Entering its sixth season of NMRA competition, the TREMEC Stick Shift Shootout power-shifts its way to an even bigger 2018 event. And, as in year's past, TREMEC will host the popular Racer Appreciation Party. The event will be held March 2-4 at the Bradenton Motorsports Park in Bradenton, Florida.
To encourage fans of the manual transmission to come out and experience racing in a safe, fun, and no pressure environment, TREMEC will provide $100 to the first 25 competitors to pay towards their entry fee.
On Saturday, the Top 8 stick-shift racers that complete QA1 True Street will be entered in Sunday's Stick Shift Shootout. Each entry in the shootout will receive a custom TREMEC jacket and award before embarking on a new format for eliminations.
As the eight cars get whittled down to two, the winner will walk away with a McLeod Racing RXT Twin-Disc clutch with flywheel (approximately $1,300 value), while the runner-up will receive a $500 McLeod Racing product certificate.
The Stick Shift Shootout rules are simple: Street-type manual transmissions only and the transmission can include race-oriented modifications such as "face-plated" or "pro-shifted" gears. It must be hand operated via a single shift handle. Transmissions with multiple levers or air/electronic/hydraulic actuation not permitted.
Following the True Street competition on Saturday March 3rd, TREMEC will host a Racer Appreciation Party that will take place before the Aerospace Components Winner's Circle awards ceremony. Open to all True Street racers, along with their families and crew, the gathering will feature plenty hot pizza, cold beverages and good cheer for all!
