Now Crowns MIR’s
New Hot Rodz
A monumental icon of
drag racing history now crowns the
all-new Hot Rodz Diner at Maryland
Int’l Raceway. Graciously donated by
Bunny Burkett, the championship
winning 1985 Chrysler Laser Top
Alcohol Funny Car adds soul, spirit
& celebration to the new landmark.
In the 60’s, Bunny worked in a
Baltimore Playboy Club to earn money
to purchase a 1967 Ford Mustang.
Shortly after, “Lead Foot Bunny” was
painted on the car and a nickname
was born. In 1973, Bunny started on
her way to become a professional
driver as she got behind the wheel
of a nine-second Pinto Pro Stocker.
She later traded it for her first
Funny Car, and a star was born.
Being the first woman to ever win an
IHRA World Championship, her fame
and fan-appeal follows her from
coast to coast with one exciting
chapter after another. However, it
was her passion for racing that
opened up a daunting new chapter in
her life… the fight for her life
following a horrific accident in
In an instant, her life was changed
beyond the mind’s eye - held captive
in a coma for three weeks. Her
eminent struggle to survive was then
challenged with countless surgeries
and a grim prognosis. With the help
of God, her family and the
overwhelming support and
encouragement from her fans, she was
able to return to the drivers seat
In her love and dedication to all
fans of drag racing, she jumped on
the opportunity to give tribute back
when she heard about development of
the new Hot Rodz Diner. “I love MIR…
it’s my home track, my favorite
track” says Bunny. Thanks to her
kindness and good-will, this
historic landmark now embodies a
sparkle and vitality that will
forever be enjoyed and admired by
fans at Budds Creek!
