Nothing says “monster Ford event” more than celebrity appearances, and the Nitto Tire NMRA All-Ford World Finals at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, KY, October 1-4, will be bursting at the seams with awesome heads-up racing and TV star participation. MAVTV’s House of Grudge host, Mike Murillo, will be signing autographs all day Saturday beside his championship-winning Ford Mustang in the SCT display on the manufacturers midway. The action continues into Saturday evening for the first ever NMRA Grudge Night, where Murillo plans to take on other Mustangs from around the U.S. under the lights. Who knows… maybe Murillo will take on Street Outlaws’ Chris “BoostedGT” Hamilton, #5 on the 405 list, who will also be participating at the NMRA World Finals.
When asked about his plans to attend the NMRA All-Ford World Finals, Murillo jokingly replied, “I cleared my busy, exhaustive schedule to make this once-a-year event that we’ve missed the last two years. We always look forward to and enjoy the World Finals. We have so many fond memories from Bowling Green and can’t wait to catch up with our Mustang family and friends. See you there!”
