It will once again feature the Northeast Outlaw Pro Mod Association (NEOPMA), Outlaw 10.5, 1320 Fabrications Warrior Outlaws, No Clock Street Vs the World, MPC Real Street, No Clock Small Block, and the full Speed Unlimited ET Series program. This will be one of our “must attend” events this season.

Miller Brother Productions returns with the Xtreme Dragbike Association (XDA) and each of these events will draw thousands of motorcycle racers and fans. XDA will feature 1/4 mile six-second, 220 mph Pro Street bikes along with sportsman motorcycle racers. You can find out more information at

Street Car Takeover comes to MDIR on August 15th to host their event in Maryland. This roll racing and drag dacing series, “Where Street Cars Rule,” continues to grow each year with an impressive fan and car count at each event. There are 18 classes for this series giving almost every type of racer a class to run in. This is an event to show up early for as the car count will fill up quickly and so will the stands.

The 2020 edition of the Superchargers Showdown will be another stellar event! October 9th – 10th, Top Fuel returns to MDIR! Clay Millican and Dom Lagana will be back again trying to reset records and turn on win lights. Lagana and Millican split last year’s match race 1-1. They also split the track records with Millican taking the ET record and Lagana taking the MPH record. Who will be left standing at the end of the day? Plus, we have the return of NEOPMA Pro Mods, 1320 Fabrication Warrior Outlaws, Jet Cars, Bunny and the Boys Funny Car, and the Speed Unlimited ET Series. More details to come.
