Steve I agree but I'm pretty sure no track has that tree. That tree is made specifically for NHRA national events to the tune of $20k so the best a track can do is replace their yellow incandescent prestage and stage bulbs with blue incandescent bulbs...
While I am all for things to increase fan awareness and interest, I don't know this is it. Not very aesthetically pleasing. As far as tree readers I don't know what the side would do vs the front.This message has been edited. Last edited by: BG7X77,
I think the idea there is so the fans can see the lights better to know more what is going on. I understand that, but also thinks that is may open the door for more opportunity to cheat?

This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.
Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.

While I have zero proof anyone is or has used a tree reader, I know it could be done.......will or has someone I have no idea. With a million on the line it would make a lot of people think.
Back to the tree.....it is pretty ugly.....I think it looks like a design by committee....we have to do something different thinking doesn't always end well
On another note.....I do like the idea of replacing yellow incandescent with blue.....I am going to recommend that to our track manager he considers that. Will he change them.....I don't know but someone has to ask.
