Event Preview: The PDRA North-South Shootout At MDIR

Maryland International Raceway will host the PDRA North-South Shootout once again in 2019. The PDRA will bring some of the best Pro Mod racing you’ll see to Maryland May 30-June 1 and you won’t want to miss any of the action. SpeedVideo is ready to capture every moment and you can see it all live RIGHT HERE.

Racers in the PDRA have the North-South Shootout on their calendars because it gives them a chance to come to one of the premier drag racing facilities on the east coast. Many of the teams are only a few hours away from MDIR so it gives them an opportunity to race in front of their family and fans. The North-South Shootout also is ultra important for collecting championship points, so teams will be ready to do what it takes to go rounds.

Fans will be getting an extra special treat during the PDRA North-South Shootout courtesy of Mother Nature. Since the finals of the Mid-Atlantic Showdown were rained out they will be contested during qualifying of the North-South Shootout. In Pro Boost, Tommy D’Aprile will take on Jerico Balduf in a matchup that will have huge implications on the points chase. Current Pro Nitrous points leader Jim Halsey will face Tommy Franklin for the Mid-South title. Extreme Pro Stock will see Jeff Dobbins and Tommy Lee run for the trophy at MDIR. Pro Outlaw 632 and Pro Nitrous Motorcycle will be running a few rounds of competition at the North-South Shootout to finish up the Mid-Atlantic Showdown.

The North-South Shootout will also have Outlaw 10.5 back in the mix as a part of the PDRA program. These small-tire warriors always put on a great show when they come to a PDRA event with a variety of cars and combinations on display. If you love fast and unpredictable racing action this is the class for you and it will be run at the PDRA North-South Shootout.

The PDRA North-South Shootout is coming to Maryland International Raceway May 30-June 1 and if you’re a fan of Pro Mod racing you will want to be in the stands. SpeedVideo.com will be on the property all weekend and you can see the race live RIGHT HERE if you can’t be at MDIR.
