NMRA/NMCA Announce Augustine Herrera as National Tech Director

ProMedia Events and Publishing, the parent company of the Holley NMRA Ford Nationals and NMCA Muscle Car Nationals, has announced Augustine Herrera as the new NMRA/NMCA National Tech Director. His duties include overseeing fair competition in both drag racing series and leading the on-site tech staff at all national events. 

“Augustine joined our team in 2019 and quickly learned the ins and outs of our categories and our competitor base. He has an extensive history in the sport from competing in Outlaw 10.5 and handling car chief duties on an NHRA Pro Modified team to currently owning his own motorcycle race shop that specializes in drag racing,” said Rollie Miller, National Event Director and General Manager for NMRA/NMCA. “We wish Roger Conley the best in his new endeavors and we are looking forward to Augustine taking over this position.” 

Herrera will be available in-person at the 2021 PRI Trade Show, December 9-11 in Indianapolis in the NMRA/NMCA Drag Racing Series Booth #1632. 

Herrera can be contacted through email at [email protected]. For more information, visit nmradigital.com and nmcadigital.com
