There was a marked improvement in downtime during the 2014 season and much is directly credited to the broader use of engine diapers.

The IHRA rulebook requires diapers in all of their pro classes plus Top Sportsman, Top Dragster and Quick Rod. Any car that is supercharged or nitrous injected that runs 7.99 or quicker 1/4 or 5.00 or quicker 1/8 mile is also required to have a diaper per IHRA rules.

MECHANICSVILLE, Md.  - November 19, 2014 - IRG Sports + Entertainment™ (IRG) President & CEO, Jason Rittenberry, announced today that the company has launched the International Drag Bike League (IDBL), and has named MIROCK Superbike Series founder Jason Miller as the Promoter of the new series.


For 2015, the IDBL will be comprised of five events with four events at IRG owned Maryland International Raceway and one event at Atco Dragway. There are plans to expand the IDBL to additional tracks in the Northeast for 2016 and return to a seven or eight race schedule.


IDBL Promoter Jason Miller states, "I started the Mickey Thompson Tires MIROCK Superbike Series a little over a decade ago between Maryland International Raceway and Rockingham Dragway and it has always been my biggest passion. I have always done most of the leg work to grow the series into what it is today and I am very fortunate to have the support from our motorcycle racers, families, fans, sponsors, media, and staff. I want everyone to view this transition to the IDBL as an evolution of the MIROCK Superbike Series, and not a dissolution."


"Two years ago I added Atco Dragway to the MIROCK schedule and the series grew from two tracks to three tracks. The MIROCK events at Maryland International Raceway and Atco Dragway have always thrived with bike counts in the 600-700 range at every event, and we have even seen as many as 800 bikes at an event."


"I have enjoyed the personal relationship with Steve Earwood at Rockingham Dragway over the last decade, and I am very grateful for the support he has shown me over that time," Miller continued. "I wish him all the best with his facility, but we are moving onwards and upwards with the motorcycle series. I have never been more excited about the future of our sport than I am right now."

The IDBL will be the same racing program that the MIROCK racers, fans, and sponsors have come to enjoy. All payouts, entry fees, admission prices, and vendor pricing from the MIROCK structure will remain the same for the IDBL. The IDBL will host the following nine classes: Orient Express Pro Street, DME Racing Real Street, Louis Concrete 4.60 Index, FBR Shop 5.60 Index, Cycle Connection Crazy 8's, Trac King Clutches Top Sportsman, Fast by Gast Pro E.T., Brock's Performance Street E.T., and Grudge. The IDBL will also honor Gold Cards from the 2014 MIROCK Champions.


In the coming weeks IRG will launch the new IDBL website at with all the details along with a new logo and branding for the series. Stay tuned for more information and exciting news in forthcoming press releases during the off season.


Be sure to follow the IDBL on Instagram and Twitter @RaceIDBL, on Facebook at and visit


We look forward to seeing all of our motorcycle drag racers, fans, families, sponsors, and media at the first IDBL event of the season at Maryland International Raceway on April 24-26, 2015.
