All competitions taking place in the anime with the heroes competing for prize, honour or glory, including beyblading contests, have their roots in Tenkaichi Budokai - the tournament in the classic anime Dragon Ball, where all the best fighters in the world would gather to determine who is the best this year. If you especially liked this aspect of Beyblade and if you for some reason haven't seen Dragon Ball, it is my pleasure to recommend it. There will be no beyblades, but it makes characters only more versatile.
The tournament-related action as such starts in DB around episode 20, don't get impatient, enjoy the slow start where some of the key characters are introduced.

Airgear and Beyblade has similar plot. These series told us about a kind of popular, international (and supernatural) sport practising mainly by subcultures. There is an energetic hero who gather his team and they fought firstly against weak enemies (and always they have problems with them) and after against stronger and stronger guys to became champion (all enemies after beating became their friends). Both series are classic Shounen because of "from zero to hero" plot and rivalry aspect.
P.S. Sorry, about my English ;)

Never able to fully dedicate himself to anything, he lives a sloppy day-to-day existence, until his classmate Yukino introduces him to Dragon Drive -- a virtual reality game. While Reiji garners a passion for the game, it would seem that its founders have other things in mind than simple entertainment. During a special training, Reiji discovers that Dragon Drive is more than just a game, and now must fight for the survival of the dragons as well as all of mankind!
If you liked Beyblade, you'll also like Dragon Drive. Both series are very similar in that they're about teenage kids battling it out with toys that are more than meets the eyes. Also, they both have that "Saturday-Morning Cartoon" feel to it, in which the target audience is that of young males. The only difference is that in one, they use spinning battle tops, while in the other, the protagonist's are immersed into a virtual world where they fight along side their own unique dragons. Try it out for sure if you enjoyed Beyblade.
