If you wish to add entries, please let me know ASAP so I can ensure I have the correct number of tires and motors for you. You may pay additional entries at the event.

About 180 Raceway:
180 Raceway, formerly MRH is a small, racer owned & operated indoor carpet on-road race track located in Middle River, Maryland about 20 miles northeast of Baltimore. Last season we were able to update to CRC Fasttrak2 “Black” carpet. Pit spacing around the track is ample, but please PM any special requests to me. The nearest airport to 180 Raceway is BWI, & there are several hotel & motel options available within 15-20 minute drive. There are several places to eat within our shopping center, and even more around the area and at White Marsh Mall, only about 15 minutes away that provide excellent dinner options. If you find yourself bored at any time, there is also an Autobahn Indoor Kart track about 20 minutes from 180.

Track Address:
164 Carroll Island Rd. Middle River, MD 21220

Hotel:
Working on getting a reduced rate at a nearby hotel. In the meantime, the following link provides a listing of nearby hotels:


Hotels in the White Marsh area will be the nicest. E.g. Home2, Hampton Inn, Fairfield Inn, Woodspring in no particular order.

That's right, USVTA... break out that JRXS!

Sorry for being so quiet on here, things have been busy. I am happy to announce that Team Scream has joined as a class sponsor, covering the 1/12 Pro Stock class! We also have recently added Team Powers and SXT to our list of fantastic supporters! SXT 3.0 will be the spec sauce again this year, and each racer will receive 1 free bottle at check-in.

There has been a lot of positive buzz around Can Am as well as this event itself lately. Some of which stemmed from the awesome NYGP event just held at 360v2 in NY last weekend. It was good to see so many racers giving Can Am a try, and reassuring to hear so much positive feedback. I was also happy to be there to learn more about Can Am myself and prepare for Stock Wars to be as good as can be. Big shoes to fill trying to follow the example set by the 360v2 crew, but I thank them for the effort and leading the way!

A couple things we will follow from NYGP are the daily/nightly distribution and return of motors. This prevents tampering when folks get bored in their hotel room. Another item will be a fixed gear for the 1/12 Stock classes. The gear is TBA as I would like to see how well that same gearing works at Halloween Classic.

Looking forward to racing with everyone again soon!
