To start the season off right, the NMRA Keystone Automotive Ford Nationals will head up the new season in the Sunshine State. And what a better place to spend Spring Break, than the beaches of Florida, not to mention the NHRA drag strip nestled between the palm trees! Once again, we'll start off the weekend, and the 2009 Season, with a crazy Pre-Race Party at the Hooters of Bradenton. Last year's NMRA Spring Ford Nationals saw over 1000 participants and almost 20,000 spectators, so you can be assured that this event will be huge. We will also be featuring the 15th Annual Muscle Mustangs Spring Break Shootout. Make your plans now for a whole weekend of NMRA Heads-Up Drag Racing, a huge All-Ford Auto Show & Shine, gigantic Swap Meet and a smoking Burnout Contest! Come down to the biggest spring break party on the east coast and help us celebrate the start of the 2009 NMRA Season!
