MECHANICSVILLE, MARYLAND (August 5, 2022) – Footbrake racers for years have asked for a big buck race for their style of racing. At the end of 2021, that call was answered. An announcement at the end of the 2021 season was made that FRBR Promotions was moving their signature event, Door Wars, A Footbrake Experience to Maryland International Raceway (MIR) to be held August 11-14, 2022. While this may be the 6th annual edition for the all 1/8th mile event, this will be its first time ran at MIR.

Co-owner Shane Sweigart commented “When looking for a new home for this race, we focused on finding a facility highly regarding for customer service, with a track team who can handle racing late into the night, and in a geographic region which appealed to competitors from the Carolinas to the New England region. MIR checked all the boxes.”

The race has grown steadily since its inception in 2017, and today is regarded as the best footbrake race offered in the northeast. The current purse offers a 10K-20K-10K format for Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the event. The event will kick off on Thursday August 11th with a Test and Tune from noon – 4:30pm and Gambler’s race to start after the Test & Tune.

Andy Anderson, promotional partner offered “This weekend is so much more than just a big money race. It is truly about giving everyone who comes in the gate a memorable experience. Only a few people go home with big checks, but everyone can leave feeling appreciated while having fun racing with their friends.”

Gates will open for parking starting on Thursday August 11th at 9am with Testing starting at noon and a $3,000 to win Gamblers Race to Follow. Friday gates will open at 8am with a Time Trial for all entries at 9am and eliminations to follow. Saturday gates will open at 8am with a Time Trial for all entries at 9am and Eliminations to follow after the Time Trial. A Racer Dinner will be held around 6pm plus a Reaction Time Challenge after Eliminations are completed. Sunday gates will open at 8am with a Time Trial for New Entries only at 9am and Eliminations to start around 9:30am.
