  • Live From NMCA/NMRA "Mustangs Clogging the Pits Nationals" in Joliet

    Also known as the Super Bowl

    This is the official thread for all posts before, during and after this race.

    News, Qualifying sheets, Ladders, pitting information, or anything else.

    I ask all who are there to add info they might have.

    So who all is going? I'm fixin to start loading up and will pull put at about 2pm to get under traffic, and spend night in the Walmart parking lot in Atlanta, Texas - about five hours up the road. I'll load up with groceries, beer, water and other essentials there.

    The 13th Annual Nitto Tire NMRA/NMCA Super Bowl of Street Legal Drag Racing event that is held at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Illinois is the fourth stop on the 2018 tour. As the swing event in the points chase, this means that the racers in each class are looking to position themselves well for a second-half charge to the top of the points standings. Couple that with the fact that the Super Bowl event is always chock-full of drama and record-setting passes and also has the NMRA contingent on the property, and you have one incredible event.
