Tuesday, July 29, 2014

The Summit Bracket Racing Series presented by COMP Cams took over Memphis International Raceway (MIR) over the weekend as drivers competed on Saturday and Sunday. The double header produced six first-time winners for this season and David Ciarloni took over the points lead in the B&B Towing Footbrake class.   


In addition, the Stock/ Super Stock combination races ran on Saturday evening. 17 drivers entered into the bonus race and Don Cossey from Memphis walked away the winner.
