SPENCER, Iowa – Officials from the USRA have announced a new agreement with Arnold Motor Supply, with the automotive giant becoming the official auto parts store of the USRA and title sponsor of the Iron Man Challenge.
The Iron Man Challenge featuring American Racer USRA Stock Cars presented by Medieval Chassis and Out-Pace USRA B-Mods presented by Pace Performance will celebrate its 10th season in 2019, while Arnold Motor Supply turns 92 this year.
“We’re honored to have the opportunity to showcase Arnold Motor Supply with the Iron Man Challenge in 2019,” said USRA President Todd Staley. “Arnold Motor Supply sets the standard for customer service throughout the Midwest, and we share many of the same values such as the belief that businesses are not built with brick and stone, but rather they are built with people.”
With headquarters in Spencer, Iowa, Arnold Motor Supply’s commitment to the fans and racers includes a big boost to the Iron Man Challenge points fund. Up from $2,000 last year, each of the two champions will now be chasing a $3,000 top prize to take the title.
“Arnold Motor Supply is a dedicated supporter of the motorsports industry, whether that be partnering up with our local tracks, to ensuring the drivers and pit crew have whatever they need from parts to paint and everything in between,” said Arnold Motor Supply Marketing Director Elizabeth McDanel. “The partnership with USRA as the title sponsor of the Iron Man Challenge is another way for us to show our continued commitment to our customers and to the passionate fan base that shares in the dirt track experience with us week after week.”
Arnold Motor Supply is entering its 92nd year in business and has come a long way since we first opened our doors in Spencer, Iowa. The company now has stores throughout the Midwest, many of which are in markets on the Iron Man series schedule.
Each competitor in the Arnold Motor Supply Iron Man Challenge will be required to display an approved Arnold Motor Supply decal in a prominent location on both sides of his or her race car.
