The success of FAST™ in the racing industry is a natural fit to power the Rockin' Radial Series here at Memphis International Raceway. 

"FAST™ is excited to be involved with the Memphis Rockin' Radial Series. We pride ourselves on being the leading name in fuel air spark technology, and the Memphis Rockin' Radial Series is the perfect place to showcase our parts,"  said Billy Carroll, Contingency Coordinator.  "It's a privilege for us to support racers and teams just as dedicated to racing as we are. Their passion for the sport truly reflects the mindset of all FAST™ employees."

A solid program starts with a sold surface insuring results that will be second to none, MIR has partnered with VIP Racing to be the official traction compound of the Rockin' Radial Series presented by FAST™.  VP Racing is the standard which every traction compound maker strives to equal when it comes to small tire / radial tire racing.  Jason Ruckert, a familiar face in the radial world always  keeps up on the leading edge of "stupid fast" ET's with these great traction compound products.  

Class sponsors joining the event are Rick's Powder Coating as the class sponsor for 7.0 Index.
