What to expect

When you get to an NHRA Member Track for an NHRA Drag event, you’ll pay your entry fee and get a tech card. Fill out your information on the tech card and proceed to the tech area to submit your car for safety inspection. The tech staff and track officials will inspect your car to make sure you meet the racing safety requirements. Some of the safety requirements include:

  • Seat Belts
  • Working headlights and taillights
  • Safe, DOT-Approved tires or approved racing tires
  • Secured Battery
  • Must be wearing long pants (no nylon), sleeved shirt, closed-toe shoes and socks when making your run.
  • Helmets and additional safety equipment may be required.
  • Contact your local track for specifics; they are more than willing to help you determine if your vehicle meets the requirements.

What do I need to participate?*

Check with your local NHRA member track for its requirements, but generally, you can expect to be expected to provide proof of the following:

  • A valid driver’s license
  • DOT-approved street legal tires or drag slicks
  • Seat belts
  • If using nitrous, nitrous-oxide bottles must be stamped as meeting DOT 1,800-pound standards *Requirements may vary

What to expect at the track Step-by-Step

Entry & registration: When you enter the track, you’ll receive a tech card after paying your entry/participation fee. You’ll then sign a release form.

Tech: After completing your tech card, you’ll drive your vehicle to tech, show your drivers license and a simple safety inspection will be performed on your car.

Staging lanes: Once you’re registered, drive to the rear of the staging lanes and get ready to race. See tips on Staging your vehicle.

Race: When it’s time for you to race, an official will motion to you. Do a burnout if you’d like, or drive around the water box and get ready to stage. When both cars are ready, you’ll stage using the Christmas Tree. At the end of your run, slow down and exit properly.

Timing booth: After your run, you’ll pick up your time slip at the timing booth to see how your vehicle performed. Then return to the pits to get ready for more runs.
