I have lost a true friend...

In my 30 years at the helm of Maryland International Raceway, I have had the privilege of working with many great racers... many with big personalities, incredible driving skills, and impressive racing accomplishments. However, none had the spirit, heart and caring for others as my friend, Bunny.

She was a serious racer for sure, but she was also an incredible ambassador to the sport of Drag Racing that we all love. The thing I will remember most about Bunny was the one-on-one time she spent with her fans at the back of her trailer on every race day. She made sure everyone that wanted an autograph or photo or simple "hello" was given the opportunity before she would leave for the evening. There are literally thousands of photos of children with Bunny all around this country. For the lucky ones, they have a photo in her car or with her helmet on, that have provided special memories for them. My daughter, Ashley, has one from when she was about 8 years old.

My heart aches and I will truly miss my dear friend. We will be planning a celebration of life with Bunny’s family, friends and fans once this world gets back to normal and we can all come together again. In the meantime, I have put together some photos to share with everyone of Bunny at the track she called her "home track", Maryland International Raceway. Until then, be safe and be kind to others as my friend, Bunny, was to all.

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!!
