Drag racing is a competition in which specially prepared automobiles or motorcycles compete, usually two at a time, to be first to cross a set finish line. The race follows a straight course over a measured distance, most commonly 1/4 mile.

The Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing chronicles the history of the sport of drag racing. Some 90 racing cars can be seen in the Drag Race building, while a further 50 vehicles are in the Antique Car building.

Bruce Larson is a retired American drag racer from Pennsylvania. He is remembered for his red, white, and blue USA-1 Chevrolet Camaros.
