Montpelier Motor Speedway To Utilize Westhold Transponder Scoring System in 2014.

The Montpelier Motor Speedway beginning with the 2014 season will utilize a Westhold Race Management System. The system, utilizing a scoring loop underneath the track at the finish line, will produce 100% race accurate scoring along with providing by lap race positioning, lap times, and lap speed. On the initial onset of the 2014 season a Westhold transponder will be required in the Midget and UMP Modifieds divisions along with NRA Sprint Invaders and BOSS Sprint programs. Over the course of the season, transponder scoring will also be phased into the Super Street and Thunder Car divisions. The FWD Compact and Mod Lites divisions will not be required to use them at this time.

The system requires that each car in the mandated division to carry a Westhold transponder (Model: 2180-001 – Yellow in Color) which features a rechargeable battery and is covered by a three year warranty. The system is commonly used throughout at tracks locally and throughout the country and the Montpelier Motor Speedway system is fully compatible with these systems. The race management system will also offer the ability to qualify cars for special programs individually along with the option of group qualifying. Lap times, lap speed, scoring position on the race track, and other information will be generated following the races and provided by the track’s website to provide race teams with race feedback.

The Montpelier Motor Speedway will also be working with software vendors to research the possibility of providing the following features: Live Timing & Scoring via the Montpelier Motor Speedway website that will provide online Lap Times, Lap Speed & Lap Scoring that will be accessible at the speedway via mobile devices.
