In addition to becoming part of an exciting community of racers and race fans, NHRA members are entitled to many valuable benefits, explained each week in Membership Midway. Members should refer to this page often for news and updates that will help them receive the greatest possible value from their membership throughout the year. In most cases, members must present their valid NHRA membership card to receive benefits. To join, see the ad on page 62.
If you haven't logged in to NHRA.com, you don't know what you are missing. NHRA.com's special section for members provides additional member benefits at no additional cost. Here's what you'll get just by signing in with your membership number and password:
