We are currently performing system maintenance on the registration system. We will be back up and running shortly.


In many ways, the NASA instructor is the lifeblood of the organization. NASA instructors are the first point of contact for people who interested in high-performance driving. Whether you knew or not, those same people will remember their first day of HPDE with NASA — and their instructor — for the rest of their lives. NASA instructors are the leading touch point, a caretaker who ensures new members have fun and learn the fundamentals of high-performance driving in a safe and controlled manner. Being an instructor is not easy, and it’s why we at NASA have put together the Instructor Benefits program.

The only package of its kind in all of motorsports, the NASA Instructor Benefits program rewards NASA instructors for the outsize role they play in
the organization, with discounts and promotions on things like Hawk Brakes, VP Racing and more.

To show appreciation for our instructors, NASA will be adding vendors to the program over time to provide as many benefits as possible. Being a
NASA instructor isn’t always easy, but taking advantage of our Instructor Benefits is.

Active NASA instructors are eligible for exclusive perks when shopping with NASA vendors enrolled in the Instructor Benefits program.
