New Weekly Speed Unlimited ET Series
Saturday Schedule for the 2013 Season


January 25, 2013


In an effort to keep costs down and shorten the overall event day, a change in the non-special event Saturday schedule has been made. In the past just J/D and Test & Tune ran in the beginning of the day and there was a lot of down time between each time trial session and early elimination rounds. Starting this year, the gates will open at 1pm as in the past but all classes will now start time trials at 2pm. On Saturdays with a morning club, the gates will open at 9:00 am and the E.T. racers are welcome to come in from that point on.

The run order will be J/D, Top, J/D, Mod, M/C. Test & tune will run between each class until they have their 4 runs. This will prevent down time and move up the start of eliminations to 6pm - which will shorten the day and complete eliminations earlier each night. This will make it more enjoyable for everyone by not having to run so late and will also help with staffing and lighting expenses. It also allows us to postpone any ticket and/or entry fee increases for now.

For the special events that have the full Speed Unlimited ET series (the Mountain Motor Nationals, IHRA Pro Am and the SuperChargers Showdown), please check the website for the event schedule as all classes will start earlier (J/D will also be the first class down the track at all events). Please be at the track early as we will be vigilant in our push to stay on schedule so that we can complete all ET classes early. Also on special ET events such as the Autofab Raider ET Challenge, $5K Triple Headers, 10K-2K Poker Bash etc., please refer to the event flyer and/or daily schedule on the website at mirdrag.com for the exact schedule. We also welcome you to call our office at 301-884-9833 with any questions you may have.
