Weekend Recap: May 4-7th NMRA Ford Motorsport Nationals
UPDATE 5/7/2017 @Noon: On behalf of the entire staff here at Maple Grove Raceway, we want to thank the racers, fans and NMRA for making every attempt possible to complete the 17th Annual WyoTechNMRA Ford Motorsport Nationals. However, Mother Nature got the best of all of us this weekend.
“Due to continuing showers here at Maple Grove Raceway and very cool temperatures, the NMRA has been forced to discontinue racing here this weekend. It’s been a tough weekend for sure, and the decision was not made lightly.
As a result, all NMRA championship class eliminations will be moved to the upcoming Super Nationals June 8-11 at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio.
All qualified competitors who were at the Maple Grove event will be given one timed run on Friday morning of the Ohio event. Index class racers will be allowed to change their index based on that timed hit. Eliminations for all classes will also be run on Friday.
All True Street racers who were here at Maple Grove, will receive a voucher for a True Street entry at the event of their choice for the next 12 months – including this event next year.
Bracket racers who ran in Saturday’s race who are still in competition in Round 2 will split the purse. All Sunday bracket racers will receive a one-day voucher for next year’s event.
Thanks to all racers and fans who hung in their with us on a very difficult weekend.”
