NMRA Adds All-Female Category

Apr 21, 2021

The Holley NMRA Ford Nationals has added an all-female True Street category to the upcoming Ohio event. Presented by Baer Brake Systems, All-Female True Street will take place during the NMRA Ford Performance Nationals at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio on June 10-13.

The All-Female True Street class follows the same format as the QA1 True Street category with its 30-mile drive and three consecutive runs down the quarter-mile. NMRA officials will rank the competitors based on ET rewarding the Overall Winner, Overall Runner-Up and the quickest average times in the 9-second, 10-second, 11-second, 12-second, 13-second, 14-second and 15-second zones. The All-Female True Street category is open to any Mustang or Ford, car or truck, whether it’s owned by the competitor or no.

“We ran an All-Female Shootout from 2012 through 2016 and we’re thrilled to bring it back under the QA1 True Street brand of drag racing in 2021. It gives women racers of all levels a chance to have fun in NMRA with the True Street awards format,” said Steve Wolcott, founder and CEO of the Holley NMRA Ford Nationals. “The Bader family and its Summit Motorsport Park staff offer the highest level of customer service in drag racing and we’re excited to add the All-Female True Street to this stop on the NMRA tour.”

All True Street rules are in effect, which requires DOT tires, a basic set of limitations to prevent full-on racecars from sneaking in and all vehicles must be registered and insured.
