NMCA Muscle Car Nationals

The NMCA Muscle Car Nationals will treat racers and race fans to a weekend of hospitality and a national event-racing surface, which should make the racing tight and exciting!

You've gotta be here...Aug 22 - 24!

Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, OH hosts the next-to-last stop of the 2014 NMCA tour over the weekend of August 22 - 24, 2014.  As the home of the 8th Annual NMCA Muscle Car Nationals, featuring the Chevrolet Performance LSX Challenge and the Ford Racing Cobra Jet Showdown, Summit Motorsports Park  offers up an awesome track surface and top-notch track staff to ensure the consistency and performance of the NMCA racer's machines.  As this event is just two hours south of Detroit and in the hot bed of Ohio performance, you can expect to see some awesome machines both on the racetrack and in the car show.     

If you’re an LS fan then the Chevrolet Performance LSX Challenge Series is for you! Developed from the excitement of the LSX Shootout, and going on its third year, the LSX Challenge Series will run at four select events in 2014 and will make it's second stop here at Summit Motorsports Park during the NMCA Flowmaster Muscle Car Nationals, which means you will see the best in LS performance as well as all-domestic heads-up muscle car drag racing. The best part is there’s a class for everyone from hardcore, like Drag Radial, to LSX Rumble, a class with easy to follow index-style rules.  For a list of classes, rules and purse information, click here.  

Racing Cobra Jet Showdown Presented By Diversified Products

One of the unique things about this even is The Cobra Jet Showdown. The Cobra Jet program is huge, as Ford Racing’s engineers have spent countless hours testing, modifying, and re-testing the racing program to make sure that it’s 100% reliable for its customers. The decision to hold a Cobra Jet race each year was an easy one, and in 2012 featured three classes designed for the new Cobra Jet.

Can I race?
Summit Motorsports Park has one of the best racing surfaces in the country as evidenced by the performances put up each month by the racers in their awesome Heads-Up program, and you can have the opportunity to show off your skills in the driver’s seat on the track alongside the NMCA’s stars in one of the various classes designed to satisfy the entry-level racer.  The Gear Vendors True Street class has always been a racer favorite, with awards given out to the racers closest to each second increment, along with the overall quickest car and the runner-up, after their 30-mile cruise and three dragstrip passes are complete.  Want to battle it out against some of Detroit’s finest iron?  Make your way to Summit Motorsports Park for this event.

In addition, entry-level racers fit into the Open Comp, Nostalgia Muscle Car, and Late Model EFI classes, so take a look at the class rules and make your plans to come out and race with the best Ford racers in the country.  For rules information visit: www.nmcadigital.com/rules, pick a class, make sure your car fits the rules and you have the proper safety gear, and come race with the NMCA!
