05/14/15:::::::Mickey Nelson and Steve Witherow Capture $5K Victories at Mountain Motor Nationals


 

MDIR’s Top ET racers got their first shot at some serious cash this season at the 2015 edition of the Mountain Motor Nationals. The two day event features two $5,000 to win racers for Top ET, all run on the quarter mile. This is one of the few time bracket racers get to hang it out on the “long track” as most racing has transitioned to the 1/8th mile over the last few seasons. Top ET would compete on both Friday night and then again on Saturday, where they would be joined by the remainder of the Speed Unlimited ET Series.

05/12/15:::::::$5,000 to Win in Top ET on Fri & Sat at the SuperChargers Showdown

Attention all Top ET drivers, mark your calendars for the Superchargers Showdown on Friday & Saturday, September 25-26. This event will feature a huge $5,000 to win payout each day! Purses for this race also include round money at $100 per round starting with 2nd round winners. This is the last 1/4 mile Top ET High Roller race for the 2015 season. On Friday, we will run Top ET (only) along with the Pros - points will not be in effect. Then on Saturday, we will run the full Speed Unlimited ET Series with points in effect for all classes (regular weekly payouts will apply to Mod ET, Motorcycle ET and Junior Dragster).

04/27/15:::::::Andy Tibbs and Ed Foley Take Home $5,000 Victories in Top Sportsman at Door Wars


The Pro’s vs. Joe’s Top Sportsman format has been a staple of MDIR’s Door Wars event for several years now. This unique format gives all door car racers who can cover the 1/8th mile in less than 6.00 seconds a chance to compete on level playing field with big money at stake. Still, it is drag racing, and being quicker and faster has its advantages. The Top Sportsman field is qualified, with the top 16 qualifiers being placed into a separate bracket from the “non-qualifiers”. The quick 16, the Pro’s, have the advantage of a set field size and just by qualifying, they have earned $100, even if they lose first round.

01/06/15:::::::Engine Diapers Directly Credited to Less Downtime in 2014

There was a marked improvement in downtime during the 2014 season and much is directly credited to the broader use of engine diapers.

The IHRA rulebook requires diapers in all of their pro classes plus Top Sportsman, Top Dragster and Quick Rod. Any car that is supercharged or nitrous injected that runs 7.99 or quicker 1/4 or 5.00 or quicker 1/8 mile is also required to have a diaper per IHRA rules.
