Alot of my friends will say racing a stock car at drag strips will screw up your engine big time? Is this true?

No more than racing on the streets. What was his reasoning behind it and did he give specifics as to what would tear up?

I'm new to BMW's, but I've raced my Mustang at various drag strips over the past 8 years and have yet to tear anything up. Don't get me wrong though. I have seen a lot of people tear stuff up, but it's all same stuff that would've broke on the street.

The biggest things to cause problems while drag racing is when people power shift or mount slicks on their vehicle.

Shifting through gears without lifting your foot off the accelerator.
