The Mike Parker Memorial Race at Texarkana 67 Speedway this Weekend


This weekend the Texarkana 67 Speedway will be hosting the Mike Parker Memorial Race.
Located at 10641 US-67, Texarkana, AR the live racing action begins Thursday at 6 p.m. and runs through Saturday night.

This race was renamed this year due to the unexpected passing of Mike Parker on Memorial Day. He was a long time supporter of this race and enjoyed competing in it. Also, his car will be driven by good friend and fellow racer Neil Kemp and his son Maguire will carry the flag for the National Anthem.

The show starts Thursday night with practice and time trials. The grandstands will be open to the public and there is no charge for spectating on Thursday. There is a $20 charge to go into the pits.

This show will also feature some old-timers from Stateline Speedway with the return of Jeff Whitehead, Alan Roy, and Kevin McGonigal also known as Cave Monkey.

Friday and Saturday night admission is $20 for grandstand seating and $35 for pit privileges.

Expect a large fireworks show on Friday night in addition to all the racing action!

There is still time to register if you are interested in driving as a competitor.
