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 8.
News for collectors
Membership Services often hears from racers and fans who are collectors of drag racing memorabilia, especially those looking for rare copies of National DRAGSTER dating back through the decades. Due to limited warehouse space, NHRA doesn't keep copies of issues on hand much older than the prior year, but more recent back issues are available for purchase at the cover price plus shipping. To order recent back issues, call toll-free 800-308-NHRA.
For vintage items, check National DRAGSTER's Dragmart Classified section under the Memorabilia heading. You may find just what you're looking for. Occasionally, NHRA offers recent-year hatpins and Member T-shirts to members through an ad in National DRAGSTER.
How to claim the 10 percent member discount on NHRA merchandise
NHRA Members are entitled to 10 percent off NHRA-branded merchandise from NitroMall at events, online, or by phone. To claim your discount at NitroMall.com, use the discount code you receive in your membership kit. (You'll find the code in your member-discount coupon booklet.) At events, show your current membership card at checkout, or be ready to provide your membership number when you call NitroMall toll-free at 800-PIK-NHRA.
The member discount does not apply to driver merchandise sold at NitroMall or other souvenir trailers or purchases of new or renewal memberships. Members who purchase a Rulebook at events will receive 10 percent off the $10 cover price; no additional discounts.
