Everyone knows the PAM Drag Race is one of the biggest events of the year, and it’s no question why! Here are some of the things that make drag racing awesome.


1. Nitromethane is used instead of gasoline in the cars, and it can cost up to $16 per gallon! Talk about pump anxiety!


2. NHRA cars can produce up to 7,000 horsepower. That’s equivalent to the power of roughly 7,000 horses!


3. Drag cars can go from 0-100 mph in less than .8 seconds, almost twice as long as your last relationship!


4. No one actually knows how the ancient humans first built drag cars, all designs are based off of scrolls found in caves by the Dead Sea.


5. Despite what the media might tell you, drag car racing is actually super hard if you don’t go to college for it.


6. There are 14 different types of drag cars, but only 6 are commercially viable due to “radiation laws.”


7. I actually raced a drag car once but it broke.


8. Drag cars are ranked as “14th coolest thing in the world,” right behind bagels with those little cinnamon swirls in them.
