NHRA’s legion of fans now have easier access than ever before to obtain live race updates, results, driver bios, schedules and more with the new release of the NHRA mobile app, which launched February 6.
The new app is offered in both a 100 percent free version and a premium version. All of the features and capabilities are the same on both versions of the app, but upgrading from NHRA Mobile (free) to NHRA Premium offers an ad-free mobile experience for the one-time fee of $2.99.
For fans who have the previous paid app, the NHRA Mobile Premium app will be updated free of charge.
The app, designed by Phunware, the pioneer of Multiscreen as a Service, allows fans to be able to follow all of their favorite NHRA drivers as they compete for Mello Yello Drag Racing Series world championships. Fans attending one of the 24 NHRA Mello Yello Series events across the US can now get all the information they need right from their phones—at their seats, in the pits or when they are exploring NHRA’s Nitro Alley.
Some of the great features of the new app include: live up-to-the-second timing of all head-to-head pro and sportsman races, real-time pro race results, the option of purchasing the live NHRA Audiocast as an in-app purchase, all the current videos from NHRA’s YouTube page, as well as a live feed from NHRA’s social media platforms, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The app also will display detailed NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event schedules, and make it possible for fans to purchase NHRA Mello Yello Drag Series event tickets, obtain NHRA news, articles and a full race recap from National DRAGSTER and NHRA.com. Fans can also browse pro driver profiles with career stats and driver specific news, check full updated pro points, get timely behind the scenes news and monitor driver blogs. In addition, special sportsman news updates from NHRA.com will be included, as well as an informative section called Inside the NHRA (About Drag Racing, History, Glossary & Info).
Phunware has developed mobile applications for NBC Sports, the NFL, NASCAR, Turner Networks, and E!, among others.
