"Since 2011 the Cobra Jet Showdown has been a huge success and we are
happy to have the opportunity with NMCA to bring even more Cobra Jet

opportunity to experience their Cobra Jets and interact with the community of
fellow owners and Ford Racing staff," said Jesse Kershaw, Drag Racing

opportunity that all Cobra Jet owners should participate in and an excellent
show for all fans of production based racing.”

All 3 Cobra Jet Showdown classes will qualify on Friday, and run on a
Sportsman ladder with a .500 full tree for Saturday eliminations. The Top
