They spray water (use to use bleach) in the burn-out pit to aid the tires to break loss in order to build heat. They spray (IDK what) traction chemical on the launch pad and down the track for .... you guessed it....TRACTION.

The traction compound is made by a company called VHT, they have been using the same **** for years. I used to carry a baby bottle of it when I street raced my bikes.

Make sure to keep us posted of the turn out and winnings.
Is this a bike only event or normal race event?
