The Speed Unlimited Midnight Madness series ran at Maryland International Raceway ™ (MDIR) is run on select Friday nights. Classes include the Ray’s Siding No Clock Street List, Hollyrock Customs Diesel Shootout, Bracket Bike Racing Matters Motorcycles, Super Street and Pro Street. The later of these classes have an opportunity to discover who can be the Midnight Madness Grand Champion. To qualify for the Grand Championship the rules are simple, show up and win your class.


The field for the Pro Street class is filed with recognizable names. This year’s eligible racers are Steve Cross Jr, Jerry Mason, Jim Devane, Brenden Quade, Bob Avalos and the winner for the final race of 2019, Steve Cross Sr. Racers have been attempting to tame the 1/4 mile for many years, but these racers will have an opportunity to see if they can take the 2020 crown.


In Super Street, the 2020 eligible racers bring a mixed bag of experience. Some are veterans of the sport, some fresh faces, and even a first-time winner in Midnight Madness. This year’s racers for Super Street include Shawn Marlow, Keith Burch, Randy Bercier, John Morgan, AJ Jenkins, Brandon Marlow and the winner for the final race of 2019, Matthew Moorman. This group of racers will make this class an interesting one to follow.


The Hollyrock Customs Diesel Shootout returns to the Championship runoff this year. The 2020 eligible racers bring regular supporters of the series. This year’s participants for Hollyrock Customs Diesel Shootout include Aaron Nelson, Lexi Buckler, Michael Quade, Andrew Grant, and Hunter Levin. This is a talented group of racers will bring stiff competition all the way to the end and will be interesting to see who will be left standing.


The 2020 eligible racers for the Speed Unlimited Midnight Madness Grand Champion Runoff for the Mobile Lab Racing Motorcycles are as follows: Jordan Stacy, Laray Proctor, Jeff Sweeney, and Rafaelle Proctor. These racers come with plenty of motorcycle experience across all forms of competition. It could be anyone’s race come the final night.


The Speed Unlimited Midnight Madness Grand Champion will run on Friday October 23rd. Gates will open at 6pm with time trials starting shortly after. Eliminations will start roughly around 9pm. These four classes will run separately until one racer remains in each class. Pro Street, Super Street, and the Hollyrock Custom Diesel Shootout class winners will run to see who the Speed Unlimited Midnight Madness Grand Champion is! Bracket Bike Racing Matters Motorcycle will have their own champion and will not race in the runoff. Who will be left standing at the end of the night? Good luck to all our racers and we will see you at the final Speed Unlimited Midnight Madness of 2020!
