Economy Software Package for Eliminator Next Gen and
Eliminator Super 2000 Competition Track Systems
The Eliminator Competition Drag Race Software is designed specifically for Economy Track Systems. It offers many great features from our Professional Software Suite at a fraction of the price! The Economy Drag Race Software allows track operators to run races, store results, create race categories, and enter racer information quickly and easily from a computer. Upgrades for scoreboard and announcer support are also available. Tracks requiring more advanced features such as qualifying, ladders, and points tallying should consider the Professional Software Suite, which is also compatible with the Eliminator Competition Track Timers.
The Eliminator Competition Drag Race Software is an optional addition to Portatree Economy Track Systems. For tracks expecting over 100 entries on race day, Portatree highly recommends purchasing at least the Basic Database Software (Main Program) to allow race operators to quickly run vehicles and store results.
The Basic Database Software is the main program of the Eliminator Competition Drag Race Software Package. It includes the Drag Race Program and Post Process Program. The Post Process Program refers to the Racer Entry, Category Editor, Datalog, and Administrator Editor.
