Track Improvements Underway at Memphis International Raceway

Monday, April 4, 2011

MILLINGTON, TN – April 4, 2011 – Memphis International Raceway (MIR) and Penhall Company have been working diligently over the last week scraping and grinding the quarter-mile drag strip.  Providing a solid and safe racing surface is the top priority for the new track owners in order to open the Tennessee facility later this month.

“The weather posed a few problems today for us, but we were able to get things moving on the drag strip,” said Pam Kendrick, Vice President and General Manager, Memphis International Raceway.  “We made a lot of progress and we have a full schedule and list of items that we are working on before the grand opening next month.”

The American Drag Racing League (ADRL) will serve as the grand opening event at Memphis International Raceway on May 20-21.

Memphis International Raceway executives are seeking sponsorship partners for the facility, in addition to developing a schedule for 2011.  For the latest information on Memphis International Raceway, visit www.racemir.com
