[Lorelai notices Kirk running right on their heels]

LORELAI: Kirk, what are you doing?

KIRK: I’m drafting you.

Kirk refers to drafting livestock, a means of separating farm animals into different enclosures by encouraging them through different gates. It is used to separate cows from their calves, and Kirk may be trying to push Lorelai and Rory in different directions so that they are no longer in contact, and can be disqualified.

One thought on “Drafting

  1. I believe the term “drafting” here is referring to a term in competitive running where one runner runs right behind another so that the runner in front is pushing wind resistance out of the way, making the running easier for the person behind, thus giving that person a rest temporarily.
