Steve Dickey was with us and did a good bit of the announcing and did his usual fine job. The track had plenty of fast door cars and all hooked hard and went straight, several big wheel stands....everybody likes them.

Thoughts on the weekend. Despite Sunday and Monday with really trying weather conditions the track was dynamite all four days, great hook, run after run racers hit the dial in and had .00 lights in each lane, everyone kept their cool through out the long days, the three bigger cleanups were  handled really fast, minimal down time. On Saturday we had fourteen .000 lights, 2 were quad zip lights. On Saturday and Sunday we had entries from seven states. Many racers that typically run elsewhere came to our house for the weekend. Good to have all of them here.....Come back anytime! Steve Dickey helped announce most of the day Sunday, always a better day when he's with us. Dianne Ford also announced some on Monday, she's been around our sports since the 80's, I'll try get her to do some announcing again real soon. The entire Mason Dixon staff / owners worked hard and put in the long hours to make this holiday race a success. A big thanks to all the racers, their family and crew members, our sponsors and lastly our dedicated race fans!  Test and Tune this Sunday with the Outlaw Pontiacs. See you this weekend at Mason Dixon Dragway!

A big thanks to all that helped us today, Gary Gore, Hayne Dominick, Steve Dickey my announcing partner, the Mt. Aetna Fire Co. staff our track management and staff and our sponsors.

Saturday  --  May 20th


This was a Test & Tune event along with Outlaw Pontiac Drag Race Series cars and the Nasty Nines class. Weather once again played into how this event did. First off rain was predicted to hit us in the mid afternoon probably causing some not to show up. First off it was mainly sunny and hit 80 degrees in the early afternoon. We got the track and racers to start just a bit early as cars went down the track starting at 10:50 am. The Pontiacs with 14 entries made their deal a one time run and go and the Nasty Nines, 7 cars entered made two time runs but no buy backs. Test & Tune entries hit about 70 cars, the usual mix of fast full on drag cars, street cars, bikes and junior dragsters. Doug Farace had his blown 63 Corvette running two full quarter mile passes, both were 7.27 @ 188 mph. Loud and fast. Bob Jansen had his dragster in the low 4.70s @ 147 mph in the eighth mile. Once again, great track prep / maintenance so these cars could run big numbers. In Outlaw Pontiac it was Bruce Garber over George Walker in a well run close final. Mike Clay took third place. Steve Dress normally heads up the Pontiac gang but could only stay a short time, Bill Bolin, Paul and Anne Beard ran their program the rest of the day. The Nasty Nines were quick, they set their Index at a fast 9.90 ET. Dan Ryntz won over Joe Conway, the semi races were Michelle Plasterer and Jason Henry. These cars are fun to watch, small tire hot rods that launch hard and often do big wheel stands. The no entry fee $500.00 to win 1/8 mile race was won by Travis Hill over Mark Decker, Randy Allen took third. We finished up right at 3 pm as advertised.....and beat the the rain that did there about an hour later. Oh, thanks goes out to Steve Dickey, he spent most of the day with us and did a good bit of announcing too. We thank all the racers, their crew and family members, our dedicated race fans, sponsors and our track staff for making this a really good event.

Aetna Fire Company set up their food stand and helped feed the big crowd along with our excellent food stand. Both were busy all day long. As often comes into play the weather was part of the story.

Some thoughts on this weekend. Street Nite had many excellent cars and bikes, a fast paced entertaining show for sure. A great track too, fast cars going quick and straight. Steve Dickey helped with the announcing, always fun when he's here! The Mopar Event. We had an engine let go at 1/4 finish line, a bigger clean up yet our gang had us up and running again in 20 minutes, that's fast. We did push the pace because impending rain showers, the racers bought into it and were in the lanes quickly after each round. The staff was moving along quickly too so we could finish the event. Great job by all. Oh, and we can't forget our race fans. a nice turn out both days, thank you for supporting Mason Dixon Dragway!! This Saturday May 13th is a Summit ET series race with the Outlaw Pontiacs with us too. Sunday Mother's Day we are closed. See you at Mason Dixon Dragway this Saturday!

