The NHRA Drag Race Announcer Group is a program designed to recognize, foster, and elevate the work of drag racing announcers across the country. From aspiring young announcers to those that have been at it for years, DRAG is an interactive program which is rooted in the fundamentals of the craft.
The role of an announcer goes far beyond simply calling out the numbers on a scoreboard or calling competitors to the staging lanes. Through video discussions that can be joined live or viewed when convenient for members, to interactive video coaching, NHRA DRAG aims to be an engaging program that can help everyone on every level of the sport gain experience, knowledge, confidence, and acumen. Discussions will be held with the most well-known professional announcers, track operators, legendary voices from the sport's history, and more. They will be topical and informational while encouraging participation.
This program is designed to help foster and create a diverse, skilled, and enthusiastic core of announcing talent in the sport of drag racing. The aim is to create the best version of everyone involved in the program, not to create a uniform style for everyone to follow. If you are an announcer or someone motivated to ply the trade, NHRA DRAG is the program for you!
