Important Event Update! November 12 Event Cancelled! Continue to Nominate 2020 & 2021 Drivers and Mechanics for the NHSTA Safe Drivers & Mechanics Recognition

Due to a variety of pandemic-related factors, the decision has had to be made to cancel our event scheduled for November 12 in Manchester. That said, we are determined to provide an awards program of some format in the coming weeks. Please watch this website and your emails for further details. We regret the need to do this at a time when recognizing drivers and mechanics is so critical. Thank you.

Please Continue to Nominate Eligible 2020 and 2021 Drivers and Mechanics but note there is no dinner planned at this time due to low attendance for the meal. We will issue a new deadline date to submit driver and mechanic's names! If you have already submitted names, we are retaining them for later use.
