The 16th Annual Quick Fuel Technology NMCA Bluegrass Nationals will pack historic Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky with the best doorslammer racers from all over the country May 18-21st. This event will also be the first stop of the season for the Chevrolet Performance Challenge Series, and that means there will be tons of wicked-fast LSX-powered cars hitting the track, as well. All of the racing will be broadcast LIVE on Speedvideo.com right here!

So far, the 2017 NMCA season has been action-packed and filled with some of the best doorslammer racing in the country. At the NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals, there were some huge performances, including Adam Flamholc smashing the Xtreme Pro Mod record multiple times. Now, all the stars of the NMCA are ready to invade Beech Bend in their quest for an NMCA championship.

One of the biggest shootout races of the NMCA season will be held at the Bluegrass Nationals: the Dave Duell Nostalgia Super Stock Classic. This special event will feature all of the classic Detroit musclecars of the NMCA battling it out for their chance to win $4,000 in cash. There will also be payouts for class eliminations, and an FX Class Shootout, so there will be plenty of great old-school racing to see.
