If you want to see some more cool applications of drag, look up the articles in the MIT Technology Review about fuel efficient cars, fruit flies, and wind turbines.
To learn more about how drag works, try enrolling in 8.MReVx or 8.MechCx on edX.org. These courses are taught at the AP Physics C level, and give an introduction to classical mechanics for students with a calculus background. More advanced students can take a look at 2.03x (Engineering Dynamics) or 16.101x (Intro to Aerodynamics) and learn about why understanding drag is so important for engineers.
