Wednesday, September 10, 2014

Local racer and Memphis International Raceway (MIR) regular, Mark Meadows, claims this year's IHRA Division 4 Renegades championship title in the Quick Rod class. Meadows will be one of 117 drivers from 22 states and four Canadian provinces to participate in the 2014 Summit Tournament of Champions at MIR on October 10 -11.


For the last seven months, the IHRA Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am Tour has toured more than a dozen locations across the country. Sportsman racers battled it out for the championship title and for the opportunity to compete in this year's Tournament of Champions. Mark Meadows competed in his "hometown" tracks IHRA Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am and swept the Quick Rod class when he doubled-up with two wins in the double header weekend  at MIR. The Double Grove, Ark. native then went on to compete at other tours throughout the season to secure his championship title. He won over second-place finisher, Christopher Dodd by one point.

"Congratulations to Mark on winning the IHRA Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am divisional championship," stated Pam Kendrick, VP and GM of Memphis International Raceway. "He's been a part of our MIR racer family for awhile now and it's great to see Mark bring home the championship. We're looking forward to him joining us on Team Memphis for the third straight year and watching him race in the Summit Tournament of Champions."

In 2012, MIR ran their first full season of the Summit Bracket Racing Series presented by COMP Cams and Meadows has competed in the sportsman program each year.  His consistent finishes, wins and runner-ups along the way have put him on Team Memphis every year.  Last year Meadows took home the runner-up trophy at the IHRA Team Finals and helped catapult the team to their second IHRA Team Finals championship in two years.
