    Final Decision

    Final decision on any Harley Drags ruling lies with sponsors, House of Harley-Davidson or Great Lakes Dragaway officials.

    *Example of the Dial In Handicap* -Here is how it works. If racer A chooses a dial of 16.00 and racer B chooses a dial of 14.50, racer A will get 1.5 second head start. If both racers cover the quarter-mile in exactly the same time as their dial-ins, then the win will go to the racer with the best reaction time, or to which racer reacts quickest to the green light on the Christmas Tree.
    If a racer runs quicker than his or hers dial-in, he or she is said to “break out” and is disqualified. If both racers run quicker than their dial-ins, the win goes to the racer who breaks out by the least. A red-light or foul start, takes precedent over a breakout, so a racer who red-lights is automatically disqualified even if his or her opponent breaks out.
