Event Preview: The 2018 NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals

Pull those belts a little tighter, because it’s time for the NMRA and NMCA to invade Atlanta Dragway for the 10th Annual NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals April 5-8. There will be an enormous amount of racecars partaking in this spectacle of speed, and you can see it all LIVE on SpeedVideo when the action begins.

There is something special about the All-Star Nationals because it brings both the NMRA and NMCA together for the first time in the season at an amazing facility. The Atlanta Dragway will be alive with the sounds of horsepower of all varieties as racers from both series try to earn points, score some bragging rights, and win cold hard cash.

Owners of late-model GM and Dodge musclecars will have the chance to get in on the action at the All-Star Nationals in 2018. During the Chevrolet Street Car Challenge and Dodge/Mopar HEMI Shootout, owners will have the ability to register and take part in the event for free. There will be different categories of racing for both events that will take place on Saturday of the All-Star Nationals, so if you have a late-model GM or Dodge vehicle, register NOW to be a part of the action!


The Factory Super Cars All-Stars, Street Outlaw All-Star Shootout, and Sealed Stock Shootout will all be a part of the All-Star Nationals this year. Racers from each of these NMCA and NMRA classes will be selected to be a part of these special events at Atlanta Dragway. Every racer will be trying to bring home the extra cash on the line and show they are the best in the NMCA and NMRA.

The All-Star Nationals is more than just special shootouts and street car races — this event has serious points implications for both series. Every racer on the property at the All-Star Nationals will be fighting to go as many rounds as they can to help earn those vital points that will win a series championship later in the year. With so much racing on tap, it’s no wonder the All-Star Nationals is one of the most attended events of the year.

If you need a break from all the racing action, the All-Star Nationals will have you covered too: there will be a midway packed with great vendors looking to get you the parts needed to go fast. A full swap meet will be going on, as well, to help gearheads find those hard-to-locate parts. If you like looking at badass rides there will also be a car show that will be overflowing with killer rides.

The NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals will be rocking at Atlanta Dragway April 2-5 with non-stop racing action. Every round of racing will be broadcast live RIGHT HERE on SpeedVideo in full HD.
