MECHANICSVILLE, MARYLAND (January 6th, 2021) –  Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, MDIR unfortunately will not be able to hold the annual Champion and Awards Banquet for the 2020 Speed Unlimited ET Series and the Speed Unlimited Midnight Madness series champions at the Waldorf Jaycee Hall this year.

However, we will present all trophies, awards, and points fund checks for these champions at the Hitchcock Autoworks stage at the track. The awards for the Speed Unlimited ET Series will be given out at the first ET Series race of 2021 on Saturday, March 27, just before first round of eliminations. The awards for the Speed Unlimited Midnight Madness series will be handed out at the first Midnight Madness event of the year on Friday, April 2, just before first round of eliminations.

MDIR will have a new ET Series title sponsor for 2021 and beyond with 1320 Fabrications joining the series. We are looking forward to seeing everyone back at MDIR in 2021!
