Micro Strategies All-Ford Stock/Super Stock Coming to Maple Grove NMRA May 4-7
If you’re a fan of Ford drag racing don’t miss the upcoming 17th Annual NMRA Ford Motorsport Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway, May 4-7. The Motorsport Nats has long been a hotbed for wild quarter-mile racing and this year it will feature the Micro Strategies Ford Stock/Super Stock Combo Showdown with a $2,000 purse.
The Micro Strategies Stock/Super Stock Combo is open to any and IHRA or NHRA Ford Stock or Super Stock car, and as an added bonus, racers get two chances to win. Racers can compete in the S/SS on Saturday, and your tech card includes a free entry into the Bracket class of your choice on Sunday. NMRA is also offering a “Money Shot” which awards $200 to the first driver who nails a perfect light and dead-on run in S/SS eliminations.
Last year’s event brought out everything from wild 8-second Cobra Jets to the hard-running 5.0 Fox-body Mustangs. If you’ve got a favorite, you’re sure to find it at the NMRA Ford Motorsport Nationals. Along with the Stock and Super Stock action, you’ll get to see all the great NMRA Outlaw, True Street, Renegade and other hard-hitting muscle Fords. This 6-second, 200 mph freak show is something you have to see to believe. Enthusiasts will also see the gear-jamming Coyote Stockers, Factory Stockers and some of the tightest Open Comp racing around.
Gates open on Thursday for parking, registration and tech and racers get three qualifying runs Friday, one more Saturday morning and eliminations are scheduled for noon.
NMRA offers a wide range of classes, including heads-up and bracket action, along with a huge car show, manufacturer’s midway and a swap meet to sell or buy. For more information, contact Maple Grove Raceway (610-856-9200) or NMRA at 866-694-3475.
