Let There Be Lights!
We have new starting lights for the 2016 racing season. Lights To Go made the system. There is one for each lane, and one points up to the tower and crowd so they can enjoy the same action that the racers do!
Groth Manufacturing designed the stands and made them with 2 inch square aluminum tubing. Previously, the NIDBA had just one light on the starting barge. This made it difficult to see. Now, how the lights work, is on red racers stop at the starting line to pair up, then the yellow comes on. When the racers are lined up and ready, the starter hits the green…And then the racers are off! Another new thing to make the races even better is the control box. The new control box lights up so the starter can see what light he or she has active.
