MCID is delaying our 2020 season opener . Our projected opening race date will be moved to June 5-7. MCID is working on a complete schedule revision. Please stay tuned for the updated schedule. MCID feels the health and safety of everyone is more important than taking the chance of anyone getting the virus. I hope you can understand our dilemma. We ask for your understanding and patience.
Thank you, MCID.

Please keep his family in your prayers ! 🙏🙏🙏🙏James “Jim” A. Duchsherer---68, Minot, passed away on Saturday, April 18, 2020 at his home surrounded by his three children.

James “Jim” Anton Duchsherer was born on Nov. 7, 1951, a son of Anton B. and Dorothy Ann Duchsherer, at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Minot. He was raised in Surrey and attended Surrey Public School, St. Leo’s Catholic School, and Bishop Ryan High School before graduating from Minot High School in 1969.

In 1984, he incorporated the business as Jim’s Welding, Inc. While Jim never had formal welding training, he could repair anything made of metal and often made the items stronger. He enjoyed the challenge of fabricating customers’ needs and found satisfaction in a finished project. Jim was grateful for his customers and the trust and relationships he developed with them over the decades.

Currently there are so many unknowns relating to the Coronavirus in our state that it is impossible for us to say when we might be able to return to drag racing in 2020. We hope everyone is staying at home if possible and are safe and healthy. ...
