Saturday  --  Oct. 16th
 
Weather messed with this one. It was cloudy, windy and cooler with rain approaching. We called Junior Dragsters to the lanes and to their credit 42 racers completed the entire class in just over 2 hours, outstanding on their part. Cole Foskey won over Hagen Keyes. Yes we got Pro started, 40 pairs went down the track but then the light but steady rain moved in. The action stopped, the rain didn't and we had to call it a day after waiting it out for a good while. 
 
Sunday  --  Oct 17th
 
Now it was darn right chilly, temps in the 50's, gusty breezes and partly cloudy skies were with us all day. 46 Junior Dragsters started at 9 am sharp, with 100 % buybacks they completed two rounds in less than an hour. At 11:30 they were done, Isabella Ritchey won over Roman Balaska, Madison Stotler took third.

Bike had 35 entries, Mike Shulz over Tom Dunham, Wes Garman on his sled took third place. 353 racers competed and finished up the event at 7:30 pm. 
 
Final thoughts, many good things and people I'll miss but here goes. The whole SBRA thing works, all seven tracks were well represented, the racers, track owners, team captains the race fans and sponsors all make this a really good event each year. $72,000.00 purse is really good without sky high entry fees or expensive buy backs. Track prep / maintenance excellent. Timeliness of racing each day was right on time for each day of racing activities. Having Gary Gore and Hayne Dominick with us is always a big plus. Great performances by all the racers, numerous .000 lights and dead zero runs. Minimal clean up / down time for the 7,000 plus runs and 1,700 entries over 5 days. How about the points, it was once again Team Beaver Springs with 93, Mason Dixon 85, Eastside 65, Summerduck 60, Keystone 58. South Mountain 55 and US 13 49. Now lastly for the Mason Dixon track staff starting at the top. Elmer and Cathy Wachter who own the track, Trish, Cheryl, Don, Bub and Becky, Karen, Jasmine, Linda, Jess, Brittany, Suzette, Troy, Jake, Scott, Walt, Fran, Josh, Ronnie, Justin, Lance, Connor, Hannah, Angie, Joe and Ashley. Also helping with the announcing was Courtney Suders, Ray Thurston IV, Steve Dickey, Rick Zeigler, John Binkle. Tony Tumberello and Elmer too. Joe Martz and Brian Kuhn did the invocation before our National Anthem each day. I'm sure I missed something or someone, an age thing I guess. Anyhow, another great SBRA Bracket Finals in the books!
 
See you this Saturday for a Street Nite race, time runs start at 11:30 am, see you at Mason Dixon Dragway!  

Saturday  --  Sept. 25th

Ed was here for the first time ever, making the long trip from north Jersey. Hopefully he'll run with us next year.

It was Randy Peer over points leader Rodney Eichelberger in a dead close final, both cars in the low 9.20s. Shawn Miller took third. Butler Performance of Tennessee, an all Pontiac engine builder and related parts business supplied racers with shirts and $10.00 foodstand coupons. Thanks Butler Racing Engines. Now the $50.00 to enter $1,000.00 to win all run race. Michael Shoop jumped in dad's car and won in the final over the no-box car of Dan Slusher, Mark Harbaugh was third. Of note, Dan went the furthest in the no-box entries and picked up an extra $200.00 bonus. Kind of a small turnout, about 60 cars total, still fun though, we finished up at 3.40 pm.

This was a well attended Test & Tune event, the last one for the season and what a night. 130 racers with the usual mix of street cars, full on drag cars, junior dragsters and bikes were out on the track from 6 to 10 pm. A huge thanks to all that were with us, probably the most Friday night race fans all season too. Excellent night!

Harley Ely the big winner, Nick McGowin was runnerup, Cameron Bauman and Nathan Mendenhall were the semi racers, chalk up two victories for girls this weekend! We got the big cars going at 11:30 am. Pro had an even 100 cars and bikes in round one. Well, we've been predicting for a good while that a Bike would finally win the Pro class and it happened, Brian Moore was sharp all day on his Suzuki and in the final he he beat Danny Hoff in a Tesla.

Notes on the weekend. Thanks to all the extra money thrown in for our Junior Dragster drivers and to Mutt & Jeff Promotions for the $300.00 additional money that went to Super car winners and semi racers. Again our race staff did a great job all weekend keeping things moving, giving racers a great track and our to foodstand gang doing their excellent work as they always do. How about Toni Smith singing the National Anthem on Monday, WOW, Awesome!! Our EMT Joe Bradley got to make his first drag strip passes. He made two easy ones, the  last one was in the 14's at 106 mph. I think he liked going down the track. The Mason Dixon deal really is a "family", it starts at the top with Wachter family, the staff, racers, race fans and our sponsors. This is a good place to work and race! We are here Saturday, Street Nite and Sunday an all run $1,000.00 to win event and Outlaw Pontiacs. See you this weekend at Mason Dixon Dragway! 

Friday  --  Aug. 27th
 
This was to be a Test & Tune night but weather again won out, rain hit before the track was to open, lightning and storms were in the area forcing us to cancel out the racing. 
 
Saturday  --  Aug. 28th
 
This was a Test & Tune event starting at 2 pm. With threatening weather again in the forecast the turnout was down some but we did have 51 cars making many passes. About 4:45 light rain rain moved in then a few minutes later it got serious and the rain dumped on us. We did try to run the $500.00 no entry fee race earlier even though we were several cars short of the 60 car minimum. Weather sort of won out on us again.
 
Sunday  --  Aug. 29th
 
Gloomy, yes, low clouds, humid but no rain! First off a big thanks to all that came out to the 24th Annual Mid Maryland Ford event. We had 101 show cars, Mt. Lena Pool group did their food stand deal with great breakfast and lunch menus, 100 Ford race cars made round one of eliminations, there were many parts vendors and a good group of race fans too. The drag racing got underway at 11:30 with everyone making two time runs. In Super it was Cory Maloney getting the win over Mark Decker. Pro Ford was won by John Maloney over Kristen Suders. Sportsman was won by Greg Connors over Chris Waters. Trophy Ford was won by Mike Socks over Hailey Bowles. In the Mustang class it was Paul Kuhn over Robert Kirkland. The last run of the day was a grudge race, Jen Decker in her Mustang against husband Mark Decker in his dragster, Jen got the win as Mark went red, probably a smart move on his part. Good racing by all, an overall good event. We finished up at 4 pm. 
 
This weekend is the big Labor Day race, Test & Tune Friday night, SBRA points races, Sat. Sun. and Mon. Check the flyer for all the details, see you this weekend at Mason Dixon Dragway!

Saturday  --  Aug. 21st
 
This was our Street Nite event for August that was well attended though threats of rain / storms were in the forecast. Quick 16 had 29 entries vying for a start in the field that had a fast 5.40 bump spot. In the final Mitch Willingham won it over Kalvin Kline, Darlene Staub and Joe Richmond were the semi racers. The 5.90 Index cars had a good field of entries with Pat Hahn winning over Will Woodward. 6.50 Index had 23 entries with Les Tobery winning over Brian Lesher. The 7.10 index class the winner was Randall McNamee over Garret Suders. In the Dial-in classes it was Nancy Kovak in a good one over Gary Kelican. A word on these two, Nancy about owns this class in her mid 11 second Nova and Gary Kelican was out for the first time this season driving his high 9 second Maverick as if he'd been racing every weekend, nice work by these two racers, oh it was Gary's 74 birthday today as well. Sportsman was won by Brett Barney with Mike Cleary as the runnerup. Drive-in Street had truck 870, missed his name but will add it later over Joe Myers. This was some really fine racing all night, we finished up at 8:30 pm. Again a good turnout considering the crappy weather forecast, 142 racers and a decent number of race fans participated. 
 
Sunday  --  August 22nd
 
This was another SBRA points race. We hate to keep talking about the bad weather but sure enough tropical storm Henri dumped rain all over eastern Pennsylvania and everywhere east of the track in Maryland. Many tracks were rained out though overcast we got underway. 21 Junior Dragsters made the first time run right at 9 am sharp. Dylan Moore was on it all six rounds winning the final over McKenna Brinkley, Wyatt Coffee took third place. We had several Eastside Dragway Junior racers with us today. Really good Junior Dragster racing from start to finish. The big cars and bikes took the track at 11:30 am. Super had Randy Krause in his S & W dragster winning over Dahrl Clark in the "Felix the Cat" Dodge Dart. Justin Crider had a good third place finish, 53 Super cars made round one, good turn out. Pro Driver was 62 cars and bikes in the opening round, in the end Brandon Skelly was on kill each round winning over world champ bike racer Brian Canoles. Ken Dick and Brian Lind were the semi racers. In the Al's Body Shop Trophy class, Mike Fenslau won over Caleb Cunningham, each getting the "Xmas Tree" trophy. 
 
Of note, yeah, the topic of weather. We had some very light / mist sprinkles the last half hour or so of racing, the track stayed good and sure enough as soon as the last pair went down the track, it got serious and started to rain steadily. We couldn't have raced 5 more minutes. A huge thanks to our racers as we "politely" encouraged them to keep it moving or we couldn't have finished the race. The staff....we had some on vacation and several did different jobs and did a great job anyway. Suzette and her daughter Kathryn worked the food stand filling in. Mason Dixon Dragway really is a great place to work and race. Thanks to all that were with us this weekend! This weekend, Friday nite Test & Tune and another one Saturday 2 to 6pm with the no entry fee race. Sunday the big Ford race and show. Check the website for all the details. See you this weekend at Mason Dixon Dragway!

Friday  --  Aug. 13th
 
Yeah it was Friday the 13th, acted like it too. Rain showers, storms and lightning rolled in just before we were set to open up. We had to cancel.
 
Saturday  --  Aug. 14th
 
Weather entered in this race also, but we got the entire program in though we had three rain shower delays that slowed us down a bit. Besides weather issues we had our biggest ever VW race. Show and race cars, vendors and and race fans rolled in early to get set up for the car show and the drag racing. Right on time at 11:30 am we got underway with the VW race cars numbering 110 entries in seven classes. We also had our Pro Stick racers with us and they brought along 48 racers. Everyone made two time runs and then we went racing. Limited Street was won by P Santos over J Paglioua. All Motor had J Abrams over A Fiasserto. Pro Mod had C Shaeffer over the low qualifier S Hawes. Steve ran a 5.38 @136 mph in his first time shot, low ET and best MPH of the day. The ASA racers had B Robertson with a rocket fast 6.17 @ 112 mph over J Winhoven. Pro class was won by A Dalton, D Wegner took runnerup. Super Pro was won by C Woolar over B McKean. Lastly Super Stock was won by J Farguhar over W Farquhar. In Pro Stick Mark Charcalla cut a .016 light and dead on 8.68 to win over Dave Slusher, Andy Stone took third place.  
 
Thoughts on this one. A huge thanks for a great job of promoting and handling the VW portion of the event  goes to Scott Pocaro. He has done an outstanding job each year that we've hosted this event, it grows bigger each year. I talked to him last week, he'd predicted 110 VW racers and that's exactly how many competed in round one. The racing itself was great, nice looking, well prepared cars that were fast and very little breakage or oildowns occurred all day. The car show part had great and some unusual VW models on hand. Our race fans were out in huge numbers to support this event. Hats off to the Pro Stick racers and their captain Eric Kitchen. The usual, fast paced, hard launching, wheel standing stick cars did their job round after round. Pro Stick is a good fit with our VW friends for sure. Our staff....Great job by all, the rain delays were handled and track was good to go quickly, track prep / maintenance was excellent, food stand staff were swamped all day but the kept pace right til the last pair went down the track. We had announce help from Steve Dickey, he's very knowledgeable about both VWs and Pro Stick cars. He always adds something good to any day he's here. Oh, we finished up 7:30 pm, what a day!  
 
Sunday  --  Aug. 15th
 
This was a Test & Tune event starting at 11:30 am going til 4 pm. 62 cars, bikes and Junior Dragsters made plenty of trips down the track. Brand new Junior Dragster racer Luke Stern made all his license runs look easy, his dad Jason and grandpa Matt were with him as the crew members. Well done Luke. At 2 pm, we did our no entry fee $500.00 to the winner 1/8 mile race. Dahrl Clark won out over Mike Rodgers in the final. Eldon "JR" Baum in his 68 SS/AH Hemi Dart made the first runs since converting to a 4 speed manual transmission. You would think the learning curve would be steep....not so, first pass, an 8.71 @ a lifting 141 mph. Next and final pass, 8.53 @153 mph with a 1.20 sixty ft. time. Really fast for shakedown runs on a warm and humid day. All went good today, we did finish up right at 4pm. Great weekend other than losing Friday night racing. Ok, Test & Tune Friday, Street Nite Saturday and SBRA race Sunday. See you at Mason Dixon Dragway this weekend!

He had all the track staff in his winners circle photo, a nice gesture on his part.....outstanding work Todd! We finished up about 4:45 pm. Great racing by all all today.

