The latest issue of NHRA National Dragster is online and available to NHRA Members and in the mail to members around the world.

The issue incorporates the NHRA Fan Guide along with traditional National Dragster elements as we prepare to race into the 2021 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series.

In separate interviews, NHRA Funny Car stars John Force and Cruz Pedregon discuss their preparations for the 2021 season. Force also delves deeply into the pandemic’s effect on his 2020 campaign and looks ahead to his return to competition after more than a year out of the driver’s seat. Pedregon talks about the numerous changes in his camp, including the signing of a long-term extension with Snap-on Tools and his addition of John Collins and team as his crew for the season.

While Force and Pedregon are prodigious winners, we’ve also compiled our list of those who might be next to hoist their first Camping World Series Wally this season.

The issue also contains our first official race coverage of the year, highlighting the action from the Division 2 NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event at Orland Speed World Dragway, and an in-depth feature about the famed engine builders at Reher-Morrison.

Within the Fan Guide portion, readers can trace the evolution of the Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock, and Pro Stock Motorcycle classes from inception to current and all of the performance and mechanical milestones along the way.

A huge section introduces you to a large number of the drivers who will take part in the Camping World Series this season, and we also take look at many of the NHRA’s major racing programs for racers at all levels of the sport.
