IHRA’s Pro-Am Racers Head to MIR

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

The IHRA's Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am Tour Presented By AMSOIL weekend is just a few days away at Memphis International Raceway (MIR).

Two complete Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am Tour Presented By AMSOIL events will be contested April 30-May 3 at the IHRA Division 4 track. Along with Pro-Am will be a Summit Bracket Racing Series presented by COMP Cams race that will be run Saturday evening.



“This could be some of the most intense bracket racing we’ll see all year,” said MIR VP and GM Pam Kendrick. “This is a Wildcard Race, so points earned here will go back to whichever division drivers come from. With our central location, we’re expecting to see some of the best racers from not just our area but the Midwest, East and Deep South as well.

“The weather looks like it’s going to be fabulous too, so we’re anticipating a great weekend.”

MIR will open on Thursday Test N Tune at 3 p.m. Test 'n' Tune will run from 6-11 p.m. It will be $20 to race, $10 for crew and spectators and children 12 and under are free.

On Friday, gates will be open from 8 a.m.-10 p.m. for parking. Tech will be open from 3-9 p.m. Another Test N Tune that is open to only Pro-Am racers will be held from 5-10 p.m. ($40 entry fee).

On Saturday, gates will open at 7:30 a.m. and tech will be open from 8 a.m. until after the second time trial/qualifying session is completed. Eliminations will immediately follow the second time trial session.

Gates will open on Sunday morning at 8 a.m. God Speed chapel service will be offered at 8:30 a.m. One time trial session will be held, beginning at 9 a.m. -- time and weather permitting - followed by the second Summit Pro-Am Tour race of the weekend.
