Well known as "The #1 All-Ford Motorsports Show," the NMRA Keystone Automotive Ford Nationals Series includes family-friendly attractions for all types of automotive enthusiasts. Along with competitive racing on the drag strip, the NMRA offers a giant all-Ford car show on both Saturday and Sunday. Sponsored by UPR Products and supported by some of the biggest companies in the automotive aftermarket, NMRA car shows give enthusiasts the chance to show off their ride, earn one of a hundred awards handed out on both days and win raffle prizes. Editors from 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords, Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords and NMRA's own Race Pages magazine circulate the show looking for the perfect feature vehicle. And at this event, SVT vehicles have their own classes for the chance to win bragging rights as the best SVT in the US.
Owners and fans of Ford's limited-edition SVT cars and trucks will enjoy the SVT-only events during the 2nd Annual SVT Shootout, held exclusively at the Maryland location. VMP Superchargers has stepped up once again to sponsor the Terminator/GT500 Shootout class that brings together some of the quickest Cobras and GT500s in the country for a winner take all format at this special event. The SVT TREMEC True Street class includes everything - from mild to wild - as long as it's street legal. These vehicles have to prove their street worthiness in a 30-mile cruise before taking to the drag strip for three back-to-back passes. Winners get a six-foot tall trophy that would make anyone proud!TREMEC True Street, presented by Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords, is always one of the largest classes at each NMRA event. It's a fun class for all kinds of racers, no matter how much prior experience they have.
The massive manufacturers' midway and swap meet will satisfy parts shoppers and bargain hunters. With manufacturer representatives from companies like SCT Performance, Edelbrock, Nitto Tire, TREMEC Transmissions, Roush Performance and VMP Superchargers, to name a few, spectators can get the best information from the right people, all in one place.
