Competitors in the NMCA Flowmaster WEST Street Car Series will close out the season at Auto Club Famoso Raceway in Baklersfield, California. The track will host the 2nd Annual Nitto Tire NMCA WEST World Finals Oct. 25-27. The race is the last of four where racers in 11 classes, including the six-second 240 mph Garrett Turbo Pro Street cars, can earn points toward the championship title. Event winners will take home a coveted Wally trophy, named for NHRA found Wally Parks. World champions will take home double-tier Wallys and the prized Nitto Tire Diamond Tree Champions Rings.

I want to race – how do I do it?
One of the staples of any NMCA event is the True Street class, designed for real, tagged and insured street-going vehicles that can make a 30-mile cruise along with three back-to-back-to-back passes for the ultimate torture test of a street car. The True Street class has been a huge hit at the NMCA events on the East Coast, and the expectation is that the attention-starved West Coast players will turn out in force. True Street gives out an award for the competitor closest to each full-second increment from 15-seconds on down, along with a runner-up award. The winner, or “King” of the event, receives a six-foot-tall trophy, a cape, and crown to go along with the media exposure an NMCA True Street win provides.
