National DRAGSTER, the weekly publication of the National Hot Rod Association, presents its popular National DRAGSTER Challenge for E.T. bracket racers at NHRA member tracks. The winner of each event is rewarded with a special-edition pewter Wally trophy, the most coveted prize in drag racing and NDC hat.

Sun Sep 6,  2015

Only tracks supporting the NHRA Summit Racing Series program are eligible to stage this event. Winners compete head to head with dials to become the King of the Track Champion, who will receive a coveted NHRA Wally and King of the Track hat. 


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.

Individual winners receive a division champion's trophy and purse along with travel expenses to attend the NHRA Summit Racing Series National Championship in Pomona, held in conjunction with the NHRA Mello Yello season closer, where they will compete for a national championship, $5,000, a national champion's trophy, and bragging rights for the year.

Be A Winner, Be A Member rewards NHRA members who win a race at an NHRA member track with prizes from sponsors.
