Story By: STEVEN OVENS / WOODHULL RACEWAY – WOODHULL, NY – With a steep tradition of motorsports involvement from Daytona to the local short tracks across the country, NAPA Auto Parts is one of the most visible brands in sports marketing today.
Woodhull Raceway is just one place where racers get to reap the benefits of ‘NAPA Know How’ during the upcoming 2020 race season.
A collective effort from five local NAPA Auto Parts stores will sponsor the Crate Sportsman Modified division this season at ‘New York’s Toughest Bullring.’ Those NAPA locations include Addison, NY; Corning, NY; Bath, NY; Lawrenceville, PA and Hornell, NY who is a new NAPA location joining the fold.
These locations will present the weekly action for the Crate Sportsman division, as well as presenting the Crate Sportsman King of the Ring event on Saturday July 4. During the King of the Ring event drivers are paired off to compete in single-elimination, head-to-head races until a champion is crowned.
The Addison, NY, Corning, NY and Hornell, NY locations will also team up as marketing partners for the August running of the ‘Hustlin’ The High Banks 55’ for the Short Track Super Series. A large crowd will be expected on hand to take in some of the best dirt modified drivers in the Northeast on the Steuben County clay.
NAPA Auto Parts in Addison, NY is making the deal even sweeter to compete with the NAPA Crate Sportsman in 2020. As they have done in the past, their NAPA location will be awarding $25 gift certificates to Woodhull Raceway Crate Sportsman heat race winners.
Those $25 gift certificates are good for product purchases at the Addison NAPA Auto Parts location.
While Open Practice sessions are slated for Saturday April 4 and 11, with Opening Night scheduled for Saturday April 18 and the Modified Kickoff event on April 25. This is all very much up in the air at this time. Stay tuned to the website and Social Media for more details and updates.
