Drag racing is where 2 cars or bikes race down a quarter mile and whoever crosses the line first wins the race. There are many categories in drag racing which include Top Fuel Dragster, Top Fuel Funny Car, Pro Modified and Pro Stock. There are many different categories below these but these are the most popular.and the crashes are awesome

Best Answer-Drag Racingis where 2 cars race down a measured strip of asphalt or concrete. NHRA is the National Hot Rod Association. In the NHRA pro level, whoever reaches the finish line first wins. IHRA is the International Hot Rod Association. In IHRA, you dial-in a certain time which your car will usually run. If you run faster than that, you do something called Breakout. How you start is you heat your tires by doing a burnout. then you pull up to something which is called a Christmas tree. It really isn't a Christmas tree, but it senses when you break two beams. Which is called staging.once you and the other driver stage. The Christmas Treecounts down, as it does 3 lights come on in a certain order. Then it senses when you take off. two lights represent this. One is green. One is Red. Green=good start. Red=too early. If you are Red its called a Redlight