With 14 entries it was Shelby Nick winning out over Eric Bowles, Miles Raffa and Cameron Bauman were the semifinalists. The big cars were next, 58 entries in the Pro class with Rocky Moore winning over Troy Gerhart in the final, taking third place was Heather Boyd. In Super we had 44 entries with Dahryl Clark over Dylan Moore. These two are as good as it gets in Super, great driving all day. Jason Amey with another good outing took third place. Of the 44 entries, nine were dragsters, great racing in our Super class. Over in Al's Body Shop Trophy it was Josh Sisk over Alexis Crawford in a Camaro final. We finished up at 4:30 pm. Real good racing all day long, a fun day.
 
This weekend, Test & Tune Friday night, Summit ET series racing Sat. and Sun. No Junior Drasters as they will be in New York for the Division 1 Junior Dragster ET finals. Hope to see everyone this weekend at Mason Dixon Dragway!

This was day 2 of our SBRA weekend. Junior Dragsters took the track right at 9 am with a 20 car field. Great final.....Miles Raffa went .016 at the start to hold off A J Heiner who was close with an .023 light. Really good well run final! Cameron Boyd took third place.

Pro with 64 entries had the same two in the final as yesterday....same result too. Ken Dick winning over John Binkle in the final, what's the odds of this happening on consecutive days? Fred Johns and Mark Harbaugh were the semi drivers. In Super it was Michael Shoop over Mike Daymude in a spectacular final. Shoop was .0001 and .001 off the dial while Daymude was .005 at the tree and on his dial. Dead close, nearly a perfect race, doesn't get better than this final! And Jason Amey had a good day with his 3rd place finish. In Al's Body Shop Trophy it was Alexis Crawford winning over T J Everly, both getting the Xmas tree trophies provided by Al's Body Shop.

Saturday  --  July 17th
 
Another real hot and humid day with storms predicted for the early evening. No doubt the less than great weather forecast kept a lot of racers away but we got underway right at 2:30 pm with all the racers getting two qualifying time shots for this Street Nite event. As round one got underway the storms were heading our way with lots of lightning in the air. We completed round one and as round two started we had to stop the action. Way to much lightning with the fast moving storm closing in we halted the racing, not long after, rain arrived and that was it.
We tried!
 
This weekend, Test & Tune Friday and SBRA events Saturday and Sunday, see you this weekend at Mason Dixon Dragway!

Friday  --  July 9th
 
This was a Test & Tune event getting underway at 6 pm. It was really hot and steamy with storms in the forecast no doubt contributing to a smaller than usual turnout. Around 7:30 pm we had a brief rain shower that only took us down for about 20 minutes. Once track drying was done we kept racing. Stu Beaden and his Top Sportsman Camaro made some test hits, the last one netting a 4.67 slowing to a 136 mph top end as the car lost high gear. When totally sorted out this car will be real fast. Max and Jane Naylor were helping the Beaden team again on this visit. Max and Jane were the former owners of Numidia Raceway for many years, love having them with us anytime they can be here. Rich Lyle's 63 Pontiac Tempest Promod made one test pass just before we finished up, this car is a wicked ride. Just a short hit was made after long and loud smoky burn out. We concluded the night on Rich's pass at 10 pm.
 
A NOTE FROM THE TRASH MAN....an ever increasing amount of glass bottle is appearing in the trash, I do not need this job and you are risking it for all racers and spectators that this track may go away... I am to the point that I would rather do things other than cater to those who do not follow the rules....getting very close to losing  a place to play.

Saturday  --  July 10th
 
A Summit ET series event kicking off with Junior Dragsters at 12:30 pm. The weather was better, less humid and slightly cooler than Friday. Only six cars due to most already at the preliminary races at Bristol Tn. which is hosting the Eastern Regional event. In the final A. J. Heiner won over Cameron Bauman, Cameron Proctor took third place. Now the big cars. We started them at 2 pm. with Outlaw Pontiacs that had a 22 car field. In the final it was Rodney Eichleberger winning his third event of the year, he won over SS/GT car driven by Chet Fincke. Third place was Craig Berkheimer, the original founder of the eastern division of the Outlaw Pontiac group that he presided over in the beginning in 1999. Craig had not raced for 17 years and yet made five rounds of racing with this tough bunch in a borrowed car. Great to have Craig and his wife Melanie from New Oxford Pa. racing again! Troy Tribby was in attendance along with Tom and Kim Bunty of York, Pa. helping out the Pontiac racers. Joel Larkin the west coast original founder of the Outlaw Pontiac Series raced with us, he now lives a bit closer in Mansfield Ohio. Now for the Summit classes, in Super it was Colby Imes winning over Dave Slusher Jr. Pro had Ken Dick over Mark Harbaugh. Sportsman had Dave Toms over Carlos DeJesus. Mike Fenslau won another Trophy class over Richie Burns. Junior Street had one entry making a bunch of passes, Justin Jones with dad Joe as the co-pilot. We finished up about 7:15 pm. Good racing all day long.
 
Sunday  --  July 11th
 
We started on time at 9 am with again six Junior Dragsters. It was really hot and humid for this race, worse than Friday, more storms predicted for later in the day. With Juniors we ran a double elimination race. You were still in til your second loss. Stretched things out a bit and fun for the six racers. In the final it Steven Morgan, no losses against Miles Raffa, one loss. Miles needed to win two straight and sure enough he won the first to force another face off with Steven. This time Steven Morgan won, Miles Raffa the runner up. Now the big cars, winners to get the Wally trophies. Super had Mike Hoff in his 4.80s dragster win over Mark Gray. Pro had Rocky Moore over Ray Thurston IV. Sportsman had Mike Fenslau winning his first ever Wally over Garrett Suders. Justin Jones and dad Joe again ran more Junior Street passes. Again we were pushing along to beat storms that eventually rolled through as I drove back to Pa. We finished just about 3 pm.  
 
This coming Friday, Test & Tune 6 to 10 pm, Street Nite on Saturday! See you at Mason Dixon Dragway this weekend!


Friday  --  July 2nd
 
This was our Friday Nite Test & Tune event, much nicer and cooler than mid week, great evening for being at the track. 80 cars made numerous runs, a great mix of newer cars, Mercedes, BMWs, Audis, late model Mustangs, Camaros and Challengers too. Some of the weekends Summit ET racers also made passes. We had a really good turnout of race fans, a really good evening, we finished up at 10 pm.
 
Saturday  --  July 3rd
 
We got our Junior Dragsters underway at 12:30 pm with 22 entries on another low 80 degree day. We had several cars from Eastside Raceway and sure enough in the final Hunter Crawford from Staunton Va. squared off against Miles Raffa, Hunter scoring the win in a good race. Gavin Cramer took third place. Extra money from Rudy Transportation and an anonymous Pro class racer upped the winner and runnerup purse plus an extra $25.00 went to the best losing package, Hunter Crawford got the money in his first round loss. Thanks to those the added money to our Junior racers. At 3:00 pm we got time runs underway for the big cars, 95 Pro cars, 88 Super cars, 18 Trophy cars got their runs in. We got part way through round one when a heavy rain shower moved in and soaked the place, track drying efforts for an hour half or so got us close but just not good enough to resume racing. We called it 7 pm as started to sprinkle again. We tried.
 
Sunday  --  July 4th
 
Junior Dragsters took the track at 9:30 am, just a bit warmer but still great for July. 25 entries raced with Dylan Moore winning over Connor Boyd, Miles Raffa was third. More money came from Rudys Transportation, our anonymous Pro racer, Steve Henry's Coppermine Stump Removal company, The Mutt & Jeff Promotions team and Semper Fi Transport, Shelby Nick's grandfathers company.

Saturday  --  June 19th
 
This was our all GM car event and again it was really hot and steamy with temps again the lower 90's. We had a fair amount of show cars, apparently we were bucking several other fairly local car shows causing a lower  car count of show vehicles. We started the drag racing at 11 am, in the Super class Michael Shoop won over Clayton Garber. Pro was the biggest field, Chris Crawford won it over Nick Lindeman, Chad Pauley and Darious  Wenger were the semi racers. Trophy was won by Mike Younker over Mike McClary. Corvette/Firebird/Camaro had Doug Whipkey over Mike Fenslau. "G" Body was won by Cody Clites over runner up Chuck Ball. Lastly S-10/Blazer had James Knipple over William Via.

Travis Hill beating Tony Bonano with Brian Henry and Paul James Sr. the semi racers. How about Mike Fenslau's dad visiting his son from Michigan, he got to drive the SS Chevy in the no entry fee race. He won the first round and ran a career best 12.05 @ 115 mph. Any kind of decent air and the 11 second timeslips would have been recorded. Nice Fathers Day present. Overall good day.
 
Friday  --  Rocking Chair Nationals Eve  --  June 26th
 
A great Test & Tune night, people rolling in all evening for the big event the next day, some unloaded and made passes, 122 entries in all.

Let's do the racing part first, Super had Dahrl Clark over Shawn Barrett in a 40 car field, Pro was won by Mark Harbaugh over Kalley Kline in a 61 car field. Outlaw Pontiacs had Mark Harbaugh winning this class too over a redlighting John Gunter. There were 16 Pontiacs in this class. Nostalgia Eliminator was an 80 car field with Earl Sager's Nova with new gorgeous paint work over Jonathan Engleman. MANDRA had 27 cars, in the final Mark Santee's Comet ran dead on and it was a good thing too as Bill Smith had a slightly better light but broke out by .002, close and well run race. Lastly the Pro Stick gang, 64 entries strong had Andy Charcalla getting the single when Colton Kirchner's car developed an engine fire coming up the return road after his semi final win. Great racing we finished up about 9 pm. 
 
Now for everything else. What a turnout, the show car field was packed 172 entries, we also had 288 racers competing. In fact parking was tough and we opted to turn all racing to 1/8 mile as many cars were way down in the shut down area field, a good call there. We did one time run and no buy backs. Race fans were everywhere, all seemed enjoy the whole event. We had help from Mt. Aetna Fire Co. serving breakfast sandwiches and lunch, they sold all there stuff mid afternoon, Our food stand staff served everyone right til the end. They were kept hopping all day. Cheryl's Shirt Shack nearly sold out the event shirts, everybody busy all day long. Track prep / maintenance excellent as always, only one oil down to clean up. A big thanks to Hayne Dominick and Gary Gore their help and promoting the event. Steve Dickey announced a lot in the earlier part of the day doing a great job, Bill Pratt former long time announcer at MIR also announced the exhibition cars, a good guy and very knowledgeable too. Butch Mori's Chevwagon ran an incredible 5.82 @ 120 mph. The Funny Car match race had both cars in the mid 4's @ 160 mph. Rick Osborn's 38 Special did the big wheel stands. Awesome show from all in the exhibition group. At the morning awards / interview session many got their plaques and talked to the crowd, Gary Gore handling most of the "mic" work, I did some too. Many Funny Car teams represented and Modified Eliminator and Super Stock drivers, crew  and family members were in attendance. Very fun day. Will certainly look forward to the next years event. Got to give a shout out to the Wachter family that owns the track, they put in the hard work, skills and money to keep Mason Dixon Dragway alive so we have a place to go drag racing! I know I missed some stuff here, I'll add it in later.

This weekend it's all Junior Dragsters and Junior Street, both days, see you at Mason Dixon Dragway!
A Note From The Owner..... I am still disturbed at the lack of respect several racers and spectators give for the rules of no glass bottles.  If I have to make an example of those I find bringing in bottles I will, I will cancel the street events for the classes I find not following these rules. As it looks now there are at least two street classes that may go by the wayside.

Saturday  --  April 17th
 
This was a Test & Tune event under cloudy, windy and cool temps. that reached the mid 50's later in the day. Jace Warner made his Junior dragster licensing runs with no problems.

This was a Test & Tune event along with a $1,000.00 to win no entry fee Gamblers Race. Just before we got underway we had a special match race with our track manager Jake Landes in his 650 hp supercharged Corvette against his dad Chris Lil in his 485 hp Dodge Challenger. Jake got there first with a 10.65 @129mph and Chris followed with a tire spinning pass but did log a 109 mph top end speed. The first time they've ever run each other, good to see this happen. We started on time a 11am under cloudy skies but temps near 60 degrees with numerous test & tune 1/4 passes then went to round one of our 1/8 mile Gamblers Race. Things got a little unusual as we had three oil downs, two were coolant one an oil related deal and it took awhile to them clean up. In the Gamblers it was Frank Falter IV in his "Candy Man" dragster winning over Rick Wenger, Dahryl Clark and Keith Lehman were the semi racers. We had 70 entries and stuck around a little over an hour longer than scheduled wrapping this up at 4:10 pm. 
 
Well, the 2020 season is over. With losing all of March, April and May races once we got going we had great support from our racers, their family and crew members then eventually our race fans. Many races were well attended especially the five day SBRA event in October with a record one day car count on Saturday of 543 entries. A big thanks to all the supported us, racers and spectators, sponsors and Mason Dixon staff and owners, we made a messed up year work!! Keep checking our website / facebook pages for updates, schedule etc. through out the winter. I will certainly miss my racers and co-workers in the off season. Everyone please stay safe, have a great Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years holidays and get ready for a better 2021!!

