About Us and FRIDAY STREET DRAGS
This site has been moved to
Friday racing is a result of the
popularity of "street racing," faster cars and "quicker" cars which have been an
outgrowth of a growing imports class with a higher horsepower to weight ratio -
and some innovative aftermarket street legal technology. This trend has
been years in the making - both on the street and at the strip - and now we
bring it to you in the form of REAL STREET DRAGS and this web site
That's right - we have
seen a "stock" street legal CRX "dust" a stock Corvette.
Check out the new Subaru All Wheel Drives! A new Mercedes
"hammer" a new Trans Am. It is not a pretty sight. Note: even though
the Corvette should have been quicker - the CRX driver was smart enough to make
sure his tires didn't spin and all that torque went to getting him down the
track - he was (for an instant) the better driver . . . and he proved it!
