    Default Mid Atlantic MN12 Private Rental - Mason Dixon

    It's that time again, when the local Tbird/Cougar/Mark 8 club is trying to put together a private track rental for Mason Dixon. We need 30 cars to make this happen, and right now we are at 16, so at this point we're inviting whoever wants to come along, with whatever it takes to get to 30 to make this happen.

    Event will be Saturday, August 23rd, 8am until noon.

    Price is $75 per car.

    This gets you 4 hours, unlimited runs, at Mason Dixon, with probably no more than 35-40 cars. I've actually seen people get up to 28 runs before.

    If anyone is serious, I'll send the information for registration. At this point, we need commitments, and if anyone pays, and the event doesn't happen, everyone will receive a full refund.

    Short commute = long time getting to 1000 miles.

    I do need to get some passes in before I head to MIR. When do you need to know by?

    ASAP would be best, don't think we have a cutoff date in mind yet. If we don't get to 30, we'll be taking reservations up til last minute. If we do get to 30, we'll take any extras that want to come along (but don't let that influence your decision). Best way to insure this happens is to jump on board.

    If it helps, I have a friend already paid and confirmed that's bring a C5 with some mild work...runs mid-12's on street tires.

    Are they going to be lenient on tech? I doubt I would be making any single digit passes but should be trapping around 140.

    Normal NHRA specific rules still apply as usual at Mason Dixon (helmets for 13.9 and under, cage for 11.49 and under, etc).

    I heard they got more strict there. Years ago you could run 10's at MD without a cage. Normally during rentals they let stuff go. I have a cage but its only a 4-point. The GF reminded me that we have a wedding that day anyways.

    Went to this track 2 years ago, it was different and a good one. The journey sucks though, 3+ hours one way from our location. Still we have interest for 2 more machines.
    Too bad your group wasn't renting out PRP I'd definitely go without a doubt. That's a 2 hour trip and much less mountains.

    3 hours from Fairmont? Dag, lol. I can make it from my house (half hour south of Hagerstown) to Burnsville in 3.5 hours.

    I was there for a rental earlier this year and a blast.

    They didn't even look at the cars as far as tech so no worries here. I never got a second look.

    The track wasn't prepped very well for the rental so go and have fun. If they have a test and tune after the rental, they will prep and then you can get your time if you want to hang around. I used the rental to get bugs worked out and had it hooking well on low tire pressure. Then they prepped for the TnT and I about spun a tire on a rim. I upped the tire pressure and made some changes, was on my way to a personal best when my boost controller spiked and took out a head gasket. I still had a blast and recommend the event to everyone. Just remember to keep the street tires in the lane without water in the box. If not some of the guys running drag tires will get grumpy.