Message from Track Operator, Still having troubles with glass bottles so the 2021 Season will impart a rate increase for entry for those racers and crew members that feel they must have glass bottles to exist, maybe a nipple on the end and a security blanket would explain their need for glass. Thank all of the racers that enjoy a local track with a family atmosphere, It is all made possible by the great group of people working at the track.  I appreciate their efforts in making events work smoothly and am looking forward to working with them in the future.
Happy Thanksgiving to all, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  Keep an EYE on the website for upcoming news.

Saturday  --  Nov. 14th

We started right at 9:30 am sharp with our Junior Dragsters with 13 entries.

The track worked great all day long even the when temps dropped quick after sunset, 42 degrees at the end. The racers and staff did a great job keeping the event moving at a quick pace. Steve Dickey was with us announcing with Elmer and I all day adding a lot to the event. A good, fun day, great racing and everyone was fast too. Also long time racer, Marvin Lucas stopped by to see the great show. He is 85 years young and still loves our sport, good to see him again. We did opt to cancel Sunday as the forecast was not looking good, and sure enough, high winds and afternoon rains rolled in. A good call. 

This Saturday is it, a limited 75 car Test & Tune, 11am to 3pm finishes out the 2020 race season. If over 60 Entries there will be a FREE $1000 Gamblers Race

Super got down to six cars that made a 6 way split of $430.00 each. Pro had Travis Hill winning over Danny Perry. We finished the 236 race entry show at 10:50 pm. Overall very good day one, was a sunny day well into the 70's. Weather no issue.

Thursday  --  Oct. 15th

Day two started earlier. Weather again sunny in the 70's. We managed to get most of the Gamblers race done we stopped on the weekday deal at 11 pm. splitting money to those still in the race. Very big Thursday car count, 363 entered round one.

Friday  --  Oct. 16th

If we were going to have weather issues it  would be this day only, light rain was just west of the track but  never moved over us, another rain free race day. This was a huge turnout of racers in all the classes, 443 entries. At 11:00 pm we still had a lot of racers still in, we opted to split the money than go on much later. Amazing racing again.

Saturday  --  Oct. 17th

A sunny but much cooler day, temps in the low 30's over night but got to about 60 later in the day. Talk about a full house, 543 racers, a record number of entries ever at Mason Dixon, and they fit on the property too. First off new arrivals got a time run, then we went to the Race of Champions, round one. In Junior Dragster it was Eric Bowles winning over Cole Foskey, Super had Paul Burruss taking the win, Pro was won by Jeff Stewart. We then got the Gamblers races going, with the huge car count we ran til 12:30 am but still had many entries, we stopped and split money at that point. 

Sunday  --  Oct. 18th

The main event! About 400 entries from the seven tracks all racers that qualified from their home track entered this no entry fee race. The Junior Dragsters started off at 9 am, 37 entries in the end, John Henry took the win with Peyton Bunch the runnerup. Now the big cars took the track at 11:30 am In Super it was Rich Loury over Mike Anderson, Pro had Tom Lilliard over Jay Woodward and in Bike Taylor Dunham over Clay Davies. Great, close racing all day. The new guys from Summerduck Dragway won the overall points, Mason Dixon second and last years Champs, Beavers Springs Dragway third. We finished up at 7:30 pm. Hardly any down time / clean up delays for the whole day and very few all weekend. Another great SBRA Bracket finals in the books!

Kudos to many this weekend. We thank our racers and the family / crew members for their cooperation all week long. The Mason Dixon staff worked five really long days, some slept in their cars Saturday night to be ready for the early Sunday start time. All my co-workers put in a great effort to make the event work. Track owners and management made all the good calls organizing and supervising the race. Both of our new SBRA tracks really enjoyed the event it seemed. To my count that I think is pretty close we were just  15 cars short of 2,000 entries for the five days. There was a minimal of breakage or down time and super great track prep / maintenance every day. Joe Martz did the invocation each day to get us started, thanks Joe. Gary Gore of Eastside was with us all week long, Hain Dominick though not here helped us with scoring of the final day from home.  On a personal note, I missed the first three days recovering from surgery and Elmer Wachter, Steve Dickey and Courtney Suders shared announcing those three days. On Saturday and Sunday Tony Tumberello from South Mountain and again Courtney Suders announced off and on all day, I can't thank them enough, great job too! There is no doubt some mistakes / omissions in this recap will be seen here which I apologize for in advance. Anyway, another outstanding SBRA Bracket Finals!

A NOTE FROM TRACK OPERATOR, Thank all the racers for participating in the SBRA Bracket Finals, Thank those also that Parked in the proper pit areas and respected the track. Thank all that participated in the Gamblers Races. Thank the Staff for professionally acting and administering the event. We always say we should do this and that for the next years event to make it better, but at this time I am not sure there will be a next year or next time.  The rules we operate under are primarily for safety sake and when they are not adhered to I do not want to be part of that culture. I also see the writing of the keyboard cowboys complaining and condemning, but not person enough to voice their problem to the proper authority. My answer to them is to not come to a track you feel does not live up to you stringent expectations God only knows you must be perfect in all that you do. I hope your glass house is made of non shattering glass. Over the winter months I will decide the future of not only this event but also the tracks status.

This weekend a Street Nite race Sat. Oct. 24th, Sunday a Test and Tune. See you at Mason Dixon Dragway this coming weekend!  

Saturday  --  Sept. 26th


This was a SBRA double-header race that fog and drizzle held up the start time by about three hours. After hours of track drying it was finally time to go racing. Junior Dragsters kicked off the weekend with 16 cars entered. In the final, Nathan Mendenhall took the win over Carleigh Forest, Jamain Dietz and Thomas Oates took the semi spots. Now the big cars, in a Super field of 50 entries Dave Churchey took the win over Roger Lewis with Al Hite the third place driver. What a win for Dave, it was his first time out with us this year, good effort for certain. Pro Driver had 73 entries and Chris Crawford winning out over Kevin Moore and Mark Harbaugh was third. Outlaw Pontiacs were here with 16 cars in round one. Chuck Hutlzler took the win over Mike Clay. The Pontiac gang has one more race for the year in our house, Steve Dress, Rodney Eichelberger and Mike Clay all jammed up at the top of the points list, anybody's guess who the champ will be for 2020. It'll be settled on Sunday Oct. 11th. Al's Body Shop Trophy had 16 cars with Nathan Nicholson over Rocky Roach, both ended up getting the "Xmas Tree" trophies. What great racing all day and even with the late start and 188 entries we finished up at 9.35 PM. Well done all.

Sunday  --  Sept. 27th

Dylan Moore took the win over Greg Orris and Rick Wenger and Jason Day were semi racers, those four moved money around so all did well for the day.

Sunday  --  Aug. 23rd

This was again a Test & Tune event with a $500.00 to win no entry fee Gamblers Race. Since we didn't get to run our Ford event, Elmer decided that if a Ford won the race he would add another $100.00 to the pot. Of course Bobby Smith in his wheel standing Ford Mustang won over Mike Rogers with Dave Slusher Jr. the third place driver. Another good event and again it was 90 degrees late in the day as rain was moving in right at 4 pm. A big thanks to all that came out this weekend. 

We have a Test & Tune Friday night and Street Nite on Saturday. See you this weekend at Mason Dixon Dragway!
Friday  --  Aug. 14th

This was a well attended Test & Tune event on the eve of our VW and Pro-Stick race. We had numerous VWs and Pro-Stick racers and other full on race cars and street cars making many passes on this cloudy overcast evening. Low et. for the VWs was Steve Hawes in his air cooled turbo bug, he ripped a 5.36 @ 136 mph pass. He later ran a 5.39 @ 135 mph. A bullet for sure. Pro-Stick's Tim Riggleman managed a 7.91 @ 172 mph in his small block Mopar. We ran a 16 car Hi-Roller VW class, a 55 yr. old and up class and a Quick 4 also. Good racing, we finished just after 10 pm.

Saturday  --  Aug. 15th

We started out ok, weather very cloudy, dreary and occasional light mist and sprinkles slowed us down badly as it took from 11 am til 3 pm to get in one qualifier / time run. It was a stop and start affair but finally we got under way. We were able to complete three rounds of VW racing and two Pro-Stick rounds, the VW classes got to semi finals in all but one class and Pro-Stick got to 13 remaining cars still in the game. Finally about 7 pm a steady rain did us in, we called it a day. A very nice turnout of racers in both VW and Pro-Stick were in competition, considering the threatening forecasts of rain all week, we did well both days. 

A big shout out to Scott Pacaro who runs / promotes the VW shows with us each year.  Many of the VW racers travel a good distance to this race and again they showed up in big numbers despite the poor weather forecast. Thanks Scott for your hard work. The Mason Dixon crew gets a tip of the hat for all the work repeatedly drying and re-prepping the track after each rain shower and car oildowns. That was a lot of work and time consuming too. Bill Smith did the invocation and his wife Toni did a fabulous job singing the National Anthem as always! Considering weather issues we still had a really good event. This Saturday and Sunday are Test & Tune events, if there is 100 + cars we will have a $1,000.00 to win race, no entry fee. See you Saturday and Sunday at Mason Dixon Dragway!  

Friday  --  Aug. 7th
This was to be a Test & Tune event but rain and thunder rolled in about 4 pm. and soaked the place causing the racing to be cancelled.

Saturday  --  Aug. 8th

This was our Street Nite race with the Md. Performance Center Real Street cars running with us. Qualifying got underway at 4 pm. Eliminations got underway about 8 pm. starting with Real Street first. Mike Berry ripped a 5.03 right off the trailer to get things going, four cars ran in the 5.0 range with sixty ft. times as fast as 1.16. In the final Mike Berry in the quickest car was a bit late on the tree and Shane Stymeist got the win. Justin Bowmaker and Steve Kent were the semi racers. There were 14 entries in the class. Great racing from them. In Quick 16 it was the Dave and Patti Smith entry winning over Jerry Williams in the final, Cory Carper and Mitch Willingham were the semifinalists. Five cars ran in the 4's and the bump spot was a 5.62. In 5.90 Index Mike Shoop won over Will Woodyard, a 14 car field. In the 6.50 Index group Les Tobery won over Darrell Law. There 24 6.50 cars tonite a great turnout. We also had good fields of Pro, Limited and Drive In Street also. Great racing all night long. We did have a couple of bigger cleanups and some much smaller ones also so we did run late. We thank our racers and their crew members for the good turnout for this race. Outstanding track prep for the really fast Real Street and Quick 16 cars was evident, several 1.03 sixty ft. times turned in from the faster Quick 16 cars. An overall really good event.

This weekend, a Test and Tune on Friday night and on Saturday our 6th annual VW race and show with the Pro Stick racers added to the event. Will be a good one. See you this weekend at Mason Dixon Dragway! 

Friday  --  July 31st


This was another Test & Tune event on another very warm evening. Not a real big turnout but all the racers made plenty of passes from 6 pm til 10 pm. Greg Dahl's Harley ran four passes, 7.99, 8.06, 7,88 and lastly his fastest run on this bike ever, a 7.83 @ 175 mph. A real rocket for sure. Mike Balch's Harley also made several sorting out passes, low 10's @ 140 mph. Both these Harley riders make the trip from Uniontown Pa. Wade Farner and Nathan Nicholson were getting ready our 6.50 Index class on Street Nite, Aug. 8th with 6.50 passes. Steve Jeffers had his great looking 67 Camaro going into the 9's on several passes.

Friday  --  Aug. 14th

This was a well attended Test & Tune event on the eve of our VW and Pro-Stick race. We had numerous VWs and Pro-Stick racers and other full on race cars and street cars making many passes on this cloudy overcast evening. Low et. for the VWs was Steve Hawes in his air cooled turbo bug, he ripped a 5.36 @ 136 mph pass. He later ran a 5.39 @ 135 mph. A bullet for sure. Pro-Stick's Tim Riggleman managed a 7.91 @ 172 mph in his small block Mopar. We ran a 16 car Hi-Roller VW class, a 55 yr. old and up class and a Quick 4 also. Good racing, we finished just after 10 pm.

Saturday  --  Aug. 15th

We started out ok, weather very cloudy, dreary and occasional light mist and sprinkles slowed us down badly as it took from 11 am til 3 pm to get in one qualifier / time run. It was a stop and start affair but finally we got under way. We were able to complete three rounds of VW racing and two Pro-Stick rounds, the VW classes got to semi finals in all but one class and Pro-Stick got to 13 remaining cars still in the game. Finally about 7 pm a steady rain did us in, we called it a day. A very nice turnout of racers in both VW and Pro-Stick were in competition, considering the threatening forecasts of rain all week, we did well both days. 

A big shout out to Scott Pacaro who runs / promotes the VW shows with us each year.  Many of the VW racers travel a good distance to this race and again they showed up in big numbers despite the poor weather forecast. Thanks Scott for your hard work. The Mason Dixon crew gets a tip of the hat for all the work repeatedly drying and re-prepping the track after each rain shower and car oildowns. That was a lot of work and time consuming too. Bill Smith did the invocation and his wife Toni did a fabulous job singing the National Anthem as always! Considering weather issues we still had a really good event. This Saturday and Sunday are Test & Tune events, if there is 100 + cars we will have a $1,000.00 to win race, no entry fee. See you Saturday and Sunday at Mason Dixon Dragway!  


