A Look at Fun Ford Weekend at MIR

Sunday, June 8, 2014

Ford enthusiasts spent Saturday at Memphis International Raceway celebrating their favorite manufacturer. The day included all things Ford with a car show, swap meet, on-track drag racing, autocross and a Ford Mustang parade to celebrate the 50th anniversary. The day was capped off with a live performance from Nashville singer/songwriter Jordan Allena.


The Ford exclusive car show was one of the largest in the area with over 20 different class winners. On-track, racers competed for bragging rights in the MustangGuys.com Fastest 5.0 Shootout presented by S&W Race Cars, Street Ford, Fast Ford Challenge and the Quick Ford Challenge. Kids also got in on the action as they took part in the famous Revell Make 'N Take and built their very own 1936 Ford Coupe.

"It was a good day for our Ford fans," remarked Pam Kendrick, VP & GM of Memphis International Raceway. "We are thankful for the racers, area car clubs and Ford fans that attend and support this event.  With their support, Fun Ford Weekend at MIR will continue to be a tradition at Memphis International Raceway. We hope everyone had a wonderful experience."
