Default I love racing

Since I was a kid, I already love to watch this game/sport. But I never tried this... What is the first thing to do when I go to this drag racing? Can you help me guyz?

If you have never been to the track find a friend that has, watch them a few times so when you go down the first time you don't look like an idiot (some people may get a little mad at you too). Depending on what you have for places to go you may not have to... our area has "fast cops" wed. night street drags, where they will help you. The best way to learn is to ride, but try to find a track that allows that...
Make sure you will pass safety and depending on the track you may need a helmet (depending on speed of your car) and it may need to be rated ex. my track is NHRA so I need a snell helmet 05+
Last thing don't overtalk your car at the track, most people there know what it will/should run, and then you won't look like a douch.

P.S. almost anything on here has been answered by someone, look at the sticky for what to do at the track or something like that.. that will tell you exactly what you need to do

Stage. Push the Go pedal. Don't lift 'till the end.

LOL, Almost forgot the most important thing. Must do an "epic" burnout.

HA! Yeah, I'll send you what I've got.. I'm hoping that they're going to send me the true full-res version, but the one I've got is fairly large.
