I can't figure this problem out. There doesn't seem to be enough information, but its in my school physics book so if someone could help id really apreciate it.
"Drag car tires in contact with an asphalt surface probaby have the highest coefficients of static friction in the everyday world. Assuming a constant acceleration and no slipping of tires, estimate the coefficient of static friction for a drag racer that covers the quarter mile in 6 s.

Assume constant acceleration and, from that, determine the maximum force that can be applied by the tires without slipping. This will give you the coefficient of friction.
