NMCA at Milan Dragway

When: August 24-26, 2012

Where: Milan Dragway, 10860 Plank Road Milan, Mi 48160 (at Snell Road)

Milan Dragway in Milan, Michigan, hosts the next-to-last stop of the 2012 NMCA tour over the weekend of August 24-26, 2012. As the home of the 6th Annual JE Pistons NMCA Muscle Car Nationals Featuring the Ford Racing Cobra Jet Showdown, Milan Dragway offers up an awesome track surface and top-notch track staff to ensure the consistency and performance of the NMCA racers’ machines. Last year at this event, Jamie Stanton set the elapsed time record in the Aeromotive Xtreme Street class with a 7.84 blast, while the Comp Cams Pro Stock field was separated by only .011-second during the qualifying sessions. As this event is in the backyard of the Big 3, just a few miles from Detroit, you can expect to see some awesome machines both on the racetrack and in the car show.

One of the unique things about this even is the Cobra Jet Showdown. The Cobra Jet program has been thrashed out here at Milan Dragway, as Ford Racing’s engineers have spent countless hours testing, modifying, and re-testing the racing program to make sure that it’s 100% reliable for its customers. The decision to hold a Cobra Jet race here was an easy one, and in 2011 there were 30 of the factory-built hot rods in competition in three different classes. Look for this event to grow in 2012 with a new model-year release coming on the CJ program and Ford Racing’s continued backing.

Ford Racing Cobra Jet Showdown

NMCA to Host Ford Racing Cobra Jet Showdown

When: August 26-28, 2011

Where: Milan Dragway :: Milan, Michigan

The NMCA Flowmaster Muscle Car Nationals is proud to announce the Ford Racing Cobra Jet Showdown, a special event to be run in conjunction with the 5th Annual JE Pistons NMCA Muscle Car Nationals, at Milan Dragway in Milan, Michigan, August 26-28,2011.

All 2008-2012 Cobra Jet owners are invited to participate in one of two classes with the winner of each competing for the overall championship. One class is for Cobra Jets utilizing the 2.3-liter supercharger or 428cid naturally aspirated engines, and one for the 4.0-liter supercharger (essentially running modified NHRA Stock and Super Stock rules, respectively). Both classes will be run heads up until a winner in each class is determined. Once each individual winner is crowned, there will be a handicapped start (based on the quickest time for each individual competitor) Showdown with no breakout to determine the King of the Cobra Jets.

“The Cobra Jets have had amazing success on the track, winning events across the country – but not everyone has had the chance to compete in their car. The Cobra Jet Showdown gives all CJ owners an opportunity to experience what the Cobra Jet can do. This is a great opportunity to learn about the car, get some seat time, and share experiences with racers who campaign the Cobra Jet regularly – along with the Ford team that engineered and produced it ,” said George Goddu, Manager, Ford Racing Performance Group. “It’s a unique opportunity that no Cobra Jet owner should miss. Of course – bragging rights are involved too. We make the best car in the world. But who is the best driver? We look forward to finding out.”

The class will qualify on Friday, and run on a Sportsman ladder with a .500 full tree for Saturday eliminations. Each class will feature a $2,400 purse and the overall winner of the Showdown will receive an additional $2,000. Car and driver entry into the FRPP Cobra Jet Showdown is available free, compliments of NMCA and Ford Racing.

Top Fuel Funny Car racer Bob Tasca III will be present as the Grand Marshall of the Cobra Jet Showdown, and the Tasca family’s Cobra Jets will be competing in the Shootout!
