The Open Comp "style" of drag racing, is an exciting pro tree hybrid version of bracket racing. The two basic differences is that drivers leave off a pro tree start as opposed to a sportsman tree. The pro tree forces a driver to really have to test their driving skills, and hone up on their reaction times! The second big difference is that instead of dialing in like at a typical bracket race, they will be given an index that is based upon their cars performance during qualifying. The index is typically shaving a full tenth or two tenths of a second faster than their qualifying, The index forces the driver to have to react quickly at the starting line, and then race their car all out full throttle to the finish line, and removes the "comfort zone" that a typical bracket race has to offer. When you combine the pro tree start with the faster index, it makes the open comp style racing a lot more competitive than your "typical bracket race"
Affordability! The open comp style of drag racing is a class formulated to highlight a drivers racing skills, as opposed to focusing on just how quickly, and fast their car can go down the race course. Because of this philosophy qualifying is completely based upon a drivers reaction time on the starting line. A drivers skills is all that stands behind them and the number one qualifying position, and all the rewards that come with that prestigious title!
Drag Racers are very competitive by nature, and open comp provides them the chance to prove that their driving skills are superior enough to become the number one qualifier, as opposed to how much money they have to spend on their car!
Now instead of having to spend thousands of dollars to make their cars go fast, they can instead enjoy the challenge of trying to have a near perfect reaction time!
Our feeling is "NOTHING BUT THE BEST" for everybody here that includes.... The Racers, The Spectators and Track Owners!!
