ADRL Adds Memphis Strip To Schedule

MILLINGTON, Tenn. — The American Drag Racing League will be the first professional drag racing series to return to Memphis Int’l Raceway in 2011.

ADRL and Memphis Int’l Raceway officials announced Thursday that the track will open its 2011 season with an ADRL event May 20-21. Formerly Memphis Motorsports Park, Memphis Int’l Raceway was recently purchased by Moroso Investment Partners, the ownership group of Palm Beach Int’l Raceway, in Jupiter, Fla.

The ADRL event will serve as MIR’s first official event under the new ownership group.

“We are excited to add Memphis Int’l Raceway to our 2011 schedule,” said Jeff Fortune, ADRL executive vice president. “This will be one more great event to what we firmly believe is the best schedule the ADRL has ever had in the series’ history. We’ve had some very exciting events there and I think it is terrific that we will able to return to an incredible place like Memphis Int’l Raceway. We are thrilled to be the first event at MIR, which will add even more excitement to what will already be an fantastic weekend.”

The ADRL last raced in Memphis in 2009. With the addition of Memphis Int’l Raceway, the ADRL schedule features 10 events this season.
