Today we're glad to present our newest educational media campaign... Drag Racing Underground officially announces that APRIL IS AERODYNAMICS APPRECIATION MONTH... That's right, we're promoting this campaign to encourage today's youth to appreciate the science of aerodynamics and how same science applies to the sport of drag racing... Aerodynamics is the study of the motion of air around a solid object, particularly its interaction with same solid object (such as a race car when storming down the drag strip). Aerodynamics is also the study concerning the forces of drag and lift in conjunction with performance. We hope that youngins will find the study and applications of aerodynamics to be interesting and enlightening, and that it will also encourage them to seek lifetime careers related to the critical science. I am aware that there's a growing movement in America that says "Science is our Enemy" or something stupid and ridiculous like that, however, nothing could be further from the truth-- science is our friend and is needed to make our world a better place...  Below is a photo from a few seasons back at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park's NHRA Summernationals event. We see Chip King's turbocharged Hemi-powered '69 Dodge Daytona. There's no denying that aerodynamics play a major role in the performance of this streamlined Pro Modified hot rod...
