The GLNFCC is a well-respected Nostalgia Alcohol Funny Car match race circuit. We have been booking funny car match races for well over 12 years.
If you are interested in joining the GLNFCC please read the requirements below.
GLNFCC MEMBERSHIP ACCEPTANCE
First submit a brief racing history and pictures of the car, trailer & tow vehicle you will use.
At this time, you will need to personally discuss your intentions with the director of the group. You will discuss the rules so there is no confusion on what the GLNFCC expects out of the members.
Once your car is completed and you have obtained the proper license and certifications, you will need to get out and get seat time in the car. This allows you and crew to get acclimated to the car and get a routine developed. This step is always extremely important as you and the crew need to be on the same page. This process could take most of the first year, but once you are able to make a string of runs within 10 % of the index and have been observed by a GLNFCC member you can move up to become an Associate Member.
Once you are an associate member you will be eligible to attend GLNFCC events to run at the end of our programs so you can display your race team. You will also be eligible to be a fill in when you are at these events. As you show advancement you can and may be used to fill out events. This does not mean that you are automatically booked into events at the beginning of the year.
Once you have proven to the group that you understand the entertainment value and that being a GLNFCC member is privilege then at the next GLNFCC year end meeting you may have the opportunity to become a GLNFCC member.
At the beginning of the year the director puts together a spread sheet of events and starts to do the bookings. The selection process is by performance and local. We like to keep the travel time down to about 6 hours; some events may require longer travels. Once you become a member you are now eligible to be booked at these shows. Now remember as a new member there is not a guaranteed number of events that you will get, some new members may have only received 1 or 2 in the first year where in some years new members may have receive 4 -5 bookings.

All drivers must give a one week notice if they will not be able to attend a scheduled event due to breakage, etc. It is very important to have a commitment to the group for scheduled events and future growth of the group. All racers should do their best to keep their equipment maintained and show ready at all times.
The GLNFCC show is all about entertaining the spectator. Drivers are expected to put the show first, I.E. side by side burnouts, short dry hops, short burst over the starting line, backing up together and staging in a prompt manner. If there is any doubt of making a successful pass do not take the run and risk causing down time for the track.
