Here at BTE Racing, we’re familiar with drag racers and what makes them tick. There are tons of reasons that drag racers race, including a love of cars, family tradition, a need for speed, making memories with friends, and more. We decided to highlight some of what racers love about drag racing—because drag racing is so much more than just fast cars.
No Two Cars Are Exactly Alike
Each car you see at the dragstrip is custom-built, the product of blood, sweat, tears and motor oil. The winning car is determined by what’s under the hood, not how it looks or whether it is a traditional hot rod or race car. Drag racing welcomes all makes and models in various divisions and classes—event Smart Cars, vans and trucks! At the end of the day, it’s not about the type of car, it’s about the engine and parts powering it.
Win or Lose, We’re Family
No other community compares to the drag racing community, and you can take that to the bank. We are more than racers and fans—we’re family. It doesn’t matter who you are, drag racers have each other’s back from sharing racing advice to grabbing a beer together after the race. You might line up to race against friends at the strip, but the competition just creates a stronger bond and mutual respect.
Trust me, I’m a Technician
Most of the drag racing community has dabbled in building an engine or modifying their car, but having a reliable technician to fine-tune a car’s performance can make the difference between a winning season and a losing season. The process of building a quality drag racing car takes a lot of time, money, patience and skill, which makes experienced technicians a hot commodity. (Thankfully, you have access to the expertise of our dedicated staff at BTE!) A good technician is a friend indeed.
Memories That Last A Lifetime
Remember your first race? Or that time your car broke down on the way to the track? Or the time you got your personal best E.T.? Drag racing is more than just a hobby. For many racers, it becomes the backdrop of special moments shared with friends and family. Even after they retire, drag racers love to share stories of their record-breaking runs, favorite cars, and fond memories of seeing their heroes race in person.
