How can Crew Chief Pro Junior Software help Me? ( Click Here to Watch a Detailed Video on Crew Chief Pro- Note: Very Long Video )
Crew Chief Pro Junior is an electronic logbook that also calculates ET predictions and does Run Analysis, Weather Analysis, and Opponent Analysis. It is very powerful and yet easy to use and setup. Crew Chief Pro Junior is designed for Junior Dragster Racers, with all the powerful features you need just like it’s big brother Crew Chief Pro.
I understand what Juniors need because this version has been in development for 12 years. Look at our old Junior picture from 12 years ago. Our children Brett, Dan and Caitlin used it to go more rounds. They also learned finish line driving strategies from Crew Chief Pro’s “Finish Line Manager” in order to win. When you purchase Crew Chief Pro Junior, you have my commitment to provide the same updates, education and product that the Sportsman racers have benefitted from for over 24 years. Don Higgins
Crew Chief Pro Junior Tracks, Analyzes and Calculates performance of your engine in changing weather conditions. Meaning, if you race on Saturday and the weather is 50 degrees and windy, then you race on Sunday and the weather is 75 degrees, humid and no wind, what do you do? Weather measurements are completely different from your Saturday readings but Crew Chief Pro Junior will calculate the correct ET. Crew Chief Pro Junior has other features include graphing, top end coaching tools, similar run analysis and unlimited data bases.
One of our favorite customers is Doug Gordon, his daughters are great drivers. Macie Gordon has won virtually every single race this year. We are NOT kidding, she won 7 events out of 9 and was in the final round each time. This has to be a record. Here is one of the best Junior pilots in the nation! Crew Chief Pro helps Junior Dragster racers win! Doug wrote: Don, well we had a good weekend at the NHRA Div 7 Jr race. We stepped Maddi up to the 7.90 class and she won her her first race in the class. The next day Macie was able to win in the 8.90 class. That gives Macie 2 wins for the year in Div 7 and she is now the points leader. Both classes only had about 14 entries for the weekend(Pretty far out of the way for a lot of people). I am really getting use to the program and is helping out tremendously. The wind was a huge factor this weekend and I was off on my setting in the program for the wind but it still helped feed me the right direction.
On 02/16/2020 Mike Agnew wrote: Hey don. Thanks for the help in phoenix for the division 7 jr race yesterday with the pager issue. We managed to get past the first round without it. After getting it fixed, we went on to win the race in 10-12.
Thanks. 2 of the last 4 rounds we were .00x on the dial. Other 2 were within a .01
Another customer wrote this: “Don and crew at Crew Chief Pro. We are having a great weekend again at the final points race for the Midwest Jr Super Series this weekend. Bobby Kernwein was runner up yesterday in the 11.90 index race and we clinched the championship as well after our second round win. We are points leader in today’s age group race as well so hope we can bring home another win or runner up. Been a great season with your help. Thanks and will send a race recap on Monday to you. We could not have won the championship with out your help!

Crew Chief Pro Exclusive Features
Crew Chief Pro proprietary formulas
Crew Chief Pro Junior has been in the business of calculating drag racing predictions for 25 years. My kids raced Juniors for 12 years so I feel your pain. The result is we get to test many different formulas. The prediction formulas that prove to be most accurate are then added to the software. Some of our unique formulas are Horse Power Correction, Late Night with Temperature, Late Night with Humidity, and Adjusted Altitude with Barometric Pressure.
Create and customize your own prediction formulas and Crew Chief Pro Junior will run the calculations for you.
We display 3 different calculations and ONE can be your own formula. So if you want the ET to change .01 for 212 feet of Density Altitude and you want 19 points of Barometer and 13 points of Humidity to change the ET then you will have a formula the way you want. Crew Chief Pro Junior will then continue to adjust the ET Predictions while you are in the lanes just the way you would by hand.
Crew Chief Pro integrates with “Time Slip Simulator”
If you are not familiar with “Time Slip Simulator” it is website that gives you a visual look at your races. This company is out of Australia and they were able to create a valuable tool. I decided to partner with them so now “Time Slip Simulator” will now be an option in our new Crew Chief Pro 7.910 version. Check out their site at www.timeslipsim.com
How it works is simple, after entering your run, and your Opponent’s information you will just click on a button that says “Time Slip Simulator”. Their website will pop up with a visual outcome of the race. You can change camera angles, pause the run, and even put it into super slow motion to analyze the race. You will even be able to look at the race from your opponent’s view.
It is a wonderful Coaching Tool that every drag racer needs. I think Junior Dragster racers will really benefit, especially when they are just starting out. This is a fun tool, even for experience racers. I enjoyed reliving older races and seeing where I went wrong, and what I did right. If you are a new racer this tool will help you learn far quicker that you could just making laps alone.
