Memphis International Raceway to Host Super Chevy Show and Fun Ford Weekend Events in 2012

Thursday, October 20, 2011
MILLINGTON, TN – October 20, 2011 – Bowties and Blue Ovals will take over Memphis for two weekends in 2012, as Memphis International Raceway will host both the Super Chevy Show Series and Fun Ford Weekend next race season.
Memphis International Raceway (MIR) is the second stop on the 13-city Super Chevy Show for the 2012 season. The three-day Chevrolet festival will take place the weekend of April 13-15. The weekend’s events will include a car show, swap meet and drag race.
In September, Fun Ford Weekend returns to MIR during the weekend of September 28-29. Memphis International Raceway was the final stop of the Fun Ford Weekend in 2011 and will once again serve as the anchor city event in 2012.
“We are thrilled to have both the Super Chevy Show and Fun Ford Weekend at Memphis next season,” said Pam Kendrick, Vice President and General Manager, Memphis International Raceway.   “After opening in August this year, our racers and fans have been asking for the Super Chevy Show. We received some great feedback from our fans and racers during our inaugural Fun Ford Weekend and they inquired about the next Ford show. We expect to have great fan and racer turnout at both events next year. Memphis International Raceway is back and plans are underway to make both of these shows successful.”
Super Chevy Show and Fun Ford Weekend are two confirmed events on the Memphis International Raceway schedule for next season. Memphis International Raceway officials are securing and confirming other events for 2012 and will announce a full schedule in the coming weeks.
