Gear Jammin in TREMEC Stick Shift Shootout, presented by McLeod Racing at NMRA Spring Break Shootout

Posted By: Mike Galimi

Get your right arm and left leg ready as the TREMEC Stick Shift Shootout roars back into action during the Nitto Tire NMRA Spring Break Shootout February 28 - March 3, 2019 at Bradenton Motorsports Park in Bradenton, Florida.

But the gear-bang n madness doesn't stop there as the TREMEC Stick Shift Shootout brings together the Quick 8 elimination on Sunday. NMRA officials will select the quickest 8 Stick Shift racers from the QA1 True Street field for the special eliminator. Each entry in the shootout will receive custom TREMEC awards just for making the show. As the eight cars get whittled down to two, the winner will walk away with a McLeod Racing RXT Twin-Disc clutch with flywheel (approx. $1,300 value), while the runner-up will receive a $500 McLeod Racing product certificate.

The Stick Shift Shootout rules are simple Street-type manual transmissions only and the transmission can include race-oriented modifications such as face-plated or pro-shifted gears. It must be hand operated via a single shift handle. Transmissions with multiple levers or air/electronic/hydraulic actuation are not permitted.

Yandro Ulloa's TT Minion is a bit more radical in 2019 with its twin turbocharged 4.6L powerplant and has run a best of 7.85

The Quick 8 cars will be randomly paired in the lanes prior to each round and the racers will compete with a staggered start based on their True Street average. There will be NO breakout on the top-end, allowing racers to stay wide-open and not hold back at the finish line.
