Alpha Energy Solutions will sponsor both Camping World Truck Series races at Martinsville Speedway for the next three years, Track President Clay Campbell announced today.
Alpha Energy Solutions is no stranger to Martinsville Speedway. In 2014, they sponsored the Pole Award for the STP 500. The Louisville-based company sees the race sponsorship as a way to grow their relationship with Martinsville Speedway and the International Speedway Corporation.
The Alpha Energy Solutions 250 on April 2 and the Alpha Energy Solutions 200 on October 29 will be their first race entitlements.
“It’s always great to see a company expand their role in our sport and to have Alpha Energy Solutions do that at Martinsville makes it even better,” Campbell said. “The new Chase format in the Camping World Truck Series will bring even more anticipation to what are already two of the best races on the schedule and I’m really excited to have Alpha Energy Solutions be a part of it.”
NASCAR announced last week that the Camping World Truck Series will have a seven-race, eight-driver playoff with two drivers being eliminated after the first three races and again after the second three races, setting up a four driver championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The Alpha Energy Solutions 200 will be the first race in the Round of 6.
“Alpha Energy Solutions is excited to partner with Martinsville Speedway for both of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events,” Alpha Energy Solutions Director of Sales Gerry Lewis said. “Martinsville Speedway provides some of the best racing action throughout the NASCAR season and the Grandfather Clock awarded to the victor is one of the most iconic trophies in all of sports. We are looking forward to being associated with Martinsville Speedway and to support NASCAR racing for years to come.”
In addition to the relationship with Martinsville Speedway, Alpha Energy Solutions has also been the main sponsor for Ben Rhodes in both the K&N East and Xfinity Series.
