Chevrolet Performance COPO Camaro Shootout presented by COPO Parts Direct

NMCA is proud to host the 3rd annual Chevrolet Performance COPO Camaro Shootout presented by COPO Parts Direct. This special event takes place the weekend after the Woodward Dream Cruise and the weekend before the NHRA U.S. Nationals, and features the largest gathering of modern and vintage COPO Camaros (tributes & clones welcome). Participants, crew members, and family will celebrate COPO Camaro’s iconic heritage with racing centered around three COPO Camaro-only drag racing classes.

COPO Crazy

COPO Crazy is by far the most popular class at the COPO Camaro Shootout. With easy-to-follow Open Comp format rules, COPO Crazy welcomes both supercharged and naturally aspirated vehicles with various set-ups, modifications, and levels of performance. COPO Crazy class racers are permitted to double-enter in NMCA’s Stock/Super Stock class (additional tech card fee applies).

As the largest class of the shootout, COPO Crazy offers a generous purse and prizes as follows:

Winner: $3,000 + NMCA Victor trophy + Winners Circle Experience
Runner-Up: $1,500 + Plaque
Semis: $500
Quarters: $250
Rosebush Racing Top Qualifier: $500

COPO NA Heads Up

COPO NA Heads-Up is a class designed for naturally-aspirated COPO Camaros that want to race heads-up. COPO NA Heads-Up attracts hardcore NA vehicles that don’t fit into NMCA’s Factory Super Cars class, but want to showcase the highest levels of NA performance (factory spec and mildly modified NA racers will prefer the COPO Crazy class). COPO NA Heads-Up class racers are permitted to double-enter in NMCA’s Stock/Super Stock Combo class (additional tech card fee applies).

Holley EFI Factory Super Cars

The quickest COPOs on the planet compete in the Holley EFI Factory Super Cars category, where they wage war against the Cobra Jet Mustangs and Drag Pak Challengers on the quarter-mile. These are the supercharged machines that put out over 1,500 hp and power to 7-second elapsed times.
