Longtime NMRA True Street sponsor TREMEC, in part with presenting sponsor Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords magazine, has announced that they will hold the first-ever “Stick Shift Shootout” as part of this year’s 19th Annual NMRA Nitto Spring Break Shootout—March 7-10, 2013, in Bradenton, Florida.

Over 100 entrants will battle for top True Street honors, with the fastest eight stick cars receiving a special shootout plaque to recognize their prowess.

From there, the quickest two manual-equipped vehicles will have an all-out slugfest with a "winner takes all" best two-out-of-three heads-up finale.

The winner will be highlighted in a special event feature by Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords, and go home with a brand new TREMEC Magnum XL 6-speed transmission system valued at $3500. The system fits all S197 Mustangs, easily handles up to 700 lb.-ft. of torque, and comes with an SFI-certified bellhousing.

Additionally, TREMEC has also announced a Racer Appreciation Party that will take place before the True Street awards ceremony. Open to all True Street racers, along with their families and crew, the gathering will feature plenty hot food, cold drinks, and good cheer for all.
