Everyone has a chance to win one of several raffle prizes provided by NMCA sponsors. And it doesn?t stop there! Each NMCA Car Show event is featured in Fastest Street Car, the official publication of the NMCA. A big part of what makes the NMCA Car Show Series the best in the U.S. is the awesome Awards Pavilion at each event. From the moment you enter the facility with your show car, the NMCA Awards Pavilion is the place to be. Car show registration takes place at the Awards Pavilion, followed-up later with a drivers meeting hosted by NMCA?s car show director, Dave Farley, and finally the official awards presentation will take place there at 4:00 pm each day, Saturday & Sunday.
