Atlanta and Chicago are the venues where NMCA and NMRA racers compete for world championship points, bragging rights, and cash and prizes.
This past weekend, more than 350 racers converged on Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia for a wild weekend of petrol-burning fun in the Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals. We knew the temperature would be cranked up, so HOT ROD headed to “Hotlanta” to capture the on-track action, check out the car show, swap meet, and stroll through the extensive manufacturer’s midway.
Combined, the NMRA and NMCA organizations offer a virtually unlimited range of classes from the street-legal warriors in True Street to the raging 3,000-plus horsepower Pro Mods. There are all-motor classes, boosted machines, sealed crate engine categories, plus popular nostalgic muscle cars and modern Cobra Jets, COPO Camaros, and Dodge Challengers that compete in Holley EFI Factory Super Car.
In fact, both Chevrolet and Dodge are so serious about drag racing that each manufacturer offers programs to pay your entry fee! You heard us correctly, how would you like to enjoy a free weekend of NMCA racing with your LS or modern-LT powered Camaro, Corvette, Firebird, GTO, Cadillac, truck, or swap vehicle? Chevrolet Performance will comp your entry (car and driver—up to a $175 value) so you can enjoy the incredible performance of your modern muscle car in a fun, safe, environment. Not to be left out, Dodge owners get a similar deal, as Dodge/Mopar sponsors the Hemi Shootout for any Gen III powered Challenger, Demon, Hellcat, Charger, 300, Jeep, Ram Truck, or swap vehicle.
Needless to say, we encountered a fleet of GM and Dodge runners, who battled alongside the best from NMRA and NMCA. There was also endless Mustangs, classic muscle cars and a full weekend of championship racing with all the excitement, color, and noise you’d expect from a top-tier drag race.
This has to be a great event to check out. So many fast cars!
