32nd Annual NMRA Ford Expo Brings the Best in Blue Oval Performance to Columbus, Ohio
The 32nd Annual NMRA Ford Expo, held over Labor Day weekend at National Trail Raceway, is always one of the most exciting stops on the NMRA Keystone Automotive Ford Nationals series tour. At the second-to-last race, with points battles almost at critical mass, NMRA racers had the wick turned up giving the track all it can take, and then some. And in addition to our usual racers, there was also vintage Blue Oval cars making their way down the track in the Y-Block Shootout, ’57 Ford Gathering & Shootout and special vintage bracket classes. For the fans of both old and new, this was the NMRA event of the year.

The UPR Products NMRA All-Ford Car Show at the Ford Expo was business as usual with over 250 early and late-model Mustangs & Fords showing off for the fans.
