For more information please reference the website!What is RSD?
Real Street Drags was started at the legendary Great Lakes Dragaway in 1999, as an event to get the Chicago & Milwaukee area street racers off the streets, and onto the track... the first of it's kind!
How does RSD cater to "street racing?"
RSD is just like street racing, with the safety of taking place at a drag strip!
We turn the scoreboards off and cut your timeslips in half, so NOBODY except you can see your ET!
Racers may start the race with a flag, a flashlight, a bikini babe dropping her arms, or however else the contestants wish to flag the start... just like on the streets. Giving the hit, giving car lengths... RSD does it! Combine this with the track's "win light" to eliminate any confusion as to who won, no traffic or cops to get in the way, and the fan base that RSD draws from Chi-town, Milwaukee, and everywhere else nearby... and RSD simply wins.
