Following a two-month break after the season-opening event in Florida, round two of the 2009 NMRA season stormed into Atco, New Jersey, on May 15-17 for the ninth annual Nitto NMRA Nationals, sponsored by Ford and presented by Downs Ford. While the drag racers roared down the quarter-mile in their quest for season points, Mustang and Ford car show participants from around the Garden State vied for plaques and trophies in the All-Ford Auto Show, hosted at Atco by a joint effort between Wicked Motorsports and We've got to hand it to the NMRA for handing out a ton of awards at their shows. At Atco, nearly 100 plaques and trophies were distributed on Saturday and Sunday for everything from Top 20 Fords to Best Classic Mustang to Best of Show. Bob Hahn Sr. nabbed two of the event's biggest awards-Sunday's Best of Show and the Mustang Monthly Editor's Choice award-with his 77-mile '92 SAAC Mk 1 Mustang.
