Shattered records are the new normal when the Mickey Thompson MIROCK Superbike Series unloads at Maryland International Raceway, and those records aren’t confined to Budd’s Creek’s super-sticky quarter mile.

Headlining the event was the $10,000-to-win, Orient Express Pro Street Battle Royale, emptying the US and Caribbean islands of virtually every Pro Street bike in the Western Hemisphere.
