About Memphis International Raceway 

Memphis International Raceway™ (MIR) is a state-of-the-art, acclaimed motorsports facility featuring a formidable 1.8-mile asphalt Road Course, a riveting 1/4-mile Drag Strip, and an enthralling 3/4-mile Tri-Oval Short Track. The high performance Road Course is considered among the most competitive in the Mid-South with 8 turns and a 3,500-foot straightaway. Hosting such premier events as the IHRA Summit World Finals, Super Chevy Show and the American Drag Racing League's Memphis Drags IV, the Drag Strip was built to IHRA and NHRA specifications, and its track, concrete to the 1/8-mile, was milled and polished by Penhall. Twelve private Suites offer an optimized vantage point for drag racing fans. Home to the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience and built to NASCAR specifications, the paved Tri-Oval Short Track consists of 11-degree banked turns, 4-degree straightaways, and an 1,100-foot backstretch with ample bleachers and 16 VIP Suites. The Tri-Oval Short Track hosts racing events from the Porsche Club of America, Sports Car Club of America, and ARCA/CRA Super Series. Acquired in 2011 by IRG Sports + Entertainment™ (IRG), the 342-acre MIR reopened in 2011 to a series of enhancements including additional grandstands, equipment upgrades and a refurbishment of the paved Tri-Oval Short Track. In May 2013, the Road Course underwent a major renovation with a resurfacing of the entire course. IRG also owns and operates Palm Beach International Raceway™, Southwestern International Raceway™, and the International Hot Rod Association™.
