NASCAR will make its only visit to the Mid-South region Saturday, June 2 at Memphis International Raceway, Millington, Tenn., for the K&N East Series Memphis 150, presented by AutoZone.
For local fans, it’s their opportunity to see the future stars of NASCAR with this year’s race featuring 25 more laps of action-packed, short track racing.
Tickets start at just $20 for an action-packed program that features practice, qualifying, drivers autograph session and the race all on Saturday, June 2. Tickets for children 6-12 are just $5, and those 5-under are admitted free.
After an eight-year absence, NASCAR made a successful return to the Mid-South’s premier racing destination in 2017. Second-generation star Harrison Burton won at Memphis International Raceway’s 3/4-mile oval last June on his way to capturing the K&N East Series championship.
The NASCAR K&N Series has served as a launching pad for many of today’s top Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series stars. All top three finishers in this year’s Daytona 500 — Austin Dillon, Darrell Wallace Jr. and Joey Logano — raced in the K&N Series, as did defending series champion Martin Truex Jr., and other fan favorites like Chase Elliott and Kyle Larson.
The VIP Driver Meet & Greet Experience, a big fan favorite, is available for just $89. It includes a meet and greet, lunch with the drivers and access to VIP tent hospitality throughout the day. It’s a shaded area to take a break and have a cold beverage. Get your tickets now as it sold out in 2017.
NASCAR Pit Passes are also available. They are $40 for NASCAR members and $50 for non-members. The Pit Pass provides access to the infield and garage area with the chance to get up close to the drivers and crew members as they prepare for the race.
Buy now to make sure you are a part of NASCAR’s only visit to the Mid-South region in 2018.
