Tire Kingdom sponsors Feb. 27 ARCA event
Palm Beach International Raceway (PBIR) is excited to announce Tire Kingdom as the title sponsor for the February 27 Tire Kingdom 150 ARCA Racing Series race presented by RE/MAX and Menards. As the official tire and automotive service provider for PBIR, Tire Kingdom has full naming rights for this race.
“We’re really excited to partner with Tire Kingdom to bring the first organized stock car race to Palm Beach County, Florida,” said Jason Rittenberry, President and CEO of Palm Beach International Raceway. “The addition of this race to our calendar is solidifying PBIR’s ranking in the motorsports track arena. We look forward to expanding our outreach and drawing national and international events to Palm Beach County. This increased visibility is a tremendous benefit to our sponsors.”
The February 27, 2010 ARCA race date marks the sanction’s inaugural appearance to PBIR and the 12th time that the nationally touring stock car series has contested a road course race. Most recently, ARCA raced on New Jersey Motorsports Park’s 2.3-mile Thunderbolt Course in 2008 and 2009, with a third ARCA race planned at NJMP in 2010. ARCA made its road course racing debut in 1958 at the now defunct Meadowdale Raceway in Carpentersville, Illinois.
“PBIR is an exceptional facility that draws national visibility. The ability to bring the ARCA Racing Series to Palm Beach County is a tremendous asset to local and regional businesses,” said Orland Wolford, President and CEO of TBC Retail Group. “We are excited to be a part of this sponsorship as it is a win-win opportunity for Tire Kingdom.”