This was a Test & Tune event that got underway with temps in the 90's and despite the heat a pretty good turnout. Everyone made many passes but around 9 pm a big storm with a lot of lightning was coming toward us and with the lightning strikes getting close we stopped racing a bit early at 9:30 pm. Still a pretty good Test & Tune night.

Saturday --  July 25th

The Junior Dragsters kicked off the Summit ET Series racing at 12:30 pm. A J Heiner won over Cameron Boyd and Conner Boyd in his first season racing took third place.

Again a big thanks to the track staff, from tech to staging lane crew, starting line crew, gate staff, EMT, time slip booth, foodstand, fuel trailer, Cheryl's Shirt Shack staff and to those of us inside the both starting line buildings and office and of course the management staff too.

Saturday  --  May 23rd
Finally….We have gotten the 2020 racing season underway. First off we want to thank all our racers, their crew members, Mason Dixon staff and Elmer and Kathy Wachter for hanging in there during the long delay in getting underway this season due to the Corona virus ordeal. Everyone at the track both days cooperated with the guide lines set down for us to race in as safe manner as possible. Great job to all that participated. Here’s how we ran the weekend. Racers signed up online for either a morning or afternoon session on at Saturday or the one afternoon session on Sunday. We allowed 50 racers each session. We had a great mix of full on race cars, street cars, Junior dragsters, bikes and Jr. Street cars also. The track went from good to excellent very quickly. Ask Bill Smith, his Pro-Stick Pinto ran a personal best 9.55 @ 137 mph two runs back to back. Connor Boyd licensed his Junior Dragster, he drove great both days, got in many laps, his lights got better as the two days wound down, a 16.45 @ 37 mph was his best pass made later on Sunday. Overall an excellent day and yeah the weather was ok, partly cloudy high 60’s, not bad. We finished up at 7 pm.
Sunday  --  May 24th
A cloudy and cooler day but again, no rain. We started at 11 am. Another mix of cars and bikes, Junior dragsters made many runs today. Was the track good? Kermit Garnett on his turbo Suzuki ran a 4.85 @ 141 mph 1/8 mile pass, Bill Smith again ran quick, a 9.57 @ 137 mph. Lester Holtzapple’s Corvette now runs 9.70’s with a new engine, way quicker than last year. Everyone made many passes and the track worked great as always. We finished up at 4 pm. 

Next weekend, we will again do a Test & Tune event on Saturday May 30th  and Sunday May 31st with just one session each day. More details to follow on the website by mid-week. It’s REALLY good to be back!!! See you next weekend at Mason Dixon Dragway!  


Saturday  --  Nov. 23rd
 
We have to say the weather played into this weekend in a big way. When I arrived at the track at 9:30 am it was sunny, high 30's and almost no wind but quickly that changed. As we got ready to kick things off with our Junior dragsters it clouded up and gusty winds moved in and now it  was plainly cold. Temp only hit a high 41 degrees. No doubt that hurt the turnout today.  Now the racing, we had nine hearty Junior Dragster drivers, family and their crews participating. Mary Elizabeth Bannister got the win over Ryan Ely, semi racers were Landon Palmer and Carleigh Forrest. By about 1 PM the big cars took the track. We opted to go with one time run only and go straight to round one. In Super it was a father / daughter final. Steve Whitman won over his daughter Carrie Whitman. Pro Driver had Troy Gerhart over Dave Clinedinst, Mike Rodgers was third. Sportsman was won by Kevin Barron over Mike Fenslau. Finally Trophy had Greg Orris over Mike Fenslau. Of note, John Dickson made the long tow from Rockaway N.J. to run with us in Pro and Sportsman, thanks for racing with us today. We finished up about 3:00 PM. As I left the track it started to rain, good call moving the program along. Right as we were getting close to end we cancelled Sunday's race, another good call, it rained and snowed in the morning, would have taken us out for sure.
 
Can't believe the 2019 racing season is over. I thinks we'll all miss what we do nine months a year pretty quickly, though a break at the holidays is good. Keep checking our website for the 2020 schedule, it's already coming together. Please be safe in the off season, Happy Holidays to all!

Bits from OUR Pits...... written by: Mike Bassin

This would have been a Test & Tune day but temps in the low 20's in the morning and only in the high 30's later forced us to cancel the event.

Something really special happened today, Taylor Everson made several passes in her late grandfather Terry Schwartz's 40 Chevy coupe, a best of 12.07 @ 110 mph. She had never raced before but with help from Terry Eirckson, she quickly figured it out making about 6 passes, each one quicker as the day went on. She's keeping the memory ailve! Well done! A big shout out to the Cactoctin Fish and Game Association for putting up a food tent,  serving over the top great, breakfast sandwiches, pit beef and ham, Md. Crab soup, pie etc. Profits made help to support their youth shooting programs, come back and do this again next year!

Saturday  --  Oct. 26th
 
This was a Test & Tune event to start at noon and go to 4 PM. Sadly the weather folks got this one wrong, no rain predicted til early evening but we had sprinkles just before start time and we were delayed about a half an hour. 47 cars and bikes made mostly three runs til we had an oil down and more sprinkles that eventually turned to a steady rain that forced us to cancel out about 3 PM. Racers that had two or less runs got rain checks for a future Test & Tune day.
 
This weekend on Saturday the Stock / Super Stocks will have a Gamblers race and there is a Test & Tune event along with it, start time noon til 4 PM.

Now the notes on the 2019 SBRA event. Yes, we lost two days. The right call was made on not racing Sunday, as I type this, it's raining here and at the track, a cold soaker too. No way we could race today. A shout out to Mason Dixon staff and owners. Everybody worked well all three days. We had a great track, the clean ups we had, luckily were smaller but were quickly cleaned up with minimal down time. We kept cars going at a good, fast pace. Our food staff staff kept everyone fed, race fuel was available all day long our "Shirt Shack" open all the days. Our track photographer team, Bub and Becky Casto did there usual excellent work. A big thanks to Courtney Suders for announcing a bunch on Friday and Saturday, she did great as always.

Boris Skoblov had his turbo six banger BMW rip an 8.22 @ 168 mph on his first pass, Bill Smith had the Pro-Stick Pinto make several runs, best 9.67 @ 137 mph with several 1.31 60 ft. launches. Gary Walker made one test hit with his Blue Nova but clicked almost right away. A real nice mix of cars, bikes and one Junior Dragster driven by Cole Rudy who made several straight clean passes by the seven year old new racer. Nice job Cole! We finished up on time at 10:00 PM.
 
Friday July 19th is a Test & Tune event, 6 to 10 PM. Saturday July 20th is a All-Access NHRA TV Summit Points race along with Outlaw Pontiacs and Coyote N/A heads up Mustangs. Sunday July 21st is another Summit ET Series race. See you at Mason Dixon Dragway this weekend!
Friday  --  July 5th
 
This was a Test & Tune event and it was very hot temps in the low 90's with sky high humidity. We started on time at 6 PM and almost right away we had a top end oil down that just as the clean up was wrapping up....it started to rain which was light and lasted about 20 minutes, it took over an hour to dry as the humidity was so high. About 8 PM we were back underway and finished up at 10 PM. Not a bad turnout all things considered. A tip of the hat to track management and staff for making a great effort to dry the track, many might have given up on the night's racing. Thanks to our racers and race fans for sticking with us too.
 
Saturday  --  July 6th
 
It was a real scorcher today, very oppressive humidity but we got underway on time at Noon with our SBRA Junior Dragsters, 22 entries in the field. Chrisopher Burch got the win over Madison Stotler in the final, Miles Raffa took third place. We went to the big cars at 3 PM and everyone got in their qualifying runs and as eliminations got underway it started to rain. It did stop for a bit and then just poured a bit after we called it a day. Another tough day for all.
 
Sunday  --  July 7th
 
Much better day in the beginning anyway with cloud cover and cooler temps. SBRA Junior Dragsters got going at 9 am. Again a 22 car field, today it was Landon Palmer winning over Cameron Boyd. Cameron got the big head start with a fine .027 light and Landon giving chase with a .016 light, dead close at the finish line, well run drag race by BOTH drivers in this one! Now the big cars, they got under way at 11:30 am. Everyone got their qualifiers in and we completed round one. The Pro Driver class got in round two and the Supers got a couple pairs down track and showers moved off the mountain. The rain briefly stopped and track drying was underway when harder shower soaked the place and we called it a day, racers still got rain checks but Pro Driver class having completed two rounds, 18 drivers still in, received $135.00 each. Sooner or later we'll get better weather to race, that's the hope anyway.
 
Thanks Steve Dress and the Outlaw Pontiac gang for racing with us on Saturday and same for Merritt Snyder and the MANDRA racers for running with us also, hope they can figure out a reschedule date for later on this season. A special thanks to Scott Klovensky our tech man for hauling my Firebird down so I could make a couple passes Friday night, very fun. This coming weekend is a Test & Tune Friday Night July 12th, we are off Sat. And Sun. A Summit Points race July 20 th and 21 st. See you this Friday night!  

Friday  --  June 28th

Saturday --  June 29th  --  Cruise for the Cure Event
 
The racing part of this event was totally rained / flooded out on Mothers Day and this was the make up day. Slightly less humid today but still hot. Show cars cruised in from Hagerstown arriving about 10 am and after a bit all the show cars parked, vendors got open and our tech guys were inspecting cars for the racing action that started at 11:30 am. Most everyone was satisfied with making many test passes down the quarter mile. We did run a bracket class with the three top racesr receiving real nice trophies, winner was a 6 footer!

Saturday  --  June 22nd  --  The 6th Annual Rocking Chair Nationals
 
Weather again a big help, temps in the low 80's but low humidity, just a real nice early summer day. The place filled up early with a big car show and a huge field of race cars, 266 strong with 170 show cars. We had numerous interviews with racing heroes from the early 60's many who are still, building, working on or still racing as much as they can. We started off at 10 am with Gary Gore and I interviewing our special guest racers and others involved in our sport in it's beginning years, we gave away a lot of plaques also. Now the racing got underway promptly at 11 am. Outlaw Pontiac had a 28 car field with Billy Farrell picking up his first Outlaw Pontiac win over Arnie Brewer. In Pro Driver class it was a great final, Dahrl Clark over Nicole Talbert . This class had many entries competing. Top Sportsman was won by Mark Gray in his "Double Vision" Malibu over Randi Teed in her Camaro. Nostalgia Eliminator was won by Daver Raser in his Ford Fairmont wagon, a great car with super driver makes him a tough one to beat. Chris Miller in his Altered Wheel Base Dodge was runner up.  In the 409 class Bob Walker won  in the 63 Chevy "Loving Chevrolet"  over the Miller Racing straight axle 65 Nova. Both are unique cool race cars. Pro Stick headed up by Eric Kitchen had 58 cars entered and Colton Kirchner was the winner. Even all these cars plus a high number of buybacks we still finished up at 8:30 PM. Hey gang a big thanks to Gary Gore and Hain Dominick for helping on the promotion end the race. Thanks Mt. Aetna Fire Company for their great food, breakfast and lunch was served, Hope's Lemonade served up plenty of fresh lemonade through out the day / evening. Another outstanding effort from our track staff, a smoothly run race, great track prep and maintenance,  plenty of excellent food prepared by our food stand crew, Cheryls Shirt Shack the cool event shirts and Bub and Becky Casto for their A-1 track photography.

This one was another well attended Test & Tune event with a good showing of race fans and 113 cars and bikes making passes from 6 PM til 10 PM. Some of the Big Tire cars made test passes and were fast too. Another very good Friday night event. Oh, the weather was excellent as well, temps in the 60's and breezy also.
 
Saturday  --  June 15th
 
Another big Street Nite event, weather was no problem, no rain and temps in the high 70's. We had six Big Tire cars, Jeremy Curry, Vince Fourcade, Steve Evans, Eric Champ, Scott Kline and Gary Walker, all were fast. Sadly on Scott Klines second pass the transmission blew apart big time just before the finish line. Scott was unhurt but the car had undercarriage damage and we had a major clean up to perform before we could resume the racing. The Mason Dixon crew did a great job cleaning up and re-prepping the racing surface so we could get back to racing. In the final it was Gary Walker with another hard launch and straight run winning over Jeremy Curry who left first and was in front for awhile til Gary drove around him in a really good race. Small Tire had only Harold Horton running, he made several hard straight passes, he typically runs with the Md. Performance Center Real Street racers. Quick 16 had 32 entries so made this into two fields, the bump spot was a 5.54. In the Quick group which had 7 four second cars it was Jerry Williams winning over Tom Morgan, Ken Colton and John Moton were the semi racers. In the second field it was Dale Jackson over Michael Shoop, Joe wetzel and Tim Kramer the semi racers. By the way, Tim Kramer from Hudson Florida made the trip to drive has dad Steve's Corvette. This was their first trip to Mason Dixon Dragway, bet we see more of those two! How the the 6.50 Index group, 28 entries, this class is taking off. Mike Reed took the win over Dan Rentz. Limited street was won by Charlotte Mallow over Roger Bard and Drive Street was won by Kathy Gerhart over Briab Canoles. We had a good turnout of race fans and race cars, with the down time to clean up the oil down we finished up just before 11 PM. A real good show tonite!
 
