Whatever respect I still had for NHRA has now totally evaporated. That is just out and out larceny. With a simple email they could have contacted you to request permission to use your photo. But instead they chose to purposely obliterate your copyright notation and claim the photo as their own. And THEY would be the first ones to scream bloody murder if someone were to use NHRA copyrighted material.
I do hope you pursue this. Perhaps we can get some HR.Com members to start flooding NHRA with email complaints in your support. I just wonder how many other artists/photographers they do this to.
