It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of our friend, Mike Wills.

He passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, Sept 5th from an apparent heart attack while at home. Mike was the director of fire & rescue operations at MDIR and has worked at the track for the last 29 years. He was inducted into the MDIR Hall of Fame in 2017, for his long-term service to the track and great care and concern for the racers and fans that attended.

Royce Miller stated, “I have been at the helm of Maryland International Raceway for 30 years now and Mike has been by my side for 29 of those years. He is responsible for the development and training of the second-to-none fire & rescue program here at the track. His legacy and memory will continue on with his policies, procedures and dedication to the racers and fans that he instilled in us all, for years to come. I personally will miss my friend, and we all are better people having known him.”

Mike will be missed by all the racers, fans and staff of the Maryland International Raceway family. God Speed
