Central Australian Drag Racing Association
Desert Nationals
ASID Bracket racing is ANDRA Group III, Dial-Your-Own (DYO) Division with a Full Tree Start. Racers individually nominate their Elapsed Times “ET". The “Christmas Tree" starts the slower vehicle first (aka “handicap"), using the difference between the two nominated times. Both racers theoretically cross the finish line at the same time, if each has a perfect run. See “Drag Racing Facts" for more information.

Race cars and bikes are organized into “Brackets" according to the Australian National Drag Racing Association “ANDRA" Rulebook. Brackets group-race vehicles together by their ET and modification level. Drag vehicles seen at ASID range from completely stock, unmodified cars up to 100% purpose built race cars.
