Grudge Night Coming to Three NMRA Events this Year

Posted By: Scott Sparrow
The NMRA Competition Department is proud to announce the addition of an after-hours Grudge Night to NMRA Keystone Automotive Ford Nationals events in Florida, Ohio and Kentucky. Celebrities from some of the hottest reality shows on Discovery Channel and MavTV will participate in each Grudge Night after spending time on the midway with fans and racers, shooting photos and signing autographs. It's the perfect add-on to a weekend of NMRA championship drag racing. After-hours NMRA Grudge Nights & Celebrities: MARCH 5 Bradenton Motorsports Park-Bradenton, FL 22nd Annual Nitto Tire NMRA Spring Break Shootout presented by Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords magazine Chris BoostedGT Hamilton from Discovery's Street Outlaws Mike Murillo, Host of MavTV's House of Grudge   JUNE 11 National Trail Raceway-Hebron, OH 13th Annual NMRA Ford SuperNationals Mike Murillo, Host of MavTV's House of Grudge Bobby Ducote from Discovery's Street Outlaws: New Orleans   OCTOBER 1 Beech Bend Raceway Park-Bowling Green, KY 18th Annual Nitto Tire NMRA All-Ford World Finals Chris BoostedGT Hamilton from Discovery's Street Outlaws Mike Murillo, Host of MavTV's House of Grudge The after-hours Grudge Nights will be held at the conclusion of the regularly scheduled NMRA competitions. Tentatively scheduled at each event with no time time trials at 5:30pm and grudge racing at 7:00pm, the grudge night races are open to any Ford-bodied vehicles (any powerplant permitted). The open track format allows competitors to set up grudge runs that night, so racers can show up and call out their friends. Big money, small money, or just pride will be the reward for the one who ignites the win light! All grudge races feature no time, no scoreboards and no time slips only the win light at the end of the track will determine the winner of each heads-up race. Every competition will be contested using the .400 Pro Tree with red light starts counting as an immediate and official disqualification. All other grudge night rules apply such as the First or Worst rule. With NMRA's official starter, TJ El Prepe Bailey, providing his outstanding track prep skills, racers will have excellent racing conditions and fans will be treated to an exciting all-Ford Grudge Night!
