Membership Types

Competition License

A year-long competition license with the NTPA is a great value for pullers who intend to compete regularly at NTPA events, regardless of circuit level. A competition license bestows driving privileges at NTPA-sanctioned events to whom the license is assigned only. This license type enables a competitor to enter his or her vehicle in an NTPA-sanctioned class for which it qualifies, pull for available prize money, and be insured while on the track.

Competitors must be at least 16 years of age, but those under the age of 18 must have either a parent’s or guardian’s written consent. All competition license holders receive insurance coverage, a printed copy of NTPA Pulling Rules, a competition license card, and NTPA shield patch(es) and decal(s).

The 2024 NTPA Competition License application form may be completed and payment submitted via the Trackside portal.

The 2024 NTPA Competition License application can be downloaded as a printable PDF. Note: The processing of applications submitted via paper and U.S. Mail will be delayed.

The U.S. Government requires that the WPI/NTPA office report 2024 winnings of $600 or more to the Internal Revenue Service. Please complete and submit an IRS W-9 form for each check recipient.

Check recipients associated with registered vehicles are eligible for the NTPA’s Direct Deposit program, which distributes purse and point-fund payments that originate from the NTPA office electronically. A completed Direct Deposit form and one official bank document associated with the deposit account (e.g., a voided check) are required for enrollment into NTPA Direct Deposit.

Crewperson License

With each Grand National or Regional National NTPA vehicle registration, two free crewperson licenses are assigned to a vehicle. Additional crewperson licenses are available for purchase through the NTPA office. Crewperson licenses do not have driving privileges under any circumstances but do have insurance coverage while crewing for NTPA-registered vehicles on the track. Crewpersons must be at least 14 years of age, but those under the age of 18 must have either a parent’s or guardian’s written consent. All crewperson license holders receive insurance coverage and a crewperson license card, however only paid crewpersons receive a NTPA shield patch(es) and decal(s).

DISCLAIMER: The licenses listed above are intended for use as competition entry only and are not season passes. Credentials will be issued upon entry at events only. The NTPA and its Board of Directors have the discretion to deny the issuance of a license to any current or prospective members.
