Everything for this weekend is on schedule and we look forward to a great weekend of racing!

We are watching this weekend’s weather and will make adjustments to the schedule as needed to complete the DME Racing Fall Nationals and crown all of our champions.

As of now, Friday and Saturday’s forecast looks great with no chance of rain, and they are only calling for a 60% chance on Sunday. Our plan now is to stick with our original schedule while we wait to see if Sunday’s forecast improves.

If Sunday’s forecast does not improve, we will possibly start Sunday’s eliminations for all classes on Saturday evening. Our curfew on Saturday is 1am, so we have a lot of track time available.

Vance & Hines 4.60 Index, Orient Express Pro Street and DME Racing Real Street have 1 qualifier on Friday night at 8pm, and 3 more on Saturday at 1pm, 4pm and 7pm. There is a chance that we may cut the 7pm qualifier on Saturday instead, and start 1st round of Pros at 7pm if Sunday’s forecast does not improve.

Also, we do still plan to run the “Running of the Bulls” program on Saturday night as scheduled.

Any rounds that we’re unable to complete on Saturday would get finished up on Sunday, and we could start racing on Sunday as early as 9am.

If we are unable to finish a certain class or round, then points will only be issued up to the last completed round for that class. All Championships and Top 10 in points will be final.

So head to Maryland Int’l Raceway, as the XDA and MDIR crew are going to give it their all to have a great race, give away stacks of cash and have a great time!
