Competition Vehicle

NTPA Competition Vehicles

Vehicles entered into NTPA classes of competition may be registered at one of three levels—Grand National, Regional National, or Non-Points—or may be entered on a provisional one-entry registration (Per-Hook) basis.

Each vehicle must be constructed and operated within the rules of the class division in which it competes. Each vehicle must pass a thorough inspection by an NTPA Tech Official at each event prior to competition. For applicable divisions, each vehicle must possess and display up-to-date rollcage and bellhousing certification decals.

For more information or questions regarding NTPA vehicle registration, inspection, and rules compliance, contact the NTPA office at 614-436-1761 or reference the latest issue of NTPA Pulling Rules.

Registration Types

Vehicle Registration for GN or RN Championship Points

Each NTPA Competition Vehicle must be registered at the Grand National or Regional National level to earn points toward season championships at that level and bonus series awards. A GN-registered vehicle cannot earn RN points; an RN-registered vehicle cannot earn GN points. A RN-registered vehicle, however, may earn RN points in more than one region in the same season.

NTPA championship and bonus-series points are earned by the vehicle, regardless of the driver. Each driver must possess a full-year Competitor or provisional (“per-hook”) license, and each vehicle must be associated with at least one full-year licensed driver.

New in 2024 (GN-level classes only): All entries for GN-level classes will be conducted online via the Trackside portal, and entries will close by a posted deadline which will be two or more days in advance of the event’s first (or only) session.

The 2024 NTPA Vehicle Registration application form (GN, RN, or NP) may be completed and payment submitted via the Trackside portal.

The 2024 NTPA Per-Hook application form may be completed via the Trackside portal. The additional Per-Hook fee for each class entered will be charged at the time of entry.

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.

Provisional One-Entry ("Per-Hook") Vehicle Registration

If a competition vehicle has not been registered at one of the Grand National, Regional National, or Non-Points levels, then an application for a provisional registration, commonly called a “per-hook,” must be completed and submitted at each event, and an additional per-hook fee must be paid for each class entered.

New in 2024 (GN-level classes only): A vehicle must either be pre-registered at one of the levels (GN, RN, or NP) or a Per-Hook application form must be completed on the vehicle’s behalf prior to its entry into a GN-level class. All entries for GN-level classes will be conducted online via the Trackside portal, and entries will close by a posted deadline which will be two or more days in advance of the event’s first (or only) session.
