Man Cup Gathers Drag Bike Racing's Best

Monday, June 15, 2015
Many of the top motorcycle drag racers in the nation will descend on Memphis International Raceway (MIR) for the Manufacturers’ Cup on June 19-21.

The Man Cup offers the widest variety of drag bikes around with Pingel Top Fuel Harleys that reach top speeds of close to 250 mph and more than a dozen other classes racing to entertain nearly every bike fan out there.

“If you love motorcycles, then this is the place for you this weekend,” said MIR VP and GM Pam Kendrick. “We’ll have hundreds of bikes of all kinds in the pits all battling for their share of the Man Cup glory.”

Other classes racing include Falicon Pro Mod,  Pro Fuel, Pro Comp, Cooper Performance Pro Open, APE Pro Street, Shinko/WPS Real Street, MTC Engineering Super Comp, Street Fighter, Star Racing Top Gas, Super Eliminator, World Wide Bearing Crazy 8s, D&G Chassis V-Twin and Grothus Dragbike Ultra 4.60. There will also be time set aside on Friday and Saturday for JRI Shocks Grudge racing as well.

“It’s not often we get the opportunity to put on events exclusively for racers and fans of motorcycle racing,” Kendrick said. “The Man Cup event gives us that opportunity.”

The weekend gets under way on Friday. There will be a Test N Tune session for Man Cup riders from 1-7 p.m. That will be followed by a grudge racing session from 7-10 p.m.

Saturday the gates open at 7 a.m. with time trials starting at 9 a.m. with qualifying and grudge racing going on until after 10 p.m. Sunday the gates open at 7 a.m. with a chapel service at 7:45 a.m. Racing gets under way at 8:30 a.m. with a final round of time trials before opening ceremonies and eliminations begin at 11 a.m.

A full weekend pass is $40. For individual day tickets, Friday admission is $20, Saturday is $25 and Sunday is $15. Children 12 and under are free.
