That's what I'm guessin too cuz I've noticed a lot.of.racers usually charge there cuz I guess you use a lot of ju cuz I guess you use a lot of juice out of the battery but its not on long enough to let the alternator recycle the battery or recharge it to charge the batter to charge the battery up so maybe I just need to leav so maybe I just need to leave it on that more consistently

A lot of racers use chargers in between rounds, because they're not running an alternator at all (we are an official NHRA contingency sponsor for both batteries and chargers) and some run their fans and other accessories while in the pits to help cool down their car. Keeping a battery fully-charged with a battery charger and keeping an eye on your voltage levels will help extend battery life, regardless of brand.
