SOURCE CONFIRMS: NOW THERE WILL BE NO WIN LIGHTS IN QUALIFYING
Two weeks ago, the NHRA, according to Compulink timing system founder Bob Brockmeyer, planned to change the win light format in qualifying signifying the quicker run. Another source close to the situation confirmed the NHRA reversed their decision last week to the traditional procedure but as of Monday decided to do away with the win-light altogether in qualifying. Now only elapsed time and speeds will illuminate following the respective runs.
That's right no win light at all now in qualifying.
And maybe this will suit the readers of CompetitionPlus.com fine since 43-percent of the 3,500-plus votes cast said just to leave the traditional measure in place. Another 32-percent voted that it really didn't matter. Only 25-percent were in favor of the proposal.
Facebook follower Bill Anderson offered, "If a newbie didn't understand what was going on, in my experience the stands are filled with friendly knowledgable folk that are more than happy to chat and explain things."
Joe Percoco offered, "Forget the win lights and put the qualifying order for the class running on the big screen and change it after each run so fans can see who moved up, down or out."
