The annual TREMEC Stick Shift Shootout rages back into action during the Nitto Tire NMRA Spring Break Shootout February 27 – March 1, 2020 at Bradenton Motorsports Park in Bradenton, Florida. And don’t forget, TREMEC is also hosting the QA1 True Street Racer Appreciation Happy Hour during the award’s ceremony on Saturday after the category’s completion. The TREMEC Happy Hour is open to all QA1 True Street racers, friends, and family.
In celebration of gear-jammin’ fun, the TREMEC Stick Shift Shootout brings together the Quick 8 elimination on Sunday. NMRA officials will select the quickest 8 Stick Shift racers from the QA1 True Street field for the special eliminator. The racer names will be announced during the TREMEC Happy Hour. Each entry in the shootout will receive custom TREMEC awards just for making the show. As the eight cars get whittled down to two, the winner will walk away with a McLeod Racing RXT Twin-Disc clutch with flywheel (approx. $1,300 value), while the runner-up will receive a $500 McLeod Racing product certificate.
The Stick Shift Shootout rules are simple—Street-type manual transmissions only and the transmission can include race-oriented modifications such as ‘face-plated’ or ‘pro-shifted’ gears. It must be hand operated via a single shift handle. Transmissions with multiple levers or air/electronic/hydraulic actuation are not permitted. The Quick 8 cars will be randomly paired in the lanes prior to each round and the racers will compete with a staggered start based on their True Street average. There will be NO breakout on the top-end, allowing racers to stay wide-open and not hold back at the finish line.
The NMRA Ford Nationals launches its 2020 championship season February 27 – March 1 with the Nitto Tire NMRA Spring Break Shootout at Bradenton Motorsports Park. For more information and Advance Tickets—Spectators Save 20%—visit www.NMRAdigital.com/FL
