Mega MOPAR Action Series Rounds out the Weekend of Activities at MIR

Monday, June 9, 2014

The second annual Mega MOPAR Action Series event at Memphis International Raceway (MIR) was filled with power, performance and gorgeous cars and trucks. The event offered something for everyone with a car show, swap meet, NASA Autocross and racing action on the historic drag strip. MIR brought together those with a passion for MOPAR – racers and fans alike.

 



MOPAR enthusiasts came out bright and early Sunday morning to put their favorite manufacturer’s vehicles on display. Car and truck show participates had an opportunity to take home awards in over 15 different categories and compete for the coveted Best in Show award. Murray Cassoutt from St. Mary, Mo. with his 1967 Dart Convertible walked away the big winner with the A Body Stock award and Best in Show.

On the drag strip, the action heated up as racers competed in the HEMI Challenge, Tuff Truck, S&W Race Cars Challenger Shootout, Street MOPAR, Bracket 1 and Bracket 2 races. The local racers dominated eliminations as four of the six winners hail from Millington, Tenn. The trophies were awarded to: Kelly Jones - HEMI Challenge, Billy Bennett -Tuff Truck, Jodi Hilton - S&W Race Cars Challenger Shootout, Douglas Vincent – Street MOPAR, Ron Minton – Bracket 1 and Cliff Hubbard – Bracket 2.

“We’d like to thank the fans and racers for coming out to Memphis International Raceway,” stated Pam Kendrick, VP & GM of Memphis International Raceway. “The weather held off and it ended up being a beautiful day at the race track.
