Racer's Fund

Memphis International Raceway is establishing a racer's fund program for the 2015 Summit Bracket Racing Series presented by COMP Cams season. The new racer's fund will allow MIR to increase the point's fund and enhance our racer's experience at events. The program will consist of a 50/50 raffle, Dial-for-Dollars and golf cart/scooter races and, will be overseen by the racers and the MIR team in a joint effort.

MIR is currently seeking committee members to represent the racers and serve as mentors for new racers. Please submit a short biography with your experience to Paul Cartwright, Director of Operations - pcartwright@racemir.com.

2015 IHRA Team Finals Eligibility

Racers who participate in the 2015 racing season and participate in a minimum of five (5) points meets will be eligible to participate with Team Memphis at the 2015 IHRA Summit Racing Equipment Team Finals.

MIR will develop teams based on standing in points with each racer only eligible for one spot on a team per class. Each racer is also only eligible to participate on one team. Team one will consist of the top-13 points finishers in Box and No Box and the top-four finishers in Junior Dragster. The second team will be formed based on the next eligible racers in points. Each team has two alternate positions also available.    

The entry for Team 1 will be paid by MIR. The entry for Team 2 will be paid by the racers. Both teams will park together and participate in all hospitality offered for the weekend.
