NMRA at Hebron, Ohio

James Meredith was the Factory Stock winner.

Despite a forecast of high heat and humidity, drivers from across the country dove into competition at the 13th Annual NMRA Ford SuperNationals at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio, June 9-12.

The spectacle marked a return to the Buckeye state track after a several year hiatus, and anticipation was high, as it’s traditionally one of the largest all-Ford events in the country, and the Aerospace Components Winner’s Circle awaited.

In VP Racing Fuels Street Outlaw, Vinny Palazzolo drove his Mustang to a 4.59 and 165 mph to take the top qualified spot, but it was Charles Hull (shown) and Ronnie Diaz who met in the final, with Hull picking up the win by running a 4.88 at 155 mph in his Mustang powered by a Bennett Racing Engines-built 400 cubic-inch small-block Ford and a 98mm Precision turbo, while Diaz lifted to a 5.76 at 152 mph.
