Custom T's back as co-promoter of the East Coast Grudge Nationals.

One day after Custom T's pulled out of the East Coast Grudge Nationals due to their loss of financial backing a deal has been struck to continue the partnership in the race. At no time did MIR change any business arrangement or fee from the deal that has been in place for the last several years.

Royce Miller President and promoter of Maryland International Raceway stated "We were very disappointed and surprised that Larry was not able to continue with the event due to his loss of financial backing. We have always enjoyed working with Larry and his folks and putting on great grudge events together, so much so that we had just expanded to three Custom T events for the first time ever this year. It was important to us to help Larry with the situation and were able to come up with a business deal that lowers his up front risk for the event. So we are all looking forward to a great Custom T's East Coast Grudge Nationals on Sunday August 31, so pass the word"

08/15/14:::::::Door Car Vets Bob Patton and Jeffrey Jones Win Top ET at Raider ET Series

Another big weekend of bracket racing at Maryland Int’l Raceway is in the books. This past weekend, MIR hosted it annual $10K/$2K Poker Bash where big money was at stake in all classes, including Junior Dragster where racers could take home $500+ each day as well. In what is becoming a new tradition at MIR leading up to a big money bracket race, racers had a chance to pick up some early cash during the Friday night Test and Tune. In 4 different Hi-Roller races, several drivers were able to kick start their weekend and line their pockets with some quick cash.

08/12/14:::::::MIR names Gary Simons as new Operations Manager

The Miller Family would like to welcome Gary Simons to the team as the new Operations Manager for Maryland International Raceway. Gary and his wife Juli are relocating from New York where he has been assisting with the operations of SHCRA and the ESTA Dragstrip plus he has spent some time behind the microphone as well. Gary will be taking over the human resources department at Maryland International Raceway and will be doing the hiring, training, and scheduling for our track officials, security guards and announcers.

08/12/14:::::::Robert Jones Wins 2014 Rick’s Jewelers Ring for the Queen


The Rick’s Jewelers Ring for the Queen program in the Speed Unlimited ET Series rewards the drivers across the series in its 4 classes for perfection. A perfect reaction time or running dead on your dial in any bogie or elimination round, qualifies you for a diamond point. The time slip from the run where the diamond point was earned, must be verified and initialed by a tower official before the end of racing that day. In previous seasons, the first ET Series racer to accumulate 5 diamond points was declared the winner, and received a diamond solitaire ring valued at $9,600. However, for the 2014 season, the magic number was raised to 6 diamond points.

08/05/14:::::::Autofab Race Cars Raider ET Challenge Rescheduled to Oct 11-12 at MIR

Autofab Race Cars Raider ET Challenge Rescheduled to Oct 11-12 at MIR

The twice weather cancelled Autofab Race Cars Raider ET Challenge at Virginia Motorsports Park has been rescheduled to October 11-12th at Maryland International Raceway.  There just was not a date available in VMP's schedule to complete the event without going into late November.  The decision was made to finish the series on October 11-12th at MIR - which already had a Saturday and Sunday Speed Unlimited ET series double-header weekend scheduled.

The MIR Dash Playoff points and the Southern Maryland Outlaw Top Sportsman Series will be held as previously scheduled. So mark your calendars for the three great Autofab Raider ET Series weekends at MIR on Aug 9-10, September 6-7 and October 11-12th!

Special Note from Royce Miller

When considering the rescheduling options, all three tracks looked at their schedules to try and find an available date that did not conflict with ET points races at the other partner tracks.  While Virginia Motorsports Park did have a couple of possible dates on their schedule, those dates conflicted with the ET Points races at the other partner tracks.  A special thanks goes out to Richmond Dragway and Virginia Motorsports Park for their selfless consideration for what was best for the overall series.

 

07/31/14:::::::2 x 5 = Top Fuel History at MIR


For the first time ever at a Mickey Thompson MIROCK Superbike Series event, Top Fuel motorcycles took to the meticulously prepped quarter mile at Maryland International Raceway. It was the WPGC Bike Fest this past weekend, July 25-27, and while just being there guaranteed a certain amount of history for both the series and the sport, no one was expecting a significant milestone moment. So when the scoreboards lit up with the world’s first ever side-by-side, 5 second motorcycle pass, pandemonium spread through the record-setting crowd.

07/31/14:::::::Outlaw Drag Radial anticipation at an all-time high

After almost a two month layoff, the Outlaw Drag Radial category returns to Maryland International Raceway this Friday night August 1st. Teams have benefited from the time off to help improve and refine their programs which should make for an epic throw down in a class that has risen from the ashes at MIR in 2014. 18 Car’s fought it out at the last event on June 6th, a very strong car count that put on a show fans at MIR won’t soon forget. Several records were broken at the last event including the fastest quick 8 field in ODR history, requiring a 4.66 elapsed time just to get into the show.

07/29/14:::::::Fenton, Bodmer, Spicer and Reynolds Claim Poker Bash $10K, $2K Victories

Another big weekend of bracket racing at Maryland Int’l Raceway is in the books. This past weekend, MIR hosted it annual $10K/$2K Poker Bash where big money was at stake in all classes, including Junior Dragster where racers could take home $500+ each day as well. In what is becoming a new tradition at MIR leading up to a big money bracket race, racers had a chance to pick up some early cash during the Friday night Test and Tune. In 4 different Hi-Roller races, several drivers were able to kick start their weekend and line their pockets with some quick cash.

07/22/14:::::::Junior Dragster: Stars of Tomorrow, Today. IHRA Junior Dragster Team Finals Event Recap


What started as a concept idea in the early 1990’s, has turned into one of the most competitive and exciting classes in drag racing. Giving young children between the ages of 8-17 the opportunity to idolize the biggest names in the sport, with cars that replicate Top Fuel dragsters, some even designed as mini Funny cars. Competing on many of the same tracks all over the world that host some of the fastest racecars on the planet, the boys and girls that drive junior dragster, do it for the same reason as their quarter mile idols, love of the sport.

07/16/14:::::::S&J Racecars to sponsor $3,000 to win purse at Test & Tune on Sunday, Sept 28

S&J Racecars has signed on to sponsor a $3,000 to win Top ET 1/8 mile Race during MIR’s Test & Tune event on Sunday, September 28, 2014.

All Top ET cars are welcome to stay over an additional day for yet another chance at a “big buck” purse at MIR, all in the same weekend!

06/26/14:::::::Lecates, Shoop and Parlett Take Home $5K Victories at $5K Triple Header


MIR kicked off the summer with the opening weekend of the 1/8th mile Speed Unlimited ET Series and their annual Top ET $5K Triple Header. With a threatening forecast for both Friday and Saturday, many racers may have been skeptical that the entire event could be completed, but all racing was completed by 6:30 Sunday evening, even with a rain storm washing out Saturday’s race in 2nd round of Top and Mod. Even though the points races and main event didn’t start until Saturday morning, big money racing got started on Friday night, with the Hi-Roller races held during the test and tune. Four hi-roller races were contested, a Mod ET race, Junior Dragster, and a $100 entry fee Top ET race, and a $200 Top ET race.
