Default Breaking News.......................................

Memphis Motorsport Park is reopening. It is now an IHRA sactioned track. I read on Yellowbullet about this last week. I didnt really believe it but below is the website that clears it up. Also on YB it wa ssaid that the new owners are trying to have it open by April 2011 for the start of the racing season.

I think this is great news. I cant wait till my car is done and I can make my first run down that track.
