Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords
2013 NMRA Event Season Preview
Excitement builds as we gear up for the '13 NMRA keystone Ford Nationals Tour
NMRA and its racers head to a new venue in 2013, thrilling Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio. The weekend of June 14-16 has been reserved for this all-Ford extravaganza, and Norwalk will play host to two exciting affairs. First is the official Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords 25th Anniversary Party, where we’ll all celebrate a quarter decade of MM&FF magazine on the quarter-mile with special guests and party plans for this birthday bash. Also scheduled for the Norwalk blowout is a 5.0 Mustang Shootout that brings the world’s quickest ’11-’13 Mustang 5.0L drag racing machines on track for pride and glory. Nitrous, supercharged, and turbocharged 5.0-powered modern Mustangs will set records, with the hottest 5.0L tuner shops leading the charge. Do you have the quickest 5.0 Mustang in America? Join the fun and find out.
The NMRA and NMCA series are brought together again at Route 66 Raceway (Joliet, Illinois) in a four-day bash July 11-14. The Super Bowl of Street-Legal Drag Racing puts both series head-to-head in a special Shootout, where the NMRA class winners compete against their NMCA rivals for bonus cash and a chance to take home a world famous Nitto Tire Diamond Tree Super Bowl Ring. The diamond-laden ring is a special design exclusively for the Super Bowl of Street-Legal Drag Racing shootout. Team NMRA has been dominating this event with 5 team wins in the first 7 NMRA/NMCA Super Bowl events. Will the NMRA dominance continue on street-legal drag racing’s biggest stage?
The 15th Annual Nitto Tire NMRA All-Ford World Finals will invade Beech Bend Raceway October 3-6. The NMRA World Finals is special—not just because it’s the largest all-Ford event of the year, but because championships are on the line and racers leave nothing to chance. World championships and world records are a big part of the NMRA World Finals as racers put in their final effort to win the exclusive Nitto Tire Diamond Tree Championship Rings.
The Tremec True Street class, presented by Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords, has averaged well over 100 competitors the past two years and is a testimonial to the crazy street-legal performance that’s possible with Mustangs and Fords. This 2013 event will also bring together 10 of the most powerful, well-engineered, and gorgeous Mustangs from around the United States to participate in 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords’ King of the Street competition. The NMRA World Finals will showcase a special VMP Tuning Terminator/GT500 Shootout as well, in which the fastest ’03/’04 Cobras and GT500s will race against each other for year-long bragging rights.
Each NMRA national event also features a huge UPR Products All-Ford Car Show, where you will see a sea of color as hundreds of Blue Oval car show participants shine up and show off their awesome late-model and early Mustangs and Fords. Magazine editors will be drooling as they search for cover cars and features amongst rows of stock and modified show cars.
All NMRA events also feature the largest all-Ford manufacturers midways and swap meets of the year. Be sure to hit the ATM on the way to any NMRA event so you can bring home great deals on the parts you need. Finally… hang on to your seats for flame-throwing 300-plus-mph jet car exhibitions and the world famous NMRA burnout contest. Past participants have gone as far as blowing tires and destroying engines for the roar of NMRA’s crowd!
