Once considered the "bad boy" of motorsport, drag racing has evolved into one of the most technically sophisticated and exciting forms of automotive competition.

Because we can" is the reason we gave for doing World's Greatest Drag Race the first time, eight years ag. Which production car gets faster after the quarter? Which one runs out of breath? Once the 797-hp Hellcat Redeye hooks up, surely it shows its taillights to the field, right?

We love it, you love it, and apparently so do the fine airmen of the 30th Space Wing, headquartered at Vandenberg Air Force Base; this is the third year in a row they've agreed to host our madness. This explains how we ended up with our 12 Best Driver's Cars lined up and revving on the clean, grooved concrete of America's fourth-longest runway. Which production car gets faster after the quarter? Which one runs out of breath? Once the 797-hp Hellcat Redeye hooks up, surely it shows its taillights to the field, right?

In Drag Racing Timothy Miller reviews the history of the sport and explains the differences between the specific car classes, such as top fuelers, funny cars, alcohol cars, pro modifieds and pro stock. Profiles of the sport's pioneers and today's best-known names are also included.

Consider these remarkable statistics from modern drag racing:

From a dead stop, a top fuel dragster is the fastest-accelerating vehicle in the world and, at full throttle, consumes the same amount of fuel as a fully loaded Boeing 747. During the launch of a fuel car, the driver sustains close to five Gs of gravitational pull -- more than a space-shuttle astronaut. Today's pro modifieds are capable of traveling a quarter mile in less than six seconds at speeds that exceed 240 miles per hour.
