NHRA Announces New President, New CEO

The National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) has announced that Glen Cromwell, who rose through NHRA’s ranks from Division Director to become Senior Vice President, Media and Marketing, is promoted to President, effective Jan. 1, 2018.

Cromwell succeeds Peter Clifford as President. Clifford will assume the newly created post of Chief Executive Officer, following over 20 years with the organization, including serving as its president since 2015. Cromwell will head up NHRA’s leadership team and will report to Clifford and the board.

Cromwell joined NHRA in 1997 and has been a key player leading the sport’s marketing efforts for the past 20 years. In addition, he has been leading all of the sanctioning body’s television and new media activities and its owned racetracks.

“I look forward to my new role and to working with the entire NHRA team to bring NHRA Championship Drag Racing to even more people,” Cromwell said.  “Thanks to the support of our many marketing partners; our broadcast partner Fox Sports; our track partners; our team owners, drivers and crews; our loyal fans; and of course our team of dedicated employees, NHRA drag racing is poised for continued growth and greater exposure.  I look forward to continuing to work with Peter Clifford and the rest of the board as we enhance our programs and continue to expand the sport.”
