NEW ENGLAND TOYOTA DEALERS TEAM WITH WISCASSET RACEWAY FOR MARQUEE EVENT
The management team at Wiscasset Raceway announced today that they have inked a deal with the New England Toyota Dealers to be the title sponsor for the track's August 17th Super Late Model showcase. Wiscasset Sales and Promotion Director John Crawford said he and track owner Doug White have reached a deal with Toyota's regional marketing rep Troy McCadden that will make them the title sponsor of the "New England Toyota Tundra 250" for this season's race and years to come.
"This is a great opportunity for Toyota and for Wiscasset Raceway" said Crawford. "This is something we're going develope over time and continue to grow as a national event. This is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, purse for a Prostock / Super Late Model race on the east coast and this partnership with Toyota will help give it the push we're looking for". The 250 lap race which will highlight Wiscasset's 2008 schedule is sanctioned by the Pro All Stars Series and will pay $30,000 to win plus lap money to the winner. Over 30 drivers have already preregistered for the race at Maine's Center of Speed including PASS stars Johnny Clark, Ben Rowe, Mike Rowe, and Derek Ramstrom; five-time Wiscasset Prostock champ Scott Chubbuck; 2007 Coastal 200 winner DJ Shaw; 2006 Oxford 250 winner and runner-up Jeremy and Bill Whorff; 2003 Big Dawg 400 winner Sam Sessions; and Maine racing legend Stan Messerve. By virtue of his win in the March 15th PASS South race at Hickory North Carolina, Boothbay native Cory Williams has secured the first guaranteed starting spot in the New England Toyota Tundra 250. Reserve seats are currently on sale by calling the Wiscasset Raceway office at (207) 632-7322 or (207) 314-1651. Further information is available on the track's website at www.wiscassetraceway.info.
