Mooresville, NC 4/22/14: This weekend the X-1R Pro Cup Series transitions from having raced at the smallest track on the circuit to the largest as the series heads to the .75 mile Memphis International Raceway (MIR). The Memphis, Tennessee tracks, which use to be staple on the NASCAR Nationwide and Truck Series schedules annually, will be a bit of a question mark for teams as most have never seen the facility much less raced there.
This has many of the series young guns such as Reid Wilson, Gus Dean, and Brady Boswell excited about the potential of breaking through for their first series win at such a premier track. Meanwhile, championship points leader Caleb Holman might have the upper hand with his experience behind the wheel of a NASCAR truck when not racing at the Pro Cup Series level. The series racing at MIR has brought out another veteran the field will have to contend with in the form of two time series champion Benny Gordon. Gordon, who hasn’t raced with the series since 2010, has the second best average finish in series history making him a contender for the trophy just by taking the green flag.
