UNION, S.C. September 5, 2012:  As the American Drag Racing League returns their tour to Memphis International Raceway for the first time since 2009, teams and fans may begin hungering for blues and barbeque. While Team Aruba is also anxious for the Memphis Drags III, which marks their first visit to MIR, they’re not looking forward to the blues and barbeque as much as they are to sharing their homeland with a new wave of Team Aruba fans.

“Most teams prefer to race at facilities they’ve raced at many times before, where they have a lot of data recorded that they can base their setup on,” told driver Trevor Eman. “We certainly enjoy those perks, too, but we also love racing at facilities we’ve never been to before. This provides us the opportunity to meet and make new fans and tell more people about our wonderful island of Aruba. So, we’re really looking forward to racing in Memphis.”

Memphis fans won’t have any trouble recognizing Team Aruba’s colorful pit area and eye-catching Aruba.com Mustang. Fans can stop by the pit area to learn more about making Aruba their next vacation destination.

Leading up to the Memphis Drags Sept 7-8, Team Aruba will test at Union County Dragway, the track closest to their shop base in Union, SC.

“We don’t often have the same opportunities to test that other teams do, since the car stays in South Carolina and we live in Aruba, but before Memphis we’ll be able to test at our local track. We like to make the most of these test sessions, so hopefully we’ll get a good setup laid down for the weekend. With three races left in the season, we want to make the most of it and finish the year strong.

“We do well when we know we have strong support, so I hope that all of our fans in the Memphis area will come support us at the Memphis Drags. Hopefully we can not only share more of our tiny island paradise with Memphis, but also bring a little of Memphis paradise back to Aruba in the form of a trophy!”
