HOUSE SPRINGS, Mo. — The distinctive sights, smells and sounds of exciting drag racing action take place this weekend at International Hot Rod Association tracks across North America.

Your senses come alive seeing the colorful paint schemes and the excitement of wheelies at the launch pad. There is alluring aroma of racing fuel, accompanied by the tire-squealing, motor-revving action at the starting line and cars powering down the drag strip.
