There are 4 types of drag race, each will allow you to use different cars. To improve your chances at winning, you can upgrade your favorite car's horse power (and thus speed) by building many of it.
The best way to accelerate is to wait with shifting up as late as possible - meaning when the arrow is "just" a few pixels in the red.
Another race mode is GrandPrix.
The available cars will vary per quest. If you're having trouble beating a quest with the best car in the list, upgrade it to the second stage kit by building 10 or more of that car to increase it's Horse Power.
The other three types are "vs friends". Horse Power is a big factor in these. Winning will give you your friend's wager.
