IHRA Brings Nitro Jam and World Finals to Memphis International Raceway in 2013 Season

 

Millington, TN (October 22, 2012) Feld Motor Sports is pleased to announce an exciting 2013 Nitro Jam schedule that includes two new markets and a return to some of the top motorsports facilities in North America.

Highlighting the 2013 schedule is a return to the Sunshine State with a trip to Bradenton Motorsports Park in the spring and the addition of Memphis International Raceway in Millington, TN on October 11-12, 2013.

“Over the past three years we have seen Nitro Jam grow from a series struggling to find an identity to one of the most exciting motorsports shows around and that is something we want to continue and grow on moving forward,” said IHRA President Aaron Polburn. “We have a very strong schedule for 2013 that includes regular stops at popular locations and two new markets in Florida and Tennessee that we are excited to add to the schedule.

“They are wonderful additions to our core Nitro Jam tracks. Both are very attractive venues with an excellent staff and savvy promoters. Fans in both markets haven’t had a good dose of nitro and fire for several years and we intend to cure that,” said Polburn.

“We are thrilled to add Nitro Jam and the World Finals to our 2013 schedule,” said Pam Kendrick, Vice President and General Manager of Memphis International Raceway. “These are incredible events and sure to please racers and spectators alike,” said Kendrick.

The Nitro Jam lineup will continue to feature a unique assortment of nitro-powered machines in addition to jets, wheel standers and many more thrilling motorsports acts unique to each market. Nitro Jam will also retain its “race only” format with two rounds of racing and a different winner crowned each night.

“This year is all about taking that ‘wow’ factor to the next level,” Polburn said. “There is no denying that fans go nuts for nitro and fire and we intend to give them more of that than ever before. Each market will have its own unique set of things that make you go ‘wow’ and at the end of the night we want our fans to go home saying ‘I can’t believe I just saw that’ and hopefully turn them into drag racing fans for life.”

The 2013 Nitro Jam series will wrap-up at two of the most spectacular facilities on the Nitro Jam tour at U.S. 131 Motorsports Park and, for the first time ever, Memphis International Raceway. U.S. 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, Mich. will welcome the series the weekend of August 9-10 and Memphis International Raceway will host the 2013 IHRA World Finals for professional and sportsman competitors the weekend of October 11-12.
