#2: Amazing Sponsors

What we do each week would not be possible without the support of our amazing sponsors. Each week you’ll notice displays, signage, and dignitaries at the track spreading the word about their products. We love celebrating them and in 2017, thanks to Phil-Ko Plastics & Glass along with Finish Line Vinyl Design, we increased our love with unique, custom designed trophies featuring all of our race sponsors.

Whether it’s the middle of the summer or the middle of the off season, whenever you are looking for a product or service that one of our sponsors delivers, please make sure to check them out and let them know you are a race fan!

#1: Guest drivers including Mark Martin

As exciting as the racing on the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour is each and every race, it is always a special treat for drivers and fans alike when a guest driver joins us! Last year we saw the return of NASCAR Pinty’s Series regular Jason Hathaway and former NASCAR Truck Series Champion Matt Crafton – both with one goal of topping our elite drivers and taking home their first win on our series. (Mission Status: FAILED)

We also had the privilege of hosting NASCAR Hall of Famer Mark Martin for the IWK 250 at Riverside International Speedway! Unfortunately, he had a rough start to the day after hitting the wall hard during afternoon practice doing significant damage to the car. The crew battled and were able to get the Cat Car for Kids into the starting grid but their issues continued into the evening. Martin pitted on Lap 57 but was unable to return to the race due to extensive mechanical issues.

We have already heard that JR Fitzpatrick will be making the trip east a couple of times this season, but who else will try to take home one of our trophies this season? Only time will tell, but throw us your best guess/wish below!!

Check back next week for more great highlights!
