    staging lane chip system

    Can anyone please explain the staging lane chip system ? i just started drag racing last season and I don't under stand when the official is pulling chips out of the pouch and assigning lane choice ? I was actually put at the back of line at one event for moving up in an empty lane which we were encouraged to use . I'm just trying to not make the same mistakes .

    A lot of tracks pull chips, but I can say a lot of tracks do it totally different you need the track offical to explain it to you the best before 1st round next time

    My track uses playing cards. 4 staging lanes each lane is assigned a suit spade,club,heart,diamond. First card pulled races second card pulled. We had used the same system for first round byes so if you went to the empty lane usually lane 1 by us, you had a 25% chance of a bye. Now we run the bye off the best reaction time in the second round of qualifying. Not sure if your chips are marked with lanes. I am sure this was of no help but i am curious how other tracks do it...

    It's always best to ask, but thats a new one on me.

    I've been to tracks where they pair cars up after the 4th or 5th round with best reaction time getting lane choice.

    The track I currently race at uses playing cards to determine the bye run in the later rounds, usually starting in the 5th.
    All bye run candiates draw a single card, high card getting the bye.
    I've never had much luck at getting that elusive HIGH card, I usually draw a 2 or 3 :shock: :evil:
