NHKA Race 1 is Finally Here!

The long wait is over! We have 136 drivers registered for Race 1 of the 2022 NHKA Racing Series season at Canaan Motor Club Saturday. We will be using a slightly different format than usual, so please be sure to read this entire update.

Welcome Back Spectators!
We are pleased to be able to welcome family, friends and spectators back to our events. Pit pass wristbands are required for everyone on the property. They will be sold at the gate ($15 cash only) Friday evening 4-8pm and Saturday morning 6:30am-Noon. Each person must be present to receive their wristband. All minor spectators must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, and a 2022 minor waiver must be signed at the gate if not already on file. Spectators are welcome to mingle with the drivers in the paddock and watch the action from the designated viewing areas. However, guests are not allowed in the grid and scale area.
