TEMPERANCE, Mich. – Officials from TCC Materials, Track Enterprises and the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) announced today that Akona would again sponsor the 2013 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards event at Elko Speedway.
TCC Materials Akona brand of concrete repair products will be the race title sponsor the ARCA’s second visit to Elko Speedway on June 1.
“We are looking forward to working in partnership with Menards to sponsor the second Akona race to be held at Elko Speedway,” said Brian DiGrado, Marketing & Business Development Manager of TCC Materials/Akona. “This exciting venue gives us an excellent opportunity to highlight our Akona brand of concrete repair products, which are manufactured locally in Minnesota and are available at Menards stores across the region.”
ARCA’s first-ever visit to Minnesota in 2012 saw the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards invade the three-eighths-mile Elko Speedway. A near capacity crowd witnessed Venturini Motorsports development driver Brennan Poole capture the checkered flag in a lightning-quick 200 lap event which took an hour to complete.
Series officials, along with Track Enterprises president Bob Sargent, decided to extend the 2013 version of the Akona-sponsored race event by 50 laps, much to the delight of drivers and fans.
