Toledo, Ohio (August 19, 2020) – Sherwin-Williams Company, Track Enterprises, World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway and the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) announced today that Dutch Boy® Paints will sponsor the rescheduled 2020 ARCA Menards Series visit to WWT Raceway in Madison, Ill.
The Dutch Boy 150 is now scheduled for Saturday, August 29 at 6 pm ET/5 pm CT. ARCA practice will precede the 120-lap/150-mile event, which is scheduled for live broadcast coverage on MAVTV. The Saturday ARCA raceday schedule will also include an NTT Data IndyCar race event prior to the Dutch Boy 150.
“Auto racing is part of the fabric of America, and so is the Dutch Boy brand,” said Michelle Bangs, brand manager for Dutch Boy Paints. “It’s fitting that we come together for the ARCA Menards Series Dutch Boy 150. We’re proud to support ARCA and our exclusive retail partner, Menards, to bring this race to the fans.”
The Dutch Boy 150, originally scheduled for August 2, will be race No. 13 of the 20-race ARCA Menards Series schedule. In addition, the event will mark the seventh round of the Sioux Chief Showdown, ARCA’s short-track super series that brings drivers and teams from the ARCA Menards Series East and West together with AMS series regulars in a 10-race “series within a series.”
St. Louis-area Menards stores will offer local race fans the chance to “Save Big Money” by purchasing advance, discounted race tickets to the Dutch Boy 150 Tickets at participating Menards locations are just $25, a savings of $35 from the walk-up ticket price.
“We are excited to partner with the Dutch Boy brand to bring the ARCA Menards Series to the greater St. Louis market,” said Jeff Abbott, promotions manager and spokesperson for Menards. “St. Louis is a growing market for Menards, and we know there are a lot of race fans in the area. Combined with the IndyCar Series and the NASCAR Gander Outdoors & RV Truck Series, it’s going to be one of the biggest racing events of the season in the Midwest, and there will be a lot of Menards flavor to every one of the four races over the course of the two days.”
The Saturday, August 29 Dutch Boy 150 will also serve as a prelude to the IndyCar and NASCAR Truck Series double header on Sunday, August 30, giving area race fans a weekend to remember.
“We’re motivated to bring the ARCA Menards Series back to St. Louis, and to showcase the series to the great race fans in the area,” said Bob Sargent, president of Track Enterprises. “St. Louis is a great sports town and, more importantly, a great racing town. It’s a great fit for the ARCA Menards Series cars, and we look forward to another great race and being a part of the Sioux Chief Showdown.”
