Best Answer

It started in California on the beach. they moved to asphalt so they could go faster and get more traction. It started in about the late 20s or early 30s. The Sounthern California Timing Assoc started in 1947 and then the NHRA was founded in 1951. The first official drag race event was in 1953. It may have begun in southern California. The drag racing car can not be attributed to one individual. "Big Daddy" Don Garlits is considered the "father of modern racing."
