    Went for the first time to the International Pro Mod Challenge and loved it. I'm a road racing guy and have never been to a dragstrip, but this was nice. Facilities are super clean, bathrooms have attendants who keep them spotless, and even the food is pretty good for track food. The officials have incredible attention to detail on track prep, so the racers have a consistent and safe surface to make passes. Overall very impressed with MIR.
