The second annual EATON TVS Supercharger Throwdown returns in 2020 with a brand-new format, giving competitors 5 ways to win and new location at World Wide Technology Raceway during the Nitto Tire NMRA/NMCA Super Bowl of Street-Legal Drag Racing presented by HPJ Performance over the weekend of July 30-August 2, 2020.
The rules are simple, if your vehicle relies on a late-model engine (GM LS/LT, Ford Mod Motor, or Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep Gen III HEMI) and utilizes an OEM or Aftermarket TVS-based supercharger—regardless of manufacturer—then it’s eligible for the EATON TVS Supercharger Throwdown. All racers will get a series of test-and-tune sessions leading up to Saturday’s timed event, which will have three designated “qualifying” sessions. NMRA/NMCA officials will average the three qualifying runs together to establish a competitor’s average time. Those average times will be listed with cash and awards presented to the racers who have the quickest 9-second ($500-to-win), 10-second ($500-to-win), and 11-second ($500-to-win) averages. In addition to those three time zone winners the Overall Quickest TVS Supercharged car in competition will be crowned the winner ($1,000-to-win) along with a runner-up finisher ($500-to-win).
Expanding on the new ranking system will be Quick 4 heads-up race on Sunday. The heads-up competition winner walks away with a TVS supercharger of choice from one of EATON’s technical partners (Edelbrock, Harrop, Magnuson Superchargers, or ROUSH Performance) and a custom TVS-themed award built by SuperchargersOnline.com. The runner-up walks away with $500 while the two semifinalists get $250 each.
“The location and schedules might have changed with both series but we are still packing them with great activities for competitors and the EATON TVS Supercharger Throwdown is very much a part of that,” shared Rollie Miller, National Event Director for NMRA and NMCA.
