The NHRA was founded by Wally Parks in 1951 as a means to get hot rodders off the streets and onto legal drag strips. Once a club was accepted as a NHRA club, they were issued a Charter, like the one issued to the Stockers Rod & Custom club on the left. It is dated January 1, 1958 and was signed by Wally Parks, President, and Wayne Horning, Secretary. After the Stockers Charter was posted to this site, I received the Charter for the Dragoons. It too was dated January 1, 1958 and has the same signatures. Both of these documents had a gold seal attached to the bottom left hand corner.

The Charter for the Keystone Racing Team is dated January 10, 1963. Wally Parks was still President but the Secretary was Robert G????

The "Charter Certificate" on the right was issued to the Sons of Satan in July of 1963 but there are no signatures on this document.
