Madison, Illinois

A place where East meets West, Gateway Motorsports Park has a long tradition in Ford drag racing going back well over a decade, and now the NMRA Gateway Rumble continues that tradition. The NMRA Gateway Rumble marks the third stop on the NMRA Drag Racing Series tour and will showcase all of the championship heads-up and index categories as they battle for points and the coveted Victor trophies. The event also plays host to the Gateway Rumble class, which is a Spring Break Shootout-style eliminator pitting the quickest True Street competitors against each other for additional prizes and bragging rights.

On Sunday, the event plays host to a special Gateway Rumble, which takes the quickest 16 cars from Saturday’s True Street competition and pouts them into a heads-up competition for even more cash, prizes and magazine coverage. To be eligible for the Gateway Rumble, competitors must meet True Street rules and make all three passes on Saturday. The top 16 cars will be placed on a Sportsman ladder and will race with a 4/10 pro tree.
