Because of recent spam attacks on Mediawiki sites by the tens of thousands of spammers concerned with the length, girth and hardness of our Johnsons, we have had to temporarily disable new registrations and editing until measures can be taken to ensure there is no further vandalism of this site. We apologize for the assholes out there that don't have better things to do, and will find a work around soon. Meanwhile, there are still thousands of MoparWiki pages containing a wealth of information.


Intro

ProMedia LLC, the leader in muscle car motorsport events and publishing, was founded in 1998 by performance enthusiasts who recognized the incredible growth and popularity of street-legal drag racing. ProMedia Events (NMRA and NMCA) produces up to sixteen national motorsport shows each year, attracting hundreds of thousands of racers and fans. ProMedia Publishing (Race Pages, Fastest Street Car, NMRA Digital and NMCA Digital) delivers the best in all-domestic drag race action, tech, features, and more each and every month.

ProMedia Events

ProMedia Events debuted in 1999 with the much-anticipated launch of the NMRA Ford Nationals, which quickly secured a #1 position in Ford Drag Racing by the end of 2001. Following-up on its winning formula for event production, ProMedia Events successfully launched the PRO-Edelbrock Drag Racing Series in 2003, and later branded it with the newly acquired NMCA name in 2005. Today, the NMRA Ford Nationals and the NMCA Hot Rod & Muscle Car Nationals are the undisputed leaders in street-legal drag racing and motorsport shows.