Saturday  --  Nov. 5th

This was the Kevin Fowler Memorial race with many of the Fowler family in attendance, some racing and many just enjoying the day. It was a warm and humid day, more like late summer than November. This event was open to the public, many did the Test & Tune thing and we had a number of early arrivals for the next day's Stock / Super Stock event making big wheel standing launches on many passes. About 1:30 we did run a no entry fee 1/8 mile race, $400.00 winner take all deal. In the final Rick Wenger in his 66 Chevelle won out of Carl Schode in his Chrysler Super Stock GT car in a close one. We finished out the day at 4:30 pm after everyone made plenty of passes. Overall a good day.

Sunday  --  Nov. 6th

In early morning hours the track was really wet after the overnight showers rolled through. After a lot of track drying we decided to proceed but run everything 1/8 mile. Drying was tough, sky high humidity and low clouds hampered getting the track ready. We did get underway at 11:30 am. First out were 42 Harry Huntzberry Memorial Stock / Super Stock entries, again hard launches, wheel stands were what race fans witnessed as we got going. Next up 23 Quick 16 cars made the their runs. Cory Carper was low ET with 4.69 @149 mph, Kevin Moore rode the bump spot at 5.75 ET. Four cars ran in the 4's. A good field. Next up was the 32 car Hi-Roller pre entered group shooting for the $3000,00 to win, $1,000.00 runnerup and $500.00 semi final prize money. Lastly the Test & Tune gang made passes about 65 entries were with us. As we got through part of the Stock / Super Stock round two of qualifying passes.......it rained, not super heavy but steady that lasted about an hour. With humidity so high it probably would have taken us to late in the afternoon to get the track right for racing so we called it a day. This was about 3:30 pm. Refunds went to the Stock / Super Stock racers and to the Hi-Roller racers. This event had the makings of a really good race, thanks to all that attended, racers and race fans.

This Sunday a Test & Tune day, a free no entry fee 1/8 mile race if we have 60 cars racing. Nov. 20th is the Grand Finale.....The annual Turkey race, Junior Dragsters, Super, Pro, with Bikes who run with Pro and Sportsman, all classes this day are 1/8 mile.

Hailey Lindamin with her dad Nick has been out regularly in her Junior Dragster, she made several low 8.90 passes with good reaction times on every run. She'll be tough in 2023 no doubt.

We got the racing underway at 11:30 am, our usual Sunday start time. In Super it was Dale Jackson over Justin Crider, Roger Lewis was third place. Pro was won by Dave Slusher Jr. over Mike Rodgers, Robert Bowers took third place. A fair number over Camaro / Corvette class racers made many passes as losers came back and made more time runs.

Another Street Nite Saturday and a Summit ET Series event on Sunday, see you Mason Dixon Dragway this coming weekend!

Friday  --  July 22nd


This was another Test & Tune event running from 6 pm to 10 pm. Again it was really hot, temps in the low 90's as we got underway. Everyone made plenty of runs as the turnout was down some, no doubt the really hot weather played into the attendance for this event.

Saturday  --  July 23rd

This was a Summit ET series race with the start time moved back to avoid the high temps predicted. We started the racing at 5 pm with our Eastern Regional Championship Junior Dragster racers. There were 26 racers in this class and we did get in the two time runs and two rounds of eliminations and the the sky darkened, winds came up and then the "R" word, rain and lots of it, after an hour or so and raining still, we called the event. We did get Pro cars and some of the Super cars their qualifying time shot in but that was it. Weatherman still being tough on us for sure. 

Sunday  --  July 24th

The Summit ET race for today was cancelled. We made this call Saturday evening with high 90's temps and high humidity predicted making just it to much for all to deal with. A good call, Sunday was brutal.

