Where Did Those Digital Flags Go?

You may notice that the Digital Flags have not been in use. We are in the process of improving our infrastructure which includes at this time providing electricity to the corner stations on track. This project is being carried out with future growth in mind as well. During this changeover all the Digital Safety Flags will be brought in from the track to receive software updates, internal component upgrades, and AC conversions by Race America.

We expect to have them reinstalled and working better than ever within a few weeks.
