OK Guys I found out what happened to the trap speeds in Roswell. Members of the Roswell Drag Racing Association went out and squared the track with some laser transit device. Apparently the roll out was different from one lane to the other, one lane was longer thatn the other, etc. Now the track is perfectly squared. Good Thing!
However, when they layed out the trap speed (MPH lights) they placed them 60 ft prior to the finish line. Apparently, they should be 66 feet apart. Consequently, your speed is now measured over 60 feet instead of the standard 66. Track management was made aware of the error and is said to be double checking with the manufacturer of the timing system to be sure and then he'll fix the error.
