10/21/14:::::::Barry Mitchell clinches ODR title with a bang

It’s a 5 hour and 30 minute drive from the small town of Hamptonville, NC to the gates at Maryland International Raceway in Budd’s Creek. A drive Outlaw Drag Radial racer Barry Mitchell and his team became all too familiar with for the 2014 season. After the lights go out at MIR following an ODR event sometimes well after midnight, the long trip home can best be described as exhausting. Showing up to fight is just half the battle in capturing a championship crown. The other half is performing at a high level and winning critical rounds at every event. Mitchell accomplished both this season never qualifying worse than 3rd and capturing two impressive event wins....

10/15/14:::::::Larry Boswell, Brian German and Kody Mariner Capture 2014 Autofab Raider ET Series Championships

     

Sometimes Mother Nature just doesn’t want to cooperate. After postponing Virginia Motorsports Park’s Autofab Raider ET Series weekend twice due to weather, it was finally rescheduled for this past weekend at MIR, the only available date for any of the three participating tracks. A threatening forecast once again cast doubts on whether the event would be completed over the weekend. If it were unable to run, there were no dates left to reschedule the event and the series would be cut short at just 3 weekends and 6 races. Rain persisted all day on Saturday and at 3pm, race officials decided to cancel Saturday’s race and try to complete Sunday’s race if the weather cooperated. With only one race left heading into Sunday morning, there was little room for error for those fighting for the Raider series championships. Fortunately, the weather held out on Sunday, and with the exception of a few passing showers, the Raider championships were able to be settled on the track...

10/06/14:::::::Maryland International Raceway wins Division 1 Summit Team Finals

09/30/14:::::::Fredy Scriba wins 2nd Annual "International Pro Mod Challenge" at Snap-On Superchargers Showdown

The Second Annual International Pro Mod Challenge was an overwhelming success with 33 pro mods in attendance, several cars running in the 5.90’s and quicker and many more running in the 6.0 range. 2012 [NEOPMA] Champion Fredy Scriba and the “Sorcerer Team” had their 63’ Pro Mod Corvette ready for action and proved it with an impressive 5.91 personal best ET and win at the second annual “International Pro Mod Challenge” at Maryland International Raceway this past weekend. Fred’s consistency was awesome, and [NEOPMA] Team USA take the Title back from Canada at the Pro Mod Challenge’s second event...

10/01/14:::::::Jelich and Parlett Win $5K’s as Dash Fields Set at Snap-On Superchargers Showdown

This past weekend, MIR hosted the Snap-On Tools, International Pro Mod Challenge at the Superchargers Showdown.

For Top ET and Mod ET racers...

09/25/14:::::::Michael Shoop Leads Team “Quack Heads” to Victory in Team Challenge

Last Saturday, racers at MIR participated in a mini bracket finals style event. Racers formed teams of 8 racers, across all classes, to compete all other teams present. The entry fee for the team challenge was just $20 a racer, with 100% payback, where the winning team gets 70% of the purse with the second place team receiving 30%. Also, this race marked the final day to qualify for The Dash in Top and Mod for the 1/8th mile points series.
As far as the Team Challenge went, team Quack Heads was one of just two teams to get all 8 team members into round 2. The team, made up of all Top ET racers, lost 3 racers in round 2. In round 3, they lost two more, leaving just 3 racers. But when all 3 of them won in round 4, they took a commanding point lead. In round 5, the three Quack Heads remaining, Charles Link, Michael Shoop, and Steve Morgret all managed to miss having to race each other, when Link was drawn for the bye. Morgret was paired up with Jeff Groat from team Fun Bunch. Fun Bunch entered round 5 with Groat as their last team member standing...

08/26/14:::::::Ron Rhodes Clinches X275 Title

Of the 4 X275 events held at Maryland International Raceway this season, they have all shared 1 common result. That result, is Townsend Delaware’s Ron Rhodes making a final round appearance. In a five race series Ron and his BES 23 degree Nitrous Small Block Chevrolet 68 Camaro, tallied up two event wins and two runner ups wrapping up the championship title with 1 more event remaining on the calendar. Rhodes has been stone cold consistent at MIR and is the only racer to log an E.T. in the 4.50’s at all 4 of this year’s events. At a venue where the drag radial based classes are referred to as “The Shark Tank” for its fierce competition, it goes without saying that bringing home a championship is no easy feat at MIR.

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.
