Searching for “the baddest EcoBoost Mustang or Ford on the planet,” NMRA and Keystone Automotive have teamed up with Livernois Motorsports and SVTPerformance.com to bring the first ever “EcoBoost Battle in Bowling Green,” a class exclusively designed for Ford’s EcoBoost-powered vehicles.
“With Ford EcoBoost engines showing their prowess in professional endurance racing, and the performance aftermarket expanding their product offerings, it’s time for Ford’s most popular engine platform to make its mark in grassroots drag racing,” stated a recent press release.
The EcoBoost Battle will be staged at the 17th Annual Nitto Tire NMRA All-Ford World Finals at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky, the weekend of October 1-4, 2015.
EcoBoost Battle is open to all EcoBoost-powered vehicles including Fiesta ST, Focus ST, Taurus, Explorer, F-150, Mustang, and all others. Many aftermarket modifications, are permitted and vehicles must meet all NHRA safety regulations.
The class will race heads-up on a 0.400 tree (Sportsman ladder). Top finishers will receive cash prizes. Additionally, Livernois Motorsports will award special bonus prizes to the fastest vehicles in each category: Mustang, F-series truck/SUV, Focus and Taurus.
