This race is one of the most anticipated of the season because of the award for being the winner. The driver in victory lane after 40 laps receives a Burgers’ Smokehouse turkey, delivered to the doorstep in time to enjoy it with the family for Thanksgiving dinner. Many times in the races history though, the winner hasn’t had the pleasure of tasting that delicious bird, opting instead to donate it to others in need.

Turkey Shoot & Memphis

For the first three years of the Turkey Shoot it was held at the big 3/4 mile track and varied in length from 63-40 laps. John Davidson won the very first show in 2005 with Chris Meyers picking up one of his first SUPRS feature wins in 2006. Florida’s Kris Heveron was the winner in 2007 in a 17 car field.

After seven years at Tri-Park Speedway, (a fictional asphalt tri-oval in Tennessee), the race returned to its roots on the Mississippi River in 2015. In that race, Ray Sand, Jr. became the All-Time Turkey Shoot winner when he bagged his third Burgers’ Smokehouse turkey and donated it to fellow SUPRS racer Myles Maxon who had recently lost his grandmother. The race itself went green to checkered after an aborted start.

Last year, in another fast show, Joe Achzet ran away from the field to win the race that had just two cautions and took just over 14 minutes to run.

Warren, Becker Take Shot at Second

This year marks the sixth time the supermodifieds have visited Memphis and 2012 winner, Rob Warren, could join Ray Sand, Jr. and Dave Biro III in the multi-time winner club. If he does, it will make four SUPRS feature wins in a row and put him just one win away from having a bounty put on his head for the second time in three years. Carl Becker also has a shot at being a two-time Turkey Shoot winner with his first coming in 2014 at Tri-Park.

Set Your Alarms

Practice for the SUPRS 13th Annual Turkey Shoot at Memphis Motorsports Park begins at 8:15pm on November 14, 2017. The Fast 4 qualifiers take the first racing green flag of the night at 9:00pm in the six lap Turkey Trot. A Heat Race and the thrilling 40 lap feature on the big 3/4 mile Memphis macadam follows.
