MILLINGTON, Tenn. - Memphis International Raceway is pleased to announce a partnership extension with Performance Torque Converters (PTC) and Rick's Powder Coating to sponsor and expand the 2018 year-end points program to include the 6.0 and 7.0 classes.

As with PTC 6.0 the seven-race series will get underway on February 25 with the first race of the season and will conclude at the final race in the Rockin' Radial Series presented by FAST on October 26-28, 2018.

The points program will be awarded to the top-five finishers at the annual banquet with the winner receiving a track champion trophy, a jacket, a minimum of $500 in prize money and a PTC Converter product certificate.
