SVT 20th Anniversary Shootout
SVT was born to build high-performance Ford vehicles and the NMRA Keystone Automotive Ford Nationals will be celebrating SVT's 20th anniversary by hosting a special SVT Shootout at Maryland International Raceway in Mechanicsville, Maryland, the weekend of May 3-5, 2013. It's only fitting that the number one all-Ford Motorsport show in the U.S. plays host to this speed-infused celebration. SVT Shootout participants will join NMRA's community of racers and car show enthusiasts for one of the largest and baddest all-Ford events of the year. And as a bonus, certain SVT racing classes include a free secondary race class entry!

VMP Superchargers has stepped up once again to sponsor the Terminator/GT500 Shootout class that brings together some of the quickest Cobras and GT500s in the U.S. for a winner-take-all format at this special SVT event. Mingle with the hottest tuners and car builders for dragstrip fun and a Shootout to decide which model is better—Terminator or Shelby GT500. Watch the Internet forums come alive for a real-world slugfest. Each Terminator/GT500 Shootout participant will also receive a free entry into Saturday's SVT Muscle True Street class (must fit True Street rules) for even more chances to win.

The SVT Lightning truck community is one of the most exciting SVT brands as evident by the sheer number of trucks still being modified and turned into dragstrip haulers. If you are a Lightning enthusiast then you won't want to miss this event. The biggest Lightning shops, including Johnny Lightning Performance, will be hitting the strip with 8-second performances. Lightning racers are invited to join the popular Truck & Lightning category or the SVT Lightning True Street segment to do battle exclusively against other Lightnings for cash and prizes. Racers in SVT Lightning True Street will receive a free entry into Sunday's SVT Index Rumble class.

Tremec True Street is always one of the largest classes run on Saturday at each NMRA event. There will be a separate SVT Muscle True Street class ('93-'13 SVT cars only) and a SVT Lightning True Street class ('93-'95 and '99-'04 Lightning trucks only), each with its own cash and prizes—exclusively for SVT racers! SVT Muscle and Lightning True Street racers will make three consecutive passes down the quarter-mile, and $250 and a 6-foot trophy will be awarded to the overall fastest car and truck; $100 and a plaque will be awarded to each car and truck racer with the closest average to 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15 seconds! SVT Muscle and Lightning True Street racers will receive a free entry into Sunday's SVT Index Rumble class.

If showing your car or truck is more your style then look no further than the UPR Products All-Ford Auto Show with over 100 awards given away at this event. Show off your ride for a chance to get featured in 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords, or NMRA's own Race Pages magazine. There will be special SVT-only auto show classes and awards, so come out with your ride for a chance to bring some home!
