2015 NMRA Bradenton – Steeda-Equipped Racer John Urist Sets Class Record!

March 17, 2015 7:34 pm

We had a great turnout this weekend at the 2015 NMRA event at Bradenton Motorsports Park. There were plenty of racing categories such as the Street Outlaw class and the Edelbrock Renegade class, although one of our favorites was the True Street class which was actually started by Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords and Tremec back in 1995.

If you’re looking to prove your True Street Mustang on the track, the event begins with a 30-mile escorted cruise with other True Street racers, passengers and crew members which serves the purpose of proving street-worthiness of all cars competing in the True Street class. Once the 30-mile cruise is complete, all racers head to the track for three back-to-back passes – racers aren’t allowed to work on their cars prior to racing, which also proves street-worthiness.

One of the highlights for Steeda was seeing John Urist qualify number one with a 6.86 pass at 204 mph – the quickest pass in class history! Urist had stiff competition on his heels with the next competitor making a pass at 6.88. The cloud cover broke on Sunday, and Urist’s Steeda-sponsored Mustang worked as expected to assist in running back-to-back 6.90’s to take the win! Urist is heading to the Atlanta races to continue showing the world what it takes to be a champion!
