Anyone can claim to be the best stick shift driver when it comes to drag racing. Just like anyone can say that their car is the quickest. But until the win light comes on and the trophy is hoisted, those are just empty words.
That's why TREMEC, together with the National Mustang Racers Association (NMRA), created the TREMEC Stick Shift Shootout seven years ago. The first of two TREMEC Stick Shift Shootouts in 2020 will take place at the Annual Nitto NMRA Spring Break Shootout in Bradenton, Florida, February 28 - March 3. This is a chance for racers to put up or shut up and settle who has the quickest manual-transmission equipped car at this event!
Any True Street competitor using a street-type manual transmission is eligible to compete in the 2020 TREMEC Stick Shift Shootout. Race-oriented modifications, such as face-plating, are allowed, but the transmission must be shifted by a single, hand-operated shift handle. No multiple-lever, Lenco-style transmissions are allowed, nor are any transmissions shifted by air, electronic or hydraulic actuation.
