Mother Nature wasn’t kind to the NMRA over the weekend at the Ford Motorsport Nationals, ultimately raining out the event. That means she owes us one for next month’s NMRA Ford SuperNationals at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio just outside of Columbus. The 2017 version is the 14th Annual SuperNationals, and don’t forget, the Ford Motorsport Nationals will be finished up at the event, as well. That means, you get two events in one at the SuperNationals.

The SuperNationals will have all the NMRA’s finest in attendance, from Street Outlaw to Truck & Lightning competitors, and everyone in between. Hopefully, all 19 Coyote Stock racers in attendance at the Ford Motorsport Nationals will make the haul to National Trail to finish off that event, and give us more high-winding fun during qualifying and eliminations of the SuperNationals. Coyote Stock could be the hottest NMRA class at the moment, but Street Outlaw, Renegade, and Coyote Modified will be flying at National Trail Raceway.

The event also garners a large amount of True Street racers, who will be rewarded with a racer appreciation party Saturday night. The party will feature adult beverages, of course, soda for the kids and the non-drinkers, music, and a free raffle of over $8,000 worth of performance parts and prizes NMRA sponsors specifically donated for True Street racers. However, the party doesn’t end Saturday night, True Street racers also receive free entry into Sunday’s bracket race, as well.

More great news from the NMRA is that National Trail Raceway is under new ownership, and the track has a newly-repaved surface, repaired the staging lanes, installed an improved PA system, and hopefully by the time the SuperNationals take place, revamped restrooms.

The SuperNationals also regularly has an outstanding car show, swap meet, and vendor midway. So, if you like your Mustang events two at a time, the SuperNationals takes place June 8-11 at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio. We’ll see you there.
