Each "driver" releases his/her car independently and tries to release on the green light (avoiding a red light)
the solenoides should have been bigger (more pull) as these only pull 12 oz.
The "cams" that the solenoids are connected to have an adjustable stop so both solenoides are adjusted with plunger movement the same amount.
Alot of work but it has been fun.
Now on to the finish line tower etc.

I think I'll stick with my ideas of looking for off-the-shelf hardware for my gates.
I'm leaning heavily towards using pneumatic solenoids and rams to drop and raise the gates. I'd never have the patience to do all that wood working...
