The NMRA Ford Nationals, the nation’s premier all-Ford motorsport show, is proud to announce its return to Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Illinois, in 2019. GMP has a history of Ford-related high-performance events as a previous host track for the NMRA series in 2000. The May 16-19, 2019 NMRA Gateway Rumble will be the third stop on the series’ 2019 championship tour.
“I’ve been friends with Chris Blair and the staff at Gateway Motorsports Park for a long time and putting together a great program for our NMRA series was a goal that has now been accomplished,” said Rollie Miller, general manager of the NMRA Ford Nationals. Miller proclaimed the event title as the Gateway Rumble, a throwback to an event in the early years of the Mustang drag racing movement that helped define the segment.
“Our entire team at Gateway Motorsports Park is excited to host the NMRA as part of our 2019 schedule,” said GMP Executive Vice President and General Manager Chris Blair. “The NMRA showcases the best Ford racing in the United States. The on-track product is excellent and die-hard automotive enthusiasts will enjoy their tremendous midway and product displays.”
