The NMRA & NMCA are coming to the Auto Club Speedway! July 8-10


For the first time ever the NMRA & NMCA will produce a West Coast event that showcases what our series have to offer. This event will feature West Coast race cars and classes that will follow 2011 PSCA class rules.

Because of recent noise restrictions imposed upon the track, NMRA/NMCA will not be able to run Pro Street and Outlaw 10.5, classes previously planned, however the rest of the classes can all run as long as all competitors have mufflers on their vehicles for the entirety of the event. Every car that enters into the event will be required to have mufflers or collector mufflers (inserts are not acceptable) to pass NMRA/NMCA tech. This is a zero-tolerance policy that will be in effect. If your car exceeds the max decibel reading (under 105DB at 50ft) you will be shutoff and not be able to compete.

The NMCA & NMRA will converge for the Inaugural JE Pistons NMRA/NMCA West Coast Shootout, presented by Lucas Oil, at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA. The NMCA Flowmaster Muscle Car Nationals and the NMRA Keystone Automotive Ford Nationals will showcase all the cars and all the stars from the West Coast street legal drag racing scene and show these racers what NMRA & NMCA have to offer! There will be two separate car shows, an autocross, a special Racers Against Street Racing True Street Challenge, a massive vendor midway, and let’s not forget the “Legendary Burnout Contest”. So don’t miss your chance to experience what will prove to be one of the biggest muscle car events of the season.

Drag Race Your Street Car in an Entry Level Class

Have you ever wanted to drag race? Imagine racing your street car on one of the best drag strips in the USA! NMCA and NMRA have a whole bunch of entry level classes designed just for you. True Street is a class where all street cars (licensed, tagged, insured, registered, and able to make a 30-mile cruise) made 3 back-to-back passes with the closest 3-pass averages to 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15-seconds each win $100 and a bonus prize. The king of True Street will be the overall fastest average, will win $250 plus VIP weekend Nascar passes. Classes also available will be Open Comp, Mustang Madness, Bracket I and Street Muscle.

Attack the Corners at the NMRA/NMCA Autocross & Hit the Binders in the Speed-Stop-Challenge!

Why try autocross? Imagine standing on the throttle, then pushing on the brakes to maximum, and then turning the steering wheel hard to make the corner. Now think about doing this in a friendly, safe, no pressure environment. This is autocross, and yes, it is fun! In years past, attending a car show meant driving to the show, finding a nice parking place, unfolding the lawn chairs and pulling out the build book. While a static car show can still be enjoyable, getting behind the wheel and pushing your favorite project car/ truck to the limit is thrilling. Hotchkis Sport Suspension is sponsoring the autocross and everyone is welcome. Pre-registration is required your ticket will also include the Baer Brake Systems Speed-Stop-Challenge. For Autocross information call 866-942-3603. Pre-registration is requested for the Autocross & Speed-Stop-Challenge. It’s free and easy to pre-register…simply click this link:

Special Items & Prizes for Autocross & Speed Stop Competitors:

Second driver is free (must have 1-day or 2-day entry ticket)
Baer 10% off MAP price coupon to each competitor
Baer free brake system (front or rear) for “most entertaining stop” in the Speed-Stop Challenge

The Baer Brake Systems Speed-Stop-Challenge combines the adrenaline rush of a drag racing style launch and then tests your depth perception and threshold braking skill 600-feet later when you must stop completely within a 20-foot wide and 40-foot deep “stop box”. The shortest elapsed time from dead stop to the car at rest completely within the stop box is the winner. Accelerate from the start as far as your judgment tells you that you can go and still bring your car to a safe and straight stop within the stop box. Easy! Right? Line `em up and give it a try! Pre-registration is required for the Baer Speed-Stop-Challenge and your ticket will also include the Hotchkis Sport Suspension autocross. For Speed Stop Challenge information call (602) 233-1411.

    What a bunch of BS not being able to run two of the Big Crowd Pleasing Classes. Those two classes are part of the big draw for the event. From what I’ve heard there is one person causing all the problem about the noise. How about sending them away for the weekend? Also there are a lot of people that run fuel classes in NHRA that would like to be able to use a local track for testing. Unfortunately this person is going to Impact a Family Event that helps Fontana with Revenue during hard times!
