That sound like going over your dial-in score.
Bracket drag racing is a handicap system that allows slower cars to compete against faster cars. Before you race, you practice and pick your dial-in time. Say 10 seconds. Then you race other cars with similar dial-in times. If I (10 seconds) race against someone with a 9 second dial-in time, I get my green light 1 second before he does. No matter who gets their green first, you want to beat the other driver, but stay above your dial-in time. If I win, but my ET is 9.99 seconds and the other guys time is 9.01, he wins. I blew (went under) my dial-in time. If both driver go under their dial-in time, the one closer to his dial in time wins. Prevents sandbagging. Not a very catch name, but same kind of deal. Kick ass, but don't kick ass too hard.
Agree with Keith about palming and thumbing. Those are old school sayings.
