MILLINGTON, Tenn. - Memphis International Raceway (MIR) is proud to announce a newly-formed partnership with Bumpus Harley-Davidson, Whitten Road location, beginning in 2018. This partnership is a natural fit as Bumpus' T-Daddy Speed Shop builds the toughest, longest-lasting, motors for bikes.
In November 2017, Bumpus Harley-Davidson revealed a 2018 T-Daddy Speed Shop build, pictured below with owner, Tim Bumpus. Over 100 bikes from the Mid-South recently were displayed at the The Bumpus Harley-Davidson open customer event with most of those bikes representing the Harley-Davidson brand.
The partnership includes naming rights to the bike nights that return to the MIR schedule in 2018. Bumpus Bike Night presented by T-Daddy Speed Shop events will take place on the dates listed below and run 7-11 p.m. on Friday evenings.
Bumpus Bike Nights presented by T-Daddy Speedy Shop Schedule:
Discounted tickets to the Bumpus Bike Nights will be offered exclusively through T-Daddy Speed Shop at Bumpus Harley-Davidson Memphis. Regular price tickets will be available at the gate.
"The entire team at Bumpus Harley Davidson, Memphis is excited and especially proud to continue to develop our relationship with the great folks at MIR. We really got off to a great start with the first track day we hosted in November," Bumpus Harley-Davidson Owner Tim Bumpus said. "And with the number of people that showed up and the high level of interest in power and performance bikes in Memphis, the talented professionals at T-Daddy's Speed Shop-Bumpus H-D Memphis will not only help build the engine of your dreams, but what's equally important is that with our sponsorship at MIR we're able to create the premier power and performance experience in the region for any Harley Davidson Rider or Enthusiast."
Memphis International Raceway will also be home to the Bumpus Harley-Davidson Top 25 Club Whitten Road, the hottest ticket in motorsports for event viewing and entertainment.

Bumpus will also host exclusive customer events to run your bike on the strip.
Bumpus will have a very high visibility at the track as well with their vendor midway. The midway will feature the Bumpus display at major events as well as Bike Night and special events along the way.
"Bumpus Harley-Davidson is a great fit for us here at the track. We feel our customer is one in the same; racers ride Harley-Davidson motorcycles," MIR President and General Manager Pam Kendrick said. "The opportunity to cross promote and brand one another's products is a win-win for both parties as we can build brand awareness and event diversity working together."