This weekend, Saturday is Street Nite and Sunday the GM race. We have suspended Friday Nights for now though will do Friday night Test & Tune, Aug. 12th and Sept. 2nd. See you this weekend at Mason Dixon Dragway!

Friday  --  July 15th

Saturday  --  July 16th

Once again, threatening rain forecasts for the weekend hurt the turnouts. The MANDRA cars were with us today and it was Bob Maulick's altered winning over Bud Poust's Nova, Ray Bloom and Brian Yarrison were the semi racers.

Super had another close race as Paul Burruss won out over Mike Daymude. Al's Body Shop Trophy was won by Ken Howard over Richard Wertz. Though not a big turnout the racing was terrific, dead close double .00 light races each round. Nice driving and yes the track worked well all day.

Sunday  --  July 17th

In the early morning hours, misty damp weather and wet roadways most certainly held people back from coming today. We were able to start right on time at 11:30 am. In Pro Mark Harbaugh won over Cody Roberts in the final, Dave Slusher Jr. and Kevin Hamilton took the semi spots. Super Pro had Brandon Lowe over Lin Bowie, Nathan Englar took third place. 

Well once again the gloomy weather forecasts, not the weather we really get is hurting us. We gotta soon catch a break with this, sooner than later. We DO thank all those who are supporting us when weather forecasters paint such a crummy picture for the weather will be seeing on our race days!

Friday  --  July 8th


This was a Test & Tune event that was certainly affected by the weather. Forecast for rain showers around 9 pm happened as predicted. The skies looked awful all late afternoon this coupled with a less than great forecast made for a small turn out. Those that came made many runs, a good variety of cars ran fast, several real fast street cars ran high 9's and low 10 second passes. We were able to race til just after 9 pm then light rain moved in, we had to call it a night. A big thanks to those that did choose to be with us!

Saturday  --  July 9th

This was to be a Street Nite race but the rains that rolled in Friday night persisted well into the day Saturday forcing us to cancel the race.

Braelin picked up the $200.00 first place money and a turkey for her efforts, A. J. got $100.00 and a turkey for the runnerup spot. Connor Boyd was the third place racer.

Great racing and cooperation from the racers as in the last hour of racing the temperature dropped to 40 degrees just as we finished at 6:40 pm. We really pushed to get done before it really got cold and we pulled it off. A big thanks to all that have supported the Street Nite events, racers, crew and family members, fans and to our track staff and owners, these are fun events, watch our schedule for next year's race dates.

Sunday  --  November 7th

Another Test & Tune event getting underway at 11:30 am it was cool and windy too. We had over 100 entries so we did run our no entry $1,000.00 to win 1/8 mile race. Mark Gray, who won the 7.10 Index the night before won over Roger Bard. Lots of passes made by everyone, we stayed a little longer than scheduled wrapping this up at 4:10 pm.

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

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.

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.

This was a SBRA event that got underway at 9 am with our Junior Dragsters starting the day. Weather played into this event as it was raining east of us everywhere causing other tracks to cancel out. We had three rain delays while the Juniors ran but we still got their racing done by noon. 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 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. James White III made all his license runs today, nice work James. Now the big cars, right on time getting underway at 11:30 am. 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. Another great day of racing, all three in fact were excellent, nice turn outs of race cars even though each day was hot and humid too. We finished up at 4 pm. 
 
This weekend...., Saturday is a private track rental and Sunday is a SBRA race. See you this weekend at Mason Dixon Dragway!   


Friday  --  July 16th
 
This was at Test & Tune event starting at 6 pm. It was hot too, 94 degrees when we got underway. Despite the hot day we still had 61 cars and bikes making many passes. There was a decent amount of race fans were there as well. Everybody made plenty of passes as we finished up at 10 pm. A big thanks to all that participated. 
 
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The weather was great, temps in the hi 50's and sunny. We got underway at noon and around 3 pm we ran a N/C $500.00 to win Gambler Race. Rick Wenger took the win over Mike Fenslau, Darius Wenger was third. An overall really good opening day. We finished up about 4:15 pm.
 
