The Mickey Thompson Tires International Drag Bike League (IDBL) is the new name of the former MIROCK Superbikes Series. Budds Creek will once again host the famous Spring Nationals on April 24-25, Summer Nationals on May 29-31, Bike Fest on July 24-26, and Fall Nationals on October 2-4. These are the largest participant events on our schedule, each drawing between 700-800 motorcycle racers. IDBL features 1/4 mile 5-second, 240mph Top Fuel motorcycles and 6-second, 220mph Orient Express Pro Street bikes along with hundreds of sportsman motorcycle racers.

The first special event of the season will be the 7th annual Door Wars on April 17-19. This event has grown every year and is quickly becoming MIR's signature Outlaw event. It features the Northeast Outlaw Pro Mod Association. The Outlaw 10.5 series is back along with Outlaw Drag Radial and X275 on the 1/8 mile as they hang the wheels to the finish line. The “Pros vs Joes” $5,000 Top Sportsman class is also back on the 1/8 mile and the pits will be packed with nearly 100 of the baddest Top Sportsman cars you have ever seen.

The Mountain Motor Nationals on May 8-9 and the Snap-On Tools Superchargers Showdown on September 25-26 have been dubbed the "Pomonas" of MDIR. Both will continue to be Friday and Saturday events with $5k to win in Top E.T. each day. These events will feature the Northeast Outlaw Pro Mod Association as they run the full 1/4 mile. With spring and fall temperatures coupled with the famous MDIR prepped 1/4 mile, the records won’t stand a chance.

The IHRA Nitro Jam President's Cup Nationals on June 19-21 just got even more exciting. The wild, nitrous-injected, supercharged and turbocharged Pro Mods are now back at IHRA and will be running the full 1/4 mile! Race fans will also witness Nostalgia Nitro Funny Cars, Top Fuel Harleys, Jet Cars and the MDIR fan favorite Mountain Motor Pro Stocks on the 1/4 mile. The event will also include hundreds of sportsman racers. If you want it fast and on the 1/4 mile, then mark down the IHRA Nitro Jam President's Cup Nationals on your calendars and stay in touch with the website for more details.
