Here’s How it Works: A simple, yet effective design is accomplished by utilizing an electrical system. Complete track and loading area control is done from a control panel (shown to the right). Not only can you shut down the entire track instantly, you control power to different areas (or zones) of the track. Race lane power comes on automatically at the start of a race. Within a few seconds race lane power shuts off automatically.

Braking and returns are simple and safe. There are two braking methods. One is a manual brake controlled by the driver. An automatic brake comes on when a dragster crosses the finish line. After the finish line there is no power. When a dragster crosses the finish line, a sensor within the motor control senses this and applies an automatic brake. When both dragsters come to a complete stop, a track attendant turns on low voltage momentary to power dragsters to the return lanes. These lanes are powered by low voltage for a slow return speed. When ever there is a lose of power or it is turned off by track attendants, the brakes engage automatically. We have proven the Funny Car Dragsters to be safe, exciting and a winner!
