NHRA moves technical dept. to Indy
In a move to better serve the needs of the racing community at all levels of competition, NHRA will move its Technical Department headquarters to Indianapolis. The Tech Department will be housed at the offices at O’Reilly Raceway Park at Indianapolis and continue to be headed by Vice President-Technical Operations Glen Gray.

“We have been aggressively expanding our technical-services capabilities and believe this move will enhance our ability to not only serve our constituents but retain and recruit some of the finest technical talent in the country,” said NHRA President Tom Compton.

With the move, the Tech Department will be more readily available to the racing community, given the number of teams based in Indianapolis and the number of licensed drivers in the Eastern and Central time zones. In addition, the proximity to a more active dragstrip will allow for further testing opportunities for all categories and products of drag racing.

The move will take place during the next few months, and Gray will move to the Indianapolis area later this year. NHRA will maintain a technical presence on the West Coast, with Danny Gracia, national technical director, remaining in the company’s Glendora, Calif., headquarters along with Technical Services Representative and newly appointed Division 7 Tech Director Pat Cvengros.

NHRA has been placing personnel in key locations around the country in the last year. Besides the Tech Department headquarters move to Indianapolis, NHRA recently established a sales office in Charlotte led by Vice President of Sales & Business Development Tony Driscoll.

NHRA’s corporate headquarters will remain in Glendora. The Southern California area has long been identified as the birthplace of the sport, and it was there that 60 years ago Wally Parks founded NHRA.
