For 2008, I upgraded the entire Pit Crew Challenge timing system from 1/100 resolution to 1/1000 resolution. The teams are so evenly matched….they use the same equipment, they train the same way, they use the same coaches; like any NASCAR race out on the track, the PCC is extremely close competition.
The upgrade came in handy. In the Skills competition, the Top 10 in each discipline were covered by about 1.5 seconds.
Here’s the Lynx image of the closest finish – 2 vs 31. Decided by 0.052 seconds.
