Joliet, Ill. – April 13, 2011 – Chicagoland Speedway today announced that STP has signed on as title sponsor of the June 4th Nationwide Series Race, the STP 300.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have an iconic brand like STP as the title sponsor of our June Nationwide Series race,” said Scott Paddock, president of Chicagoland Speedway & Route 66 Raceway. “The STP 300 is the kick-off to the racing season at Chicagoland Speedway, and with the widening of seats and the admissions of coolers, it will be a terrific taste of what’s to come when the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup begins at Chicagoland Speedway this September.”
