Welcome to MANDRA! 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!

The gates officially open at 10 AM, time trials start at 11 AM, as of this morning we have not received a response from Island Dragway regarding MANDRA’s admission price for racers.
