It may have begun in southern California. The drag racing car can not be attributed to one individual. "Big Daddy" Don Garlits is considered the "father of modern racing."

This is only an educated guess, but back in the early part of the 20th century, the main street in any given town was referred to as "the main drag". Since organized drag racing grew from street racing, if you challenged someone to race from one intersection to the next, you are racing on the "main drag", thus "Drag Racing". Now why the street in town was called the "main drag", well, that is another question to be answered elsewhere. Old Skool Racer

Drag racing cars were not invented. They developed. People were "DRAG" racing cars before the word "DRAGRACE" was invented. Acceleration racing of cars was done in the early 1900's and became a sport much later.

Drag racing is all over Australia. If you begin to race, then this will become your 'home track'. Have a look on the ANDRA (Australian National Drag Racing Association Inc.) website (see the related link below) then scroll way down to the bottom and under competitors and click on the tracks link and then click on what ever the part of Australia is relevant to you, if you don't have anyone to ask. I hope that you become more interested in drag racing and participate with the great Australian sportsmanship that we are renowned for!

Drag racing (1954) is from slang sense of "wagon, buggy" (1755), because a horse would drag it. By 1851 this was transferred to "street," as in the phrase main drag, and it was adopted by hot rodders for "race on city streets." Dragster is also from 1954. edit: drag racing does not imply it is on city streets, it can be closed course and normally is
