LEE FIELDS MEMORIAL LABOR DAY WEEKEND AT MOBILE INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY
Mobile International Speedway presents the season’s most ambitious night of racing Saturday, August 31. More race cars than at any other event this season will compete in the Lee Fields Memorial which features racing in seven divisions. The annual Labor Day weekend event is held as a tribute to the late Lee Fields, owner/operator of MIS through 1999 and a nationally-known professional wrestler and promoter. His widow, Ida, currently owns the facility.
The Lee Fields Memorial weekend is presented by the Mobile Sports Authority and the Mobile Bay Convention & Visitors Bureau. All out-of-town race teams are encouraged to spend the entire weekend in the Mobile area. Use this link for Mobile area lodging and dining info:
