TREMEC® Stick Shift Shootout & Racer Appreciation Party Announced
Do you think your manually shifted Ford-powered street machine is one of the quickest in the country? Well, you won’t want to miss this! Long-time NMRA True Street sponsor, TREMEC, in part with presenting sponsor Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords magazine, has announced that they will hold the first-ever “Stick Shift ShootoutTM” as part of this year’s 19th Annual NMRA Nitto Spring Break Shootout—March 7-10, 2013 in Bradenton, Florida!
The staging lanes at Bradenton Motorsports Park will be bursting at the seams as over 100 entrants will battle for top True Street honors, with the fastest 8 stick cars receiving a special shootout plaque to recognize their prowess. From there things will heat up as the quickest two manual-equipped vehicles will have an all-out slugfest with a ‘winner takes all’ best 2-out-of-3 heads-up finale! The winner will be highlighted in a special event feature by Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords, and go home with a brand new TREMEC Magnum XL 6-speed transmission system valued at $3,500! The system fits all S197 Mustangs, easily handles up to 700 lb-ft of torque, and even comes with an SFI-certified bellhousing!
Additionally, to ensure that the rest of the TREMEC True Street field doesn’t get left out of the fun, TREMEC has also announced a Racer Appreciation Party that will take place before the True Street awards ceremony. Open to all True Street racers, along with their families and crew, the gathering will feature plenty hot food, cold drinks, and good cheer for all!
