All the cars and all the stars of NMRA Ford drag racing will return once again to famed Maryland International Raceway for the ultimate Blue Oval slugfest! Last year's event was huge, and this year's NMRA event promises to be even bigger as word spread around the Ford drag racing world that MIR's facility is among the best in the U.S. and the racing surface is perfect for setting national records. The addition of the SVT 20th Anniversary Shootout to this year's NMRA Maryland event will have the facility bursting at the seams as hundreds of new race & show participants competing in special SVT-only race and car show classes. This is a "must attend" event for any Ford fanatic where they will see the best in NMRA and Ford motorsports!

This event will also bring out each of the NMRA's premier heads-up classes - the epitome of Ford drag racing. Many of the NMRA's regulars live within close proximity to Maryland International Raceway and use it for testing, so they may have a leg up on the competition due to their familiarity with the facility - but don't let that fool you! Each racer coming from afar will be looking to take their shot for all the glory on the MIR 1320 in their respective classes and take down those local stars, so get your tickets early for this one - it's sure to be a classic.

Special SVT 20th Anniversary Shootout
2013 is SVT's 20th anniversary and what better way for NMRA to celebrate than a shootout! Come see the best in SVT drag racing competing in SVT-only classes, or taking on the pros like Johnny Lightning in his 9-second hauler! From the VMP Superchargers Terminator / GT500 Shootout class to two separate SVT True Street categories…the SVT 20th Anniversary Shootout will bring together awesome SVT drag racers & auto show participants from mild to wild, and from all over the U.S. for serious bragging rights. All the players are showing up for this one & you should too! Special thanks to SVT, Ford Racing, Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords, 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords, SVTPerformance.com, SVT Owners Association, SVT Mustang Club, Mid-Atlantic Cobra Association, National Lightning Owners Club, Johnny Lightning Performance, LightningRodder.com, and LightningGarage.com for your support!

Have a quick street Mustang? Want to prove it on the track?

Next hit the track for 3 back-to-back passes and then watch as NMRA presents cash and awards to the overall fastest, runner-up and to each racer with the closest average to 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15 seconds!

There's more than just racing action!
In addition to all of the action that will take place on the quarter-mile, the NMRA also has the awesome UPR Products All-Ford Car Show, which features over fifty different awards that are presented each day of the show. With the number of Ford fans and car enthusiasts in the Maryland area, we're expecting to see a huge turnout for the car show. What's your flavor? Is it a '66 Fairlane 500 hardtop? Or maybe a '79 Pace Car Mustang? No matter what type of Ford you own, there's a place for it in the All-Ford Car show. The Maryland International Raceway stop on the NMRA tour will also have plenty of space allocated for the traditional NMRA Manufacturer's Midway, which brings in a huge group of vendors and their wares. You'll have the opportunity to rub elbows with representatives from many of the major manufacturers to learn about their products - a chance you may not get for the rest of the season! This NMRA event will have a little bit of everything, from the intense racing action to the car show and even a jet car shooting for 300+ mph on the MIR 1320 - get your tickets now!
