    75-80 Dragway, at the intersection of Routes 75 and 80 in Monrovia, Maryland, will have an IHTA sanction for the 2009 season.

    ?We are very happy to be joining the IHRA family of tracks,? said track operator Lisa Stanley-Willis. ?Everyone at IHRA has been very welcoming and informative. We look forward to an incredible year of racing.?

    While still owned by 75-80 Dragway Inc., the property is now managed by Heads Up Racing Inc. and competes by heads up racing rules only. The track features eighth-mile racing on Fridays and Saturdays and quarter-mile racing on Sundays. The track will also showcase the Teen Championship Racing Program to help provide a safe forum for drag racers across the area

    Andy - Assuming this deal is still going, Milan (for those not from MI, it's pronounced "MY lun") has no issue with steady income. When I left Michigan, AVL was renting the track during the week and us racers got it on the weekend. AVL had it set up so that their test cars could run the track and loop back at a fair speed on the return road, making a loop of about a mile. The income from this made it possible for Milan to add the improvements that happened about 2005, IIRC.

    Since the economy tanked I don't know if this is still in place.

    Still cool that they have NHRA sanctioning. From a racer's point of view, it seemed like it ran better under NHRA, at least to me.

    Think they'll still have the wheelstand contest?
