The NMRA and NMCA are pleased to announce the inaugural Sealed Stock All-Star Showdown, a special race between select Coyote Stock and Chevrolet Performance Stock competitors at the Commerce, Georgia event at Atlanta Dragway the weekend of April 7-10, 2016. Billed as the NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals, it’s one of only two races where fans can witness the spectacle of both NMRA and NMCA racing the same weekend.
The top 3 in points from 2015 and the first event of 2016 combined, along with the one wildcard racer at the event whose name is drawn out of a hat (at drivers meeting before qualifying round #1), will make up each team for the Sealed Stock All-Star Showdown. Racers will compete for major bragging rights, $1,000 cash, a Manufacturers Cup, and a trip to the Aerospace Components Winners Circle.
First Round Will Be Paired As: NMRA #1 vs. NMCA #4; NMRA #2 vs. NMCA #3; NMRA #3 vs. NMCA #2; NMRA #4 vs. NMCA #1. Lane choice will be decided by a coin flip in the staging lanes with the higher seed in each pair calling it. Winner gets lane choice.
Second Round Will Be Paired As: The second round will be put on an NHRA pro ladder from the first round with lane choice going to the fastest speed in round one for each pair.
Final Round: The two winners from round two will race for the Sealed Stock Manufactures Cup and $1,000 cash. Lane choice will be determined by the faster speed in round 2.
