I'm not sure what exactly you are talking about, but it's probably bracket racing. In bracket racing you mark a time on the window and they set the light delayed on the faster car so theoretically they both cross the finish line together. If you go faster than your marked time it's called a breakout and you lose, unless the other car also breakouts but by a larger margin. It doesn't effect the capability of the car or the numbers on the printout, it just makes for fun way to test drivers ability for reaction times and consistently of making a run. Bracket racing is a drivers competition, not so much a car competition.
