New NHRA competition license procedures announced in November are being implemented effective January 1, 2016. New license application forms and procedures are available online at nhraracer.com.
All NHRA competition licenses will now incorporate NHRA membership benefits, including catastrophic medical insurance in effect at any NHRA member track or NHRA sanctioned event. Existing license and membership expirations will be merged into a single expiration for current licensed competitors as they are renewed.
Updates will include three new classifications: Professional, Pro/Sportsman and Sportsman. Certain levels of competitors in the new Pro/Sportsman and Sportsman categories can obtain a license without a medical exam and will have a lower fee. Licensed racers at this level also will enjoy a simplified online renewal process to be introduced in coming months.
Pro/Sportsman and Sportsman licenses will be processed through NHRA’s Division offices.
