Drag Racing is an acceleration contest between two vehicles racing from a standing start over a straight quarter- or eighth-mile strip. A series of individual two-vehicle races called eliminations make up a drag racing event, with competing vehicles divided into a variety of classes. Class eligibility is determined by several factors, including engine size, vehicle weight, allowable modifications, and aerodynamics. Most street vehicles must meet basic safety criteria, while faster, high-performance racecars must meet more stringent requirements as outlined throughout the NHRA Rulebook.
