    In the last three years, I've witnessed some of the most exciting drag racing in nearly a decade of covering the sport for Car Craft, and I've been to everything from NHRA to NMRA. The most exciting races have a total of zero acronyms in front of them. Instead, they have names like Lights Out, No Mercy, Prize Fight, and Shakedown. Consisting of just a few classes, relatively simple rules, and big cash payouts, racers flock to the events. Spectators pack the stands and the vibe is electric.

    Generally speaking, you'd call this stuff small-tire racing and entire weekend events are based on the theme of cars racing with either a 275 or 315 radial tire—witness the Lights Out and No Mercy races that bookend the racing season at South Georgia Motorsports Park in Valdosta, Georgia. Those races are put on by Donald "Duck" Long, the larger-than-life personality behind Duck X Productions. Duck knows how to put on a show, and on those two weekends, SGMP is known as The Home of the Flying Cars. He was the first race promoter to devote an entire racing event to radial-tire cars, and the notion has taken off in the years since, spawning similarly themed races across the country. READ MORE
