2022 Holley Intergalactic Ford Festival and NMRA World Finals Presented By eBay Motors: Results And Awards

10/03/2022

When Holley's Intergalactic Ford Festival joined onto the NMRA World Finals race event at the end of their season, magic happened. The NMRA's drag racing and show car program has been established for years, so when Holley brought in a ton of other events to add to the fun, spectators celebrated and racers flocked in. Whether you were combing through the swap meet for parts, carving through the corners on the autocross course, sending your dying tires off to heaven in one final screaming burnout, or were flying off of a jump in the off-road course, Ford Festival has turned the NMRA's championship race of the season into a Blue Oval celebration. Thanks to everyone, racers and spectators alike, for making this year's Ford Festival a great one!

Torqstorm and MotorLife Burnout Challenge

FF2022 Burnout Winner Solomon Lunger


Winner - Solomon Lunger, 1978 Ford F-150 Ranger: "#1 With A Bang" couldn't be any more appropriate of a statement. Solomon was eager to bring "Snickers" onto the burnout pad and put the Mast Motorsports-built 7.3L Godzilla V8 to use. The engine roared but would shut off every time the rear swung around too hard. But what everybody will remember is the way the right-rear tire called it quits. The crowd wanted to see a tire pop, but nobody could've predicted seeing the inner bed wall break free, swing upward and smack the top of the cab!


FF2022 Burnout Runner Up - Lincoln Limo


Runner-Up: Kyle Delfel, 2005 Lincoln Town Car Limousine: Hail to the chief, baby! Nothing says "power flex" like a Lincoln limo with a power adder swinging the tail around like the pendulum on a grandfather clock. Seeing thirty-something feet worth of Lincoln hanging the back end out with the tires blazing while knocking over pretty much every boundary cone of the burnout box is something that has to be experienced in person. Burnout MC Chad Reynolds even hopped in the back for the ultimate VIP experience and was giving a play-by-play from the comfort of the back seat!

The NMRA Ford Nationals Car Show Series By UPR Products and Ford Muscle

FF2022 Car Show


The NMRA Ford Nationals Car Show Series gave judges a very unenviable task: walk through the fields of knockout show cars and pick class winners each day of the event. How do you pick winners when you can see over a century's worth of Ford products that are worthy of consideration? Not only do you have to choose between car and truck, but you have old and new to consider. And there is more than just Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury to contend with...there are brands like Edsel, De Tomaso, Shelby and AC to contend with, there are 100-point perfect restorations and some of the wildest builds to park up. But the judges made their calls, and the winners are listed below:
