Drag Racing v Auto Cross (or any other type of racing)

I was reading about this show on A&E called "Driving Force", it features a father and his 3 daughters who are professional drag racers. Once I stopped bieng destracted by extremely hot 17 year old Courtney Force
(who looks like she's 25), I realised, If a girl my age can be a pro drag racer, then I sure as hell can do it!

Aside from launching the car, is drag racing really that hard, compared to virtually any other form of road or offroad racing?

Very nice girl.. I think any racing is a team effort. Drag racing seems it would require less skill from the driver and money skill/investment from the team building and looking after the car.

Correct on both accounts. I've seen one episode of the show. Don't waste your time.
