What makes MSA Drags different from Street2Strip?

In short, no long queues between runs :)

MSA Drags offers competitions, also known as Bracket Racing (more info on this to follow) which counts towards championship points to determine the top 3 champions for the year. After each event there is also a prize giving where you could possibly take home trophies and/or prize monies (TBC). ALL drag racing runs will be published after each event. Nice for analyzing your runs, etc.
