Mickey Thompson Fans Flames of a Mustang Rivalry

Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels has signed on as sponsor of an exclusive Mustang drag race showdown, in addition to its continued support of the National Mustang Racers Association.

The NMRA Cobra Terminator/GT500 Shootout class runs at two of the largest NMRA events on the schedule: the NMRA Spring Break Shootout season opener, set for Feb. 28-March 3 at Bradenton Motorsports Park in Bradenton, Florida; and the NMRA All-Ford World Finals Sept. 26-29 at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

“The Mickey Thompson Cobra Terminator/GT500 Shootout features some of the baddest Ford factory-produced street cars on the planet battling heads-up for national bragging rights,” said Steve Wolcott, NMRA CEO and co-founder. “There has always been a rivalry between the supercharged Cobra segment and the GT500 community, and Mickey Thompson is helping to fan the flames with prize money and bonus tires up for grabs for the winner. Fans can witness this insane battle at the Spring Break Shootout and World Finals events courtesy of Mickey Thompson.”

Mickey Thompson is posting racer contingencies on Mickey Thompson tires (all four) in all NMRA championship classes and will also continue to offer onsite trackside support at most events, as well as contingency awards to drivers competing in Pro, Sportsman and various special event classes.

The NMRA Keystone Automotive Ford Nationals is the top all-Ford motorsports show in the U.S., attracting the most racers, fans, sponsors and contingency, according to officials. Each NMRA event features awesome heads-up Ford drag racing, an all-Ford car show, a giant manufacturers’ midway, burnout contest and true street and bracket racing.
