Who doesn’t think you should be rewarded for winning? That could become a reality if you are currently running QA1 shocks/struts or carbon fiber driveshaft. If you’re not we suggest you might want to start. Not only is QA1 a leader in drag racing shocks and struts or that they offer cutting edge carbon driveshafts but because of recent events. QA1 recently announced that they have partnered with the NHRA (National Hot Rod Association) to offer contingency awards for racers in participating racing series. This is a big step for QA1, they have never before offered contingency awards for NHRA.

You might not realize but the NHRA is the largest auto racing organization in the world. They have chosen the NHRA because of the 120 different tracks that are spread across the country and their 60,000 members. QA1 appreciates every racer that is using their products and wanted to take a step further and find another way to give back. “QA1 is committed to helping racers compete at the highest level, and NHRA highlights the best of the best,” says Dave Goldie, QA1 Street Performance and Racing Product Manager. “We’re excited to partner with them to support racers who compete across the country.”

This news might be exciting for some but other might be a little perturbed because you have been using QA1 shocks, struts or carbon driveshaft before their announcement and don’t plan to go buy another set or spare driveshaft just to be eligible for the awards. Not to worry, QA1 is allowing anyone that has bought shocks, struts or a carbon fiber driveshaft within the last 5 years to be eligible for the contingency awards. You will also need to be displaying QA1 decals on your car and a W9 form on file. The awards range from $50 to $500 dollars for running QA1 shocks, struts or carbon driveshaft for participating winners and runner ups in participating classes. Below you will find the participating series and qualifying parts.
