Nitto Tire is once again bringing its NT555RII bonus program to both the Dodge//Mopar HEMI Shootout and TorqStorm Superchargers True Street categories, which boosts the purse to $1,000 for the 9-second, 10-second, 11-second, 12-second, 13-second, 14-second, and 15-second winners. The bonus program will be available during the complete 2021 NMCA Muscle Car Nationals event schedule.
The program began last year to celebrate the release of Nitto’s all-new NT555RII drag radial and 14 racers walked away with $1,000 cash each courtesy of Nitto Tire. The NT555RII drag radial was released as a better design to its popular and successful drag radial program. The NT555RII exceeds dry performance, wet traction, comfort, and quietness over the NT05R while still maintaining a 100 UTQG treadwear rating. Nitto engineers accomplished this task through a drag race compound, reconfigured sidewall, and tread design.
Harry Kong, Manager, Brand Publishing, at Nitto Tire U.S.A., said “The NT555RII is a D.O.T.-compliant competition drag radial designed with additional flexibility for the weekend drag racer.” Nitto currently offers 28 different sizes for 15-to-22 inch diameter wheels, check www.NittoTire.com for sizes and authorized dealers near you.
“We’ve been partners with Nitto Tire for over 20 years with all of our series and we are thankful for their continued generosity to NMCA racers. They have an unwavering commitment to NMCA drag racing, even during these extraordinary times, and our True Street and HEMI racers benefit greatly from it,” said Rollie Miller, General Manager and National Event Director of the NMCA Muscle Cars Nationals.
The 2021 season begins at Bradenton Motorsports Park March 18-21 with the insanely popular Whipple Superchargers NMCA Muscle Car Nationals Presented by Holbrook Racing Engines, complete with 200 mph VP Racing Fuels Pro Modifieds, Holley EFI Factory Super Cars, other championship heads-up categories with Index and street car categories.
