Bradenton’s Spring Break Shootout Opens 2014 NMRA Season
It’s almost that time of year again for the NMRA Spring Break Shootout to open the 2014 drag racing season. Held in Bradenton, Florida, every year, northerners feel free to escape frigid temps for the warm Florida sunshine, drag racing, babes, parties, and a whole lot of blue oval shenanigans. Presented by Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords, the Spring Break Shootout will take place at Bradenton Motorsports Park on March 6-9, 2014.
Kicking off at our Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords headquarters for an open house on Thursday, March 6, enjoy a free parts raffle, free food and drinks, awesome cars, music, and a tour of the facility. Check out our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/mmffmag as the event draws closer.
On Friday March 7, the NMRA season kicks off right at Bradenton’s newly-paved quarter-mile followed by the traditional Hooters kick-off party with a car show, burnouts, and, of course, Hooters girls. NMRA racers and staff as well as the Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords and 5.0 Mustang & Super Ford editors will be walking around and checking out the scene. Ford owners take over the plaza parking lot and smoke from the famous Hooters Burnout Contest fills the air.
It is back to Bradenton Motorsports Park on Saturday and Sunday for more fun in the sun with packed grand stands as Ford racers haul down the track. Expect insanely fast Street Outlaws to wheelie-performing Renegades taking the track by storm in hopes to win the season opener. On Saturday, more than a hundred True Street racers compete, and on Sunday the stakes are high with the Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords Spring Break Shootout class brought to you by Blow-By Racing.
Another special event comes in the form of the Cobra Jet Showdown, presented by Jacky Jones Ford and Ford Racing, as these factory monsters take on the drag strip with 8- and 9-second times.
UPR will host an All-Ford car show with hundreds of cars in many different colors and generations gleam under the Florida sun. Magazine editors will be walking the show looking for future feature and cover cars. The NMRA Spring Break Shootout also includes one of the largest all-Ford midways and swap meets, so stop by the ATM on your way in to get some great deals on those parts you’ve been looking for.
That’s not all, folks, the world famous NMRA burnout contest will also take place as contestants go as far as destroying engines and blowing tires to get the crowd seriously amped up.
