Drag Race is the second ability exclusive to the Pylon Mech. When activated, the Pylon Mech quickly propels forward, leaving behind a fiery trail. It can launch plants forward similarly to the All-Star's Sprint Tackle, dealing 75 damage and knocking back plants it runs into. Although it has a fire trail, the fire does not damage any plants and is just an effect.
Its name is a reference to drag racing, which is a type of motor racing in which automobiles or motorcycles (usually specially prepared for the purpose) compete, usually two at a time, to be first to cross a set finish line.
- Use this like All-Star's Sprint Tackle. However, since it propels you really fast, use it to finish plants with low health. Do not use it on plants with high health remaining, as it may not take them down and just knock them away.
- When the player is vanquished, the "Vanquished By" section of the tombstone that follows and the vanquish feed mistakenly refers the ability vanquished by as All-Star's Sprint Tackle. This is probably left over from early development.
