Thats what makes drag racing so much fun. It is usually 8 or 10 bucks to get in the gate for the day, and it is like 15 to 30 dollars to run your car. It depends on the track and the event. When you go you can watch and say, " hey that looks like fun and give it a try. At the level we are all running ( just for fun and bragging rights) no one will pick on you or make fun, actually people try to help out, and with the slower cars all you need is a seatbelt!
I have been roadrtacing for about 16 years on and off and know that sport quite well, but had never dragged till two years ago ( my first light was over 1 sec.
), I had a friend come up to me and tell me how to do it a little better and the quest was on. You will get to see some fast cars and have some fun, come on out I'll buy you a drink!!
