"R.T. Turbines is pleased to once again be a part of the Memphis International Raceway's core drag racing program, the Summit Bracket Racing Series presented by COMP Cams. We will continue to support what we feel is the future of our sport, the Junior Dragster division. We have witnessed first-hand the results of the younger generation having participated in this program and take great pride in being a sponsor of this fine program, along with the ever-fun DOT series. With our partnership in 2013 the R. T.