Sunday  --  March 21st
 
Another Test and Tune day, perfect weather, temps hit low 60's and sunny. More cars today, over 80 racers. Again another N/C Gamblers race paying $500.00 to win. Mark Decker won in his dragster with mid 4.90 passes each run winning over the street driven Camaro piloted by Glen Estelle. Roger Bard placed third. Another good day, we finished up at 4:10 pm. 
 
A big shout out to Mason Dixon Dragway for the diamond grinding of the track, it got better as more cars have run on it. A nice improvement for the 2021 racing season. This weekend we again run two Test and Tune events, we start earlier, 11:30 am to 4:00 pm both Saturday and Sunday. It's great to be back, what a long winter! See you this weekend at Mason Dixon Dragway!

Saturday  --  Nov 21st
 
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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

Saturday  --  November 9th
 
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.
 
Sunday  --  November 10th
 
This was the Truck Warz event. A much nicer day that reached the mid 50's late in the day, excellent for racing. The gas trucks had David Kline over Bill Cramer, semifinalists were Nicole Talbert and Kelly Flemming. Diesel class had Kevin Hamilton over Brian Canoles, Logan Mathias was third.

We also had a good amount of Test & Tune racers, Jim Anderson Jr. finished out his license runs, mid 8 second passes at 155 mph, well done. 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  --  Nov. 2nd
 
This was day one for our Stock / Super Stock racers and a well attended Test & Tune event. The weather great to go fast, sunny, clear, light winds and temps getting to the low 50's had everyone flying. The Stock / Super Stocks got two time runs and then the 31 cars went to round one. In the final Ryan Horensky won over Kyle Huntzberry in a close one. Kevin Anderson and Byron Worner were the semi finalists. We had two bigger oil downs which had us running a bit late. We finished up about 6:30 PM. 110 total cars and bikes competed today.
 
Sunday  --  Nov. 3rd
 
Day two, started slightly warmer but windy and partly cloudy skies were the order of the day, temps did hit in the low 50's again. Best part, no rain! We started at 11:30am with Stock / Super Stock. We had 39 entries and in the end Kyle Huntzberry in another final and this time he won the $2,000.00 over Steve Long. Bunk Miller driving Kevin Anderson's car took third spot. We ran Super and Jim Day won over Tim Humm. In Pro Driver Kenny Dick won over Dahryl Clark, Harli Bergeau and Cody Roberts were the semi racers. We had Test & Tune also, a total car count of the day was about 115 cars and bikes. We finished right at 5 PM, just as it started to get cold, a fast paced day too.
 
To wrap this up, first, a huge thanks to Mike Carr and his mom Wendy of the Tri-State Stock / Super Stock Assoc. and to helpers Tom Lang and Carl Schodde Jr. for helping both days start to finish. Mike Carr also received a beautiful engraved crystal bowl in recognition of his efforts over the past 25 years. Congrats to the Carr family. Great performances by most all of the cars today, some personal bests out there. The track was excellent both days, colder track temps and all. Wheelstands, yeah we had plenty, Ken Keir, Bob Ford and many others drug bumpers on the launch, very entertaining show. Yes, we'll have them back next year! And finally a big thanks to the race fans, racers and crewmembers and the Mason Dixon staff / owners for making the event run smoothly. This week coming it's Truck Warz time. Test & Tune on Sat. And the big event, Truck Warz (1/8th Mile) on Sunday, first time run is at 11:30am See you at Mason Dixon Dragway this coming weekend! 

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. On Sunday, the main event for the Stock / Super Stock racers and Test & t Tune also. Also don't forget the Diesel truck and gas Trucks on Sunday Nov. 101th. Lastly a big WELCOME to South Mountain Raceway, they now have joined the SBRA family and will compete at the SBRA Bracket Finals next October at Mason Dixon Dragway. Welcome aboard team South Mountain! They will be a great addition to the SBRA family.  See you this weekend at Mason Dixon Dragway!

