Stick Shift Shootout Winner - Jeff SmithFinals Party and Shootout at 2016 NMRA World Finals

Mustang 360 / Michael Johnson / September 9, 2016

There are a few things we’ve become accustomed to while attending the NMRA World Finals at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The beautiful weather, the Hobby Lobby gatherings, the Big John burger at Double Dogs, and the great racing the event brings with it.

For the 2016 event, you can add TREMEC’s Stick Shift Shootout, and racer appreciation party to that long list of shenanigans. Most famous from being held at the NMRA Spring Break Shootout at Bradenton, the Stick Shift Shootout will take the 2 quickest True Street racers with a stick and pair them in a heads-up battle. The winner receives a brand new Tremec transmission of their choice.

In addition to the top 2 Stick Shift competitors, the top 8 stick shift cars will receive special plaques in recognition of their accomplishment. The QA1 True Street class will do battle Saturday October 1st, and there’s always a ton of competitors at Beech Bend for the World Finals.

“So, when’s the party,” you’re asking? Good question. TREMEC will also host a Racer Appreciation Party after True Street’s 3 runs on Saturday night. The party is open to all True Street racers, as well as your family and crews. TREMEC will have pizza, drinks for both kids and adults, and hospitality for all.

The NMRA World Finals is always a special race with the event’s usual points’ implications, championship crowning in all classes, Saturday night’s grudge race, and Mike Murillo taking on BoostedGT (Chris Hamilton) in heads-up action. The NMRA World Finals is one race you need to attend, and it takes place September 29th-October 2nd. We’ll see you there!
