The latest issue of NHRA National Dragster magazine, being offered in digital format only and free to the racing community during the COVID-19 pandemic, is now online for reading. Like its predecessors, it’s also packed with interactive elements, with links to related videos, audio, and free downloads.
Featuring the spectacular new 1,700-hp electric Mustang Cobra Jet on the cover, the issue is packed with information, not just about the brave new racer from Ford, but also a deep dive into the tech sheets of its gas-burning Mustang brother, the star of the SAMTech.edu NHRA Factory Stock Showdown, as well as its factory competitors, the Chevrolet COPO Camaro and the Dodge Challenger Drag Pak. We’ve also got historic looks back at the creation of some of the legendary big-block powerplants from years past: the 421 Pontiac, the 426 Hemi, the 427 Chevy, and the Ford 428.
We also look at the ascension of Matt Bynum, the newest star of the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Series and winner of the Nostalgia Funny Car title at the March Meet, and his road to glory from crewmember to driver.
Speaking of nostalgic things, we’ve also got an expansive photo feature of cars with cool names, rides like the Blue Max, the Jade Grenade, Showtime, Brutus, and many more.
Also in this issue, NHRA on FOX lead announcer Brian Lohnes shares with our readers the 10 most interesting people he’s met in his long career in the sport, and world champ Luke Bogacki shares his secrets to brand building for racers.
