The staff of National Dragster welcomes you to NationalDragster.net, the website of the official publication of the NHRA.
This website is the digital companion to our award-winning print magazine and is maintained by the same trusted staff of professionals who have delivered your NHRA news for more than 50 years.
Through this site, you will enjoy a front-row seat to the latest NHRA news and results through both live and regularly updated postings, bonus content from the print issue, and original columns each weekday covering a wide variety of drag racing topics.
Our online Bits from the Pits column follows in the footsteps of its famed print sibling but with a wonderful new twist. Instead of having to wait a week or more for the news to arrive in your mailbox, you’ll now get it as soon as we do. The staff will update this column multiple times throughout the day, with everything from a quick heads-up about a potential breaking story to a hot new story lead to full-blown analysis and mini features.
Our event coverage, which kicks off each season in Pomona, will provide in-depth reporting on breaking news at the event as it happens. Our reporters will be in the pits, at trackside, and everywhere between to share the news and images through journal entries or the accompanying Twitter feed.
This site also will house an easy link to the current digital version of the publication, allowing you to switch back and forth as you peruse the additional content.
We also provide you with original staff-written columns each weekday. Mondays will feature our fan poll, Poll Position. Each Tuesday, Brad Littlefield analyzes the weekend’s results in the reprise of his popular Tuesday Morning Crew Chief column. Wednesday’s column, The Sports Report, will be written by Kevin McKenna and will focus solely on the world of Sportsman racing. Each Thursday, we'll l track down an interesting subject from the sport’s history for #Throwback Thursday, and Friday will feature Photographic Memories, a look at some of the amazing photos in the National Dragster archives.
Finally, we’ve opened the vault to our extensive stats collection, stocking the National Dragster Resource Library with the types of historical and statistical information that helps us do our jobs. From a complete list of national event winners dating back to the 1955 Nationals to a look at the quickest performance in class history, there’s a lot to enjoy and learn.
