silly thought/question: would removing headlight for drag strip help?

Like a lot of us, we enjoy the occasional drag strip excursion. I've seen several cars, including a few BMWs with one head light removed, or fog light, for cooling and/or cold air benefits? Think that removing front drivers light would help with DCI?

i've looked around and not seen anything on this - so pardon if it's a repost.

In order to remove the headlights in an E90, you have to remove the front bumper, so I don't think it would be worth the trouble. I know some people redirect the airflow that cools the brakes to their intake.
