Coverage of the National Hot Rod Association Drag Racing series that has spawned multiple networks since 1983. NHRA events have been broadcast on television, with such efforts dating back as far as 1983. By the 1990s, events were split between ESPN, NBC, and The Nashville Network. TNN also broadcast a weekly highlight program, NHRA Today. Due to logistical and scheduling issues, including the possibility of long turnaround times between heats, weather delays, and other factors, events were typically broadcast in a condensed form via tape delay. From 1992 until 2000, TNN carried live coverage of selected final rounds, typically with a condensed package to air until the finals began.

ESPN became the exclusive home of the entire NHRA series beginning in 2001. WIth the trouble ESPN had programming the series in a reliable way, they left ESPN in 2015 and moved to Fox Sports 1 in 2016.
