2011 Schedule Changes to Note:
The Nitto Tire NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals combined event, which was formerly held at zMAX Dragway in NC, will move to Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, GA, the weekend of April 14-17, 2011. Atlanta Dragway is better suited for the All-Star Nationals where NMRA and NMCA can capitalize on Atlanta’s strong racer and fan base.
Because of a move by NHRA with its national event schedule, the Nitto Tire NMRA/NMCA Super Bowl of Street Legal Drag Racing at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, IL, will be moving a few weeks earlier to the weekend of June 23-26, 2011. Cooler June weather will translate into awesome runs as NMRA takes on NMCA for the Super Bowl of Street Legal Drag Racing title!
California fans get ready! The NMRA and NMCA will be hosting a special West Coast Shootout at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA, the weekend of July 8-10, 2011. Like the NMRA/NMCA Texas event in November, the West Coast Shootout will be the largest gathering of muscle cars in the Golden State. This non-points, limited classes event will showcase what the NMRA and NMCA have to offer to Pacific-are drag racers.
The NMRA Ford Nationals 2-day event at Milan Dragway in Milan, MI, will be moving off the June NASCAR race to the weekend of July 22-23, 2011. This Friday and Saturday evening event brings all the cars and all the stars of NMRA drag racing to the Motor City.
