Why is it that the biggest, gnarliest, fieriest turbos in drag racing seem to be in the UAE?

Gulf Coast sand drags, as I've said before, are pretty much the coolest motorsport that the world at large has never heard of. Supremely fast, totally unhinged, and ripe for cross-cultural pollination.

The drag racing proper starts at about 3:30 into the video. I would take the time to gawk at those turbos if I were you, though.
