Rochester Hills, MI – As the outdoors racing season approaches the Labor Day Holiday Weekend, Motor City Racing Promotions, the sanctioning body for the Midwest Indoor Racing Series has been hard at work preparing for the fourth winter racing season of competition for the fastest growing Indoor racing series in the country. As preparations continue for the upcoming winter racing season, one event on the schedule has become the traditional door opener for the Rochester Hills, Michigan based series and those dates are official.

The 3rd Annual Thanksgiving Classic Weekend is set for Friday-Saturday, November 27-28th. The location of the event is in the process of being finalized and will be announced as soon as possible. In addition to the third consecutive running of the Thanksgiving Classic Weekend, plans also call for two more events to be announced. Several other announcements are also forthcoming regarding the remainder of the 2015/2016 winter racing series schedule and much more within the Midwest Indoor Racing Series.

The opening race weekend will feature two nights of racing starting on Friday, November 27th leading into the headlining night of action on Saturday, November 28th. The full array of divisions scheduled to compete throughout the fourth season of competition will be on hand including 600cc Mini Sprints, Arena/Mini Cups, Go-Karts, Quarter Midgets, Lawn Mowers and possibly one or more divisions. All specific divisions for both days are also in the process of being finalized and will be jointly announced along with the location of the winter racing series season opener.

The Midwest Indoor Racing Series (MIRS) is owned and operated by Motor City Racing Promotions LLC (MCRP) based out of Rochester Hills, Michigan and features some of the most exciting racing in the Midwestern United States. MIRS is a revolutionary racing series designed to provide “circle track” auto racing, inside arenas and expo centers across the Midwestern United States.

The Inaugural 2012/2013 Winter Racing Season featured five (5) MIRS sanctioned indoor races in arenas throughout the series home state of Michigan. The first ever MIRS sanctioned event was held at Perani Arena & Event Center (Now Dort Federal Credit Union Event Center) in Flint, Michigan on Saturday November 3, 2012. Events were also held at the Birch Run Expo Center in Birch Run, Michigan as well as Kellogg Arena in Battle Creek, Michigan and The DeltaPlex Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Five (5) more races were conducted during the series’ second year of indoors competition in the 2013/2014 winter racing season with those race weekends held at the same four venues as the inaugural season of racing. During the 2014/2015 winter season, a four (4) race schedule was conducted with the final two events in Battle Creek, Michigan and Flint, Michigan producing the two biggest crowds in the series’ three-year history as well as record breaking car counts in all divisions.

A MIRS event is a family fun night at the races. Racers of all ages compete in all types of cars as Boys and Girls from as young a four-years-old and above race wheel to wheel in the Quarter Midget Division while the Go-Karts competitors young and old alike compete against one another. In addition, the teenagers and adults will also battle on the tight indoor ovals in the 600cc Non-Winged and Winged Mini Sprints, Arena/Mini Cup Cars, Legends/Dwarf Cars and even Lawn Mowers. It’s great entertainment for both the casual motorsports fan and the short track diehards to get you through those cold winter months.
