On August 26 and 27, Memphis, for the first time, will host the 63rd Annual World Series of Drag Racing.
The race will be held at our very own Memphis International Raceway (MIR) in Millington.
I had the honor of speaking to Clay Millican, NHRA racer from Drummonds, TN, who will be competing in the tournament next month.

We expect there to be quite a positive economic impact in result of the tourism draw, with drag racing fans from all over convening in Memphis to watch the event.
This is just another thing that gives us an advantage over other destinations in the country!