The best part is you will be able to visually understand in two ways. First, after you enter a run you will see how the race looked at every interval. Second, using our “Finish Line Manager”, you will be able to see what the race should look like BEFORE you run. You will even be able to view what it looks like if your opponent is holding a few hundredths, or if you want to hold a few as well. It will be very easy to do “What If” scenarios. This will require a fee for the company that created “Time Slip Simulator” and you have to have an Internet connection.
Here are two short videos of how it works in Crew Chief Pro and Crew Chief Pro Junior.
First, ET Racing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tdp5K5fC8H8
Second, Throttle Stop Racing against a 218 mile per hour car: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PeMwJNI7Ifk
Powerful Search and Reporting Tools
Display or print information stored in the program in any order you wish. For example, you need to see all runs at HOUSTON where the corrected altitude is between 800-950 feet. No Problem. If you want to recall all runs with #205 jetting then a few quick keystrokes and the information appears on your screen or prints a report.
How Can Crew Chief Pro Be Accurate to .01 of a second?
Crew Chief Pro Junior analyzes 29 separate weather parameters and 132 unique weather parameter combinations. We then account for your car, racing class, fuel and weight. We know what weather factors will pick your car up .001 or slow your car down .001 seconds.
Crew Chief Pro Junior then analyzes performance to find which weather parameters will provide you with the most accurate prediction. This level of accuracy requires thousands of calculations. Crew Chief Pro Junior performs all of the required calculation in seconds.
Our customers report to us, and our own testing shows the result is an ET prediction that can be as accurate as .001 Sec.
ET Predictions Based on Ballast Weight- A Crew Chief Pro Junior exclusive feature
Crew Chief Pro Junior predictions are based on important factors such as weight, fuel, weather and other prediction parameters. You can tell us you want to run a 7.910 ET and we will tell you how many pounds to add or subtract in order to reach your ET. We will calculate the Ballast to ET Ratio for you, plus the ET Predictions.
ET Prediction and Ballast Weight Prediction Screen Shots are Below:

Improve your Top End Driving with 3 Amazing Tools! – “Opponent Analysis” – “Margin of Victory Analysis” and – “Finish Line Manager”
AFTER the Run Crew Chief Pro Junior will calculate how many feet and inches apart you and your opponent were at every interval including Reaction Time. Where “Finish Line Manager” tries to figure out what will happen before a race, “Opponent Analysis” will tell you what really happened after a run and is accurate to ¼ of one inch.
Our recommendation is to ask the driver how far apart they thought they were during the race. Then you can show them exactly how the race looked in ET and Feet and Inches. There is no emotion in physics, and the numbers don’t lie. This will benefit their top end driving for their entire racing career, ONLY Crew Chief Pro Junior has these features.
Complete Opponent tracking with the date you raced them, opponent number, name, comments, stage style, and ET info. Know exactly how far apart you were all of the way down the track. Know what the margin of victory was in feet and inches. If your opponent broke out, you will know how much to the ¼ or an inch. Crew Chief Pro Junior reports EXACTLY where on the track that you passed the opponent, and we can even tell if either of you hit the brakes.
“Finish Line Manager” A coaching tool that any racer can learn from.
Crew Chief Pro Junior’s “Finish Line Manager” will tell you how many Feet and Inches apart your car should be from your opponent at every interval on the track before the race! Imagine being able to tell your driver what the race will look like before it is even run! Sophisticated physics formulas make “Finish Line Manager” accurate to ¼ of one inch.
Lets use an example, Crew Chief Pro Junior may calculate that your car should be 16 feet behind the opponent at the 330 foot cone and 3 foot 5 inches at the MPH cone. You can instruct your driver that if they are farther behind they need to drop, and if they are closer to wheel race. No more guessing.
YOU KNOW WHAT THE RUN WILL LOOK LIKE ON THE TRACK BEFORE YOU RUN. You will know where your car position must be at the top end to win the race. Imagine the confidence you will have knowing more than your opponent.
Crew Chief Pro Junior calculates a “Run Completion” with momentum analysis to report what the ET and MPH would have been if you didn’t let off the gas or get on the brakes. The electronic log book will tell you where deceleration started. “Run Completion” will allow you to choose between 2 different formulas. The choices are “Off the 330 foot ET” or “Off 330 Foot with Momentum Analysis”.
