    first query, is the drag race in the day? If so, then you should be able to capture it with good shutter speeds if you have good lighting

    Welcome! For the lens available, might help to practice panning technique.

    How much depends on how close you can get to the action, the further you are, the less noticeable the blur would be.

    Hello...welcome.
    As mentioned by the bros earlier, it shouldn't be a problem if it's in the day, just bump your ISO if need be.
