guaranteed to be exciting. NMCA is bringing some of the most thrilling race teams and a giant field of heads up racecars to the track. The Ford Racing Cobra Jet Showdown, presented by Diversified Products Marketing, brings super quick late-model Ford Mustangs while the Chevrolet Performance LSX Challenge Series satisfies fans of the Bowtie with high-tech LS-powered monsters. All of this combined with a giant all-brands car show, swap meet, huge manufacturers midway and a short drive from Detroit means that this event is NOT TO BE MISSED!
The family-friendly fun begins for racers on Thursday and Friday with set-up and test & tune sessions. Spectators get the best action on Saturday, August 23 and Sunday, August 24 when the car show is in full swing, the swap meet vendors are wheeling and dealing and racers are working hard to qualify and win in the extremely competitive NMCA field. This is the second-to-last event of the year and points leaders will be pushing their machines to the limit as they race to become the overall 2014 class champion.
The 250+ mph heads up racing and car show action will be non-stop all weekend with all years/makes/models, plus a manufacturers' midway with industry representatives available to answer questions and provide how-to advice. The swap meet will have everything an enthusiast needs, from used parts to model cars, at prices that won't break the bank.
For owners of street legal American muscle cars that want to show off their skills on the drag strip, NMCA has a class just for that purpose. Gear Vendors True Street is designed for racers of all levels - from novice to expert. Entrants take a 30-mile cruise to prove the street worthiness of their car. Then, they hit the racetrack for three back-to-back passes. Prizes are handed out for the closest average ET in each time bracket. There's an NMCA class for just about everyone!
