Final Qualifying Orders of the 1995 Northwest Nationials from Seattle, Washington

The following information is courtesy of Les Welch

A new option is being given to the Top Fuel and Funny Car teams beginning with the Mopar Parts Mile-High Nationals at Denver, Colorado. An "emergency shut-off button" has been installed in each lane which, when activated by one of the crew members, will turn on lights located at the eighth-mile signaling the driver to shut the car off. This is an out-growth of something that you may have noticed happening at national events this year ... a crewman of Kenny Bernstein's waving a towell to tell Kenny to shut the car down if all was not going as was intended. Both Dale Armstrong and Dick LaHaie said they like having the option.
