REDDING, Calif. --
With the timing system not working in the left lane, NHRDA officials came up with a backup plan for each class in the MBRP Diesel Drag Racing Series. For the heads-up classes (ie Pro Stock, Pro Street and Super Street) the racers would utilize the Christmas tree like usual, but the NHRDA would put an official at the finish line to judge who crossed the line first to decide the winner of each race.
"The idea for this came from the NHRDA race director Jason Murray, he walked out of the tower for a couple of minutes and came back in with this scenario and we put it to the racers and each one loved the idea," said NHRDA President Randy Cole.
There was also a first, as the Andrea Coddens became the first ever woman to win an NHRDA Pro Street event.
