We are a group of friends and racers united for one purpose: Promoting nostalgia drag racing in the mid-Atlantic region.
Our members are as varied as their cars. They come from all walks of life, but race as one group. At our races you will find friendship and comradery, instead of cutthroat competition Don’t misunderstand - when two cars pair up at the starting line, the competition is real - each person wants to win - but it ends at the finish line.
Interested in racing with us? Here's a link to our application. Be sure to read our rules before applying for membership! Thanks!

Update July 25th
Just a few bits of info and an update on what has been happening with MANDRA and our racers/families...
I'm doing fine and getting better every day. I hope to be racing by Maple Grove. I do plan on attending the South Mountain race this Sunday as a spectator.
Josh (and Paul) Nevells had an unfortunate incident at BSD this past weekend. Josh lost his brakes on top end. Josh is okay, but the car is not. We wish the Hilltown Shaker team lots of luck in rebuilding the car and hope to see them back on the track soon.
Continue to keep Rebecca Yarrison in your thoughts and prayers.
Congratulations to Mark Santee on his victory in the Nostalgia Super Stock class at the York US30 Reunion at BSD. Mark is currently leading our points and is doing very well with MANDRA this year, although the "win" with MANDRA still eludes him.
This weekend's race at South Mountain is still on at this time. Remember, cancellations are decided by the track, not by me. Gates open at 8:30 AM with time trials to start at 10:30AM. FWG Racing is our sponsor for the event. I will keep everyone posted through email and facebook if there is a change in plans. In case of a rain-out this event will be run on Sunday, Sept 9 (South Mountain's Glory Days event). Check out the South Mountain website and take a look at the poster for the Glory Days event. Our own Ray Bloom's "Despicable" Willys is the poster boy!
FYI: South Mountain uses the "RainedOut" app which you can subscribe to (use the keyword Mandra racing). You can link to the app through South Mountain's facebook page. Notices are sent directly to your phone or email as soon as there is a cancellation made by the track.
The entry fee for this weekend is $50 per racer. This is an increase, but Mike is returning extra to the club. Many of the tracks are struggling this year with the loss of up to 50% of their races due to Mother Nature. MANDRA is finally back to our regular schedule after making up two rain-outs; I consider that to be good luck on our part and hopefully we can stay on schedule from here on out.
Updated points are attached. There has been some changes with a new leader and lots of close competition.
See you all Sunday!
Recap of South Mountain July 29th
"Twenty-two cars showed up at South Mountain on Sunday, July 29 for the FWG Racing sponsored event. Thanks to Mike Natoli and his crew at South Mountain for getting things in shape for the weekend's events due to the fact that Mother Nature gave them 12" of rain that week with the track under water on Wednesday. The track was in excellent condition for Sunday's race.
Tim Hansberry had low reaction time, but due to the even-numbered field, he did not receive a bye run. We almost had an all English Brothers final when semi-final action had Marc English and Pete Boyer facing each other with Pete taking the win. Bob English received an earned bye-run into the finals and took the victory over Pete in the finals when Pete ran under in a very close race. There was a lot of good racing with decisions of fractions of a second. MANDRA gave the crowd a good show. Congratulations to Bob English for his first win of the season and thanks again to everyone who participated and to the day's sponsor, Frankie G (FWG Racing). With half of the year's racing over, it looks like an exciting chase to the finish in the points race. Chris Righetti regained the top spot by five points and has many people knocking on his door! The English Brothers are making power moves and it is still anyone's championship.
The next race is this Sunday, August 5 at Island Dragway with AKL Racing as our sponsor and Cyclone Racing as the sponsor of the coveted Wally. Entry fee should be $45; make sure you tell the gatekeeper you are with MANDRA. Gates open at 9AM with time trials to start at 10AM and eliminations at 2PM."
See you soon,
Island Dragway Make-up Race
"To keep everyone informed on the reschedule of the Island race: the date that suits the track and works for our sponsors (AKL Racing and Cyclone Racing) is Sunday, September 9. I know this falls on the same weekend as the South Mountain Glory Days event, which is a non-points race that some of our members might be planning to attend. Sorry we had to schedule that day, but we're running out of options for make-ups. That is the nice thing about the 70% rule. We like everyone to be able to attend as many points races as they can, but the rule allows you to miss a few without affecting your points dramatically.
We hope to see you all on Saturday, August 18 at Maple Grove for their Glory Days event. This is a big race with a usually good turn-out for us. Bare Bones Racing is our sponsor. Gates open at 8AM. Check out Maple Grove's website for all the activities during the two-day (Friday and Saturday) event. The weather is looking good--keep your fingers crossed!"
