Memphis International Raceway Begins Summer Racing Hours in June

Millington, T.N. (May 30, 2012) Racing fun at Memphis International Raceway will begin and end a little later during the months of June, July and August on their weekly Thursday TNT and Wednesday night Bike / Slick Tire test sessions. MIR knows that when Memphis temperatures rise, many racers and spectators come out for the excitement a little later in the evening to beat the heat. At Memphis International Raceway, we LOVE our race fans and don’t want them to miss one minute of the action! Therefore, racing will run from 7:00 PM – 11:00 PM on these nights during June, July and August to be more accommodating to our race fans.
