Thursday, January 17, 2013


NHRA has announced that its 54-year-old print publication, National DRAGSTER, has changed frequency from weekly to biweekly and that it will be supplemented by a robust new companion website for NHRA Members only, NationalDRAGSTER.net

“We are excited to usher in a new era for National DRAGSTER,” said NHRA Vice President-Publications Adriane Ridder. “The new comprehensive format and delivery method is designed to bring all the news our fans want and the in-depth and feature stories they’ve come to expect from the staff of National DRAGSTER, in a timely fashion, and in a format of their choosing.”

National DRAGSTER will be printed biweekly in 25 issues including the annual Fan Guide. The publication will become a feature-based magazine with bigger photos, attractive presentation, extensive Sportsman coverage, and more technical and racing how-to articles NHRA Members have requested. In addition, NHRA Members will receive both the print and digital edition of National DRAGSTER. The digital edition was introduced in 2012.

National DRAGSTER will be joined by a companion member-only website, NationalDRAGSTER.net.  NationalDRAGSTER.net will offer exclusive and far-reaching NHRA information for which National DRAGSTER is famous. NationalDRAGSTER.net will offer in-depth, live coverage from the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, bonus content from the print edition, Sportsman coverage, and daily breaking news and behind-the-scenes reporting above and beyond what is currently available on NHRA.com.

“We believe that an attractive biweekly magazine and a companion website with daily NHRA Drag Racing news as it happens will deliver the value NHRA Members expect from National DRAGSTER,” said Ridder.

The first issue of 2013, dated Jan. 25, marks the beginning of National DRAGSTER’s new schedule and is available for free preview at NationalDRAGSTER.net.. The last issue of the year will be dated Dec. 13.
