Is Reverse Drag Racing Genius or Insanity?

We have seen a lot of crazy trends come and go. Even in the niche world of drag racing, so many different ideas have been brought to the plate. After all, every once in a while, promoters need to keep it fresh. This will hopefully keep attention on the strip. Sometimes, this means going to the far end of the spectrum to find something a little crazy to test out. Some of these ideas might be a little bit controversial. Others actually end up catching on and paying off big-time. We’re not quite sure where to file this one! We had a heck of a time watching it, though!
This time, we Dial in at Bandimere Speedway. On the track that night, apparently, somebody had the idea to send the cars down backward. This meant lining them up at the starting line as normal. Except, instead of staging with their front tires heading down the strip, their back tires would be ready to go to battle first. It sounds like a fairly straightforward race. However, it gets a little bit complicated when considering how a vehicle in reverse is controlled. Things get a little bit slippery when the steering is coming behind the vehicle as it makes its way down the surface.
By following along below, we get to tune into a variety of different matchups that are carried out in this manner. I’m not sure how many people can say that they would try this out. Major props to those were brave enough to give it a shot themselves. There were honestly some pretty good matchups here given that all of the cars were fed the handicap of going in reverse. After watching this one for yourself, be sure to tell us if you would be willing to head down the track like this.
