The ARCA Menards Series East returns to action on Saturday, May 8th at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway. Track Enterprises announced on Friday that Crosley Brands would be the entitlement sponsor of the event.
“We are excited to be part of a great event at Fairgrounds Speedway, right in the heart of the music city. We’ve had a strong relationship with ARCA and Track Enterprises for a number of years,” said Bo LeMastus CEO of Crosley Brands.
Crosley Brands has become a leader in record players, jukeboxes, retro telephones, radios, and accessories to keep the past alive. Along with the Crosley Radio brand, Crosley Furniture has also grown into a leader of premium furniture for not only the inside of your house but the outside as well.
If you’ve been around ARCA for a while, you’ve heard the name Crosley before. LeMastus himself competed in 44 ARCA Menards Series races and 12 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events. The Crosley brand has sponsored races at Kentucky, Toledo, and Winchester in the past and has been the primary sponsorship on multiple cars and trucks.
“After a strong opening night event earlier this month, fans should be in for a real treat at the May 8th special. We appreciate Bo LeMastus and everyone at Crosley for helping make this event possible,” said Track Enterprises promoter Bob Sargent.
Joe Gibbs Racing driver Sammy Smith enters Saturday’s race with an eight-point lead over second-place Taylor Gray. New Smyrna winner Max Gutierrez sits in third while Mason Diaz and Joey Iest round out the top-five. There is a 15-point gap between first and fifth.