Sunday  --  June 16th
 
This was our rescheduled 36th annual Mopar Meet. Ok, the weather messed with this one a bit, all week rain was predicted and yes we had sprinkles before the racing and one 20 minute delay during round two but that was it, we got through it ok. We have had bigger Mopar races but this was still a good one, 90 cars raced and plenty of Mopar fans were in attendance also. In Super Michael Bauman squared off against Nathan Engler. Nathan dialed a 10.23 and and ran 10.230 with a .000 light....a PERFECT run, Michael had a good light and was one off the dial a good run, just not enough. Bernie Staub took third. Pro had Danny Householder in his altered wheelbase 65 Dodge winning over Steve McCulley, Danny Smith was third. Greg Orris in his Demon running low 10 teen passes won over Dave Goode and Randy Allen took third in the Sportsman class. A good event wrapping up the three day race weekend. A great job by all the staff, the foodstand busy all three days, track staff gave us a hard hooking racing surface all three days and and thanks to Karisa for announcing a good bit on Friday night and to Steve Dickey helping on Saturday with the announcing duties.

Friday  --  June 7th
 
This was another well attended Test & Tune event. Nearly perfect weather, clear skies and temps in the upper 70's helped bring in a great field of cars, bikes and junior dragsters, a total of 101 competitors and a lot of race fans too. Aside from a long down time to clean up a coolant leak from one of our racers, the evening went real well. Lots of passes made by all racers, we finished up right at 10 PM.
 
Saturday  --  June 8th
 
The racing action on this SBRA points race got underway at noon with our Junior Dragsters. We had a 16 car field with Steve Dustin III over Dylan Moore in the final, Mary Elizabeth Bannister and Mason Bean were the semi finalists. Good racing as always from our Junior Dragster racers. At 3 PM the big cars took the track. The Outlaw Pontiac racers were with us today, 20 racers competing. Mark Harbaugh took the win over Doug Chell, Rodney Eichelberger took third. Pro Driver had Nicole Talbert winning over Steve Dustin III and Kelli Fleming took third in a big field of racers, over 50 cars in the class. Super had Jerry Williams running low 4.70s winning over Josh Johnson, Michael Shoop took third, Jerry with his win had great lights, one was a perfect .000 and backed up next round with a .001 and dead on runs was unstoppable. The car works, 1.05 60 ft. launches, is consistent with a fine driver behind the wheel, great win for sure. Bike had Brian Canoles over Kermitt Garnett III in a real close and well run race by both riders. The Xmas trophies provided by Al's Body Shop were awarded to Larry Price winning over Ernest Tharpe in the Trophy class. Great racing all day / evening, weather real nice for once. We had 143 racers and a good race fan turnout too. We finished up at 8:50 PM.
 
Sunday  --  June 9th
 
Another SBRA points race that the weather messed with again. Very cloudy but comfortable temps in the 60's as the Juniors got underway at 9 AM with 17 racers competing. In the final it was Eric Bowles getting his second career win over first time finalist, Parker Fields. Eric had a slightly better light and won a close one over Parker. In the semis Parker took out yesterdays winner Steve Dustin while Eric beat Jo Jo Mallow in the other semi match up. Great work Eric and Parker today! Now the big cars. We started at 11:30 AM and though more clouds rolled in we were still dry and got round one of everything in but after getting most of Pro Driver round two down the track light rain / sprinkles forced us to stop. We managed to resume and get almost all the Supers down for their second round but the the rain moved wet everything down enough that stopped the racing for the day. We tried! Again Karisa was helping me announce eliminations and is starting to learn the job really well and having fun too.
 
This weekend....Test & Tune Friday 6 PM to 10 PM, Saturday, Big Tire and Small Tire No Time cars, Quick 16, 6.50 Index pay $1,000 to win, Pro Street, Limited Street, Drive In Street and Street Bike racing, we get underway at 4 PM, Sunday it's the Mopar event, show cars in early, racing at 11:30 am, see you at Mason Dixon Dragway this weekend!

Saturday  --  June 1st
 
This was a very well attended Street Nite race with over 150 racers entering the event. Weather was threatening with rain showers all around but early they left us alone. Later in the evening at about 10:30 PM it rained forcing us not to totally finish the racing. Md. Performance Center Real Street had 16 cars and the racing was very good. We got to the finals where Justin Reggio was to meet Josh McCoy. Josh had run a 5.02 @ 138 mph with a 1.16 60 ft in his semi and Justin ran his season best 5.03 @ 137 mph with a terrific wheelstanding 1.15 60 ft. in his semi pass. Joe Hagens and John Staats were the semi final racers. Quick 16 had 27 entries we opted to let all run with second field having 11 entries. It took a 5.61 to get in the top 16 field. Were only able to get to the semis in the main field and three cars in the second field. We had another stellar field of 6.50 Index cars, 22 entries, this class is getting good now! The Factory NA cars are real entertaining with times in the 10.20s and 10.30s. We did get Drive In Street done, Larry Price over Randy Allen and Bike with Brian Canoles over Brian Moore. Overall a great show, a big thanks to all our race fans that attended, there were plenty hanging out with us for our Street Nite race!
 
Sunday  --  June 2nd
 
This was another Summit ET series race that weather played into it in a big way. We got the race in, we had two very brief rain / sprinkle delays but the weather forecast had been for a 80 percent chance of rain and kept many racers and race fans away.
We started with a 23 car field of Junior Dragsters and got them done by 11:30 am, Steve Dustin took the win over Ryan Ely, Chris Burch took third place. Chris Lil put up $100.00 extra money for the Junior racers today, Steve Morgan and Joe Nahory won $50.00 each, thanks again Chris!

Oh, the rain and lightning did arrive just after the racing ended, it just dumped from Emmitsburg Md. all the way to East Berlin Pa. on my ride home

Friday  --  May 24th
 
A huge Test & Tune event, 153 cars and many race fans watched a variety of cars, bikes and junior dragsters run from 6 PM to a bit past 10 PM.

Thoughts on the weekend racing......Excellent turnout, especially Friday night, great track prep, cars fast and consistent, minimal break downs or oil downs, the program each day was fast paced and run in a timely fashion and great driving all weekend.
Nice driving by everyone but especially these racers, Mark Harbaugh, two Pro wins and four rounds on Monday, hard to stop him.Dylan Moore two Junior Street wins Nick Bowman getting a Super runnerup and a third spot finish in Pro / Sportsman. Dahryl Clark with a win and runnerup in Pro / Sportsman, Steve Dustin III won, runneruped and took a third spot finish in Junior Dragster, Jo Jo Mallow a win in Junior Dragster and High School on Monday and I know I'm missing some other good performers. A really good event!

Saturday  --  May 18th
 
This was a Summit ET series event and sure enough the weather played into this race. A heavy rain shower moved through about 6 am and soaked the place, it stayed cloudy til late morning and the track staff was hard at work drying the track. Finally at 10:30 am went drag racing starting with the Junior Dragsters. Jaiman Dietz of Hanover Pa. had a big day winning over Ryan Ely in the final. Travis Hill and Cameron Boyd were the semi racers. The big cars followed with Pro Driver being won by Brian Lind over Dicky Bodmer. Sportsman was won by Rocky Moore over Steve Dustin who broke the rear end on the launch in final. Bike had George Stanley winning over Brian Canoles. Darius Wenger beat Gerg Orris in the Trophy class. Junior Street was won by Dylan Moore over Travis Hill. Leaving Super for last, a quick moving thunderstorm with a lot of lightning moved in just as Mike Daymude and Brad Doss squared off for the final. Rather than risk a race with rain just about to start these two opted to split the money. Good to get a race in for once, we finished up just before 6 PM.
 
Sunday  --  May 19th
 
Another Summit ET Series race, sunny and breezy early, a nice dry track, we started right on time at 9 am. The Junior Dragsters got us underway with Landon Palmer winning over Dylan Moore, Maddie Stephens and Ryan Ely were the semi racers. The big cars took the track next and sure enough storms moved in with a lot of lightning in the mid afternoon. We did complete Junior Street, Dylan Moore over Travis Hill, Trophy was won by Greg Orris. We got no further than semis in all the other classes, when the storm arrived it was preceded by numerous lightning strikes causing us to stop, light rain arrived later. Of note Ronnie Proctor Sr. made some 1/8 mile test passes in a Top Sportsman Pontiac, ran 4.40s, Josh McCoy in his Real Street Mustang made partial passes and launched hard and straight and Brittany Clark's "Killa" dragster ran as quick as 4.43 @ 155 mph coupled with a .99 60 ft time, she was still in we stopped racing.

Friday  --  May 10th
 
This was a Test & Tune with heavy track prep for our next day Battle Mayhem race. We got the racing underway on time at 6 PM but sure enough light rain showers moved in about 7 PM and never really let up and we cancelled for the night.
 
Saturday  --  May 11th
 
We made a decision to continue the rain shortened Test & and Tune and started it off right at 9 am. It was well attended too as we ran a bit long clearing the lanes to start the first qualifying runs for the Battle Mayhem event. We got underway at 12:30 PM with Md. Performance Center Real Street, three cars cracked into the 4's, Richie Stine a 4.96, Mike Berry and Josh McCcoy ran 4.99. Big MPH was J C Beattie at 141 mph. Warriors race team bought some real fast cars, several in the 4.40 zone with 165 mph top end speeds. Big Tire No Time standouts were Scott Kline and Gary Walker, these two made excellent passes. Quick 16 was loaded, two fields qualified, the first group bump a 5.64 second group 6.02. 37 cars battled it out to make one of the fields.  NA Factory cars were cool, heads up 1/4 mile stick Mustangs, high winding small blocks, big wheel stands and the faster cars ran just under 10.20 ets. @ 130 mph. Lastly we ran a 6.50 Index class [1/8 mile] deal, last year we got as high as 14 entries this race a whopping 32 cars raced the class! Now we have to talk about the weather, it was cloudy and cool all day with temps in the mid 50's, there was light rain all around but aside a couple of sprinkle delays the rain held off and let us complete two full rounds for five of the six classes, 6.50 Index got in three rounds. About 9:30 PM light showers rolled in and wet everything down that were would be no way to continue the race. All racers still in split the full purses to make it a completed though shortened race. Let's thank a bunch of people, Justin Reggio of Md. Perfromance Center, Larry Mack and the Warrior race team drivers and crew members, all other competitors for supporting the race, our big turn out of race fans and lastly all of the Mason Dixon crew for the great track surface and keeping the event running as smoothly as possible, great work at our food stand, just good racing by all competing in the "Battle Mayhem" event! 
 
Sunday  --  May 12th  --  Mothers Day   ( Rain Most of the Day but did not dampen the spirits fot the Cruise for the Cure ) Sara and the Stablemates Car Club were able to muster over 43 SHow Cars and many vendors, The Pit Pork and Beef were out of site, . Sara texted me at the end of the day and stated they were able to gather over 7700 dollars for the Cure. Talks are in the works to possible continue the Cruise in June to get the Drag Racing portion completed.
 
Once again steady rains cancelled the drag racing portion of the 7th Annual "Cruise for the Cure" event. These events have been very successful in the past but now last year and this years events have been marred by by rainy weather. Hats off to Sara Mulkey and the Stablemates car club for so much hard work and time being put into this event.
 
This coming weekend is a Summit ET series race both on Saturday and Sunday, all Summit classes contested, Memorial Day weekend SBRA race the following week. See you at Mason Dixon Dragway!

Saturday  --  May 4th
 
This was a Test & Tune event contested on a mostly cloudy cool day, heavy rain Friday night made the lower pits pretty wet. The track crew did great a job drying and prepping the track and had it ready for the noon start time. We also had the Outlaw Pontiac Drag Race Series cars with us on their first event of the 2019 season, this is their 21st year as a race series, they have had that deal together a long time. It was Rodney Eichelberger getting the win over Randy Peer. East Coast Impala Racing group had their Impalas running, Dan Fahey took the win with his excellent Pure Stocker Impala. The Mopar Slant Six racers were with us too, former series champ Ron Hamby won in his Dart. With the big Battle Mayhem event coming this Saturday May 11th we some Md. Performance Center Real Street racers with us testing. The leader of the MPC Real Street and owner of Md Perfromance Center Justin Reggio finally got his own car out to play. Running the business and overseeing the Real Street races has caused Justin to take five years to finish up his own ride, what a beautiful, well belt hot rod it is too. Mustang powered by an LS nitrous assisted 451 ci. Chevy powerplant. First time down the track netted a 5.23 and on his last and best pass, 5.13 @ 135 mph. Only one throw away run, fives passes were quicker each time down the track, a successful day. We had a pretty good turn out of Test & Tune cars, MPC Real Street Josh McCoy and Russ Martin made some test passes during the event. Not a bad day, we finished up about 4:30 PM.

