The second stop on the NMRA tour this season lands in the great state of Georgia at Atlanta Dragway in a combination NMRA/ NMCA race, the 6th Annual Nitto Tire All Star Nationals, held over the weekend of April 10-13, 2014. This event is only one of two races where you can witness awesome NMRA and NMCA action the same weekend! With its close proximity to many of the South's premier racers, Atlanta Dragway pulls in the local competitors along with the NMRA's and NMCA's regulars, making it one of the most exciting stops on the tour.

The Atlanta Dragway racing surface has been home to many record-setting passes over the years. With eleven classes on tap featuring everything from the high-6-second tire-frying machines of Street Outlaw to classes like Open Comp, there's a little bit of something for everyone. As this event takes place in mid-April, many of the northern racers are still itching to get out of the cold, and the warm climate in Georgia coupled with the vibrant local area full of restaurants and shopping gets everyone revved up for the event in advance. Make sure to have your tickets ahead of time as this event is sure to please!

I want to race - how do I do it?
The NMRA offers many different classes for all different levels of racer. From the entry-level TREMEC True Street class all the way up to the aforementioned Street Outlaw class - if you've got a Ford-powered, Ford-bodied car, there's a class for you to fit in. The True Street class draws the largest participation, with vehicles ranging from the fifteen-second zone all the way down to eight-second heavy hitters - last year's True Street class was won by Louisiana's Darin Watkins, who competed in the combined NMRA/NMCA event with his '81 Chevy truck and clicked off an incredible 8.47 average over his three passes after the 30-mile cruise through the Georgia countryside.
