Entry List

First Responders

First Responders LogoThroughout the 2017 season, the NHRA will pay tribute to the legion of first responders, the heroes who are among the first people to arrive and assist at the scene of an emergency.

NHRA Salutes First Responders will honor medical professionals, law-enforcement officers, firefighters, members of the armed forces, and a number of other professions charged with the safety and well-being of the public, much like the Safety Safari is charged with the safety and well-being of the racing community.

As part of the tribute, first responders will be eligible for discounted tickets to the Fallen Patriots NHRA Route 66 Nationals presented by K&N Filters through SheerID. Click here to purchase.
