SUNOCO RETURNS TO SPEEDWAYEXPO AS PRESENTING SPONSOR
is pleased to announce the return of Sunoco as the event's
presenting sponsor. The agreement was forged through Mike Joy and
John Holland, co-owners of New England Racing Fuel, supplier of
Sunoco racing gas and products to area racers.
Joy, NASCAR on FOX's play-by-play anchor, began his announcing
career at Riverside Park Speedway, which will be a big part of the
coming SpeedwayEXPO. Joy said, "New England Racing Fuel and the
Sunoco brand are really excited to help SpeedwayEXPO grow into the
kind of pre-season, must-attend event that we all remember. Our
title sponsorship will remind casual race fans of EXPO each time
they pump their gas at participating stations."
Holland added, "We are committed to local and touring racing in New
England and we're very glad that racers and fans will again have a
weekend event to gather, meet drivers, see race cars and celebrities
and get information for the coming season." In addition to their
involvement with New England Racing Fuel, both Holland and Joy also
have participated in New England racing as competitors.
