MDIR Announces Addition of Ray’s Siding No Clock Street List & Shootout at Midnight Madness for 2018

MECHANICSVILLE, MARYLAND (February 21, 2018) – Maryland International Raceway ™ (MDIR) proudly announces the addition of the new and exciting Rays Siding No Clock Street List and Shootout program to the Speed Unlimited Performance Midnight Madness events beginning with the Friday, April 20 season kick-off date.

The new Ray’s Siding No Clock Street List program is a no time and no time slips, heads up, pro tree, Top 10 style class ran on the 1000’ with callouts between list racers & shootouts where the shootout winner gets a shot at number 10 on the list.

The program will begin at the April 20 event with the initial shootout eliminations to determine the “first-ever” Ray’s Siding No Clock Street Top 10 List. Once the initial list is established, moving forward, only the winner of the event shootout at subsequent Speed Unlimited Midnight Madness dates will get a chance to race for the number 10 spot. The shootout will be the same as The List races, including pro tree starts with a single elimination bracket. At each event including the April 20 opener, the Shootout program will include $500 to the winner along with a 4’ tall trophy and a 3’ tall trophy to the runner up all season courtesy of Ray’s Siding and Maryland International Raceway. A running Top 10 list graphic including driver photos will be created and maintained throughout the season for both racers and fans to enjoy and talk smack about and an end-of-season Top 10 list will also be established and carried forward to following seasons.

The shootout class run at all nine Speed Unlimited Midnight Madness events will be paired randomly at the front of staging lanes with a deck of cards, including a bye run in case of an odd number, as the cars are pulling out of the lanes onto the pad behind the water box. For each pair 2 cards will be drawn, by an official from the deck. If the 2 cards are red, 2 cars from the right lane will run each other with first car having lane choice. If 2 cards are black, 2 cars from the left lane will run each other with first car having lane choice. If 1 card is red and the other black, then 1 car from each lane will run each other in their respective lanes.

To be a part of this exciting new program, all shootout competitors must meet all the rules stated (see complete rules link below).

All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community.
