NZDRA's mission is to exceed the expectations of its members, competitors, volunteers, member tracks and corporate partners while developing a safe, sustainable and entertaining sport.

The sport of Drag Racing, i.e. the pairing of two vehicles against one another in a race from a standstill start through a straightway course, in New Zealand is under the control of The New Zealand Drag Racing Association Incorporated (NZDRA). This Association was established in November 1993, to be the controlling authority for Drag Racing in New Zealand. The purpose of NZDRA is to be "an organization to represent, control and coordinate the sport of Drag Racing in New Zealand". This delegation authority was first granted by Motorsport New Zealand in 1993 with approval of the FIA. The NZDRA constitution can be found on the NZ web site & the Incorporated society web site.

NZDRA is a member of the FIA Drag Racing Commission, the SFI Foundation (US) and alliances with NHRA and ANDRA.