This was a Summit ET series race and it was a cool day with temps in the 50's but with very high and gusty winds all day long, we started on time and began with the Junior Dragsters. With such high winds were shortened their racing to 330' ft. A good mover there. Travis Hill took the win with Ryan Ely the second place driver. Junior Street was won by Travis Hill over Dylan Moore. Pro Driver was won by Mark Harbaugh over Doug Lindahl, see a pattern here, Mark Harbaugh won last time out and in our smaller gamblers race back in March he took the win also, he's on it already. Super had Joe Martz dead on his 5.59 dial to win over breaking out Brandon Lowe. Brian Canoles took Bike over Eric Bowles, that's two straight for Brian, nice work. Sportsman was won by Rocky Moore. Trophy had a couple of the Pontiac gang in the finals, Chuck Hutzler over Mike Clay. All the racing was shortened up to the 1/8 mile due to such windy conditions, another decent day considering the less than perfect racing weather.
 
Sunday  --   April 28th
 
Overnite rain and very wet pits caused another race falling victim to weather.
 
This Sat. May 4th a Test & Tune noon til 4 PM. Sunday May 5th is our big Mopar event, gates open early for racers and car show participants. Racing starting 11:30 am. Let's all plan to be at Mason Dixon Dragway this coming weekend. Oh, and check this website for details of this weekend and all the events on 2019 Schedule on the home page.

Saturday  --  April 6th
 
Weather again no problem, partly cloudy skies and temps in the mid 60's for Test & Tune day. About 75 cars, bikes and junior dragsters made passes from noon til 4 PM. Again a lot of full on race cars and bikes were on hand getting ready for the upcoming Summit and SBRA points races. Track was again great and everyone was fast too. A fun day to be at the track for sure. Two friends of mine, Katrina and Zack were visiting from from Stillwater Oklahoma, they were impressed by the fast cars and they liked our foodstand too! They'll be back.
 
Sunday  --  April 7th
 
Weather just about like Sunday. Just a bit warmer. Today more racers, 93 were with us and lots of race fans. Several Md. Performance Center Real Street cars were in the house making several passes each. Ronnie Boyd made several passes in his A / Econo Dragster, a 4.45 @ 155 mph in the 1/8 mile. Everyone made several runs each. Oh, how about Kathy Gerhart in her T-Bird sporting a 347 stroker small block Ford engine going straight into the 11's with a 11.75 @ 113 mph pass, she'll  be tough in Sportsman this year. Another real good day, we finished right a 4 PM.
 
We would like to thank Al Crawford of Al's Body Shop, Martinsburg, WV for now sponsoring our Trophy class at each of the SBRA points races, the winner and runner-up will receive a "Xmas Tree Trophy", these are are real nice, made from a composite material and are heavy....very desirable for our racers. Thanks Al and Chris, remember these folks when needing a any body work / collision repair! We are back this weekend, Saturday the tie-breaker race, Junior Dragsters at 9;00 am, big cars go at 11:30 am. On Sunday the first Summit ET Series race, Junior Dragsters at 9:00 am, big cars at 11:30 am. Almost forgot, Trish our front gate gal was released from the hospital on Sunday after a week stay, is home resting....yeah right! I won't be present this weekend, surgery on Friday, hope to make the following weekend, see you at Mason Dixon Dragway!

Saturday  --  March 30th
 
We had some light rain showers at about 9 am, they moved out quickly and with a breeze and temps that got to 70 degrees we were ready to go and on time with our Test & Tune event. What a crowd....154 racers and an excellent turn out of race fans tsaw some great running drag cars, street cars, Junior Dragsters, 12 of them and bikes made about 5 runs each. The track worked great as always and our new Accutime timing system works as it is supposed to. We had several of the NMRA Coyote Stock Mustangs making low ten second passes, this is a new class that will contested five times this year on our Street Nite races, first one will be on May 11th. This is a heads up class, close racing and big wheel stands too. Because we had so many cars we ran an extra hour finishing up about 5 PM. A really good race day, a big thanks to all that participated.
 
Sunday  --  March 31st
 
This race day was way colder, temps got to the high 40's and real windy but at least mostly sunny. The car count was way smaller but those that raced got a great track to run on and made many passes down the track. We did run a Gamblers race with no entry fee, $50.00 to the winner, this gave us a chance to work with our new timing system under race day circumstances. Mark Harbaugh dialed 10.00 to against Brian Stephan's 11.15, Mark with the better light but Brian was dead on the dial, Mark squeezed by for the win, a .0026 margin of victory....dead close! Oh, the match race of the day, Elmer Wachter in Cathy's GMC 6.2 LS powered wagon squared off against son in law and track manager Jake Landes in his Toyota Tundra V-8 truck. Elmer had a better light and it was close to the 60 ft mark and then it was all Elmer to the finish line, 14.22 @ 100 mph and Jake with a game 15.40 @ 90 mph. Wasn't close gang but fun, chalk one up General Motors! I'm sure by now everyone knows of the passing of Wayne Donoho last week, what a great guy, he loved to drag racing but liked hanging out with his fellow racers even more, he will be missed for sure. We finished up the day at 4 PM. Now next weekend both Saturday and Sunday are Test & Tune Days noon to 4 PM both days. See you all next weekend at Mason Dixon Dragway!

Sunday  --  March 24th
 
How about it....we finally got underway, after the first three weekends of March with either freezing temps, high winds, snow cover or really wet grounds the weather straightened up for the first racing of the 2019 racing season on Sunday with temps that hit 60 degrees later in the day. We started a few minutes late but everything else for our first race day went well. 93 competitors in a mix of full on race cars, street cars, bikes and trucks made their first passes of the year. Our race fans showed up in very good numbers as well. New for this year is a new state of the art Accutime timing system and it worked well too. Angela handled the computer chores and did a real good job as always. The new timing tower at the burnout area is now up and fully functional, car numbers and dial-ins will be easier to read than before, remember though, we still need bold, clear and legible car numbers and dial-ins from all our racers even though we are closer to the cars than before. The  new burnout boxes are a big improvement for all. We had NHRA chassis certifications on Fri, Sat and Sun, 97 cars went through the process. A big thanks to Steven Dickey and Elmer for handling the announcing duties, I spent three days in the hospital last week and  thought it would be best to sit Sunday out, thanks guys! I'll be back this weekend and hope of you will also. Sat. March 30th and Sunday March 31st are both Test & Tune days, noon to 4 PM both days. Oh, we wrapped things up a 4:30 PM. See you this coming weekend at Mason Dixon Dragway!

Temps in the 30's and high winds caused this day to be cancelled.
 
Sunday  --  Veterans Day  --  Nov 11th
 
Yes it was cold when arrived early in the morning, high 20's but with bright sunshine and nearly no wind it warmed up to a high of 43 deg. later in the day. What a turn out, 160+ cars, bikes, trucks and junior dragsters in the house. Many made their fastest passes ever in below sea level air, -1300 ft. at noon.  Bill Smith's Pinto ran a quick 9.63 @ 136mph fastest ever for that car, many others ran fast like Bill. J. C' Beattie made his first ever passes and his license runs in his "ATI Performance Products" Junior Dragster, well done. We were to run til 4 PM but an oil down caused us to run long, last cars down the track were at 4:30 PM. Thanks goes out to the big turn out of race fans who enjoyed the day and went through lots of hot chocolate and chili too. Real good day.
 
Last weekend coming up, all classes contested ALL 1/8 MILE both days, Junior dragsters start at 9:30 both days, big cars11 am Sat. ,11:30 am on Sunday.

This was our race day for the Tri-State Stock / Super Stock racers and a Test & Tune day.

Day two for the Stock / Super Stockers and this was a Summit ET series race, a King of the Track Wally up for grabs too. This was a much nicer day, real sunny, less wind and slightly warmer also, temps hit mid 50's late in the day.

Thanks goes out to Mike Carr and his mom Wendy for another excellent Tri-State Stock / Super Stock race, they do a great job, thanks for the support of our Stock / Super Stock racers and their family / crew members, Toni and Bill Smith, Bill did the invocation and Toni sang the national anthem, great job there, our track staff, a fine, fast paced show, great track prep too and finally thanks to our race fans for coming out to this race. We ran 167 cars today.
 
Getting close to the end now, Sat. And Sun. are both Test & Tune days. 11:30 am til 4:00 PM. The grand finale is Sat. Nov. 17th all Summit classes including Junior Dragster, game hen day and Sun.

Thursday  --  Oct 18th
 
We started at noon with a lot more racers today, 282 competitors in the house. We ran one time run and went racing. We got into round one and light rain rolled in causing us to stop racing for the day.
 
Friday  --  Oct 19th
 
Weather was fine today. We started at 10:00 am with a Gamblers race and then a Hi-Roller $5,000.00 to win for Super and Foot Brake cars. We are now up to 360 competitors and it took a long time get the Gamblers race done. In Super it was Randy Krause over W R Ketterman. Foot Brake Ben Garnett over Russ Archer. Bike winner was Don Butler over Dave Poage. Junior Dragster had Dylan Moore over Kyle Penn. It was now 10:00 PM and we were going to try to run the Hi-Roller races, we got one round in then it got real cold and we stopped a bit after 11:00 PM.
 
Saturday  --  Oct 20th
 
Today's goal was to run the Race of Champions race finish the Hi-Rollers and run the Gamblers race, weather messed with this one. A wet track in the am with no sun or wind to dry it we started three hours late at noon. Now we could do no time runs, we got the race of champions in with Super won by Paul Burruss over Mike Daymude, Foot Brake had Kevin Yates getting the win, Dale Hamilton won Bike and Cole Foskey winning Junior Dragster. We got all of round one of all the classes and nearly all of round two of Foot Brake when the temp dropped and a cold, steady rain moved in about 8:15 PM, we're done for the day now, money was split for all classes. 370 entries today.
 

Sunday  --  Oct 21st
 
We started on time at 9 am, but it's cold and a gusty wind caused us to make a decision to race the day to the 330' mark [ a 1/16 of a mile]. Junior Dragster had Dylan Moore winning his second race over Corrine Campbell. Super was won by Phil Truitt over Mike Daymude. Foot Brake had Cris Crawford over Dave Keyton. Bike was won by Ken Kaufman Sr. Over James Farmer. We ran just over 300 racers today, we finished the event at 6:45 PM.
 
Thoughts on this race....A huge thanks to Chris Lil who put up $600.00 to our Junior Dragster racers, this money was given to best losing packages in several rounds, perfect light money and winner and runner up money. He feels that the Junior dragster racers are our future and likes to support them at different events through out the year, thanks again Chris! We had 40 perfect .000 lights in the five days of racing. Mike Daymude and James Farmer had two runner ups, great work to those two but how about Dylan Moore, two wins, one on Friday and one on Sunday! Great track prep / maintenance all week, there were three different dragsters that ran under 1.00 second 60 ft. times, one as quick as .989. Big wheel stands from many racers, most were very fast, good air / great track makes them fast. Thanks to Gary Gore and Hain Dominick for helping run the event. New helpers Ken at the starting line and Vicky in the foodstand. Plus all of our regular staff did great work, they put in the long hours to make the event work well. On a personal note....thanks Darlene Bernie Staub for the excellent lunches, thanks Courtney Suders for announcing especially on Saturday and to Steve Dickey and Crissy Bainbridge for giving me breaks announcing also, they are all real good too. We had 1462 racers this week making about 7,000 passes. Congrats to team Baevers Springs getting 95 points to win the championship, Mason Dixon got 75, Eastside and US 13 61, Keystone 23 and Colonial Beach 16. I'm sure I missed something here but a big thanks to all that participated in the event, racers, their crew and family members and the the track staff. We had to be flexible with this event, mainly caused by mother nature issues. Again thanks to all that were with us for the 2018 SBRA Bracket Finals!

Saturday  --  Oct. 13th
 
Another Street Nite event in the books. Weather 35 degrees cooler than last weekend, temps barely hit 50 degrees and this made everyone real fast. We started at 1 PM with all classes getting a shake down run and about 2 PM we got qualifying underway. In Md Performance Real Street Russ Martin took the pole with a personal best of the year 5.03 @ 140 mph. Steve Kent,  Mike Berry and John Snyder were really fast too. Steve ran the best 60 ft. time with a rocket quick 1.14 launch. Wheel stand of the night, Jack Williamson's Nova went sky high to the 330' mark and stayed with it the whole way down, what a ride! When we got to the final, John Snyder and Mike Berry were to square off but opted to finish on Sunday, they were a bit wary of the colder track temps. Jack Williamson was third. Good show by all the Real Street racers. Quick 16 had 22 entries, a 6.01 was the bump. In the finals it was Jerry Williams taking the win over Mitch Willingham, semi racers were Lance Kreiger and Michael Shoop. The 6.50 Index class has seen steady growth with 12 entries, Pat Hahn won out over Matt Bowie. Pro was won by Justin Crider over Greg Garland. Drive in Street had Brian Canoles over Larry Price in the finals. A big thanks to Corey Thompson of BNL Inc. A disabled service employee owned company supplying technical support to numerous US Government agencies, for putting up money for the Real Street racers and $150.00 to the Drive in Street racers. Best packages in each of  the first three rounds of Drive in Street got $50.00, Brian Canoles, Larry Price and Donnie Myers got the cash, thanks Corey and BNL Inc. We finished up just before 8 PM. It was getting cold then, mid 40's, Fall's here now.
 
