Memphis International Raceway (MIR), an IRG Sports + Entertainment company, today announced the addition of Dianna Dawson as the new Director of Corporate Partnerships.

Dianna joins MIR as Director of Corporate Partnerships from Morris Marketing Group in Memphis, Tennessee. She held the position VP of Sales and Development and was responsible for securing sponsorships, in-kind donations, building new relationships while maintaining and growing current relationships.
