Maryland Int’l Raceway launched its next phase of construction with the demolition of the concession and restroom facilities on the pit side of the raceway. These facilities have served racers and fans for 40 years, since the very first event at Budds Creek in July of 1967.
So what does this next phase of construction mean for the MIR racers and fans? For the MIR concessions, it means more menu choices, new signature items and minimized wait times for fans anxious to get back to the grandstands to enjoy the racing action. These benefits are provided by its larger and modernized kitchen that offers expanded capabilities in preparation and point of sale.
The new, well-illuminated restrooms are very spacious (triple the size of the previous restrooms). All equipment will feature “hands free” infrared sensors to provide the highest level of sanitation. Also, the entrance to both restrooms will now conveniently face the midway, behind the grandstands. Johnny-B-Clean Custodial Services will continue to service all restrooms during each and every event to maintain cleanliness of the facility.
Development and construction costs for the new 4,000 square-foot, two building project as well as the resurfacing and overlay of all of the old asphalt in the entire pit area will collectively reach nearly half of a million dollars. Though it’s an investment well worth the cost for our racers and fans; and another milestone reached to ensure the utmost in customer comfort, enjoyment and entertainment at Budds Creek
