When the NMRA and NMCA converge on the same track there are multiple opportunities to do a little infighting between the two sanctioning bodies. The All-Star Nationals at Atlanta Dragway presented that very opportunity, and there are a couple special shootouts planned to make the race even more exciting.

First up, the Open Comp All-Star Showdown will feature the top 4 racers from each side, along with wildcard picks to make up a 16-car field. From there, it’s on like Donkey Kong to decide Open Comp supremacy. The Open Comp All-Star Showdown winner will win cold hard cash within a custom silver cup in the Aerospace Components Winners Circle.

Next is the Sealed Stock Showdown, which will pit the top 3 racers from both NMRA Coyote Stock and NMCA Chevrolet Performance Stock, along with a wildcard pick from each class for an 8-car shootout to see who has the quickest and fastest sealed engine program. The Coyote Stock and Chevrolet Performance Stock guys like to do a lot of talking, so the bragging rights will be huge with this one.

We can’t wait to see how both of these shootouts go down, and obviously, we’ll be pulling for the NMRA side in both classes. You can check out the action, as well, at Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia April 6-9.
