I would love that! I could learn a lot by comparing my estimate on how much I got (or didn't get) the stripe by with what the timeslip says.

When you think about it: All the catagories that run a Pro Tree, TF,FC,PS, SG, etc. already have the TruStart, the worst redlight is the loser. Been that way for years. Seems simple enough to utilize it across the board.

With about a third of the field hammering the brakes at the 1000' mark, this will clearly benefit the spectators on understanding how class racing works.

I think on one of my time runs on Saturday, that happened. I noticed something happened, but did not know they were running TruStart.

I must be missing something. FS & Pinto Wagon race and Pinto redlights. Green shows? And if they both RL both race to the line not knowing this? When is the RL "unvieled"? I'm thinking new Can O Worms.

Red light is illuminated as soon as the second car leaves so drivers can look at the scoreboard and will know that there was a red light issue.

Yup!


Our local track announcer likes to compare it to a poker game. You don't know who wins until everyone shows their hand.
