Definition

As it applies to drag racing, the beams refers to a light beam projected across a lane of a drag strip. A race car's front tires breaks this beam when it crosses it for a timing event. On a 1/4 miles drag strip, there will be a beam for:

  • Lighting the prestaging lights
  • Lighting the staging lights
  • The start of the race
  • The 60' mark
  • The 330' mark
  • The 1/8 mph calculation start
  • The 1/8 mile mark
  • The 1000' mark
  • The 1/4 mile mph start
  • The 1/4 mile finish line

This is used to record timing on the racer's Time Slip.
