Steeda’s John Urist Sets New Class Record
The 2014 Nitto NMRA Spring Break Shootout in Bradenton Florida this past weekend was the official kickoff of the 2014 drag racing series, and it was obvious that the NMRA racers most certainly did their homework during the off season and the competition was tighter than ever at this most challenging race series where there were some exciting passes and incredible competition down at Bradenton Motorsports Park.
In the Street Outlaw class, Steeda and Nitto Tire sponsored driver John Urist led the field with his red 1993 Fox body Mustang by putting down a stellar 7.042 at 200 miles per hour and then went on to better that number with the quickest pass in class history – a 7.032 en route to the final round where he blasted his nearest competitor with a 7.10 run to once again take top honors. With a total of 8 National Championships under his belt already, John is once again off to a great start in the highly competitive NMRA Street Outlaw series. The entire Steeda Team congratulates John and his team for a job well done and we wish him continued success!