Integrates with Almost Every Weather Station
Crew Chief Pro Junior with the Pager Enabled option, will link directly with many different weather stations. This allows you to get predictions and change in weather conditions every 2 minutes in the lanes on your pager. No more running back and forth to the trailer to check weather and recalculate the predictions. Available with Altalab Altacom II, Computech Race Air paging weather station and Altronics Performaire Weather Center, Performaire PC Paging, Davis Vantage Pro 2, Xlite Transmitters, ULTIMETER 2100, and Porta Tree. (Information located in weather station tab)
Crew Chief Pro Junior Pager Enabled option allows you to link directly to any performance paging weather station. Crew Chief Pro Junior will take a reading every 15 seconds automatically and store it every minute. We update all the predictions and weather every 15 seconds. You will receive real time weather and your ET Predictions on your existing pager or get the optional Text Message to your cell phone every two minutes.
For example: In 30 minutes the temperature can increase 5 degrees. This can account for .022 ET. When this is combined with a change in water grains, humidity, and Density Altitude this can add up to be a .027 change in your ET or Throttle Stop prediction. You will be paged or texted your new ET Prediction that is adjusted for the weather changes.
The LITE version of Crew Chief Pro is designed for NON Paging weather stations such as Computech Race Air Remote weather station, Altronics Performaire Weather Center, Performaire PC, Davis Vantage Pro 2, Ultimeter 2100, and Porta Tree.
Texting Messaging Option
Texting to your Cell Phone version also available. Text your prediction and weather to your Cell phone every 2 minutes. Requires internet connection on the computer and cell phone.
Electronic Log Book
Crew Chief Pro Junior Log book contains the run information, the weather during the run and split time intervals for 60Ft-330Ft, 330Ft-1/8th Mile, 1/8th – 1000 foot, 1000 foot to Quarter Mile, 60Ft -1/4th, and 330 foot to ¼ mile. These give you an excellent tuning tool and comparison to other runs. This log book prints out and slips into a 3 ring binder perfectly. It is color coordinated so your eyes key in on certain areas quickly.
Electronic Log Book
Crew Chief Pro Junior can store virtually an unlimited number of databases. The benefit of different databases is to store runs together where the weather changed the ET and not some track anomaly. For example, we have quite a few 1/8th mile tracks near us, each one has a mind of its own. At one track our ET may be a 7.910. Next week at a different track with similar altitudes we may run a 7.820. When this happens we create a database for the different tracks so the quick runs won’t confuse the program. So when we are at the track with the quicker ETs Crew Chief can predict just fine and not be confused. When we go to the slower ET track it won’t see the quick ETs and predicts just fine.
Databases are also useful if a racer has several different tune-ups for different track conditions or different parts. We used to have a database which we called “Midstate Dragway Shockwave clutch” and one called “Midstate Dragway Modified Polar clutch”. These were 2 different databases used at the same track yet had different components installed on the race car. You can Name your databases for easy reference to your tune up or track.
Each Database has its own set of Prediction Factors, ET formulas, and default information!
Separate Databases prevent runs in one database from contaminating runs from another database, especially important when the ET is different from track to track.
Prints NHRA, IHRA, and YOUR Track’s Tech Cards
Now you no longer have to fill out your tech card at every race. Crew Chief Pro will print and fill in all necessary information on your tech card for you. It will fill in all the serial numbers and certification numbers for you. You can store an unlimited number of vehicles along with their associated information. Just enter your NHRA or IHRA number and click print.
Nine Separate prediction formulas for your sixty foot
You can now estimate your sixty time based on the following conditions
- Weather adjusted
- Your estimated 60 Ft time:
- Track temperature
- Vapor Pressure
- Horse Power correction
- DA Baro and Humidity Adjusted
- Your average 60 ft. in the database
“Search Runs” and a “See Similar Runs”
Crew Chief Pro Junior provides you an option to search runs that are similar to your current run. You can click one button to see for yourself what your vehicle has done under similar conditions in a few Milliseconds. Before Crew Chief Pro you might have spent 30 minutes looking through a logbook for similar runs. Crew Chief Pro Junior then shows you a “Search Screen” which shows all the runs where the DA was within 400 feet of the current conditions. This data is listed in a Spread Sheet fashion and this allows you to spot TRENDS in performance. We know you need important, real world data for proper E.T. Predictions. What good is a prediction without some “muscle” to back it up? Now when they call you up YOUR READY! You have studied the information You know how your car will perform which will improve your top end driving skills. This is the Crew Chief Pro Junior Edge.
Complete Graphing Program (available with weather stations that download into your computer)
Crew Chief Pro Junior LITE and Pager Enabled versions comes with a full featured Graphing Program to graphically display, ET, Throttle Stop vs. Weather Data, ET vs. Weather Data, and much more. It is very easy to use, and most importantly it is POWERFUL!!
When used with a weather station that auto downloads into a computer, Crew Chief Pro Junior also graphs all weather parameters by the minute. You can watch weather trends on the weather graphs and know the direction and know how the conditions are trending. You can see the exact time the wind gusts, the direction and the speed of the gust. You can change dates, print complete weather reports, and see graphs full screen.