Sunday  --  Oct. 14th
 
It seemed ok early but about 11 am light showers that turned to a steady cold rain caused a cancellation of our racing again. We will move this event to a open spot, Sunday Oct. 28th, start time 11:30 am. We'll get that Real Street final in also.
 
The SBRA racers roll in on Wed for the 5 Day SBRA Bracket Finals, $68,000 up for grabs this coming week. Oh, and congrats to Ronnie  and Karen Proctor  as he won his second "Wally" of the year in Top Sportsman at Charlotte on Sunday, way to go! See you Wed. And all week at Mason Dixon Dragway!

Sunday  --  Oct 21st
 
We started on time at 9 am, but it's cold and a gusty wind caused us to make a decision to race the day to the 330' mark [ a 1/16 of a mile]. Junior Dragster had Dylan Moore winning his second race over Corrine Campbell. Super was won by Phil Truitt over Mike Daymude. Foot Brake had Cris Crawford over Dave Keyton. Bike was won by Ken Kaufman Sr. Over James Farmer. We ran just over 300 racers today, we finished the event at 6:45 PM.
 
Thoughts on this race....A huge thanks to Chris Lil who put up $600.00 to our Junior Dragster racers, this money was given to best losing packages in several rounds, perfect light money and winner and runner up money. He feels that the Junior dragster racers are our future and likes to support them at different events through out the year, thanks again Chris! We had 40 perfect .000 lights in the five days of racing. Mike Daymude and James Farmer had two runner ups, great work to those two but how about Dylan Moore, two wins, one on Friday and one on Sunday! Great track prep / maintenance all week, there were three different dragsters that ran under 1.00 second 60 ft. times, one as quick as .989. Big wheel stands from many racers, most were very fast, good air / great track makes them fast. Thanks to Gary Gore and Hain Dominick for helping run the event. New helpers Ken at the starting line and Vicky in the foodstand. Plus all of our regular staff did great work, they put in the long hours to make the event work well. On a personal note....thanks Darlene Bernie Staub for the excellent lunches, thanks Courtney Suders for announcing especially on Saturday and to Steve Dickey and Crissy Bainbridge for giving me breaks announcing also, they are all real good too. We had 1462 racers this week making about 7,000 passes. Congrats to team Baevers Springs getting 95 points to win the championship, Mason Dixon got 75, Eastside and US 13 61, Keystone 23 and Colonial Beach 16. I'm sure I missed something here but a big thanks to all that participated in the event, racers, their crew and family members and the the track staff. We had to be flexible with this event, mainly caused by mother nature issues. Again thanks to all that were with us for the 2018 SBRA Bracket Finals!

Another Street Nite event in the books. Weather 35 degrees cooler than last weekend, temps barely hit 50 degrees and this made everyone real fast. We started at 1 PM with all classes getting a shake down run and about 2 PM we got qualifying underway. In Md Performance Real Street Russ Martin took the pole with a personal best of the year 5.03 @ 140 mph. Steve Kent,  Mike Berry and John Snyder were really fast too. Steve ran the best 60 ft. time with a rocket quick 1.14 launch. Wheel stand of the night, Jack Williamson's Nova went sky high to the 330' mark and stayed with it the whole way down, what a ride! When we got to the final, John Snyder and Mike Berry were to square off but opted to finish on Sunday, they were a bit wary of the colder track temps. Jack Williamson was third. Good show by all the Real Street racers. Quick 16 had 22 entries, a 6.01 was the bump. In the finals it was Jerry Williams taking the win over Mitch Willingham, semi racers were Lance Kreiger and Michael Shoop.

Best packages in each of  the first three rounds of Drive in Street got $50.00, Brian Canoles, Larry Price and Donnie Myers got the cash, thanks Corey and BNL Inc. We finished up just before 8 PM. It was getting cold then, mid 40's, Fall's here now.

This was a double header event. We started out with our annual AMC car show / race event. Car show entrants and AMC fans came in early and checked out  the excellent show cars with a good number of them being the very cool AMX cars. Racing started at 11:00 am with one class of bracket cars plus a great match race of a pair of AMX Super Stockers, SS/B stick cars. A H Adkins and Barry Allen squared of in a best two out of three match race.  Barry Allen took the first one as A H went red. In the second match up A H uncorked a rocket fast 8.79 @ 150 mph to game 8.95 @ 149 mph. In the third and deciding run A H ran a quick 8.84 @ 150 mph to Barry's 8.97.

This was Eric's eighth final round appearance with the first seven tries where he came up short, but not today. Eric finally broke through for his first big win. He requested that all his fellow competitors come to the winners circle to be in his class winner photo. What a day for Eric and the Bowles family. By the way, Travis Hill took the third spot. At 1:30 PM the big cars took the track. We got two rounds of time runs in then the skies turned black, rain was moving in slowly. We kept going and got one round of Outlaw Pontiacs and Footbrake  cars down the track.

Sunday  --  Aug. 26th
 
Another sunny day but now we got the humidity and the temps got to the high 80's but the good part, no rain on any of the three days! Junior Dragsters started at 9:30 am. With girls winning today, Jo Jo Mallow won over Logan Simpkins, how about Jo Jo with a .014 light and Logan with a .015, the race was dead close, the Juniors are just great drivers.

Jordan Siguin licensed in grandad Alan Hess' dragster running a rocket fast 7.78 ET at a lifting 162 mph, he handled the car great today. We finished up just before 5:00 PM.
 
Thoughts on the weekend.....three races and no rain, finally. Three of our Junior Dragster racers licensed in big cars, two have aged out, Jordan Siguin and Scotty Morgan and still racing the Juniors, Jo Jo Mallow. They were sharp and will be competitive quickly. Vince Fourcade had his Pro Mod car out on Fri. Nite, two hits made one was a pedaling 4.78, lots more in that car. Paul Burruss ran as quick as 4.51 @ 152 on Sat, 1.02 60 ft. time, he's flying. Dale Grimm had the "Mr. Stitches" 31 Chevy blown gasser out with a new tranny / converter, now runs like it should, a 10.40 at a lifting 108 mph, it left hard, wheels up and loud, Johnny Gaither would be proud of how this car looks and runs. I got a ride around the pits in this car earlier in the day, its loud and cramped in there too, not much room for my long legs. This has been a real labor of love for Dale and his helpers with an emphasis on labor, an eight year build to get where it is now. Now what? I know....probably 9 second ETs. Steve Long had a big day Saturday winning Pro. The car has been on the track nearly 40 years, approx. 10,000 passes made, think of it, a 1/4 mile at a time, 2,500 miles of flat to floor driving. How about the great track all weekend long, everyone was fast and hooking hard. All the races started on time with a minimal amount of down time from clean ups. Overall a good weekend. We are fortunate to have this special place, Mason Dixon Dragway to come out and race and hang out together for nine months a year, It takes a lot of work from the owners and staff and help from our sponsors to keep it going and we appreciate support from our racers and our race fans also. Here it comes...Labor Day weekend, check out the flyer, Friday Nite Test & Tune, SBRA racing Saturday, Sunday and Monday,  Pro Stick on Sat. and Sun. and Outlaw Pontiacs on Sat. By the way just one time run and race on Monday to get us done a bit earlier on the holiday. See you at Mason Dixon Dragway this coming weekend!  

Friday  --  August 17th
 
This was to be our qualifying runs for our Big Tire / Small Tire Shootout but weather, as in rain, took center stage. The rains hit before we got underway, a track drying effort got underway but more rain moved in we had to call it a night.
 
 
Saturday  --  August 18th
 
We decided to make this one a Test & Tune event for all the classes running from noon to 4 PM, then take a break and run the rest of the qualifying and racing from 6 PM til completion. We had a pretty good turn out of racers considering more storms were forecast for later in the day. Big Tire racers, Lin Bowie, Scott Kline, Eric Champ, Gary Walker and Will Fair all made two passes each, all straight and fast too. Several small tire cars ran, Cary Daniels looked good, Quick 16 cars, 6.50 Index cars, Hi Roller Super and Footbrake and 7.90 Index Junior Dragsters made good passes also. Right as we finished up around 4 PM a huge bank of low black clouds rolled in and it just dumped heavy rain on us, nearly 2" inches of rain fell in about 45 minutes. For a time you couldn't see the scoreboards from the tower, we now had lakefront property in the lower pits and at the front gate. No drying was going to do any good tonite. At about 9 PM it rained hard again. No breaks from Mother Nature again.
 
Sunday  --  August 19th
 
Now for our Mid Md Ford Meet, we caught a break from the rain. Partly cloudy skies and temps in the mid 70's greeted the racers and race fans for this show and race. We had a nice turn out of show cars, 108 displayed all kinds of Fords on the Rt. 40 side of the track. At 11:30 am we got underway. Everyone got two time runs then we got eliminations underway. In Super we had Brittany Harrison in her Mustang run a string of low 9.50 passes @ 140 mph to win over Mark Decker in his dragster that ran high 7.90's. Brittany had a .005 light in the final to to take the win, great driving in a deadly consistent car!  Pro had Dan Roberts get the win over Joe Slifko, both these drivers were on it all day in the biggest Ford class that had 34 entries. Cody Roberts won the big Mustang class today, congrats to the Roberts family, great day for them. All around excellent racing from start to finish, we ended the day about 4:45 PM. We ran 110 Ford cars today and a real good race fan turnout too. By the way, as I left the track about one mile down  Rt. 66 it started to rain, we lucked out on this one! A very fun and well attended event.
 
This coming weekend, Fri. Nite, Test & Tune PLUS the Md Perfromance Center Real Street cars will race, we had 15 of these cars last week, there should be even more this time. Sat. And Sun are both Summit ET Series races, see you this weekend at Mason Dixon Dragway!

Friday  --  August 10th
 
This was a Friday nite Test & Tune event with a good turnout of 108 cars and bikes racing from 6 PM to 10 PM., lots of race fans too. No weather issues either for once. Scott Kline made some real good passes in his Chevy Nova getting ready for next weekends Big Tire / Small Tire shootout. A very good evening for sure.
 
Saturday  --  August 11th
 
Where do we start here. This was a "double feature" event, the 4th annual VW Nationals and later in the day / evening our Street Nite race. The weather played into this a bit, the forecast earlier in the week was for rain / storms all weekend, it didn't happen, it was sunny and warm throughout the VW race and only a couple sprinkles held us up for just a few minutes two times during the evening Street Nite race. It did rain all around us though at different times, we finally got a break with this event. The VW Nationals....a great turnout of racers, 74 cars competed in six classes, three were heads up, three were bracket classes that started at 11 am. We also had various vendors, 49 show cars and a great turnout of VW race fans too. Great racing, minimal breakage and an overall fast paced show from start to finish. We wound things up about 3:45 PM for this part of the day. A big thanks to Scott Pacaro for putting some much effort into the event and to Steve from the VW Heritage group for his hard work too. We'll do this one again next year!
 
Now for the Street Nite race. We got underway at 5 PM with the first qualifying shots. The Md. Performance Center Real Street class ran first, 15 cars in the class, Dalyn Palmer ran a stout 5.06 @ 136 mph but on that pass hurt the car and was able to make the show. Mike Berry took the win over Mike Fortney in the final. Mike Berry's Chevelle ran a string of 5.20 passes and was consistent all night long. The semi racers were John Turner and Steve Kent. In Quick 16 it was Michael Shoop over Calvin Kline driving Mike Howell's Falcon. Mitch Willingham and Mike Rollison were the semi finalists. Now to the 6.50 Index class. After many runner up efforts Matt Bowie finally broke through and took the win over redlighting Nathan Englar. Matt was way overdue to win one of these 6.50 Index races, the winners circle was a happy and emotional place tonite with Matt's win, great job. Oh, more wins are coming from the Bowie team. Pro had Joe Magetti winning over Randall McNamee. Limited was won by Rocky Moore over Roger Bard. Street had Annie Waters over Randy Allen. Street Bike was won by Brian Moore over Paul James Sr. Great racing by our Street Nite competitors and we had a nice turn out of race fans and many of our VW fans stuck around for the night racing too.

