Grab a win and win a Turkey!

The winner of the race receives a Burgers’ Smokehouse turkey, delivered to the doorstep in time to enjoy it with the family for Thanksgiving dinner.

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.

Nom, Nom, Nom thanks to Burgers’ Smokehouse!

2008 saw a move to Tri-Park Speedway where the race stayed for the next six years. Ray Sand, Jr. won that first Tri-Park show then did it again the next year to become the first back-to-back winner.

In 2010-11 Dave Biro III duplicated Sand, Jr.’s feat before Rob Warren took home the Burgers’ Smokehouse Turkey in 2012 and donated it to injured supermodified racer Jeff Russell.

Joey Callahan not only claimed his first Turkey Shoot in 2013 at Tri-Park, but  also won his first ever SUPRS feature. Carl Becker was the winner in 2014 and both drivers capitalized on their starting position which is set by the six lap Turkey Trot qualifying race for the Elite 8 of Time Trials.

Last year the race moved back to Memphis and used the SUPRS non-wing rFactor mod. After the start was called back, the 2015 race went green to checkered with great battles throughout. Ray Sand, Jr. won his third Burgers’ Smokehouse turkey and donated to fellow SUPRS racer Myles Maxon who had recently lost his grandmother.

Practice for the SUPRS 12th Annual Turkey Shoot at Memphis Motorsports Park begins at 8:00pm. The Fast 4 qualifiers will take the first racing green flag of the night at 9:00pm with the six lap Turkey Trot to set the first two rows of the 40 lap main event.

You could win a Burgers’ Smokehouse Thanksgiving Turkey!

The succulent slow smoked turkey has a value of over $60 and comes from a family company that was started in 1952 by E.M. Burger in Moniteau County Missouri.

Bugers’ Smokehouse can trace it’s roots all the way back to the 1920s when E.M. Burger’s parents startedBurgers' Smokehouse logo curing hams on their local farm. Now known as one of the largest companies of its kind, the time-honored traditions of hard work and special personal touch have never been lost, to the point that, according to the Burgers’ website, each ham still starts the curing process by being hand-rubbed with a seasoning blend dating back to one developed by the family over 100 years ago.

The 11th Annual Turkey Shoot is the second race of the 2015-16 Gold Crest Wing Championship Season to use the SUPRS NW V1 non-wing supermodified for rFactor. Not only is that a bit of a change from prior Turkey Shoot’s but after many years of the race being held at Tri-Park Speedway, this year’s race will be held at Memphis Motorsports Park for the first time since 2007.

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. The last time the race was held at Memphis in 2007, Florida’s Kris Heveron was the winner over Dave Soja, Myles Maxon and a bevy of other talented sim racers in the 17 car field.
