I only street drag race, never been to an official track.
I just strive to be the first to the posted speed limit, then I (usually) lay off the throttle.
I give the rice burners a little surprise.
I'm only mildly tuned with an SCT X3 and a full Sun Coast Transmission package that my local Ford dealership rebuilt my tranny with, plus I have a F450/550 transmission cooler in lieu of stock and a Mag-Hytec deep tranny pan
Once I can afford to stud my engine, then I'll re-tune.
Technically I am, I race my 89 Mustang. It's nothing special, more or less stock motor with bolt ons, been mid 12s. Its two tone black and gold, so it stands out from the crowd, some here might have seen it!!!
