From Top Alcohol Dragsters and Nostalgia Funny Cars to front-engine rails, transporting your car to the track can be as risky as running down the quarter mile - if you're not using the correct hardware. With that in mind, the vehicle transportation experts at Mac's Custom Tie-Downs have engineered the new Drag Pack. By combining the premium quality parts in a pre-engineered system, the Drag Pack includes everything you need to tie down race car in the trailer safely and securely, without the need for tie-down points or scuffed paint.

Using a single strap on an oversized soft tire like a drag slick can damage the tire in transit, leaving impressions in the rubber, and running the risk of the vehicle shifting. Instead, the Mac's Drag Pack Rear Tire Nets use a CNC-machined billet aluminum bar to spread the stress over the whole tire. The Drag Pack includes two Rear Dragster Nets, two Front Dragster Nets, four Anchor Plate Assemblies, four Recessed D-Rings, four Backing Plates and a Mac's padded black bag to store it all in style. Simply install the D-Rings on the floor of the trailer, roll the car into the trailer, place the nets over the tires and tie everything down. The spreader bar protects your tires and Mac's tie-down straps feature the same heavy duty construction and double stitching used to tie-down off-road trucks and military hardware. Overall it's the fastest, easiest and most secure way to transport a dragster down the open road - and like all Mac's products, the Drag Pack is made in the USA.
