TOLEDO, Ohio – Officials from Kimberly-Clark Professional, Track Enterprises and the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) announced today that SCOTT® Brand products will serve as title sponsor of the SCOTT® Get Geared Up 200, the 2014 ARCA Racing Series event presented by Menards at Lucas Oil Raceway in Brownsburg, Ind. on July 25, 2014.
Kimberly-Clark Professional and the SCOTT® brand have partnered with ARCA series sponsor Menards to participate in the 2014 ARCA Racing series. SCOTT® Brand is an official sponsor of the ARCA series, the ARCA Rookie Challenge and now the SCOTT® Get Geared Up 200.
The SCOTT® Get Geared Up 200 will focus on promoting the SCOTT® ‘Get Geared Up’ sweepstakes, enlisting contractors in the Midwest and across the county to grow their business by giving them the opportunity to enter to win a 2015 Ford Transit Commercial Van along with a VIP trip to the NASCAR race in Charlotte on October 11th. Contractors can enter the sweepstakes at: SCOTTProProjects.com.
“We are looking forward to working in partnership with Menards to sponsor the ARCA race at Lucas Oil Raceway,” said Brittany Harvey, Kimberly-Clark Professional’s Customer Marketing Manager. “This exciting opportunity gives us a great venue to promote our SCOTT® ‘Get Geared Up’ campaign with the objective of providing contractors the tools they need to get the job done right.”
Series officials are excited about the return of the ARCA Racing Series to the track. The ARCA Racing Series last ran at Lucas Oil Raceway in 2012, with Frank Kimmel taking the checkered flag. The 2014 race will be the 10th ARCA Racing Series race at the track since 1971. Lucas Oil Raceway, located about seven miles from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, is a .686-mile oval.
“We at Track Enterprises are pleased to bring ARCA back to Lucas Oil Raceway,” said track promoter Bob Sargent. “It’s exciting for both the fans and drivers. Working with USAC to bring two days of both ARCA stock cars and open wheel racing to Indianapolis should be great for everyone involved.”
“The track has a history of producing exhilarant racing and the ARCA Racing Series event, under the lights, will surely add to that tradition,” said ARCA President Ron Drager. “Everyone associated with our series really looks forward to returning to Lucas Oil Raceway.”
The return to the Indianapolis area by the series is also important for the series presenting sponsor, Menards. Indianapolis is the fifth-largest market for Menards, which has 287 stores in 14 Midwestern states.
“The combined effort by ARCA, the track and Menards, to welcome SCOTT® Brand products back as a vendor partner allows this to all come together for an epic weekend of racing,” said Mark Gundrum, Vice President of ARCA Business Development and Corporate Partnerships.
The Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) is among the leading auto racing sanctioning bodies in the country. Founded in 1953 by John and Mildred Marcum, the organization administers more than 100 events each year in multiple racing series, including the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards, the ARCA/CRA Super Series, the ARCA Truck Series and the ARCA Midwest Tour, plus weekly racing at Toledo and Flat Rock Speedways.
