Today's blog is aimed at helping those of my many readers who actually race on the drag strip... Many drag racing "experts" seem to be in complete agreement with yours truly, that most drag races are won or lost on the starting line, more specifically speaking, as a result of racers quick reactions (or lack of) to the illuminating bulbs on the christmas tree... Your ability to execute a better "reaction time" on the tree, a quicker reaction time than your opponent in the other lane, has a significant bearing as to whether or not you'll be the racer who is handed the winning timeslip -- That's why, as we now enter drag racing's so-called "off season" (in most parts of the country and world), I urge all my racing readers to get more acquainted with some sort of electronic practice tree device. "Practice Trees" come in a variety of forms, from conservatively priced hand-held sized models, to the more pricey full-sized practice trees... No matter where your preference or budget leans, I strongly suggest that you get your hands on some type of practice tree, and spend some of your leisure time, possibly even making a daily routine of it, practicing the sharpening of your reaction time skills. You'll thank me for pushing you in this direction once racing season starts again, and you're able to activate the winlight more than you did last season... Check with your local speed shop or mail order racing merchandise dealer, and find a practice tree that suits your need and buy it... If you already have a practice tree stashed away in your closet, find it, take it out, dust it off and get busy...  Like I said earlier, most drag races are won or lost on the starting line, by who is able to react faster on the christmas tree (and doing so without triggering the dreaded red bulb), so do yourself a big favor, and make friends with a practice tree this winter...  It's an easy thing to do, and it can pay off in winning drag racing dividends...
