Drag City (1254 words)
The premise of drag racing is very simple; it is a straight-line acceleration contest between two vehicles over a measured distance of a quarter mile.
Drag City solves all these problems by being a permanent facility that has a professionally prepared surface to race on and bright lights for night racing.
Unlike most drag strip facilities that built spectator stands that are parallel with the track at 0 degrees, Mopar Drag City's spectators stands will be offset 3 degrees to allow for the fans to have a better view of the whole race from start to the finish.
