Maryland International Raceway ™ (MDIR) has added a new event to the 2020 season. The name of the event says it all, Total Chaos Night of Radials. This is an open test night on Saturday, July 18th for all drag radial cars, pro cars, slick cars, grudge cars and more. Both the Coors Light lane and the Napa Auto Parts lane at MDIR will be radial prepped. The staging lanes will be simple, 1/8th mile regular time, 1/8th mile no time, Ό mile regular time and Ό mile no time. All lanes will run on a .400 pro tree. Gates will open at 3pm with testing, callouts, and grudge races running from 5pm to midnight. This is a racer’s dream to have full on radial testing under the lights at MDIR in prime conditions. This never-before-done test session is certainly one not to miss! Racers can test for $150. Crew member admission for adults is $20, Juniors 12-15 are $10, children 11 & Under are free. Non-Judged Car Show entry is $10. Racers that are traveling are welcome to stay overnight and leave Sunday.

An additional Speed Unlimited Midnight Madness event has also been added to the 2020 season on Friday, July 17th. All of our Speed Unlimited Midnight Madness classes will be running at this event. All prices, entry fees, and times will be the same as any Speed Unlimited Midnight Madness event. There will also be a non-judged car show at this event.
