tow

Here is my best explanation:

'drag' is the definition.
(towing is a kind of dragging)

'queen quits blackpool attraction' is the wordplay.
'queen' becomes 'er' (abbreviation for Elizabeth Regina).
'quits' indicates named letters should be taken away.
'blackpool attraction' becomes 'tower' (Blackpool Tower).
'tower' with 'er' taken away is 'TOW'.
