NMCA’s Nostalgia Muscle Class Runs Strong With Erson Cams As New Sponsor
Santa Ana, California (March 13, 2023) — With a loping idle from a performance camshaft a classic muscle car pulls into the water box. No museum piece, however, it is a finely tuned racing machine that burns the tires before running anywhere from a 12- to 9-second pass. This is NMCA’s Nostalgia Muscle category, and now it runs a little stronger for the 2023 season as Erson Cams becomes the class sponsor and its sister company, World Products, joins as presenting sponsor.
“There is nothing like seeing a classic muscle car still performing at a high level in 2023, and Nostalgia Muscle keeps that spirit alive to the delight of NMCA fans everywhere,” Steve Wolcott, President and CEO of NMCA, said. “These racers push the classic engine platforms to high levels of performance, so it is appropriate that storied performance brands like Erson Cams and World Products are supporting this category.”
Erson Cams Nostalgia Muscle presented by World Products is an index-style foot brake-only class designed for 1955 through 1985 vehicles, which are classified based on a visual inspection and an elapsed-time range.
With a mix of championship drag racing, index classes, street-car action, a huge car show, and a massive manufacturer’s midway, the Red Line Oil NMCA Muscle Car Nationals offers must-see events for muscle car fans across the country.
