The 2015 Maryland International Raceway schedule will be the most exciting lineup of events in our history. The season will consist of 104 race days with the season opener on March 7-8. Our signature special events in 2015 will include: (2) Performance Swap Meets, Door Wars, (4) Mickey Thompson Tires IDBL motorcycle events, NMRA Ford Nationals, Mountain Motor Nationals, (3) Custom T’s Grudge events, (3) War on Wheels events, (2) IREV Import events, IHRA Nitro Jam President's Cup Nationals, Truck Mania, PDRA, Jet Wars, Legends at Budds Creek, Snap-On Tools Superchargers Showdown, Ford Fever Classic, Mopar Eastern Classic, and the Haltech World Cup Finals – Import vs Domestic event. This year’s schedule is once again all about our racers and fans, and we have kept all of the events that everyone has come to love.

The Speed Unlimited Midnight Madness Series and the Speed Unlimited E.T. Series are the backbone of our program and promises to continue delivering fun and friendly competition for you and your family to enjoy. Also be sure to make Budds Creek your destination when you need to Test & Tune your car or bike on select Sundays and Friday nights.

MDIR has some of the best bracket racers in the country, and we have some great big buck bracket programs designed just for you. There will be a $5k race each day at the Mountain Motor Nationals on May 8-9, and another $5k race each day at the Snap-On Tools Superchargers Showdown on Sept 25-26. We will also have a Triple Header with three $5k to win races on June 13-14. There will also be a $10k for Top E.T. and a $2k for Mod E.T. at the 10k-2k Poker Bash on August 29-30. The Raider E.T. Challenge will also feature a Top E.T. $5k and a Mod E.T. $2k on September 12-13 and October 24-25.

The Mickey Thompson Tires International Drag Bike League (IDBL) is the new name of the former MIROCK Superbikes Series. Budds Creek will once again host the famous Spring Nationals on April 24-25, Summer Nationals on May 29-31, Bike Fest on July 24-26, and Fall Nationals on October 2-4. These are the largest participant events on our schedule, each drawing between 700-800 motorcycle racers. IDBL features 1/4 mile 5-second, 240mph Top Fuel motorcycles and 6-second, 220mph Orient Express Pro Street bikes along with hundreds of sportsman motorcycle racers.

The first special event of the season will be the 7th annual Door Wars on April 17-19. This event has grown every year and is quickly becoming our signature Outlaw event. It features the Northeast Outlaw Pro Mod Association going the distance on the 1/4 mile! The Outlaw 10.5 series is back along with Outlaw Drag Radial and X275 on the 1/8 mile as they hang the wheels to the finish line. The “Pros vs Joes” $5,000 Top Sportsman class is also back on the 1/8 mile and the pits will be packed with nearly 100 of the baddest Top Sportsman cars you have ever seen.

The Mountain Motor Nationals on May 8-9 and the Snap-On Tools Superchargers Showdown on September 25-26 have been dubbed the "Pomonas" of MDIR. Both will continue to be Friday and Saturday events with $5k to win in Top E.T. each day. These events will feature the Northeast Outlaw Pro Mod Association as they run the full 1/4 mile. With spring and fall temperatures coupled with the famous MDIR prepped 1/4 mile, the records won’t stand a chance.

The IHRA Nitro Jam President's Cup Nationals on June 19-21 just got even more exciting. The wild, nitrous-injected, supercharged and turbocharged Pro Mods are now back at IHRA and will be running the full 1/4 mile! Race fans will also witness Nostalgia Nitro Funny Cars, Top Fuel Harleys, Jet Cars and the MDIR fan favorite Mountain Motor Pro Stocks on the 1/4 mile. The event will also include hundreds of sportsman racers. If you want it fast and on the 1/4 mile, then mark down the IHRA Nitro Jam President's Cup Nationals on your calendars and stay in touch with the website for more details.

The Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) will make its first appearance at MDIR this year on July 17-18, and will feature three Pro Mod classes, Pro Stock, Pro Extreme Motorcycle, Top Sportsman and Top Dragster. PDRA is home of the fastest 1/8 mile doorslammers on the planet - so be sure not to miss all the action.

We always save the best for last… and the 20th annual Haltech World Cup Finals - Import vs Domestic delivers every single year. This 3-Day event will be held on November 6-8 and draws cars from NMCA, NMRA, LSX Shootouts, Buick GN Shootouts, SSCSO, IREV, IFO, Pan-American Nationals and other major series every year. At WCF, fans get to see over 500 racers from a dozen different countries battle it out on the 1/4 mile for $60,000 in cash purse and bragging rights in front of 25,000 fans. Adding to that excitement is the famous bikini contest, a custom car show, a huge vendor midway, DJ’s and more. For more information on this event, visit www.importvsdomestic.com.

We are excited to bring our racers, fans, media and sponsors another great season of good times, racing and fun at Maryland International Raceway. We hope to see all of you at Budds Creek in the Spring. To view the complete 2015 MDIR Schedule, click the following link: http://www.racemdir.com/v2/flyers/schedule/pdf/15_mdir_schedule.pdf
