The MDR Story

MDR Motorsports came to fruition from a decades old passion for auto racing. With the growing costs of motorsports, the affordability, camaraderie and intense competition of ChampCar drew us to the series.

Our main focus, along with fielding competitive race cars, is to bring traveling and racing at historic race tracks all across North America that used to be a pipe dream a reality.

To accomplish this, we chose a platform that we all know and love, the Mazda Miata. The MDR prepped Miata is a competitive and reliable race car offering us the ability to spend less time diagnosing issues and instead dialing in and concentrating on taking the team to the front.

MDR offers full race weekend packages and our team has seats available for many races on our Schedule. We’d love to have you Come Race With Us.

“Do it no matter what. If you believe in it, it is something very honorable. If somebody around you or your family does not understand it, then that’s their problem. But if you do have a passion, an honest passion, just do it.”
