MIR Featured on the “Edge” with Terry Bradshaw

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

The Edge TV show with NFL superstar, Terry Bradshaw, will give fans a behind the scenes look at the multi-faceted facility of Memphis International Raceway (MIR) this week. The feature will air on FOX SportsSouth on Wednesday, August 13 and Thursday, August 14 at 8:30 a.m. ET.

The Edge uncovers, researches and presents interesting stories of people, teams and sporting facilities at the cutting edge of the competition to survive, thrive and excel. Whether its “David versus Goliath” stories of the “little enterprise that could” … or news of individuals who have beaten insurmountable odds and rallied to achieve their own personal best … The Edge focuses on the pinnacle of human endeavors — what drives us to surpass expectations and find new heights to conquer.

The feature segment takes people behind the scenes to get a glimpse into what makes MIR one of the best race tracks in the mid-south. The 300+ acre facility includes a historic drag strip, a paved tri-oval and a 1.7-mile road course and hosts events 10-months out of a year. The event schedule includes everything from IHRA Summit Racing Equipment World Finals featuring Nitro Jam Nationals to weekly Test N Tune’s for anyone that wants to race the historic drag strip. The facility isn’t just about racing though – catch a live concert at the track or attend the mid-south’s largest Chevrolet show, Super Chevy.   MIR has a competitive edge and something to offer everyone in the Bluff City.

NFL football legend, Terry Bradshaw teamed with United States Media Television to help fans and viewers find The Edge for themselves. The program comes into approximately 90 million households nationwide each day, nationally on networks like Versus, ESPN2 and Fox Sports Net. Segments are shot on location around the world and produced at USMT’s 22,500 square foot studios and corporate headquarters in Coral Springs, Florida.