Wednesday  --  Oct. 16th
 
Day one of the SBRA 5 day bracket finals had to be cancelled, a steady all day rain gave us no chance to race.
 
Thursday  --  Oct. 17th
 
What a day, very windy, gusty and cloudy almost the entire day, temps only in the low 50's, but we went racing! We started at 3 PM with all classes getting one time run / qualifier pass. The Junior Dragsters had 18 entries and in the final, maybe the best race of the day, Corine Campbell had a .009 light to barely win out over Chase Huber who was right there with .012 light. Great race there. Bike had Dale Hamilton winning over Dave Clinedinst. Pro category was won by Britt Olson over Scott Drayer, both excellent second generation racers. Super had Blase Raia over Paul Burruss who fouled with a .0001 red light. Great racing all evening, minimal down time. 220 entries raced today. We finished up at 8 PM.
 
Friday  --  Oct. 18th
 
Another Gamblers Race, this time way better weather temps reached 60 degrees but still a pretty good breeze, not gusty though, good racing conditions. We got underway at noon. Junior Dragsters had a lot more entries, Brooke Harper winning out over Liberti Ferster. In Bike we had a repeat winner as Dale Hamilton won over Brian Canoles. Pro had Devon Dudley getting a win over Troy Gerhart. Finally Super had Kevin Romeo over Steve Lenig. 333 entries raced today. We finished up right at 10 PM. Another day that went well.
 
Saturday  -- Oct. 19th
 
Now we had a decision to make, with impeding rain forecasted for Sunday we made the main event points race to run on Saturday. Great weather today, low 60's and the wind was gone, it did cloud up as the day wore on. We also included any Gamblers drivers to enter this race also, a good call there. We started right at 9 am and ran the entire Junior Dragster race before any other classes raced. In the final Bret Holston won over Steve Dustin. 35 Junior Dragsters competed in the 7 round race. With the Juniors finishing up about 11:30 am we were ready with the big cars. In a big field of Bikes Brian Snyder won out over Derrick Crawford. Pro was the big class, 146 cars it was Tim Foskey winning over Brian Cool and finally in Super  Delbert Baldwin won over Clayton Garber. Again, great racing all day. 333 racers participated today. We finished up at 7:30 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. Gary Gore and Hayne Dominick were with us and helped greatly with the Gambler races and tallying points.....Oh yeah, the Beaver Springs team did it again this year out gunning all the rest of the tracks. It was Beaver Springs, Mason Dixon, Eastside, US 13, Keystone and Colonial Beach. Great job everybody, we'll do it again next year. We are still open all the way to Nov. 24th. Hope to see you soon at Mason Dixon Dragway!

Saturday  --  Oct. 12th
 
This was a "King of the Track" event and Test & Tune  with our "Slant 6" racers running their fall event. The weather was good, temps in the upper 60's and a bit cloudy, real good drag racing weather. In Super Justin Crider won over Steve Morgret. Pro winner was Dave Slusher Jr. over Dahryl Clark. Sportsman class had James Standifer winning over Dave Toms. And finally Bike had Dale Hamilton over Brian Canoles. The "Slant 6" gang had seven entries and Rick Covalt won over Ryan Covalt. Now for the "King of the Track" part of the racing. In the final, Dale Hamilton won out over James Standifer. An overall good day, a nice mix of our usual Summit ET racers and Test & Tune cars put on a good show, we finished up at 6:30 PM. By the way, we had former racer Vernon Cockrell getting his "Second Wind Dream" granted today as the 80 year old resident of senior living Elmcrest of Hagerstown got to make a ride along pass down the track in front of friends and family, a run in the low 14's at 98 mph and then had a group photo taken in the winners circle too. Vernon was at Mason Dixon Dragway way back when the track opened in 1961, he raced with us up to the 2001 racing season.
