What does it take to push a car a quarter-mile at 300 miles per hour? What happens in an engine during a race? More importantly, what happens to the driver?
Drivers and crewmembers explain the mechanics of the drag racing engine. From pistons to tires to fuel, learn what goes into a motor to push it to the limit and what happens to metal and rubber at incredible speeds. Explore the physics of racing, how it affects the human body and the amazing results received from a finely tuned engine.
Also, at the first event since the tragic death of driver Eric Medlin, fellow racers face the challenge of getting back behind the wheel. As they remember their friend, they must overcome their own fear to once again, race for the title.
