The Automobile Racing Club of America and Sioux Chief Manufacturing have jointly announced that the plumbing manufacturer will become the title sponsor of the May 19 ARCA Menards Series event at Toledo (Ohio) Speedway.
The green flag will wave for the Sioux Chief PowerPEX 200 at 2 pm E.T., May 19.
Sioux Chief first partnered with ARCA and then the series’ presenting sponsor, Menards, in 2015.
“We’re excited to move our sponsorship to Toledo and the Northwest Ohio area,” said Joe Ismert, president of Sioux Chief. “Northwest Ohio, in fact the entire state of Ohio, is an emerging market for our products and the ability to sponsor the ARCA race there is a fantastic opportunity.”
Sioux Chief is also the title sponsor of ARCA’s Short Track Challenge, a series within the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards in which drivers earn points toward a championship contested on tracks one mile or less in length.
The eleven events that will make up the Short Track Challenge kicked off with the March 9 Pensacola 200 from Five Flags Speedway in Florida and will conclude at Lucas Oil Raceway Oct. 5. Teams and drivers will race for the Short Track Challenge championship under a special race-only points system, and officials will count a team’s ten best finishes toward the championship, throwing out each team’s worst finish.
The Sioux Chief PowerPEX 200 at Toledo Speedway will be the fourth race of the Sioux Chief Short Track Challenge Series.
