Default DRAG radial tires

Hi everyone,

I know what a radial tire is, but could someone be nice enough to tell me what a "drag radial tire" is? I'm browsing the internet without finding any clear explanation (just links to commercial websites). Is that a brand? A type of radial tyre? Anything to do with dragster?
I'm French and I think it's not helping me in my "internet surfing".

Thanks a lot.

They are used for drag racing, most are smooth with no treads. Although there are street legal DOT drag tires that have one or two treads going around so they can be driven on the street...supposedly, I wouldn't but you could.
