Want to know who has the fastest modern 5.0L Mustang on the planet? Granatelli Motor Sports does too, and that’s why the company is sponsoring the 2011-2014 5.0L Mustang Shootout, where the baddest tuners in the U.S. will bring out their supercharged, turbocharged, and nitrous assisted Mustangs in hopes of securing the title of “world’s fastest 5.0.”

McLeod Racing has announced a Killer Clutch Shootout, a special race within a race for the fastest manually-shifted True Street competitors. The top eight stick-shifted cars in Saturday’s Tremec True Street class, presented by Muscle Mustangs, will each receive a product certificate and custom plaque from McLeod Racing. The fastest 2 stick shift racers will compete heads-up on Sunday in a winner-take-all match race for a $1,000 McLeod Racing product certificate ($500 for the runner-up) and the title of Stick Shift King of Ohio!

Royal Purple has stepped up to sponsor the Muscle Mustangs All-Female Shootout and add it to their Royal Purple Ladies program, which recognizes and supports women racers all over the U.S. NMRA female competitors will first race in their own ladies-only True Street class on Saturday (must meet all TS rules) with their own cash prizes and awards. On Sunday the eight quickest racers from Saturday’s True Street competition will compete heads-up in the All-Female Shootout for cash, Royal Purple product, awards, and the coveted title of All-Female Shootout champion and major magazine coverage in Muscle Mustangs! All racers not eligible for the All-Female Shootout will receive a free entry into Sunday’s Bracket Showdown.

The NMRA Keystone Automotive Ford Nationals is the #1 all-Ford Motorsport show in the U.S. featuring heads-up Ford drag racing, huge nostalgia & late-model Ford car shows, large manufacturers midways & swap meetings, tire smokin' burnout contests, 300+ mph jet cars, and much more.
