Nitto Tire Spikes the Purse in NMRA QA1 True Street for the New NT555RII Drag Radials

Posted By: Mike Galimi
Nitto Tire recently released the all-new NT555RII drag radial, which has become the Official Tire of QA1 True Street for 2020. Showing their commitment to NMRA enthusiasts they've added a generous bonus program for True Street racers. Once the Holley NMRA Ford Nationals events return to action in late-May the winners of the 9-second, 10-second, 11-second, 12-second, 13-second, 14-second, and 15-second time zones will walk away with $1,000 each if they accomplish the task on a set of Nitto NT555RII tires! Yep, the only requirement is to rock a pair of these new Nitto drag radials, which will be verified by NMRA race officials. The Nitto NT555RII drag radial was released as a better design to its popular and successful drag radial program. The NT555RII exceeds dry performance, wet traction, comfort, and quietness over the NT05R while still maintaining a 100 UTQG treadwear rating. Nitto engineers accomplished this task through a drag race compound, reconfigured sidewall, and tread design. Harry Kong, Manager, Brand Publishing, at Nitto Tire U.S.A., said The NT555RII is a D.O.T.-compliant competition drag radial designed with additional flexibility for the weekend drag racer. The NT555RII was released April 1st with eleven sizes available immediately and dozens more coming by summer. Check for sizes and authorized dealers near you. Nitto Tire has been a staunch supporter of NMRA and its enthusiast community for over 20 years. Their generous bonus program for the QA1 True Street field shows that commitment and excitement, said Rollie Miller, General Manager and National Event Director of the Holley NMRA Ford Nationals series. The Holley NMRA Ford Nationals fires up next month at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway (Madison, IL) the weekend of May 28-31 for the Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center NMRA/NMCA Power Festival presented by HPJ Performance.
