It is with deep regret that the Merrill Ice Draggers Inc. has made the difficult decision to cancel the up coming 2021 Season due to the public health crisis of Covid-19. This was not a decision made lightly and it is a true shame it has to happen. M.I.D takes great pride in our event and as always, the safety of our racers, spectators, volunteers, crew members and our sponsors are our #1 priority. We appreciate your continued support and interest in this legendary event spanning now 55 years. Our intent is to hold our event next season in 2022 and make it better than ever. During this long cold winter, we would love to hear from racers and fans on our fb page Merrill Ice Drags and our web site merrillicedrags.com. Share pictures of your cars. Videos of you working and any old videos and pictures you may have from the past 55 years. We are not going away; we are tapping the brakes for a bit in order to keep the safety of our event at the forefront. We wish you all well and we will see you all on the ice in 2022!
