Santa Ana, CA (January 16, 2014) - SVT was born to build high-performance Ford vehicles and the NMRA Keystone Automotive Ford Nationals will be celebrating their passion with the 2nd Annual SVT Shootout at Maryland International Raceway in Mechanicsville, MD the weekend of May 2-4, 2014. It's only fitting that the #1 all-Ford motorsports show in the U.S. plays host annually to this speed-infused celebration. SVT Shootout participants will join NMRA's community of racers and car show enthusiasts for one of the largest and baddest all-Ford events of the year.
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 U.S. for a winner take all format at this special SVT event. Mingle with the hottest tuners and car builders for drag-strip fun and a Shootout to decide which model is better-Terminator or Shelby GT500. Watch the internet forums come alive for a real-world slug fest. Each Terminator/GT500 Shootout participant will also receive a free entry into Saturday's SVT True Street class (must fit True Street rules) for even more chances to win.
The SVT Lightning truck community is one of the most exciting SVT brands as evident by the sheer number of trucks still being modified and turned into drag strip haulers. If you are a Lightning enthusiast then you won't want to miss this event. The biggest Lightning shops, including Johnny Lightning Performance, will be hitting the strip with 8-second performances. Lightning racers are invited to join the popular Truck & Lightning category to do battle against other Lightnings for cash and prizes.
NMRA True Street, presented by Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords, is always one of the largest classes run on Saturday at each NMRA event. There will be a separate SVT True Street class, with its own purses and prizes... exclusively for SVT racers! SVT True Street racers will make three consecutive passes down the quarter-mile and $250 plus a six-foot trophy will be awarded to the overall fastest, and $100 plus a custom plaque will be awarded to each racer with the closest average to 9-, 10-, 11-, 12-, 13-, 14-, and 15-seconds! SVT True Street racers will receive a free entry into Sunday's NMRA bracket race.
