The 2nd annual Haltech Hail Mary Derby presented by Wiseco returns to Maryland International Raceway on May 13-16, 2021! No classes and no rules… It’s all about track time, track prep and personal bests at the Derby!

Spectators are now welcome!

Cool spring air and legendary Jason Miller track prep has racers swinging for the fence with 3-4 sessions per day totaling up to 14 sessions for the event! If you need track time, the Derby is where you get it done. We are throwing out the classes and the rulebook at the Derby. Racers can run any turbo, any supercharger, any motor, any fuel, any weight, and any tire they want!

There are no eliminations at the Derby, only personal bests, bragging rights, and glory. You have all begged for more track time at events in conditions like this, so here is your chance to have fun, remove the pressure of a race and go for it. No Guts… No Glory!

Even though we are throwing out the classes and the rulebook, all racers must still comply with IHRA safety rules and all racers must have an engine diaper or belly pan.

Some racers will want to run 1/4 mile, and some will want to run 1/8 mile. We will accommodate both, and the scoreboards will remain lit all weekend! Call outs, Grudge Matches and Special Shootouts are welcomed! The Derby will have the same size and level of WCF/MDIR Track Official Staff along with the Fire & Safety Teams that all racers have come to expect to keep the pace rolling and everyone safe during this event.

There will only be 220 racer spots available allowing racers to get more runs per day at the Derby! Racer spots are not transferable or refundable.

Each race team is permitted to bring one Golf Cart, ATV or other Pit Bike to the Derby. No one else is permitted to bring Golf Carts, ATVs or other Pit Bikes. This rule will be strictly enforced.

All Derby racers will receive 1 extra vehicle pass at No Charge for an extra Motorhome or Car/Truck to fit in your pit space. The extra vehicle must fit beside your trailer in front of your race car. You can only claim your extra vehicle pass when you arrive at the gates with your race trailer. The extra vehicle or Motorhome must be behind your race trailer when you arrive in line.

We will run each group at the Derby in qualifying so racers, crew and media can see everyone’s best Hail Mary Pass! The qualified groups will be: All Motor, FWD, AWD, RWD Slick (1/8 & 1/4), RWD Radial (1/8 & 1/4).

This format and run order will allow Jason Miller and his team to prep for perfect conditions for each group and their needs on the track!
