The Psychology of Drag Racing

I Can Explain Why You're
Not Winning More...

I'm amazed how Drag Racers are perfectly willing to spend enormous amounts of money to find that extra bit of horsepower, but will not spend a penny on improving something far more important--their brain-power. Racers will spend an enormous amount of time working on their race cars, but they are much less likely to take time working on themselves. With competition being so fierce and close in todays' races, each racer has to take time to look for ways to find a unique mental edge.

What makes the difference between a good racer and a great racer? It's not the car, it's not luck, it is--the mental advantage! Sports psychologists believe that psychological factors are more important than physical factors when it comes to determining the primary difference between winners and losers. If you talk with any top athlete from golfers, to basketball players, to racers; 99% of them will say that mental strength, determination, concentration, and psychological influences are the most important factors in their success. This mental advantage is what takes them from good to great and from failure to success.

I hope you will consider investing in the most important part of your team -- the driver. The following is a description of my book "Psyched Out!", which also includes audio and video material.

Good luck this season.
Thanks, Tami Eggleston Ph. D.
