Drag Racing is a outstanding Windows Phone 8 game where you can race over fifty different cars down a 1/4 or 1/2 mile strip. You can race against the computer or other Drag Racing players (randomly chosen) in various racing modes.
The game was update the other day to version 188.8.131.52 and adds a Friends option to the race menu where you can go head to head against specific members.
You just add a friend's screen name in the Friends Racing screen to get things started. Their best racing times will be displayed by level and track distance. Tap the banner of the friend you want to race, then the race button, select the level of cars you want to race and you're off to the track.
There's no chat options or notifications of race challenges should you be away from the game but it's a start.
We only ran into one downside in trying this new feature out. We couldn't get the head to head racing feature to work. For whatever reason, Sam and I couldn't get past the "select the level" screen and get to the actual racing screens. Hopefully it's a minor bug that can be easily fixed and if you've had any luck racing a friend, let us know in the comments.
If you haven't tried Drag Racing, it's an addictive, entertaining Windows Phone 8 game. It's well suited for both short gaming sessions or longer marathon gaming sessions. Drag Racing is a free, ad-supported game that you can find here in the Windows Phone Store.
