Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series Racing Returns to NASCAR in Multi-year Agreement
Advance Auto Parts is supporting local racing communities through NASCAR partnership
NASCAR Weekly Series events are returning to several tracks across North America. Amid their return, NASCAR and Advance Auto Parts have signed a multi-year official partnership. The partnership names Advance Auto Parts, a leading automotive aftermarket parts provider, as the series entitlement sponsor. As part of the agreement, Advance Auto Parts also becomes the ‘Official Auto Parts Retailer of NASCAR.’
“It’s great to have Advance join us in welcoming the return of NASCAR-sanctioned grassroots racing,” said Ben Kennedy, vice president, racing development, NASCAR. “Advance’s commitment to our Weekly Series will develop some of the brightest NASCAR talent across North America. Advance has a long history in racing, and we’re thrilled to see its expanded presence from the grassroots all the way through our national series.”
The NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series is one of the oldest series in NASCAR, crowning champions at NASCAR-sanctioned Home Tracks. After a pause in mid-March due to COVID-19, the series is now returning with events at select tracks beginning June 6.
Across North America
The series is run at nearly 60 NASCAR-sanctioned Home Tracks throughout the United States and Canada. NASCAR Home Tracks are a group of local short tracks sanctioned by NASCAR.
“Drivers and race fans in North America have not been able to attend their local tracks due to COVID-19. We are excited to be partnering with NASCAR and the NASCAR Weekly Series to support tracks, drivers and fans as they resume live racing this year,” said Jason McDonell, Advance’s chief marketing officer. “We are committed to helping our customers advance in our stores, online and with this multiyear partnership with NASCAR. We are passionate about advancing local communities where we serve, and through this sponsorship, we’ll be able to help grow racing at the grassroots level while supporting the next generation of champions.”
