Girl Scouts Take Over MIR

Monday, November 16, 2015

Memphis International Raceway (MIR) is proud to sponsor the upcoming "Start Your Engines Powder Puff Derby".  This inaugural event will be held at MIR on Saturday, November 21, 2015.  Girls from the entire council are invited to bring their derby cars out for one last run on the track to see who is the best-of-the-best for 2015.  This event is also open to non-members of the Girl Scouts.   


Event registration begins at 10 a.m. with racing at 12:30 p.m. The day is about increasing awareness that these young ladies can become a race car driver too.  The mission of the Girl Scouts is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

"This is an event I reached out to the Girl Scouts about hosting," Kendrick continued. "It's a natural fit to have this event hosted at MIR, and build awareness of opportunities. We thank Brianna Moore and Leigh Hubbard for taking part in this great event as well. They live the racing dream and get to share their experiences with these young ladies."
