The National Hot Rod Association had announced the formation of the NHRA State Championships, a special-event program for its member tracks and E.T. bracket racers which began in the 2010 season. 

Only tracks supporting the NHRA Summit Racing Series program are eligible to stage this event. This program will recognize and award grassroots racers with a unique, specially designed NHRA State Championships Wally plaque.

Much like state high school athletic associations that conduct state championships in school sporting events, NHRA will designate and recognize one annual event per state that boasts NHRA member tracks as the official NHRA Drag Racing State Championships.
