Winner of the heads-up class as the NMCA All-Star Nationals gets a new Eaton supercharger and $1,000.

If you have a Corvette with either an LS- or LT-based engine topped with a TVS supercharger, a trip to the NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals on the weekend of April 4 through the 7 at Atlanta Dragway could yield you a new, bigger supercharger and $1,000. Eaton has teamed up with the NMCA to hold the TVS Supercharger Throwdown to showcase vehicles running twin vortices blowers and the winner takes home a new supercharger from Edelbrock, Magnuson or one of Eaton’s other corporate partners.

In other words, if you have a crazy-quick, TVS-blown Corvette, you could make it even quicker with a new supercharger just by winning the Eaton TVS Supercharger Throwdown.

Throwdown Guidelines

The Eaton TVS Supercharger Throwdown is part of the Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals at Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia, starting in April 4 and running through the 7. The class is open to any NMCA-legal vehicle running a GM LS or LT engine, a Ford Modular motor or a Mopar Gen III Hemi, all of which have to be topped by a TVS supercharger. There is just one class and everyone runs heads-up, so you will need a very fast, very consistent car to take home the title.

“This event is made possible because of EATON and its primary technical partners including Edelbrock, Harrop, Magnuson Superchargers, ROUSH Performance, and SuperchargersOnline.com,” shared Rollie Miller, National Event Director for NMRA and NMCA. “We’ve been talking to enthusiasts and specialty shops to bring their best cars to compete for big money and prizes, while having fun at the All-Star Nationals.”

The winner of the TVS Supercharger Throwdown gets a new supercharger from Edelbrock, Harrop, Magnuson Superchargers or ROUSH Performance, a check from Eaton for $1,000 and an award based on the twin vortices design. This means that if you have an 8-second, Magnuson-blown Corvette, you could win a replacement blower or an upgraded unit.

TVS 2650

Speaking of upgraded superchargers, Eaton is using this partnership with the NMCA to showcase their newest blower, the TVS 2650. The 2650 is the biggest blower to use Eaton’s twin vortices technology, measuring 15% bigger than the 2300 series while offering 25% more air flow at 18,000 rpm/14 pounds of boost and requiring 18% less input power. The new unit also features new bearings for improved durability, a 170-degree twist to the rotors and a better seal between the rotors.

In other words, the TVS 2650 is bigger, better and more efficient than any TVS unit before it, leading to more power potential than ever before. You could win one of these new units if you win the TVS Supercharger Throwdown and if you think that you have what it takes to win, click here for more information on registration.

A lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years, Patrick Rall is highly experienced in the automotive world. He has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now auto journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

“Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500,” says Rall. “He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car: a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16. Meanwhile, I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

“Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group,” adds Rall. “While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

“Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never ‘work’ a day in your life. I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

“My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

“Being based on Detroit, I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit’s Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.”
