NAPA Auto Parts to Sponsor Spears SRL 125 @ RMR, Utah

NAPA Auto Parts to Sponsor Spears SRL Race at Rocky Mountain Raceways (Utah)

Bakersfield, CA – The Spears SRL Southwest Tour Series along with Rocky Mountain Raceways (RMR) are proud to announce that NAPA Auto Parts has signed on as the title sponsor of the July 21st 2012 race at Rocky Mountain Raceways in West Valley City, Utah (west of Salt Lake City).

“We are very excited to partner with the Spears Southwest Tour Series for the very first time in 2012 at Rocky Mountain Raceways!” stated Tim Wetterhus, District Manager, NAPA Auto Parts.

The Spears SRL Southwest Tour Series made a positive first impression with the fans of the greater Salt Lake area in its inaugural event at RMR last year, as race winner Jacob Gomes held off a late charge from M.K. Kanke and Derek Thorn in the final few laps of the 115-lap race.

“We anticipate creating a strong union and strategic partnership with the (Spears) SRL Southwest Tour Series that will stand the test of time and last for many years. The level of competition on this Tour, combined with the high visibility and strong racing image of NAPA Auto Parts, makes the sponsorship of this event a natural fit for NAPA Auto Parts, and we look forward to an exciting race in 2012.” Wetterhus concluded.

The “NAPA Auto Parts 125” will be the sixth event of the ten race series that makes up the 2012 Spears SRL Southwest Tour Series championship.

“We are very proud that a company like NAPA sees the value in being associated with the SRL,” stated the SRL’s Larry Collins.

“The 3/8 high banked oval of Rocky Mountain Raceways is a perfect fit for the ‘Tour Cars’ and our teams really enjoyed the Salt Lake area,” added Collins. “The fans and the track personnel made us all feel so welcome last year, our teams are already looking forward to this summer’s NAPA Auto Parts 125, it’s definitely a highlight on our schedule.”

“The SRL series race at Rocky Mountain Raceways last year was the surprise race of the entire season for me,” mentioned Gary Madsen, Director Of Race Operations at Rocky Mountain Raceways. “It beat all my expectations with great racing and great car count. It was a pleasure to work with the SRL staff and teams; they are very organized and strong in communications. I’m already promoting this to be the race of 2012, we cannot wait until July 21st.”

The Spears SRL Southwest Tour Series will organize two special events away from the track associated with the Rocky Mountain Raceways “NAPA Auto Parts 125” weekend. First, a motorcycle ride will be organized to leave from the Roseville, CA area on Wednesday and arrive in Salt Lake on Thursday afternoon of race weekend. Then on Friday morning, ‘Berkley Fishing’ will present a fishing outing for the SRL, all participants will be back before the afternoon practice begins. Everyone is welcome to participate in both these events – drivers, crew members, family and friends – but space is limited, contact the SRL for more details.
