“The NMRA and NMCA offer grassroots drag racing at its finest,” said Jason Moulton, senior motorsports manager, Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels. “We are happy to serve as a Major Sponsor of the events and showcase our drag racing tires to these dedicated, talented racers.”

The NMRA Ford Nationals and NMCA Muscle Car Nationals host race weekends at tracks across the country, offering various classes and categories of drag racing, plus show-n-shine competitions, midway and swap meets, and other attractions for drivers and fans.

The Mickey Thompson Tires Grudge Test & Tune is designed for those looking to run at certain NMRA events but don’t necessarily fit into one of the heads-up or index categories. Vehicles must be a Ford Motor Company body and powered by a Ford-based powerplant. It’s that simple!

The first Grudge Test & Tune event is the Spring Break Shootout, March 4-6 at Bradenton Motorsports Park in Bradenton, Florida. The category makes its second appearance during the Ford Performance Nationals June 9-12 at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio. The NMRA World Finals Sept. 29-Oct. 2 at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky, is the final host of the Grudge Test & Tune.

“We are happy to bring Grudge Test & Tune back in 2022 due to the increased demand from our customers. This a fun way to get involved as there is no pressure to race against anyone if you don’t want to, or you can line-up a bunch of grudge races against your buddies or rivals,” said Rollie Miller, national event director and general manager of the NMRA Ford Nationals. “Our goal is to get as many enthusiasts involved in NMRA as possible and this is one more opportunity to do so.”
