Drag Racing in Las Vegas
Amateur Drag Racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. While far from your average weekend-trip, events like this one attract big crowds of wealthy motorsports enthusiasts. They travel to Nevada in their mobile homes from all over the country to find out whose race car goes fastest on this quarter mile stretch of tarmac, just outside Las Vegas. Horsepowers in the thousands, with a mix of gasoline and burnt rubber as the fragrance of choice.
