• Jr Dragsters will not be run at Door Wars on April 16-18, 2021. Due to a large anticipated car count with a significant number of high horsepower heads-up cars, we have to run a schedule that doesn’t run too late on cooler April nights for these cars. However, we have added a Jr Dragster Double Header event on Saturday May 29th, and with the Young Guns, there is a total of 21 points races for Jr Dragster, the same as Top and Mod for the year.

• A Team B will again be run at this year’s Summit Racing Equipment IHRA Team Finals held at MDIR on Sept 23-26. Team A will consist of the first 17 points leaders in Top ET, the first 13 points leaders in Mod ET and the first 10 points leaders in Junior Dragster. Team B will consist of the next 17 racers in Top ET, the next 13 racers in Mod ET, and the next 10 racers in Junior Dragster.

At the Team Finals, the B Team will earn team points as a separate team and all purses, gambler’s races, etc, will be the same as the A Team. However, the B Team will have to pay their entry fee (Top ET & Mod ET is $80, Junior Dragster is $60) and will not receive a team jacket. With the addition of a B Team, their will be no Wild Card Race

• To ensure as much track time as possible for Test & Tune racers at both the Spring and Fall Swap Meets, we will no longer run an ET combo race.

• Effective for 2021 and beyond, co-riders will not be permitted at Late Model Performance Midnight Madness or any other events, regardless of ET. Due to racers allowing co-riders that have not signed the Release & Waiver and been properly wrist banded.

• All N/T racers must wear a helmet, regardless of ET

• Attn Late Model Performance Midnight Madness racers: Drivers are only allowed one spot in the Runoff regardless of wins in multiple classes. Once any driver has won two Grand Championships, they can no longer compete in the Runoff and are restricted to racing a fully registered vehicle if they wish to continue racing in the Late Model Performance Midnight Madness series

• The Late Model Performance Midnight Madness Grand Champion Run-Off will start at 8pm, being round robin from the start, during time trials of the regular race, and will be completed before eliminations of the regular Friday night Midnight Madness race. Racers that are in the Grand Champion Run-Off will then be able to run eliminations of the regular race.

• Motorcycles run with Mod or Top ET. Any bike that leaves with a button must run Top ET. This will allow all bikes to compete for higher purses and qualify for the bracket finals in both classes. Also, all bikes must run 10.00 and quicker (1/8 mile), no dirt bikes, ATV’s or scooters permitted. Must have street tire or slick

• Air and electric shifters are permitted in Mod ET

• Ignition limiters and/or any ignition controls used to excessively slow the car down are prohibited. In other words, any ignition device that would act like a throttle stop to excessively slow the ET of a vehicle is considered an illegal device. If you are unsure whether or not your set up is legal, please check with a tech official.

• Points membership into the 1320 Fabrication ET Series is still FREE for all classes! Your purchase of a tech card at any ET points race includes automatic free enrollment into the points series.

• Test & Tune tech cards are available on all 1320 Fabrication ET Series events for only $40 each and include up to 4 runs.

• The timeout on the Compulink AUTOSTART system for all ET classes is 10 seconds (except Jr Dragster, which is 15 seconds). All Pro Tree classes are 7 second timeout, including N/T Shootouts. N/T testing and grudge racers are 20 second timeout.

• All racers are encouraged to check their points weekly. There will be no corrections made after 30 days from the event.

• Always be sure to check that the number on your time slip is correct on EVERY RUN as points are only awarded to the number on the time slip. If your time slip reflects a wrong number, bring your slip to race control or notify a track official so that we can correct the error and adjust your points.

• Track Credit Policy - If a driver breaks prior to running first round at any event, they can receive a track credit (no cash refunds) that can be used at any future MDIR event. The credit amount will be the entry fee paid minus the general admission for the day. For any Test & Tune tech card at any event, once you have made a run there will be no credit issued if you break.

 

We encourage all drivers that race purpose-built race cars (not street cars) to install an engine diaper on their car. The IHRA rulebook requires one in all cars that runs 7.99 or quicker 1/4 or 5.00 or quicker 1/8 mile. We've witnessed countless avoidable accidents from oil getting on the tires - resulting in long unnecessary track clean-ups. Installing an engine diaper could save your car, it could save you from possible injury or maybe even save your life. It will also save valuable track time for the enjoyment of fellow racers and fans. It will help reduce track expenses for cleanup resulting in earlier event completion.
