14th Annual SCT NMRA Nationals

See Nitto and John Urist take to the strip when NMRA comes to Maryland!
Event Details:
All the cars and all the stars of NMRA Ford drag racing will return once again to famed Maryland International Raceway for the ultimate Blue Oval slugfest! Last year's event was huge, and this year's NMRA event promises to be even bigger as word spread around the Ford drag racing world that MIR's facility is among the best in the U.S. and the racing surface is perfect for setting national records. The addition of the SVT Shootout will have the facility bursting at the seams as hundreds of new race & show participants competing in special SVT-only race and car show classes. This is a "must attend" event for any Ford fanatic where they will see the best in NMRA and Ford motorsports!

This event will also bring out each of the NMRA's premier heads-up classes - the epitome of Ford drag racing. Many of the NMRA's regulars live within close proximity to Maryland International Raceway and use it for testing, so they may have a leg up on the competition due to their familiarity with the facility - but don't let that fool you! Each racer coming from afar will be looking to take their shot for all the glory on the MIR 1320 in their respective classes and take down those local stars, so get your tickets early for this one - it's sure to be a classic.

9th Annual Nitto NMRA/NMCA Super Bowl

See Nitto and John Urist take to the strip when NMRA comes to Maryland!

Event Details:

One month after the swing event on the points tour, the NMRA rolls into Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Illinois, over the weekend of July 10-13, 2014. The 9th Annual Nitto Tire NMRA/NMCA Super Bowl of Street legal Drag Racing Presented by Strange Engineering is one of the crown jewels in ProMedia organization's family of events. By combining all of the classes across both racing sanctions, selecting an outstanding venue like Route 66 Raceway that is centrally located to much of the country, and bringing the baddest street-legal style cars in the country together in one place, the stage is set for ground-breaking, record-setting events to take place.

Over the last several years, the Route 66 surface has been home to many record-setting passes - from John Kolivas' 7.321 in SSO a few years ago while running on a tiny 275/60/15 drag radial tire to last year's efforts from Lyon, Leslie, Jr. and more. It's called the Super Bowl of Street legal Drag Racing for a reason, and the racing action reflects that title. Over 30 race classes filled with all kinds of awesome Detroit iron, walkin' and talkin' down the track - this event is an absolute must! Last year, in the Super Bowl portion of the event, the NMRA came out on top over the NMCA for the fifth time in seven years - will the NMCA's class winners be able to take the title this year? You'll only know if you show up, so make your plans now!
