We were blessed with sunny skies and comfortable Fall temperatures for the grand finale of the racing season, known as the Haltech World Cup Finals aka Import vs. Domestic which highlights drag racing action from all over the world. This event stretches out over 5 days with record breaking racing. The Miller Brothers Production team and the entire Maryland International Raceway staff worked around the clock to make sure the track was prepped and ready for action. The crowd was hype and excited once the races began.

Pre-registration for Import vs Domestic is very limited and filled up quickly. These races are made up of some of the highest horsepower street cars on the planet. The event draws hundreds of Heads-Up racers competing for over $180,000 in cash prizes. Even some of the top motorcycle racers in the country show up and show out. Being a biker, I was excited to see this class at Import vs Domestic

Import vs. Domestic is the meeting place where racers converge onto one track to settle the score. It is nothing short of amazing to see cars run the ¼ mile in record numbers. Some of the trailers at the event even looked like car shops. After passes, we witnessed motors being replaced, axels being swapped and a lot of wrench work. With the 2,300′ vendor midway one could easily purchase something as small spark plugs and car care products all the way up to Mickey Thompson tires and a turbo charger from Haltech.

Import vs. Domestic served as the perfect venue to break out the Toyota GR86. It was a pure show stopper as people stared as I rolled through the parking lot. The conversation that took place immediately veered to the Neptune Blue hue and the 2.4-liter 4-cylinder boxer DOHC 16v engine paired with a six-speed manual close ratio transmission that kicks outs 228 horses under the hood.  The GR86 immediately grabs you as a sporty vehicle upon first look, and once you see it in action, the truth is revealed. It was encouraging to see the excitement from the car community about the Toyota GR86.




Jason and Chris aka the Miller brothers, along with their entire team, have spent countless hours to revamp the event and make it better than ever. I did miss the custom car show that usually takes place but I understand why it was pulled. There simply was not enough room for it. So unless MIR creates more space, I believe that WCF will be all about the races.

MBP and the Maryland International Raceway staff were more than gracious to all involved including the racers, vendors, media and the patrons. This year WCF brought in over 46,000 patrons with 23+ Countries in attendance and 180+ different countries watching the live feed! WCF just keeps getting bigger and better every year!
