The NMRA Keystone Automotive Ford Nationals is proud to announce the addition of the Micro Strategies All-Ford Stock/Super Stock Combo Showdown class to the 16th Annual NMRA Ford Motorsport Nationals. NMRA’s return to the northeast, which is presented by Juggernaut Power, takes place at Maple Grove Raceway, in Mohnton, Pennsylvania, the weekend of April 28 – May 1. The Micro Strategies All-Ford Stock/Super Stock Combo Showdown is open to all NHRA and IHRA Stock and Super Stock competitors, who will battle for the $4,000 purse ($2,000 to win!) and a trip to the Aerospace Components Winners Circle.
“We’ve competed in the NMRA’s Cobra Jet Showdowns over the years and we’re excited to team up with them for the All-Ford Stock/Super Combo Showdown,” said Anthony Bongiovanni, President and CEO of Micro Strategies.
The Micro Strategies All-Ford Stock/Super Stock Combo Showdown will feature the most exciting Ford and Mercury NHRA and IHRA sportsman cars in the northeast, including Fox-bodied Mustangs, classic Mustangs, Cougars and the latest Cobra Jets that ravage the quarter-mile with giant wheelies and 8-second elapsed times. The NMRA Ford Motorsport Nationals will also include the Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords All-Female Shootout, the VMP Performance Terminator/GT500 Shootout, the JPC Racing Turbo Coyote Shootout, and the bevy of ground-pounding NMRA heads-up classes, plus bracket and True Street racing, a huge manufacturers midway, UPR Products Car Show, and so much more.
Qualifying takes place on Friday and Saturday, with eliminations going down under the lights on Saturday night. In addition to the Stock/Super Stock Combo class, each racer entry also includes a tech card for any of NMRA’s Sunday bracket classes, giving racers two chances to take home a win.
“Drag racing is a high-action sport with amazing technology, and we’re pleased to attach Micro Strategies to the NMRA’s program,” said Anthony Bongiovanni. “We use drag racing to engage current and potential customers; they love the speed, power, and technology that surrounds the sport of drag racing. Our sponsorship serves as a unique, high-impact platform to showcase Micro Strategies’ multitude of business solutions, and it allows us to incorporate technology into racing our Cobra Jet Mustangs that use the most current Ford engines and electronic fuel-injection systems,” he added.
