The first award of the evening was handed to one of MIR’s staff members. The Employee Recognition of Excellence was given to Lisa Thompson, who works Security, Intersection, and occasionally in the water box.

The first set of champions to be introduced were from the Late Model Performance Midnight Madness series which runs on select Friday nights. First up was Francis Proctor of Mechanicsville, Maryland who was awarded the Bracket Bike Racing Matters Motorcycle Grand Champion trophy and jacket. Keith Burch of Mechanicsville, Maryland was the next to be introduced and awarded the Grand Champion trophy and jacket.

The final three to be introduced were from the 1320 Fabrication ET Series presented by East Coast Collision. 17-year-old Jordan Denny of Nokesville, Virginia was announced as the Hubble Motorsports Junior Dragster Champion and received his third MIR championship trophy running in the Hubble Motorsports Junior Dragsters. Next, for Mod ET, AJ Jenkins of Mechanicsville, Maryland was presented his second MIR championship trophy. His other championship came in 2015 while in the Hubble Motorsports Junior Dragster program. Robbie Parlett of Prince Fredrick, Maryland was then called to the stage to accept his third championship trophy in Top ET. Parlett’s championship ties him for most all time in Top ET with three other drivers.
