Grogan's Towne Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Sponsoring and Offering Promotion for ARCA Truck Series Race May 19
For Immediate Release:
Monday, May 7, 2012
(TOLEDO, Ohio) - After launching a new promotional partnership last spring, the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA), Toledo Speedway, and Grogan's Towne Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram of Toledo have enhanced that relationship for 2012 - ARCA's 60th Anniversary Season.
The connection between the three key Toledo groups will be evident on Saturday, May 19, as Grogan's Towne will sponsor that afternoon's ARCA Truck Series race at Toledo Speedway, the Grogan's Towne 50. The race will lead one of the year's top race weekends at the half-mile oval, as the stars of the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards will shine in the next day's Menards 200 presented by Federated Car Care.
The Grogan's Towne 50 will open the ARCA Truck Series' 14th season, also marking the beginning of ARCA Fan Fest 2012, the interactive fan event surrounding the ARCA Racing Series event weekend at Toledo Speedway.
"ARCA is well known throughout the country but lucky for us, it's based right in our neighborhood," said Denny Amrhein, general manager and partner at Grogan's Towne. "We are proud to support our local community and especially our partnership with the leading racing organization."
The race sponsorship is beneficial not only for the track, but for area fans as well. Starting Thursday, May 10, race fans and customers who visit Grogan's Towne for oil change service any day through May 19 will receive two tickets to the Grogan's Towne 50 after the completion of their service.
Additionally, Grogan's Towne has renewed its position as an Official Sponsor of the ARCA Safety Initiative, and has supplied a Dodge Ram truck to be used as the chase vehicle for the 2012 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards season. The vehicle is used as the first-response vehicle for all ARCA Racing Series events, carrying ARCA Safety Initiative officials to the scene of on-track incidents to provide observations and evaluation of the track conditions and driver status.
Founded by John and Mildred Marcum in 1953 in Toledo, Ohio, the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) is recognized among the leading sanctioning bodies in the country. Closing in on completing its sixth decade after hundreds of thousands of miles of racing, ARCA administers over 100 race events each season in three professional touring series and local weekly events.
