The Xtreme Dragbike Association's season-ending DME Fall Nationals (click for schedule) will be held at Maryland International Raceway from Sep 21-23. All COG members are invited to southern Maryland for a breakfast "meet and greet" and a ride on Sunday, September 23, 2018, even if you don't want to attend the races!

We will meet at 8:00 AM for breakfast at the IHOP at 116 Rosewick Rd, La Plata, MD (this is subject to change based on rider preference, but we'll base it there for now to have a common start point). From the Capital Beltway and I-95, in Maryland, take exit 7 (Maryland Route 5) and go south for 21 miles (Route 5 will eventually merge with, and split from, US 301; at the split in Waldorf, stay on US 301) until you reach Rosewick Road. Make a left, and the IHOP will be the first left into the shopping center.

We will leave IHOP at approximately 9:00 AM for a 62-mile ride on the Nanjemoy Loop. Once completed and after taking a breather and a fuel break, there is a further 48-mile romp in southeastern Charles County that will end at the racetrack in time for the start of eliminations and the final round trials at 11am. The gates close at 7p that night, and we can definitely grab a bite before folks head back home.

In addition to your food and fuel, a one-day pass to the track is $20. You are not obligated to stay for all of the races. It's your $20!  :D

Register at the COG event link so that we can get a head count.

The route is attached below. If you have Google Maps, here's a link to the map with all COG Southern Maryland routes. The Namjemoy Loop route starts at the Dash-In in White Plains and ends at an Exxon station in La Plata. The MIR Ride route starts at the Exxon in La Plata and ends at the raceway.

XDA has moved all Sunday track activities to Saturday night due to expected inclement weather. As such, I have postponed this event for the time being. Stay tuned for a makeup date. Apologies fo r the inconvenience.
