The 2023 NMRA Spring Break Shootout hosted the first TREMEC All-Female True Street Showdown of the year. This new competition gives women a special True Street subclass to race against each other for a new dynamic in the NMRA’s most popular drag racing format.
The TREMEC All-Female True Street Showdown abides by the same rules as regular True Street. Racers who enter All-Female True Street can also enter regular True Street for twice the fun. And, if their car has a manual transmission, they are also eligible to compete in the TREMEC Stick Shift Shootout. Winners for each time class in the All-Female True Street Showdown are determined via three-run E/T (elapsed time) average.
Leading the pack was Gaby Lujan, overall winner with her 9.67 E/T average driving a 1990 Mustang. Runner-up and taking the 10-second class was Deneen Segura in her wheel-standing 1988 Mustang averaging 10.17 E/T average. Jessica Moulden took home the 12-second class title with a low 12.13 E/T after three runs. The 14-second class went to Mary Ann Mammen, piloting her 2004 factory TREMEC-equipped Mach 1 with a 14.01 average. And Luan Walker finished things off, taking the 15-second class plaque home after her 1998 SN95 Mustang GT ran a 15.17 average E/T.
The TREMEC All-Female True Street Shootout will also take place during the NMRA 25th Anniversary Ford Homecoming, June 8-11, 2023, in Norwalk, Ohio, and NMRA World Finals and Holley Intergalactic Ford Festival, September 28 – October 1, 2023, in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Let’s see how many women we can encourage to compete in these events!
