Come up with some sort of speed arresting equipment, #3. More flame retardant chute material.

If I was a betting man, I'd say that they will be working on a whole new set of rules to slow the cars down. Limit compression ratio, smaller superchargers. They should lower the max diplacement also, IMO.
I think they should try to limit the speeds as you say. I notice that the speeds and elapsed times are not all that different at 1000 feet. I guess that gives them additioinal shut off length so that's good but the speeds are still too high. JMO, however.

I'm not a drag racer but I like to watch the sport and I don't want to see anyone get hurt or killed.
