Ladies, start your engines! The NMRA Keystone Automotive Ford Nationals series announced that they have teamed up with Royal Purple to bring the Muscle Mustangs All-Female Shootout at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio! The Shootout will be held on the weekend of June 14 – 16th, 2013 giving ample time to get wrenching on that Mustang and request the necessary days off of work. You’re not going to want to miss this! With females taking on the scene by storm, it was only a matter of time before an all-female drag racing event presented itself.

"We are thrilled to be presenting sponsor of our first event on behalf of the Royal Purple Ladies initiative that was launched last fall,” said Marlena Solomon, Royal Purple Communications Specialist.

“We hope to continue to celebrate and support the women who make a difference in the automotive industry and educate the ladies in our community.

We are looking forward to some great competition on the track at the All-Female Shootout.”

The first race consists of the TREMEC True Street class, presented by Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords magazine, on that Saturday. All cars must meet the TS rules and will be awarded cash, prizes, and awards. First place winner receives $250 cash and a 6-foot trophy. The runner-up will receive $100 cash and a unique plaque while the same goes for each winner of 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 & 15-second averages.

The next day will feature eight of the quickest ladies from Saturday during the True Street competition and will race heads up on a 4/10 pro tree for cash, Royal Purple products, awards, and bragging rights as the All-Female shootout champion! The racers who are ineligible will receive free entry into Sunday’s NMRA event.

Sunday’s prizes consist of $1,500 cash for the winner, plus contingency, acrylic award, and a Royal Purple Complete Fluid Package. The runner-up receives $750 cash, contingency, plaque, as well as a Royal Purple Complete Fluid Package. Semi Finalists receive $300 cash each with a case of the Royal Purple Motor Oil of choice, and Quarter Finalists will receive $100 cash and a case of Royal Purple Motor Oil of their choice.

McLeod Racing has stepped in and offered to throw down a $1,000 gift certificate to the ultimate winner of the All-Female Shootout if the winning car was sporting a McLeod clutch.
