Subscription Questions

  • When will I receive my first issue?

    For domestic orders, please allow 6-8 weeks for your first copy of Racer X to arrive. For Canadian orders, expect 7-8 weeks. For international orders 10-12 weeks.

  • What is an Automatic Renewal?

    As a convenience, all subscriptions are placed on Automatic renewal, except prohibited by law. Automatic renewal service ensures you continuous magazine delivery as long as we have a valid credit card on file. With rising costs in postage and materials, we appreciate your participation as it also helps keep price increases at a minimum. 

    You can turn off automatic renewals by visiting your Subscription Manager,  click details on your active subscription and unchecking the auto-renew box. 
    You can update your credit card information or make a payment in your Subscription Manager as well. 

  • What if I missed an issue?

    There are several reasons why you may not get your issue:

    1. Incorrect Address on file: To verify we have the correct one, in Your Subscriptions, click details on the active subscription and from there you can add a new address or edit your existing one in case of a data entry error.

    Please note: If the Post Office alerts us that your magazine is undeliverable, we have no further obligation unless we receive a corrected address within one year. 

    2. Your subscription has expired: Visit Your Subscriptions to check the status of your subscription. If the status is showing Expired, you can easily renew by clicking the Renew button. To ensure you don't miss an issue be sure to renew at least one month before your expiration date. 

    3. Your subscription has been suspended:  Visit Your Subscriptions to check the status of your subscription. If your subscription is suspended due to an outstanding payment, it means the credit card we have on file was unable to be charged. You can make a payment and reinstate your subscription by clicking the Pay Now button. If your subscription is suspended but not due to an outstanding payment, please reach out to our customer service team at

    If none of these options apply, contact customer service. 

    International subscribers, please note: Due to various problems and high shipping costs, we are no longer mailing out a physical replacement to our international subscribers.
