Now this is what Iím hated for, as the faster car is caching up I turn my brake lights on to make it look like i'm putting on my brakes but i'm not.
I have bin bracket racing for 9 years at 75-80 speedway in Monrovia, MD or at Mason Dixon dragway in Hagerstown md
You redlight, I win. That happens a bunch. Just a different point of view so don't take offense.
In bracket racing I'd rather be faster. Consistency is irrelevant cause I'm gonna have a dial in I know I can hit. Once I pass you I whoa it down.
I've won both ways. As you know, if you nail the light and nail your time you've won. It all has a factor. Screw up the launch and you've lost or you resort to mind games to win at the end. I've been behind and stayed next to them long enough to have them break out while I whoa it down so I don't. I lose but I win.
I will say this- regardless of faster or slower it is probably one of the biggest mind games you can play. The fact that you recognize that and manipulate it means you are a player. It's fun and a LOT of people don't get it.
