I read in another threat on this site that we're looking for an NHRA rulebook to post on the site. Seeing as we're all brothers (and sisters) on this site, I've started the hunt as well.

Here's a downloadable version for Sport Compacts (no, I'm not a S/C guy, but I know others are).

I hope this helps.

I looked all over NHRA.com for a pdf (or any format) downloadable "standard" rule book. Never found one, so I finally bought one for $10 (IIRC) at the local track.

The 2006 rule book should be out soon. However, if you want me to send you my 2005 rule book, I would gladly do so. Just Private message me your address and I'll package it up for ya. If you live near an NHRA track.... try calling them to see if the have any left. I'm sure they would be willing to sell it at a discount.

Don't need no stik'en rule books. I don't run no steek'en safety equipment. Consequently I only get to run one pass (T/O) about once a year to see how I'm doing before they throw me out. I used to have cars dedicated to race only, but I got married a few decades ago and that ended that. My wife would freak if she had to climb through a roll cage to get in my Big Block car (which she won't ride in any way because it's to "jerky"). Besides can you imagine me in a fire suit! (required jacket 60L, pants 56x36, gloves XXL, and foot ware 17D doesn't come in my size.) They don't call me Big Dave for nothing 6'6" 420#s

However I got my 2006 rule book today, and the updated rule changes are printed weekly in the National Dragster. Both of which come with a $60 annual fee for membership in the NHRA (been a member for years and I like being able to sit in the A/C cooled members lounge after walking the pits).
