This upcoming race is one many fans have eagerly anticipated. Murder Nova, piloted by Shawn Ellington, is set to face off against Jim Howe for the first time in three seasons. Both drivers began competing in the NPK series around season four, yet they've never lined up against each other until now. This showdown promises to be an intense battle during the Grudge Racing segment in Brainerd.

While Grudge Racing at NPK events often serves as a testing ground, this race stands out. It's not just a test pass; it's a significant matchup between two of the fastest cars in the series. Historically, most grudge matches don't carry the same weight as elimination rounds, but this one is different. Scheduled for the second round of Grudge Racing in Brainerd, this race is a must-watch.

Murder Nova has been a model of consistency this season, rarely aborting a pass and maintaining impressive speed. Jim Howe, on the other hand, has a reputation for being extremely fast but struggles with consistency. Despite this, Jim's car has set impressive records, including the only known 27 MPH run in NPK and a strong record against top competitors like Ryan Martin.

In recent events, Jim Howe's performance has been noteworthy. He triumphed in the Outlaw Big Tire category, defeating Nate Taylor, another top-tier racer in NPK. This sets the stage for an exhilarating race against Murder Nova, who has been in top form this season with two NPK Invitational wins already under his belt. Jim Howe has also secured a win, making this matchup even more compelling.

Both racers are highly competitive and dedicated to their craft. There's speculation about whether this race will involve a cash prize or another incentive, but regardless, both drivers will undoubtedly give it their all. It's rare to see a big grudge race in NPK, which adds to the excitement and anticipation for this event.

Grudge races are crucial for NPK's appeal, offering thrilling previews before the main eliminations. They add a layer of excitement and showcase the drivers' skills and strategies. While most drivers reserve their best for the $330,000 Invitational event, this grudge race between Murder Nova and Jim Howe promises to be a highlight of the Brainerd event.
