Car racing is a fast fun nitro infused sport for profit or recreation. More do it for recreation than for profit, as the rare few make it to the money rounds. Many who get bit by this bug end up spending tons of money on parts and upgrades, all to just go a few thousandths of a second faster than the last run.
If you are one of brave men and women who drag race around the capitol, and feel the need for speed this weekend, here are the places where you can find relief inside of Maryland.
