Drag racing 101.. the Burnout! Woop Ass Wednesday Motorplex
Drag racing 101.. the Burnout! Before each race (also known as a pass),
each driver is allowed to perform a burnout, which heats the driving tires
and lays rubber down at the beginning of the track, improving traction.
Each driver then lines up (or stages) at the starting line. Races are
started electronically by a system known as a Christmas tree. The Christmas
tree consists of a column of lights for each driver/lane, one blue, then
three amber, one green, and one red, connected to light beams on the track.
The first, a split blue open circle, is split into two halves. When the
first light beam is broken by the vehicle's front tire(s) indicate that the
driver has pre-staged (approximately 7 inches (180 mm) from the starting
line), lights the first half of the blue circle, and then staged (at the
starting line), which lights up the second half of the blue circle, and
also the corresponding bar in the middle of that circle.

Intro to Drag racing at Perth Motorplex with Brett Stewart
Before each race (also known as a pass), each driver is allowed to perform
a burnout, which heats the driving tires and lays rubber down at the
beginning of the track, improving traction. Each driver then lines up (or
stages) at the starting line. Races are started electronically by a system
known as a Christmas tree. The Christmas tree consists of a column of
lights for each driver/lane, one blue, then three amber, one green, and one
red, connected to light beams on the track. The first, a split blue open
circle, is split into two halves. When the first light beam is broken by
the vehicle's front tire(s) indicate that the driver has pre-staged
(approximately 7 inches (180 mm) from the starting line), lights the first
half of the blue circle, and then staged (at the starting line), which
lights up the second half of the blue circle, and also the corresponding
bar in the middle of that circle. 
Below the blue "staged" light are three large amber lights, a green light,
and a red light. When both drivers are staged, the tree is activated to
start the race, which causes the three large amber lights to illuminate,
followed by the green light. There are two standard light sequences: either
the three amber lights flash simultaneously, followed 0.4 seconds later by
the green light (a Pro tree), or the ambers light in sequence from top to
bottom, 0.5 seconds apart, followed 0.5 seconds later by the green light (a
Sportsman tree, or full tree). If the front tires leaves from a stage beam
(stage and pre-stage lights both turned off) before the green light
illuminates, the red light for that driver's lane illuminates instead,
indicating disqualification (unless a more serious violation occurs). Once
a driver commits a red-light foul (also known as redlighting), the other
driver can also commit a foul start by leaving the line too early but still
win, having left later. Should both drivers leave after the green light
illuminates, the one leaving first is said to have a holeshot advantage.
The winner is the first vehicle to cross the finish line (and therefore the
driver with the lowest total reaction time and elapsed time). The elapsed
time is a measure of performance only; it does not necessarily determine
the winner. Because elapsed time does not include reaction time and each
lane is timed individually, a car with a slower elapsed time can actually
win if that driver's holeshot advantage exceeds the elapsed time
difference. This is known as a holeshot win.
Several measurements are taken for each race: reaction time, elapsed time,
and speed. Reaction time is the period from the green light illuminating to
the vehicle leaving the starting line. Elapsed time is the period from the
vehicle leaving the starting line to crossing the finish line. Speed is
measured through a speed trap covering the final 66 feet (20 m) to the
finish line, indicating the approximate maximum speed of the vehicle during
In the standard racing format, the losing car and driver are removed from
the contest, while the winner goes on to race other winners, until only one
