Tips for beginner drag racers from driver Molly Straight:
1. Keep your head in the game. Don’t let the intimidation of the other drivers get to you. Drag racing has a lot to do with your attitude and mentality.
2. You have to learn to lose to win, especially in bracket racing.
3. When talking about a future event, never say “if I win.” Instead say, “when I win.” It keeps the mental confidence going.
