If there’s one thing that can be said about the NMRA and NMCA Drag Racing series, it’s that the people at the events love to modify their cars. There is a multi-billion dollar performance aftermarket that supports their personalization habit, and while each modification suggests a desired result, there is one modification that puts the exclamation point on the whole enterprise—one that says, “this is me,” and that’s the vanity license plate.
You’d be hard-pressed to find an upgrade that’s more definitive of an owner, and while we were covering the 2018 Nitto Tire NMRA World Finals at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky, we decided to whip out the cell phone and snag a few from the grounds. Maybe you need some inspiration for your own? Maybe you’ll just find it amusing. In any case, we’re glad folks take such pride and interest in their vehicles, whether it’s installing a twin-turbo system, a capable suspension, or just setting themselves and their cars apart with a unique license plate.
