What I have seen is slightly different.

When waiting in line getting into the drag strip (i.e. before gates open) there are so many 10 second cars its shocking. The gates must be magical. Simply passing through them makes cars somewhere between 5 and 7 slower. I am not sure what causes, this, but my intuition is that the gates must have some sort of EMI that affects the tuning on the cars and damages the gasoline. Otherwise, I just can't figure out how a 10 second car only runs a 17 a few hundred feet later?
