The 2014 MIR season schedule once again has an exciting lineup of popular events. You’ll see the return of MIR’s legendary special events including: Door Wars, Mountain Motor Nationals, Jet Wars, Legends at Budds Creek, International Pro Mod Challenge at Superchargers Showdown and the Haltech World Cup Finals - Import vs Domestic. This year’s schedule is again all about our racers and fans and we have kept the best events on our schedule!

The highlight of the 2014 schedule is the return of the IHRA President's Cup Nitro Jam. Race fans will see three exciting Nitro Classes including Nostalgia Nitro Funny Car, Top Fuel Harleys and Nitro Altereds. In addition to the Nitro classes, the MIR fan favorite Mountain Motor Pro Stocks will return to the President's Cup. The new pro format has two rounds of qualifying on Friday night and eliminations on Saturday night. Sportsman racers will have a double Pro Am weekend with testing on Friday night and a complete Pro Am race on Saturday and Sunday. Mark this one on your calendars and stay in touch with the website for more details.

Also new for 2014 is the "No Prep" Maryland Street Outlaws heads up street car event on Saturday May 24th. Custom T's will add a third large grudge event to the schedule (May 25th, Aug 2nd and Aug 31st ). Top ET racers will get a full weekend to themselves at the new Cash Clash at the Creek on July 18-20 featuring a 10K to win race on Friday and Sunday and a huge 20K to win on Saturday.

The special event kickoff for the 2014 season will once again be the Door Wars on April 11-13. Featuring Pro Mods from the Northeast Pro Mod Association going the distance on the 1/4 mile!

The Mountain Motor Nationals on May 9-10 and the International Pro Mod Challenge at SuperChargers Showdown on September 26-27 have been dubbed "Pomonas" of MIR. Both will be Friday and Saturday events that will anchor the professional class-racing season at MIR. Both will also feature $5,000 to win Top ET races each day. These events will host the top teams in Pro Stock and Pro Mods on the full 1/4 mile and will receive the most media and press attention anywhere. With spring and fall temperatures coupled with the famous MIR prepped 1/4 mile, the records won’t stand a chance.
