Mike Jovanis Wins NMRA True Street Class Over 130 Car Field
NMRA True Street is a racing class for mildly modified to heavily modified high performance Ford-based street vehicles that are street certified and able to drive over a 30-mile distance. Vehicles must be registered, licensed, and insured. Mike Jovanis, long-time True Street Veteran racer battled head to head with 130+ cars at the NMRA Spring Break Shootout in Bradenton, FL and won the event. These high performance street cars must drive a 30 mile street route, then do 3 back to back 1/4 mile passes, and the car with the fastest, most consistent 3 passes wins. This means the car must have a a large fuel system, a proper cooling system, the driver and car have to make 3 consistent passes without going to the pits to make any changes.
“Consistency is key in NMRA True Street Racing”, says Jovanis, “from the GTX5533R Gen II 88mm turbo, to the Disomma Racing Engine, we’ve developed this winning combination over many years and are proud to add another win to the team’s resume”. Jovanis won the race class with a 7.89 second 1/4 mile 3 run average in a field of 130+ cars. Mike Jovanis also won the 16 car shootout with a 7.66 second 1/4 mile pass at 177 MPH.
