The latest issue of NHRA National Dragster magazine is now available online and is in the mail to NHRA members around the world. Even as we celebrate the historic publication's first printed edition since the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, the magazine is still be offered online for free to all for the foreseeable future.

The issue includes complete coverage of the announcement of the return to racing in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, including a new, printable 2020 event schedule.

The National Dragster staff also spent a lot of time on the phone with a collection of Top Fuel and Funny Car drivers to find out what they've been doing to stay mentally and physically sharp and their thoughts about being ready to unleash 11,000 ho with their right feet. We also talk to two of the sport's top nitro crew chiefs, David Grubnic and Jim Oberhofer, to their thoughts about the new schedule and how racing in Gainesville in September instead of March and Bristol in October instead of June will affect their tune-ups.

Shawn Langdon gave us some terrific insight into the process of relearning how to drive a Top Fueler after two years in a Funny Car and the difference between the two nitro beasts.

Pro Stock fans will enjoy the interview with 10 top power brokers for their class. From Richard Freeman to Warren Johnson, we learn the secrets of their successes and the power-building philosophies.

We've also got another great photo essay -- this one taking a look at wheelstands -- for your viewing please as well as some in-depth crankshaft basics for the gearheads out there, plus a whole lot more.
