Industry News   |   Posted: 02/11/2021

Fast-paced Street Outlaws will compete at all six national NMCA events.

Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels is going street car racing nationwide in 2021, serving as the title sponsor of the newest full-time NMCA Muscle Car Nationals drag race category.

The Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels Street Outlaw category will be contested at all six NMCA national events this year. The fast-paced 275 Radial class joins five other heads-up eliminators to create one of the most diverse championship lineups in drag racing.

“We’re thrilled that the Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels Street Outlaw category has gained full-time status on this year’s NMCA schedule,” said Ken Warner, Vice President of Marketing, Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels. “Several big-name racers requested the 275 Radial category be expanded for 2021, and Mickey Thompson was happy to step up and help make it happen.”

The category offers compelling competition with supercharged, turbocharged and nitrous-enhanced entries that run far into the 4-second zone on sets of 275/60R15 radial tires. The Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels Street Outlaw class mimics the popular X275 Radial eliminator.

“Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels Street Outlaw racers always bring great competition to the NMCA events and we are happy to host them at all six stops in 2021,” said Rollie Miller, NMCA General Manager and National Event Director.
