The Main Drag

I have no idea why the main street of our towns are referred to as "drags". If it is a reference to street racing, I can't think of anything less conducive to racing than this, but there's a pretty clear view of the hills at the end of the street anyway.

We have a main drag too, only it's six lanes and I hate driving on it!

The term was first recorded in 1851 and has something to do with the "main stem".
