BELLEVILLE, Ill. – A leading auto-racing sanctioning body since 1946, the New Mexico Motor Racing Ass’n, based in Albuquerque, N.M., will now compete under the POWRi banner.

Setting a solid showing of 18 events for the season, the NMMRA will venture to three separate tracks throughout the land of enchantment extending from early April to October.  Starting the season in style on Saturday, April 4 at the newly built Vado Speedway Park. Co-sanctioning with the POWRi Lucas Oil Border Tour, all eyes will be on beautiful Vado, N.M., for this one of a kind event.  With this event marking the first of four visits to the picturesque Vado Speedway Park, other stand-alone shows will be May 5, June 13 and Aug. 8.

This next POWRi NMMRA season of speed will also see a two-night spectacular presented by Aztec Speedway on the weekend of Sept. 11-12. The high-banked three-eighths-mile will try to contain all the horsepower these traditional sprints have to offer.

Sandia Speedway, the fast and always exciting three-eighths-mile dirt oval in Albuquerque N.M., will continue to serve as the home venue for the POWRi New Mexico Motor Racing Ass’n. Hosting 12 race dates throughout the summer including the fan-favorite season finale, the eighth annual Sprint Car Stampede.

“We’re all looking forward to the start of the season, we listened to our drivers and fans on this.  Everything just made the most sense going with the POWRi team, from the points to the promotion they have everything we were after to put on the best racing possible,” said the POWRi NMMRA Series Director Steve BoneSteel.
