To streamline the process of medical certification for racing competitors, NASA has launched a new certification method. This allows eligible drivers to self-certify their existing medical evaluation. No need for a doctor visit. By completing the required forms and paying the processing fee ($50), racers over age 55 may self-certify, as NASA continues to recommend annual checkups by a doctor for all drivers.
Under the updated process, drivers ages 55 and above are required to submit a baseline 12-lead EKG tracing as part of their medical evaluation. Previously, this was required for drivers age 45 above.
This change is designed to make it even easier for drivers to participate in NASA events while ensuring the safety of all members.
NASA remains committed to safe and enjoyable experiences for all members. These changes reflect the organization’s dedication to continually improvement.
See you at the track!
