I've asked hundreds of people this and no one seems to know lmao, just curious.. this should get good :smt070fire away
The name Drag Racing comes from the original racers held their competions on the town's main Drag.
Back in the 1950s everyone called the main road in a town the main drag (no idea why) so thats where the name drag racing came from as you did not need a road course just a small straight section of two lane road or a "main drag" as it was called back in the day.Only the dumb asses raced on the main street of town. Reminds me of street racers today. :supz: Wouldn't you rather pay money to race - know the person beside you paid too. One person will win and you receive a time slip to prove it.
