Sam's Town 250

"Sam's Town 250" redirects here. For the Truck Series race at Las Vegas in 1998, see Smith's 350.

The Kroger On Track for the Cure 250 presented by the Southern Dodge Dealers was a NASCAR Nationwide Series stock car race that took place at Memphis Motorsports Park in Memphis, Tennessee. The 2007 race had twenty-five caution periods, ten more than any other Nationwide Series race that has been held at MMP. The race has ended under a green-white-checker finish every year since 2004, when the rule was first implemented in the series.

On October 24, 2009, Brad Keselowski won the race at MMP by holding off Kyle Busch to the finish line on the 11th and final annual racing event at MMP, as Dover Motorsports, Inc. announced the closure of Memphis Motorsports Park, a week after that race.
