The Devil Went Down to Georgia

3 years ago Racing

Looking for something to do this weekend? Consider attending the second stop on the NMCA drag racing schedule at the Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia. The NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals will be home for devilish good times and side-by-side quarter-mile competition. Aptly named “Georgia’s House of Speed”, the Atlanta Dragway is known for its awesome starting line traction and “bite” that seasoned and novice racers alike are anticipating in putting down some good times.

Among the many Challenger and Charger street competitors gathering in the pits and staging lanes, the All-Star Nationals will also have a few Drag Paks ready to duke it out with the COPO Camaros and Cobra Jet Mustangs in the Holley EFI Factory Super Cars class. These purpose-built, turn-key “package cars” symbolize the factory’s full-court press in the horsepower wars to dominate the class with stock appearing assembly-line vehicles with current production engine architecture. Just like in the 1960s, the “Win on Sunday, Sell on Monday” mantra is back as Detroit’s “Big Three” is once again playing hardball for bragging rights.
