unburnt fuel=black smoke=not full potential power

I read this everywhere but I was at truck pulls last weekend and something crossed my mind. Why do pulling trucks throw TONS of smoke all the way down the track? Are they not tuned properly or do they feed extra fuel because of the weight they have to pull? I have always wondered this and was just curious so thought I would ask

They throw more fuel at the engine then the engine can use so that it never starves.

I'm sure with consideration to the EGTs though...but, yeah I'd imagine they error on the "plus" side if you will.
