This will be in Southern MD at Bud's Creek (Maryland International Raceway, <A HREF="http://www.mirdrag.com)" TARGET=_blank>www.mirdrag.com)</A> in July. A combination car show for modified imports and a drag race event. Not really for stock cars. Mostly Japanese stuff but there is a generic Euro class. I usually go if the weather's nice just to remind this crowd that Volvos can be cool.

The link will work, just cut it and paste it into your browser location bar. You can't just click on it because it does not have the "http://" in front of it.<P>This event is on July 13th and 14th. I will probably only go on Sunday since that is the biggest day of the show but there's usually a good crowd on both days.<P>Yes, it's mostly **** burning, but there are usually a few BMW's and Mercedes. Even saw an Alfa once. I have never seen another Volvo on display but I have seen a few 850's show up to make runs at the track. My car is not competative for a trophy because I have not done any fancy graphics or painted my interior silly colors, but I enjoy the chance to air it out.

I'll be at FedEx field doing an auto-x on the 14th. How late does the event usually last on Sunday? Maybe I can make it down there on one of the two days.<P>

Gates open at 8:00 am and the show usually lasts until around 5:00 or 6:00 pm. If you're doing the autocross, you won't be done in time. It's about and hour from FedEx to Bud's Creek.

Whoops! My bad. Car show is ONLY on Sunday. Saturday is just time trial for the drag races.

I guess I won't make it. Last time I ran the last afternoon session and got out of there around 4:30, but that doesn't leave much time to get down to MIR.<P>

I was just thinking, maybe it will rain and the car show will be postponed, but the auto-x will go on. Then I can do both. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>

Didn't go. Rain. Along with Carlisle that makes two shows in a row that I didn't get to because of rain. One of these days...<P>Will try to get to the autocross instead.

Paul, it was nice to finally meet you. I hope you can make it out to the next auto-x with your car.<P>When there was the Swedespeed show&shine this past April in Annapolis, there was some mention of doing another one near the end of the summer.<P>George, what are the chances of having another show?<P>
