Great News for Sportsman Drag Racers! NMRA Signs 5-year Contract with Bradenton Motorsports Park
ProMedia Events, home of the National Mustang Racers Association (NMRA), is proud to announce the signing of a five-year contract with Bradenton Motorsports Park. As a result, the NMRA Keystone Automotive Ford Nationals season opener has a permanent home through 2020 in the city of Bradenton, Florida. Held in early March, the NMRA season opener is a perfect fit for Bradenton Motorsports Park due to the warm weather, eager fans, and ideal track conditions. The combination of Manatee County and the Florida Gulf beaches with the outstanding racing of NMRA makes this a destination event for the next five years.
"NMRA has successfully partnered with Bradenton Motorsports Park since 2002 to produce the Spring Break Shootout and we have seen it grow to new heights in 2015," said Steve Wolcott, the president and CEO of ProMedia Events. "This event draws participants and fans from all over the U.S. and Canada to witness one of the greatest spectacles in Blue Oval performance."
The NMRA Spring Break Shootout features the World's Fastest Fords in heads-up drag racing classes such as VP Racing Fuels Street Outlaw where turbo- and supercharged Mustangs reach 200-plus mph in the quarter-mile. There's something for everyone, from mild to wild, where fans witness early- and late-model Ford cars and trucks compete head-to-head on the track. A huge all-Ford car show on both Saturday and Sunday, a giant manufacturers' midway, a swap meet, and burnout contests add to the show for a family-friendly event that's the best value in motorsports. Bradenton Ford fans will count on this event year after year as the place to be in the springtime.
"We are honored to be part of the elite list of facilities throughout the United States who host ProMedia Events," said Alan Chervitz, Bradenton Motorsports Park co-owner. "Our area has so much to offer the race teams and fans who travel to this spectacular event each year. We are looking forward to the next five years of this event produced in partnership with the best in the business!"
Rollie Miller, NMRA National Event Director said, "The entire Bradenton Motorsports Park team have become an integral part of the NMRA family. With similar goals of taking care of the sportsman-level racer, we work together as one team to make sure that all racers, sponsors and fans have a great time at our events."
