Drag is a game mode featured in a number of Need for Speed titles.
Drags races see players having to manually change gear as they race against others to the finish line along a straight circuit. Players will lose the event if they total their vehicle in a number of differing manners.
The player will start in a signal lane of a road but they can change lane by tapping the steering in their desired direction. Players are encouraged to draft opponents in order to earn a short boost in acceleration.
The winner is the player that crosses the finish line first without totalled.
A 1/4 Mile (Quarter Mile) is a short drag race along a 1/4 mile straight.
A 1/2 Mile is a special form of drag racing. 1/2 mile races are twice as long as 1/4 mile events. These are only present in Need for Speed: ProStreet.
