Grassroots Event is Set for June 30th-July 1st at New Hampshire Motor Speedway
When the New England Short Track Showdown at New Hampshire Motor Speedway was announced back in December, it was designed to be an event for the grassroots asphalt short track racer. The concept of the event is to put those dedicated competitors on the largest racing stage of New England to have a shot at glory.
So now, as a presenting sponsor for the race weekend is unveiled, it is only natural that a company that is dedicated to the needs of the short track racer will enjoy the naming rights to the event.
ARBodies will serve as the presenting sponsor for the race, which is now to be known as the New England Short Track Showdown presented by ARBodies.
“We are happy to extend our partnership with ARBodies beyond the NEMST and SS Showdown Series to offer competitors in all fendered divisions certificates to get them through the tough times the sports brings to us all. ARBodies has been a staple in all levels of motorsports and this event highlights beginners to premier divisions, a natural fit.” Said NESTS promoter Bob Guptill
Based in Greenbrier Tennessee, AR Bodies is one of the founding members of the ABC (Approved Body Configuration) program in place at speedways and in touring series throughout the United States and Canada. AR Bodies manufactures a full line of track tested and proven race car bodies and components. Visit them online at www.arbodies.com.
Most competitors entered in the New England Short Track Showdown presented by ARBodies are already loyal customers to the company. From teams in the Granite State Pro Stock Series who use full ABC body packages to teams in both the Street Stock Showdown Series and on the North East Mini Stock Tour who may use anything from ARBodies nose and tail pieces to full Muscle Car body kits, it is not hard to find the brand’s products in the garage area.
The New England Short Track Showdown Presented by ARBodies is made up of four races that will feature the cornerstone types of cars in New England asphalt short track racing. Tour-type Modifieds will run with the Valenti Modified Racing Series, Pro Stocks/Super Late Models will run with the Granite State Pro Stock Tour, Street Stocks will run with the Street Stock Showdown Series and Mini Stocks will run with the North East Mini Stock Tour.
The event will be a fun one for experience race fans and newcomers to the sport alike.
