The 14th Annual Nitto Tire NMRA/NMCA Super Bowl of Street Legal Drag Racing presented by FST Carburetors was a big success once again, and the event, which boasts the most heads-up classes of any race in the world, saw many new racers join current NMRA and NMCA competitors as they both attempted to achieve maximum, win their class, enter in the Bob Curran Memorial Super Bowl Shootouts, and finally, take a trip to the Aerospace Components Winner’s Circle to receive their Victor trophy, prize money, and of course, the Nitto Diamond Tree ring presented to the Super Bowl Shootout participants of the winning series.
Since 2005, Nitto Tire has been awarding racers in the NMRA and NMCA its custom-designed Nitto Diamond Tree Ring to each class champion. Nitto, recognizing the immense effort it takes to win a class championship, wanted to create something racers could wear everyday. The result is this ring, which features ruby, emerald, and diamond insets, which represent the starting line tree.
While the overall design of the ring doesn’t change, each year there are subtle changes to the ring, which allows each season’s rings to be a bit different than previous years. As Nitto awards Diamond Tree rings to those who claim NMRA and NMCA championships at the end of the year, the company wanted to reward the racers of the winning series at the Nitto NMRA/NMCA Super Bowl of Street Legal Drag Racing as well.
