According to the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA), “a drag race is an acceleration contest from a standing start between two vehicles over a measured distance. A drag racing event is a series of such two-vehicle, tournamentstyle eliminations. The losing racer in each contest is eliminated, and the winning racers continue until one remains.” For a full schedule of Eddyville Raceway Park events visit www. eddyvilleracewaypark.com.
