

I thought that was always the rule.

I think some guys are checking the rollout(depth) to see just where the last staging light "really" is OR how far in can I go before I'm in danger of red lighting or deep staging

I agree with Gregg.
I thought that had been the rule for a long time.

Wink Re: Over Staging

Not sure what the new rule means..
So, if a guy accidentally burns out across the line, he's out?
If a newbie doesn't courtesy stage, he's out?
If a Jr. Dragster or Pro deep- stages, they're out ? Oh wait, they CAN deep -stage.

So did I. I have seen guys accidentally turn on both stage lights before their opponent stages and the starter backed them out to re-stage, but if you went in too deep and turned out the top bulb you were out.

I saw a stocker roll thru, turned off the top bulb BUT was not Redlighted because the opposing racer only had one bulb on ..Needless to say, the offending racer backed up VERY QUICKLY .....

Like Gregg and Mike I thought they removed deep staging and turning on both light then backing out. I think it use to mess up the staging timer. Every time I see it now I question why the same folks do it on a normal routine and are allowed. Usually I have to wait to make sure my dial is correct before I pre-stage as the pair in front are still running their race. I try not have a senior moment by mistake. Many years ago we did a couple dry hops after the burn out.

I was watching the feed from Orlando when a stocker went in to deep during eliminations and didn't get a red. I thought he should have gone red. Maybe people questioned why not.
