2015 Open Rider Clinic - Feburary 14 & 15, 2015 at Prairie Mountain Ranch near Madden (just north of Cochrane) - this year we will be featuring the 2013 NRHA Open winner - Jason Vanlandingham from Whitesboro TX.

The October edition of the Rundown is now out! Please click below to view.
Thank you to Lyle Jackson for contributing to this edition.
I asked Kim Maharaj if she would be willing to send our members an article on what the NRHA Affiliate Committee was looking at and some of the recent issues facing the NRHA. She kindly agreed and sent the below article - I foolishly overlooked adding it when compiling the October Rundown. Sencere appologies to Kim that this was not included, she provides great comments and insight into some of the recent topics at hand. I have added the link below so you can all read it despite my error. Thank you again to Kim for sending this to us, I hope it is something we can continue to incorporate in the future.
