The Holley NMRA Ford Nationals and NMCA Muscle Car Nationals are returning to US 131 Motorsports Park (Martin, MI) July 22-25, 2021 under a new three year contract with Michigan’s fastest race track. It will be a dual event and is dubbed the NMRA/NMCA Power Festival.
“Jason Peterson and his US 131 Motorsports Park were gracious enough to host our displaced All-American Nationals in 2020 earlier this year. Once we got to know him and his staff, we knew we would be returning to the top notch facility,” said Rollie Miller, General Manager and National Event Director at NMRA/NMCA sanctioning bodies. “There is great demand for the NMRA and NMCA programs in that area as evident by the record breaking car count we experienced this past summer. Once we open the gates to fans under no restrictions, we expect this stop to be one of the best on tour.”
Jason Peterson is equally as excited, “We were very pleased with our first event together and look forward to growing the NMRA/NMCA Power Festival. The NMRA/NMCA racers and staff are professional and run a great program, which fits in nicely at US 131 Motorsports Park.”
The US 131 Motorsports Park facility played host to nearly 700 cars in competition in 2020, the largest in ProMedia Events and Publishing history, with the NMRA/NMCA All-American Nationals. The combination event featured NMRA and NMCA as well as the Chevrolet Performance COPO Camaro Shootout, Ford Performance Cobra Jet Showdown, F.A.S.T. competition, and other specialty shootouts. The two factory drag racing specialty categories are heading back to Ohio with the NMCA All-American Nationals but the NMRA/NMCA are working on new features to replace them at next year’s Power Festival.
The Holley NMRA Ford Nationals returns to a six-event schedule and it begins March 4-7, 2021 with the Spring Break Shootout at Bradenton Motorsports Park (Bradenton, FL). The Ford festival drives north of Atlanta to Atlanta Dragway for the NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals April 8-11, 2021. The month of May will host the NMRA/NMCA Super Bowl of Street-Legal Drag Racing at World Wide Technology Raceway, which goes down May 13-16, 2021. Summit Motorsports Park returns to the NMRA schedule June 10-13, 2021. For the second year in a row the NMRA will rocket down the US 131 Motorsports Park track July 22-25, 2021 as part of the NMRA/NMCA Power Festival. The sixth and final stop on tour will be the NMRA World Finals + Holley Intergalactic Ford Festival.
