Longtime track operator Alan Miller named new General Manager of SWIR

Wednesday, 20 August 2014

IRG Sports + Entertainment™ (IRG), the parent company of Southwestern International Raceway (SWIR), announced today that Alan Miller has been appointed as the new General Manager of SWIR in Tucson, Arizona. 

IRG acquired SWIR in August 2013, and Alan Miller was named Interim General Manager in October 2013. His role later transitioned him into a drag racing consultant at SWIR and other IRG owned properties. Effective immediately, Miller will return to SWIR and take over as the General Manager.

Miller is an experienced drag strip operator with more than 30 years in the industry. He was formerly a track General Manager working for NHRA at their company owned tracks, has worked with Pullin Television/SPEED as Track Technical Consultant for "Pinks All Out", and has worked as a track consultant for many drag strips across the country, including Famosa Dragway in Bakersfield, California and Palm Beach International Raceway (PBIR).

"We're excited to have Alan back at SWIR. He has proven to be a leader and brings 30 years of experience to the drag racing industry," stated Jason Rittenberry, President and CEO of IRG Sports + Entertainment. "Alan has the ability to relate to our racers and was key in helping us rebuild SWIR and Palm Beach International Raceway."

"I'm excited about the opportunity to make SWIR my new permanent home," said Alan Miller. "I've learned a lot from working with the IRG companies over the last year, and I'm ready for this opportunity. Drag racing has been my life, and I look forward to bringing SWIR to the next level."

As the first stop on the Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series™ (NJDRS) North American Tour, the Southwestern Nationals will return to SWIR in March 2015. The IHRA recently announced that NJDRS will feature a number of additional enhancements for next season. Alan will be instrumental in scheduling the 2015 events, communicating with the local racers, and he will attend the upcoming IHRA Team Finals for Division 7 at Caprock Motorplex in a few week
