NORWALK, OH — The National Muscle Car Associations’ 2017 NMCA All-American Nationals roared into Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk this weekend. Armed with cameras, our team was there to take in some of the action.

The event hosts a huge range of racing classes and vehicles. We saw everything from a vintage Plymouth station wagon to the big three’s newest factory racers: Mustang Cobra Jet, Challenger Drag Pack, and Camaro COPO.

The weather was beautiful, the competition was fierce, and the racers were friendly. Check out this gallery from Friday’s testing and qualifying.
