The National Auto Sport Association is proud to announce significant updates to its medical process for the 2023 racing season. These changes aim to make it even more convenient for drivers to participate in NASA events while maintaining the highest safety standards.
In an effort to offer a more streamlined experience for qualified individuals, NASA is launching a new Self-Certification Process. This innovative process allows eligible drivers to self-certify their current medical status and past medical history without the need for a doctor visit. To take advantage of this service, simply complete the required forms and pay a $50 processing fee. The self-certification will be valid until the end of the current race season. NASA continues to recommend annual checkups with a doctor for all drivers.
Drivers should be aware of changes to EKG requirements beginning March 24, 2023. Previously, drivers age 45 or greater were required to submit a baseline 12-lead EKG tracing as part of their medical evaluation. In the updated process, this requirement will apply to drivers ages 55 and older. This change is designed to make it even easier for drivers to participate in NASA events while ensuring the safety of all members.
NASA is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable racing experience for all drivers, and these updates reflect the organization’s dedication to continually improving its processes. Gear up and race on!
