The NMRA Motorsport Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway couldn’t catch a break. The rain kept coming throughout the entire weekend. Anytime the NMRA crew thought they could dry the track, the rain had other ideas, and Mother Nature would conveniently wait until TJ and the crew almost had it dry before raining on the parade, literally. The NMRA tried its best to make it happen, but once the rain started again on Sunday, the towel was thrown in the ring.

To finish the race, the NMRA postponed the event to be ran during the SuperNationals at National Trail Raceway, just outside of Columbus, Ohio. Though the R-word has been mumbled a couple times, blue skies have been the norm, with only a few threatening clouds in the distance.

The NMRA was able to get through the eliminations from the Ford Motorsport Nationals; to give you the Cliff’s Notes version, since we have a lot to cover with both the Motorsport Nationals and the SuperNationals taking place this weekend, we’ll list the winners in each category.
