Breaking News—Holley NMRA Ford Nationals Signs 5-Year Contract with Bradenton Motorsports Park

The Holley NMRA Ford Nationals is proud to announce it has signed a 5-year deal with Bradenton Motorsports Park to host the world-famous Nitto Tire Spring Break Shootout through the 2025 racing season.


“The Spring Break Shootout is synonymous with the Ford Mustang movement as it’s been a 27-year tradition to kickoff the Holley NMRA Ford Nationals championship in Bradenton, Florida. We are thrilled to sign this 5-year deal with Victor Alvarez and continue bringing our event to Bradenton Motorsports Park,” commented Rollie Miller, General Manager and National Event Director at the Holley NMRA Ford Nationals. “His enthusiasm for this type of drag racing and his continued improvements to the facility make it one of the most popular stops on the tour.”

It has been two years since Alvarez purchased the famed drag strip on the west coast of Florida, quickly forging a great relationship with the largest street-legal drag racing series. He stated, “The NMRA event is one of our big events of the year and gives Ford fans a destination in a warm climate. We are excited to keep the Spring Break Shootout party going for another five years.”

The 2020 Nitto Tire Spring Break Shootout was one of the largest kick-off events in his storied history with racers coming from over 30 states and Canada. It is home to the largest QA1 True Street competition that includes a special heads-up eliminator that carries the same name as the event title, the Spring Break Shootout. It also features a massive manufacturer’s midway, all-Ford UPR Products Car Show, and celebrity appearances. The 2021 season opener is slated for March 4-7 as it leads the six-race Holley NMRA Ford Nationals into the new decade.
