Flat Drag Bracket Racing

Bracket Racing is a tried and true style of Drag Racing that has been a true test to a Drag Racer's skill and ability. Each race they must predict what time their car will run while making it run as close to that as possible without making any errors. When you add in another racer trying to do the exact same thing along side of you, that may be faster or slower than you, it creates a very competitive race to the finish. This type of racing is sure to get a Racer's adrenaline pumping as they try to maintain their composure all while racing their vehicle down the track as quickly as possible. Once you add in all the factors, each and every run of this type of racing turns in to an intense mental and physical competition to determine who's taking home the bragging rights of being the best of that race.