Friday  --  Aug. 3rd
 
Another Test & Tune night rained out again. Heavy rains rolled through for the entire evening........same old same old
 
Saturday  --  Aug. 4th
 
This was a SBRA event with a real good turn out. Lot's of sun with temps getting to the high 80's. Kind of humid though. We started with Junior dragsters at 1:30 PM. Fifteen cars made the call, Dylan Moore was the big winner over Brooke Keyton, Josh Sisk and Charlotte Mallow were the semi racers. By the way Charlotte Mallow will be heading off to college and this was her last Junior dragster race, she ranks way up at the top of Junior Dragster racing, period! We'll see more of her in big cars in the future for sure. At 4 PM the big cars took the track. In Super 61 cars battled it out and Mike Daymude took the win over the barely red Charlotte Mallow driving Bob Nicholson's El Camino. The younger Michael Shoop took third. In Foot brake we had 71 entries, Dahryl Clark took the win over Kristin Suders, Dave Heaton and Brad Keyton were the semi racers. Kermit Garnett III won over Mike Schultz in the bike class. Chuck Hutzler won Trophy. We did have one bad transmission failure to clean up that took one hour, right after that another 20 minute clean up was performed from a hurt engine. Number one, great paitence was shown by our racers and race fans while the clean was done and number two, our track staff did an excellent job of making the track top shelf for the rest of the race. 166 cars competed but we did run a bit late as we finished up a 11:40 PM. Of note....as wet as some of lower pit area were, no one drug mud / water onto the lanes or starting line, that was a big help today.
 
Sunday  --  Aug. 5th
 
The third time is the charm, we finally got the 35th annual Mopar Meet race in the books. No car show today, that part was done in previous tries but now we went racing. Real hot today, sunny temps hit low 90's. Super Pro had the final three cars that were all dragsters, in the semis Mike Daymude got by Brian Canoles in his newly acquired  500 c.I. Dodge powered dragster. In the finals Mike Daymude won out over Michael Bauman. By the way Brian Canoles had never driven a dragster til the night before when he made just two passes, the car works well, he'll be very tough as the season goes forward. In Pro it was Bob Wahl won over Robert Schatz in his altered wheel base 65 Ply hemi car. Street was won by Bob Caliman over Randy Allen. Trophy had Mark Kalisz over Darrell Goodman. A lot of nice classic Mopars  and late model stuff racing and on the grounds today, lot's of vendors too. We finished up at 4 PM, a nice day of racing.
 
We'll try a Test & Tune Friday nite and on Saturday....a Double Header, our 4th annual VW meet with car show early in the am, racing at 11am. At 4pm the gates open for our Street Nite race, Md Performance Center Real Street, Quick 16, 6.50 Index class, Pro, Limited Street and Drive Street are contested.

Mike even jumped in and did announcing in the final rounds. Bet he didn't know I was going to put him to work!

Saturday  --  June 23rd
 
This was to be our "Rocking Chair Nationals" race but rain in the morning with heavy rains that hit in the afternoon and evening caused the event to be moved to the next day.
 
Sunday  --  June 24th
 
The pits were a bit wet but the sun was shining and we were off and running our "Rocking Chair Nationals". People and show and race cars rolled in early. Car show entrants were getting set up at 9 am and also Mt. Aetna Fire Co. were serving up breakfast sandwiches. At 10 am we started with interviews of many racers and crew members behind the starting line, Gary Gore and myself handling the "mikes".  I'll miss some here but we talked to Dale Grim, owner and restorer of the Johnny Gaither "Mr. Stitches" 31 Chevy Gasser, Bob Walker Jr. Bob Badger, Sam Auxier Jr., all the S & S gasser team,  Rick and Terri Osborn, the 409 racers and Outlaw Pontiac racers. Plaques were given to many participants of the event. This was a great start of the day. With a possibility of big storms late in the day we went drag racing with just one time run for all getting underway right a 11:30 am sharp. We ran several classes, all with good car counts. We ran Pro Stick, Nostagia Eliminator, a $2000.00 to win Footbrake class, Top Sportsman, $1200.00 to win there, a 409 Chevy class and the Outlaw Pontiacs. Round one got underway about 1:30 PM and already storms were firing up south of us, we completed three rounds for everyone except Pro Stick. As we were into round three it got darker and cooler and just about 5 PM it just dumped heavy rain lasting nearly a half hour and that was it. Money was split to those still in competition and we had to call it a day. We had a great turn out of race fans, just under 400 entries were on the grounds today. A big thanks to all that were with us, show car people, race fans, racers and their crew members, Mt. Aetna Fire Co. and all the Mason Dixon Dragway crew. Aside from the rain cutting the racing short, it was a great fun day. Also a special thanks to Steve Dickey for helping me announce the event, he is really sharp on all the different drag cars, especially nostalgia stuff. Also thanks to Gary Gore and Hayne Dominick for their help supporting / promoting the event.

This was our first Street Nite event for 2018, the originally scheduled event was rained out in May.

Performance Center Real Street cars took the track with 11 entries, right away the low qualifier was Dalyn Palmer with a 5.06. In the final Dalyn Palmer lined up against Tommy Bauerlien. At the hit Dalyns car made a move and that's all Tommy needed to take the big win. Steve Kent was third, Dalyn did have low Et in the semis, a 4.96 @ 140 mph. Great job goes out to Justin Reggio of Md. Performance Center and all the Real Street drivers and crew members. How about our Quick 16 racers, the bump for this one was a 5.86 Et, 20 cars entered.

Sunday --  June 10th

The big cars then took the track and as we got into eliminations we had several rain showers roll in that caused down time, finally we called it a day after more rain was closing in on us. We did get two rounds of Footbrake and one round of Super and Bikes, all those still in competition split the purse money. The Outlaw Pontiacs were with us also and they split money to the remaining racers still in.

We had approx. 750 cars, bikes and Junior Dragsters racing over the four day event. Each and everyday we were right on time as advertised, thanks to our staff and our racers making that happen. Toni Smith, wife of our RFC chaplin Bill Smith sang the national anthem on Monday just before round one, she was outstanding! Bill Smith, Newman Sisk, Joe Martz, Jo Jo Mallow and Josh Sisk all helped with our invocations each day. Cris Lil put up $100.00 to our Junior Dragster semi racers on Monday. Great track prep as always though changing weather made cars tough to dial, a lot of break out runs recorded. We had racers from Md. W.Va. Va. Pa. NY. and NJ. Many of these racers represent tracks from all over the Northeast and Southeast. Glad you picked us to race with this weekend. When we had a scoreboard malfunction on Monday morning Elmer fixed it right away, his skill and Daktronics Scoreboard Co. were there with phone support. How about Cris Craword, a win and a runnerup in Footbrake, Jordan Mason in Junior Dragster also had a win and runnerup. Travis Hill won two Junior Street finals. Brian Canoles won the Sat. And Mon. Race. Many close races recorded with less than a 1 inch margin of victory happened several times. Overall a real good SBRA event, nice job everyone!
 
Fri. Nite is another Test & Tune, on Sat. A summit ET Series race / Md. State Championship race. Juniors at 1 PM. Big cars at 3 PM, rain date would be moved to Sun. See you at Mason Dixon Dragway!   

Saturday  --  May 12th
 
This was a Summit ET Series race plus the Outlaw Pontiac gang and the East Coast Impala group raced with us also. Again we mention the weather, a gloomy forecast all week for this race but the rains held off til the end of day luckily. Cars were fast earlier in the day and then the temps shot up to the high 80's and lots of humidity slowed them down, it was a real challenge to dial in the cars and bikes for sure. First the Junior Dragsters took the track at 9:30 am Sammie Miller getting the win over Charlotte Mallow, Shelby Nick took third in this 19 car field. Parker Fields from Frederick Md. licensed in his Junior dragster and drove real well, mid 11 second passes and he got better on the tree each run, nice job! At noon the big cars took to the 1/4 mile, in the Outlaw Pontiac group it was Jason Rodgers over Doug Chell, Randy Peer took third place, there were 22 cars in the class today. ECIR class had 15 cars entered with Stu Drozd over Navil Guffey in the final. Super had Mark Decker in his dragster winning over Al Hite in his Vega, George Hoff took third place. Pro was the biggest class with Chris Crawford winning over Dicky Bodmer, Bob Hamilton was third. Randy Allen won in Street over Darius Wenger and Andy Stief took third spot. Jr. Street was won by Travis Hill over Dylan Moore, Tyler Gontz was third place racer. Bike was won by Dale Hamilton over Kermit Garnett III, George Stanley and Boyd Mathias were the semi riders. Trophy was won by Doug Chell. In the All Access NHRA Challenge the class winners squared off to win two passes to any National Event race, it was Dale Hamilton the winner over Mark Decker, the rain was moving in at that point and it started to rain fairly hard right after their run, just made it! The weather I'm sure kept some away yet we still had 172 cars racing today, a pretty good turn out, We finished up about 6:45 PM.
 
Sunday  --  May 13th
 
This was the 6th annual Cruise for the Cure race, car show and cruise-in event hosted by Sara Mulkey and the Stablemates Car Club. The weather forecast was terrible, rain called for off and on during the day yet a fair number of show cars and trucks, a good group of vendors and we had a good turn out of race fans too. It took til 12:30 PM to get the track dry and then we did race, with the Dan Roberts family winning the first and runnerup spot in the one class Gamblers Race. This event has been a big event in the past but mother nature did play well today kept many people away, despite all that it still made money, we'll get a total and report it at another time. We thank all that participated today!  
 
Saturday May 19th...the first Street Nite race, Md. Performance Center Real Street, Quick 16, 6.50 Index, Pro Street, Limited Street and Drive In Street are all contested. On Sunday May 20th the Big Mopar event, all things Mopar! See you at Mason Dixon Dragway this weekend!

Saturday  --  May 5th
 
This was to be our 10k Super Pro and 10k Footbrake race plus Big Tire and Small tire no time shootout event. Once again the weather ends up being a big part of the story. Early in the week leading up to this event rain was called for both Sat. And Sun. With rain being forecast at nearly 100 percent for the afternoon we decided to cancel out but still attempt to do a Test & Tune for those that were already at the track. The morning was mostly cloudy and we did get underway at 11:30 am. There were several Big Tire racers, Lin Bowie, Erich Champ, Scott Kline, Jason Smith all made runs before noon. Small Tire racers were Russ Martin, Mike Fortney and Cary Daniels and they also ran around noon. We had several other Test & Tune racers that made several passes. About 1:00 PM we had the first sprinkles and light rain causing a delay in the racing.  we waited it out a bit and just as we resumed racing the rain picked up and by 2:00 PM we had to call it a day. Too much of this already this year. By the way, if any of these racers with us today win the No Time race Elmer will add $200.00 to the winning purse in appreciation of their support of this race.
 
Sunday  --  May 6th
 
This was to be a Test & Tune race that was cancelled early and rain did roll in before noon, a good call on this one. Jake, Bubby and Elmer were in ditch digging mode to run the necessary conduit to the new computer operator building. One step closer to have a great position to be able to seee the dial-ins and car numbers by the Burn-out area.  Keep in mind you can order permenant numbers from Cheryl or Bubby, your choice of colors and sizes. Makes your car stand out .
 
Next week....Sat. May 12th is a Summit ET race with Outlaw Pontiacs, Junior dragsters start time at 9:30 am and big cars at noon, also this is a NHRA All Access race, two passes to any NHRA national event to the overall winner of the day.

A big thanks again to Sara Mulkey and the Stablemates Car Club gang for putting in the hard work to make this event happen. See you at Mason Dixon Dragway this weekend! 

Saturday  --  April 28th
 
This was a SBRA event plus the first of ten Outlaw Pontiac Drag Series events scheduled for 2018. Weather ok to start, mid 40's when our Junior Dragsters took the track dead on time at 9:30 am. It ended up a Mallow final with Charlotte winning over Jo Jo in a close one, Daylin Hoyler was third, 18 cars ran in round one. At noon the SBRA cars and Outlaw Pontiacs took the track. Both time runs were ok and then the clouds moved in. During  round two of eliminations it rained very light or sprinkled, we stopped and started four times, each time we got the track back to A-1 race shape but finally at about 6:30 PM it rained hard and got cooler, we couldn't continue and we called it a day. All classes completed round three and remaining racers all split the pursed evenly. Good racing all day, Footbrake was the big class with 64 entries, Outlaw Pontiacs had their usual turn out of 23 cars. We tried!
 
Sunday  --  April 30th
 
Cold and windy early but mostly sunny and it finally did hit 50 degrees later in the day. Another excellent turn out for our Test & Tune event, 108 cars, bikes, Junior Dragsters, license run cars and No Time cars made many passes from 11:30 am til about 4:10 PM. Everybody was fast. How about Ryan Ely on his 17th birthday driving dad's 70 GTO Judge to several runs, first two easy passes then a 10.08 and a 10.06 and on the last pass as we were ending the day Ryan laid down an outstanding 9.98 @ 131 mph, that's as good a birthday present as you could get. Nice job Ryan. And yes we had Lin Bowie in his big tire Hemi powered Camaro make two test hits, they were no time passes, both straight and the second one faster, car looks good and sounds awesome. You will want to be here Sat. May 5th for our Big Tire / Small Tire shoot out and for the 10k Footbrake and 10k Super Pro race. It's gonna be a great show.
 
Keep checking this website for all the upcoming events, May is going to be busy, see you at Mason Dixon Dragway this weekend!
