The Return of NASCAR to Memphis Only A Month Away

Wednesday, May 3, 2017
MILLINGTON, TENN. (May 3, 2017) - It's only 30 days until NASCAR is racing in Memphis for the first time in eight years on Saturday, June 3.

Memphis International Raceway will host the exciting NASCAR K&N Pro Series for the Memphis 125. The race, held at the 0.75-mile short track in Millington, Tenn., will be broadcast nationally on a tape-delayed basis on the NBC Sports Network (NBCSN).

Current K&N Pro Series drivers include multi-generation drivers Harrison Burton and Todd Gilliland along with Jay Beasley and Collin Cabre from NASCAR's Drive for Diversity program. Watch these young stars as they look to follow the path of recent K&N Pro Series graduates Joey Logano, Kyle Larson, Chase Elliott and Daniel Suarez into the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series.

An open-test session is scheduled from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., CDT, Friday, June 2 with admission free to all Saturday ticket holders. The Memphis 125, Saturday, June 3 action includes practice, qualifying and a driver autograph session before drivers take the green flag at 5 p.m.

Saturday tickets start at just $20 for adults. For just $49, a limited number of fans can purchase a VIP experience that includes lunch with the drivers.

With a storied history that dates back to September 1998 when MIR hosted its first-ever NASCAR event. The track was an annual stop for both the Camping World Truck Series and the Xfinity Series. Brad Keselowski, driving a Chevrolet for Dale Earnhardt Jr., outdueled Kyle Busch in a battle of future Monster Energy Cup champions at the last Memphis Xfinity Series race on Oct. 24, 2009.

Now, more history will be made once again with NASCAR fans attending the Memphis 125 being introduced to the next generation of stars.

Memphis International Raceway is the Mid-South's premier racing destination for racers and spectators alike. The facility includes a historic drag strip and a road course besides the NASCAR 0.75-mile tri-oval. In the past month alone, MIR has hosted such major events as the original Super Chevy Show and the season-opening race for Red Bull Global Rallycross, which was broadcast on NBC.
