I'm hoping this ends VERY soon like everyone else.I hope some degree of normalcy returns soon.

I am not trying to be negative,but I am going to start preserving all of my National Dragsters that will probably sell for a good buck on Ebay in about 20 years.

Honestly,will they survive? Will their business model weather the storm?

My gut says this will make them make Nationals for Pros only.
Divisionals will be for sportsmen.

How many Pro cars will be left?
Will people go to watch 4 Top Fuel cars battling it out?

The sportsman are the fill at Nationals. We pay NHRA to race the National events . If it wasn't for us NHRA would have to pay for Jet Cars, Wheel Standers, Motorcycles doing tricks. Etc.. Pro only National's won't happen.


When everything is coming your way, your probably in the wrong lane.

Maybe fifteen bucks a copy by then. Not worth preserving.....

There seems to be a way for NHRA to get involved with their business model at

https://www.iracing.com/

A good way to get revenue to ride out this storm. Nascar is well positioned on it.

Unfortunately,this is the same organization that puts out NHRA.TV that rarely works properly.


VIRTUAL racing may be the future!
