Fords Rocked at Memphis International Raceway

Memphis International Raceway pulled out all the stops for Ford fans of the Mid-South, June 7 – 8, 2013, with a live band straight from Beale Street in the Midway and racing at the Rusty Wallace Karting Experience while racers lined up in the staging lanes for the Friday Night Test & Tune portion of Fun Ford Weekend including lighting up the night with sibling rivalry in the Larson Jet Cars. Saturday, local Ford enthusiasts had the option to watch or participate in another day of Ford excitement like autocross racing on the newly resurfaced road course, drag racing, the car show as well as another day of karting and jet cars exhibitions, all while NASCAR fans looking to fulfill their oval-driven dreams, could test skills on the Nationwide Series track with the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience.

Drag racers competed in Fast Ford, Quick Ford, DOT Street Ford classes as well as the VMP Superchargers True Street Challenge and the MustangGuys.com Fastest 5.0 Shootout, while the index racers and trucks battled it out between Fast Ford and Quick Ford rounds. The local Mustang Club of America members raced on the strip and autocross road course after car show judging as other car show participants checked out the new Fords on display from Homer Skelton Ford and the Patriot Chopper  courtesy of the Tennessee  Army National Guard.
