Bob Fairey Joins MIR Team

Monday, June 4, 2018
MILLINGTON, Tenn. June 4, 2018 - Bob Fairey has joined Memphis International Raceway (MIR) bringing 16 years of experience to our operations team. His expertise in operations and logistics will allow MIR to continue to deliver the great racing that fans expect as we grow the number of events we hold each year, while also adding new types of exciting racing to our facility. 

Fairey started his track operations career at San Antonio Raceway (SAR) in 2002 after being a regular drag racer at that facility. He handled everything from tech to staging lanes as he helped SAR deliver great drag racing to racers and fans. After a brief stint as a contractor in the Middle East, Fairey returned to SAR to become their track manager. In 2012, Fairey transitioned from being the track manager at San Antonio Raceway, to owning and operating Edinburg Raceway in Edinburg, Texas.

Since 2016 Fairey has had various roles in racing operations while working for the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA), handling everything from event logistics and management, to track preparations. Fairey’s expertise in track preparation allowed him to work with Mass Traction, dialing in the track preparations for the development of the Dodge Demon.

Before joining the team at MIR, Fairey took his skillset to Palm Beach International Raceway to help them improve their track preparation procedures, along with helping handle equipment maintenance and racetrack operations.

When asked about Fairey joining the team at MIR, President Pam Kendrick said, “We look forward to what Fairey brings to the table overseeing our operations department as Director of Operations and working with Terry Forsythe, MIR’s track manager.  Forsythe will continue the day to day preparation of the track and facility.  Fairey’s skillset will be used on event development and execution. This is a great opportunity for MIR and we look forward to the addition of Fairey to our team.”
