For our final stop of the 2009 Keystone Automotive NMRA Ford Nationals, we head to the rolling hills of Bowling Green, Kentucky. Beech Bend Raceway will again be home to our World Finals event. As the11th annual event, this is not only one of the NMRA's oldest, but hands down the largest. With over 400 heads-up race cars attending in 2008, you can expect close to 500 this year. 5.0 Mustang will also host its awesome King of the Street competition where 16 of the best all-around Mustangs shoot for the coveted title! And for those of you with more than just racing in mind, the World Finals features one of our largest car shows, swap meets and vendor midways. So come down to Beech Bend Raceway for an action-packed all-Ford extravaganza and watch the 2009 season championship be decided on the strip!


NMRA World Finals to Host 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords' King of the Street Competition

The NMRA World Finals just got more exciting because 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords magazine will once again host their King of the Street competition at this event which will take place at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, KY, Oct. 1-4, 2009. The NMRA and 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords have been partners since 2001 with 5.0 Mustang sponsoring NMRA's popular Real Street class that runs at every NMRA event. While Real Street is is a wheels-up class for purpose-built race cars, King of the Street is designed to bring together the coolest and fastest street cars from across the U.S. to compete for this coveted title. To capture the King of the Street title the car needs to do more than produce serious horsepower and run down the 1/4 mile. Its appearance needs to make people drool and it must be able to cruise the town with all the creature comforts we expect in the 21st century. Last year's winner, Jeff Mingledorf and his Modular Powerhouse-built ’03 Cobra convertible, ascended to the top for the 2007 competition. Jeff’s Cobra made 932hp on the dyno, and idled in traffic for over 30 minutes without a hiccup.

"5.0 Mustang's King of the Street competition is a great event to check out each year at the NMRA World Finals," said Charlie Harmon, president of the NMRA. "The caliber of vehicles that enter this competition is awesome because they look incredible and they all put down some serious numbers on the dyno and on the track. This competition further demonstrates the connection that the NMRA and 5.0 Mustang have with serious street-legal performance enthusiasts. Steve Turner, the editor of 5.0 Mustang, and his team truly bring out the best street Mustangs from around the U.S. to compete for the honor of King of the Street."

The NMRA World Finals is the largest all-Ford drag racing event in the U.S. and it is held each year at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, KY. King of the Street is just one of many special features of this event, which will be held Oct. 1-4, 2009.
