Celebrating its 25th year, the annual Nitto Tire NMRA Spring Break Shootout traditionally held at Bradenton Motorsports Park in Bradenton, Florida, did not disappoint, as this longstanding event has become the Spring Break destination for Mustang and Ford enthusiasts everywhere, and a great way to kick off the racing season.
As usual, the QA1 True Street class was packed with over 130 contestants from all over the country and featured not one, but two, 7-second averages—a first for the class in its long history.
A tradition in its own right and a major part of every NMRA event is the presentation of the Victor award and prize money to each class winner in the Aerospace Components Winner’s Circle. We would like to congratulate all of the event winners who kicked off the NMRA season in the Aerospace Components Winner’s Circle, and extend our appreciation for the support of all the racers and fans who came to the season opener or followed the action online courtesy of the SpeedVideo.com livestream.
The Mustang and Ford racing action picks up in just a couple of weeks, as the second stop of the NMRA Drag Racing series presented by Keystone Automotive comes to Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia, where it meets up with the NMCA Drag Racing series presented by E3 Spark Plugs for the 11th Annual Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals presented by MAHLE Motorsport. Come see the World’s Fastest Fords or join in the action and see if you can race your way to the Aerospace Components Winner’s Circle.
