Illegal street racing with your car had found its way to sanctioned tracks trough the history in the early 1949.

In this video you can see the history of street legal drag racing and all the information on the Fastest Street Car Shootout in the 1990s, the Pump Gas Drags in the 2000s, and of course today’s challenges facing Hot Rod Drag Week.
Finally, some more drag racing history here!
