The Paging Lanes: Excellent No-Prep Article in Performance
Racing Industry Magazine

cover story on No Prep Drag Racing. You can read the
article along with the whole issue HERE.
Be Afraid Of The Deep
is a reprint of my Bracket Racing 101 column
from Drag Racer Magazine. If you're struggling
to cut good lights then deep-staging should be considered.
my columns Take Action For Reaction and Take Action For Reaction
Part II, I discussed the two major components that comprise
reaction time - the driver’s reaction to the tree and
the vehicle’s reaction to the driver. The latter is
somewhat easily adjusted: if the vehicle is leaving too quickly
or too slowly the driver can leave at a different RPM, change
the pressure of the slicks, or change the travel of the front
suspension. But in the case of the driver’s reaction
time, what can be done if he or she is just inherently slow?
Remember, both components of reaction time must equal .500
in order to equal a .000 light (assuming a 5-tenths tree).

at work designing new t-shirts, and I think I came up with
