NEW WIN LIGHT FORMAT STARTING AT WINTERNATIONALS
Competition Plus has learned that there will be a new WIN LIGHT format starting at NHRA’s Winternationals Feb. 8-11 in Pomona, Calif.
Announcers, led by Alan Reinhart, asked for this change and it was approved by NHRA’s Senior Vice President of Racing Operations Graham Light.
Whereas the WIN LIGHT during qualifying has always shown the first across, the new format will show who made the best run, so a car with a late R/T but better ET will get the WIN LIGHT, regardless of who crossed first.
This will apply only during qualifying in the Pros. Reinhart and gang are trying to help with the newcomers understanding what is actually going on down the track.
Compulink has created the software as a courtesy to help this effort.
