NOTRA is an all volunteer organization which sponsors amateur oval race meets for a total of 14 breeds of sighthounds. Sighthounds get to enjoy their natural instincts to run, while chasing an artificial lure consisting of synthetic fur and white plastic trash bags. Amateur racing in the US was originally an activity for whippets and whippets still make up a large percentage of the entries at many NOTRA meets. This site is dedicated to promoting the sport of oval racing with the other breeds that NOTRA recognizes, hence the "other breed" designation.

Eligible NOTRA breeds include Afghan Hounds, Basenjis, Borzoi, Cirneco dell Etna, Greyhounds, Ibizan Hounds, Irish Wolfhounds, Italian Greyhounds, Magyar Agars, Pharaoh Hounds, Portuguese Podengos, Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Salukis, Scottish Deerhounds,  Sloughis, Silken Windhounds.
