For the second time this season, the competitors of the NMCA and NMRA converge on the same property for the annual Super Bowl of Street Legal Drag Racing here at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet just outside Chicago. Racers have been met with unseasonably cool temperatures that feels more like October than June, meaning we could see some record performances this weekend. Stay tuned throughout the weekend as we bring you all of the NMRA action along with Sunday’s Super Bowl Shootout against the NMCA contingent.

Special thanks to our event sponsor SCT Performance. Check out their great line of tuning products at www.sctflash.com.


Brad Medlock is here in Joliet hoty off a win at the NHRA Unleashed race in Tulsa two weeks ago to compete in the tough Drag Radial category and on the quarter mile for the first time. Medlock has been 4.82 with an 88mm turbo strapped to his 400 cubic inch powerplant, but has had to swap to an 85mm unit for NMRA battle. The stock suspension ride sports an aluminum block with D3 heads and a TCI Powerglide transmission with a PTC torque converter.

Two years ago former NMRA champion John Kolivas showed up with a set of drag radials on his Mustang in Super Street Outlaw and took home the record. Shortly after, drag radials were banned from SSO. In 2011, Kolivas is back with the true 10.5s on the car and has broken yet another SSO record. Kolivas went a 7.059 @ 202 mph for the number one spot. Now the big question is, when will SSO break into the 6s?
