Nostalgia Drag Racing Association has been
presenting the Legion of Honor awards since 2004 to
many of the Pioneers of Drag Racing as esteemed
recognition for their many contributions to the
sport and industry.
The awards are
selected from nominations made from friends of the
industry and sport. The process takes longer than we
would like due to the amount of people who are
nominated and recommended for the award.
Since there is a
limit of funding available we have to revert some
who have been recommended until the following year.
Membership fees from the National Nostalgia Drag
Racing Association are used for the sole purpose of
funding the Legion of Honor. Without this support we
cannot continue with these awards.
We know that those
nominated are worthy of due consideration for the
Legion of Honor and will be placed in order of the
date their nomination is received. We are working
as expeditiously as possible to honor our friends
and associates with whom we have been associated for
many years. It is with sadness that we lose some
who leave us before they experience their just
plaudits that they are due.
We are peddling as
fast as we can and hope that all understand that it
is our every Intent to honor our deserving friends
as quickly as possible.
