QUEENS, NY. (February 2, 2018) – OGS1320 announced Maryland International Raceway as the new venue for HDAY Spring 2018 on April 7 and 8 due to the closure of the drag strip at Raceway Park in NJ.

“Our fans have made it clear that drag racing is an important part of HDAY and in the best interest of time our staff worked around the clock to find a new venue in the northeast. We’re looking forward to working with Royce Miller and the MDIR team at their world class race track and creating a long-term partnership,” said OGS1320 production manager Brian Mabutas.

Javier Ortega, director of OGS1320, stated, “We’re excited for the opportunity at Maryland International Raceway! The facility has a great reputation and it’s great to know that the MDIR team is just as excited to host our fans, racers, and car show competitors.”

Royce Miller, IRG’s COO and acting GM at Maryland International Raceway, stated, “We are very excited to host HDAY at MDIR and to work with both Brian and Javier at OGS1320.

The MDIR Team will ensure that your experience at HDAY will be the best ever!”
