The Greater Cumberland Raceway in action this weekend – in rain, snow, ice or sunshine
The sound of racing engines will once again ricochet off the rock face in Cumberland, Maryland.
This 1/2 mile dirt track just nearly escaped the bulldozers last year. Fans gathered together, as a group they saved the track from demolition.

Now, the 1st annual Mudd Classic 100 will be run this weekend. On Saturday March 18th 2017 at The Greater Cumberland Raceway.
After years of sitting ideal the Allegany County Fairgrounds will roar back to life with the running of the Mudd Classic 100 Enduro race. The race will be run with a time limit of 2 hours or 100 laps whichever comes first.
The winner will receive $500 with second place taking home $200 and third will receive $100. We have added for the fourth and fifth place finisher’s free registration to the August Enduro.
The race will go on in rain, snow, ice, or sunshine. A lot of hard work by a great group of people has brought life back to fairgrounds.
Tons of long hours and long days will finally pay off this coming weekend as cars will grace the racing surface for the first time in nearly three years. Grandstands admission will be $10 with kids under 12 FREE and pit admission will be $20. The Mudd Classic is just the start of the 2017 racing season that will see 16 races over the course of the next 7 months.
The Maryland dirt track was formerly known as Rock Allegany County Speedway.
