How do I become a NRHA Judge?

The prospective judge must complete an application and submit to the NRHA office no later than February 15. Thirty applicants will be selected by the Judges Committee to attend the Judges Applicant Seminar. Upon successful completion of the Judges Applicant Seminar, the applicant will be eligible to attend an NRHA Judges School. Only after passing the testing requirements of an NRHA Judges School, will the prospective judges have their names submitted to the Board of Directors for consideration for final judging privileges.
