there is this dragstrip that im thinking of going to. so i have a couple of questions. warning some of them may seem stupid but its my first time and im too lazy to research it thoroughly.
- do they let automatics race?
- can i race with all the aftermarket stuff on my car ex: exhaust, cai?
- do i need to wear a helmet?
- do i have to have a roll cage in my car?
thats it for now. thanks for any help.

yes, they'll let you race. I think (at my track) its 13.99 or quicker requires a helmet, and 11.99 or quicker requires a roll cage. you wont need a helmet or a roll cage until you have some serious performance work done.

Yes, go to Capitol. Maryland International Raceway is nice too but it is a little more expensive.
Old Dominion is only 1/8 mile track. Good for working on launches but you can't really compare results with others b/c most people go to 1/4 mile tracks.

I think no too all of the above, u sound like u don`t need a roll cage, but check the NHRA, or IHRA rule book or where ever u r, being as effortless as u r u better check the rule books or u will be rejected from running
