Battle in Bradenton
The quickest EcoBoost Fords fought to the finish at the NMRA opener
By Steve Turner
At last year’s NMRA World Finals in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Livernois Motorsports joined forces with the NMRA and your friends at SVTP to host the first-ever EcoBoost Battle. The response was so overwhelmingly positive, that all the parties involved decided it was worthy of expanding into three events this season and the first of 2016 went down at the season opener in Bradenton, Florida.
“We decided to expand EcoBoost Battle into three events due to demand. For the past three years we have worked very hard to stay in constant contact with NMRA enthusiasts and keep an eye on the market in order to make decisions that make sense. The response leaving Bowling Green last year was overwhelming for this class and that buzz continued through the winter,” NMRA Event Director Rollie Miller recently told us.
That buzz was readily apparent as 11 EcoBoost Fords—including a Focus ST and a Taurus SHO—arrived at Bradenton Motorsports Park to battle for the title of quickest EcoBoost machine in the land.
