It known as the birthplace of Rock ‘N Roll, land of The King and home to some of the best barbecue in the land and now Memphis is home to the International Hot Rod Association’s biggest weekend – the Summit Racing Equipment World Finals the weekend of October 11-12.
After an extremely successful debut at the track in 2012 the IHRA will be returning to the world class facility in Millington, Tennessee in 2013 with a combination event featuring the best sportsman and professional racers in the world.

“Memphis International Raceway is thrilled to host the IHRA World Finals and Team Finals again in 2013.
