Maryland International Raceway





Due to the State Mandated Restrictions on Mass Gatherings, this weekend's HDAY
Event has been cancelled.


MDIR To Close Temporarily for
All Events and Track Rentals Until At Least April 26

Due to Maryland Gov Hogan’s recent prohibition of gatherings of 10 or more people, we are forced to close the track to all events and track rentals effective Friday, March 20.

We look forward to a time when we can resume operations at our facility, but until then we are suspending all racing and track rentals. We will remain a three-week rotating schedule unless stated otherwise. We will closely monitor the situation and respond accordingly with regard to the Governor’s mandates. Once the restrictions are lifted, we will evaluate any cancelled events for possible rescheduling.

Thank you for being a valued participant and fan at our racetrack. We wish you and your family well and look forward to being able to provide a safe racing environment as soon as we possibly can.


We ask that you please do NOT attend the track if you:

-Have been outside the United States in the last 2 weeks
-Come in close contact with someone who has been outside the US in the last 2 weeks
-Have been diagnosed with COVID-19
-Have been in close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19
-Display any symptoms of COVID-19 (to include fever, cough, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing)

We reserve the right to deny entry to anyone who seems to meet the above criteria, as we want to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Furthermore, make sure you are all taking extra precautions. Wash your hands frequently, avoid sharing things and avoid close contact with other people. Please make good choices.


Door Wars Rescheduled
to Aug 21-23
To be combined with IHRA Sportsman Spectacular



In light of the COVID-19 virus and State of Maryland directives, we will not be able to hold the Door Wars event as scheduled. However, we have rescheduled the Door Wars event to Aug 21-23, 2020.

Door Wars will be combined with the IHRA Sportsman Spectacular that same weekend. The Sportsman Spectacular is the full Speed Unlimited ET Series with points each day for a special purse and entry fee, with the same classes that were already scheduled for Door Wars.

The event and schedule will look very much the same as the originally scheduled April Door Wars. All the purses, Ironman trophies and entry fees for the Sportsman Spectacular will remain the same. Some of the special activities like the pit bike race will have to be dropped due to time constraints.

This will be an action packed weekend you won't want to miss!!



PFR Spring Nationals on Apr 24-26
has been cancelled

The XDA is ready for the 2020 racing season to start, but unfortunately we must cancel the Platinum Fleet Repair Spring Nationals at Maryland International Raceway on April 24-26th. This event will not be rescheduled. This action has been taken due to public safety and the nationwide social distancing recommendations being extended until April 30th.

We still have 5 great events left on the 2020 XDA Championship Tour. The season kick-off will now be the 34th annual MTC Engineering Summer Nationals at Virginia Motorsports Park on May 15-17th.

Wash your hands frequently, stay positive, and practice social distancing in the meantime. This situation will get better in time and we look forward to seeing you all soon.

We will keep our current status updated on so you can verify our status at any time. Thank you and we look forward to kicking off the 2020 racing season!
