MIR has some of the best bracket racers in the country and we have a great “big buck” bracket program designed just for you in 2024. MIR will once again host the two King of the Creek events on May 30th – June 2nd and September 5th – 8th. After a fantastic showing at the Footbrake Feast in 2023, it will return November 15th – 17th. MIR also hosts four two-day ET Blowout Weekends with $5K to win in Top ET, $2K to win in Mod ET, as well as $500 to win with the Hubble Motorsports Junior Dragsters each day. The first Blowout of the season is the Opening Blowout held April 6th-7th. The Spring Blowout is held May 18th – 19th, the Summer Blowout is September 21st – 22nd and the final blowout of the year is the Fall Blowout on October 26th – 27th. The Fall Blowout will not be an MIR points race, as this will conflict with the WDRA World Finals. Racers at the WDRA Sportsman Series will have a chance at $5k to win in Top ET, $2,500 in Mod ET and $500 in Junior Dragster on August 16th – 18th. Atomizer Racing Injector Door Wars presented by ATI Performance Products, Burchoil Jet Wars, and the Superchargers Showdown will all be 1320 Fabrication ET Series presented by East Coast Collision points races.

The Late Model Performance Midnight Madness Series and 1320 Fabrication ET Series presented by East Coast Collision are the backbone of our schedule and they both promise to continue delivering fun and friendly competition for you and your family to enjoy. Also, be sure to make Budds Creek your destination when you need to Test & Tune your car or bike on select Friday nights and Sundays.

We are excited to bring our racers, fans, media, sponsors, and vendors another great season of good times, racing and fun at Maryland International Raceway. We hope to see all of you at Budds Creek in the spring.
