2013 NMRA Race Classes
Afco Street Outlaw
Street Outlaw is new for 2013 and will showcase a variety of 7-second machines running on slicks or drag radials. Rules allow for small-blocks and-big blocks, naturally aspirated small- and big-blocks, or single-power-adder vehicles using DOT 275/60-15 radial or true 28x10.5 slicks. All engine types are permitted a maximum of 588 ci. Power-adder options range from a single 94mm turbo, two supercharged combinations using the Procharger F1-X and XB-105, nitrous small-blocks with multiple guns, and nitrous big-blocks with a maximum of two stages. With low-7-second e.t.’s and speeds closing in on 200 mph, this will be the fastest and most exciting class in 2013.
Small-block Ford engines, combined with nitrous oxide injection or a supercharger and a small tire is a recipe for great racing. These mid-8-second Mustangs make up Renegade. With a max cubic inch limit of 410 and a single-power adder, racers are given weight breaks based on their combination to keep the playing field even.
Nitto Tire Factory Stock
Nitto Tire Factory Stock is an affordable way to race for an NMRA championship. Drivers can run '79-newer Mustangs and Fords with a 302- or 4.6L-based bullet no larger than 313ci. With high 10-second performance at an affordable cost, Factory Stock is a great way to get into heads-up racing.
Strange Engineering Coyote Stock
Equalizing the competition with sealed crate engines and electronics is what Strange Engineering Coyote Stock is all about. Open to any '54-and-newer Ford body, competitors must use a specific Ford Racing Performance Parts 5.0-liter Coyote crate engine. Coyote Stock is entering its second season and we look for this to be one of the most competitive NMRA classes in 2013.
