Do you have the NHRA Nitro Gene? If you give the time to the hundredth of a second, call a freeway exit ramp your "shutdown area," refer to your garage as your "pit" and thoroughly enjoy the smell of burnt rubber, chances are you do.

NHRA announced today the launch of the Show Off Your NHRA Nitro Gene video contest and sweepstakes to celebrate NHRA's season-long tribute to the generations of families, both on the track and in the stands, who have made NHRA the world's largest motorsports sanctioning body. The contest is a way for fans to show their Nitro Gene to the world.

Beginning May 11, fans can enter both the Show Off Your NHRA Nitro Gene video contest and sweepstakes by visiting NHRA's Facebook page.

Fans are encouraged to shoot a short video, no longer than 60 seconds, to show why they have the NHRA Nitro Gene, then post it to NHRA's Facebook page via the Show Off Your NHRA Nitro Gene video contest app. Fans will have the chance to share their videos with their friends and vote for their favorites throughout the contest.

"The Nitro Generation is what the NHRA is all about," said Pro Stock driver Erica Enders. "I definitely have the Nitro Gene and couldn't think of a better way for our fans to show off theirs than by putting together awesome videos. I can't wait to see them all and especially the winning video on ESPN2." In true NHRA Drag Racing fashion, the top 16 entries will be identified based exclusively on a fan vote and advance to the second round. The first round of fan voting ends on July 23, 2012. The second round of fan voting will narrow down the top eight at the conclusion of the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals at Brainerd Int'l Raceway on Aug. 19, 2012.

A panel of NHRA and ESPN2 judges will evaluate the top eight finalists and pick the winning entry, which will be shown on ESPN2 during the telecast of the 58th running of the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals. The winning fan will also win two tickets to four 2013 NHRA events of their choice.

Fans entering the sweepstakes have a chance to win a pair of tickets to the 2013 NHRA event of their choice or an official NHRA T-shirt.
