CLEAN HARBORS/SAFETY-KLEEN GLASS CITY 200 SEPTEMBER 17 AT TOLEDO
August 22, 2022: Clean Harbors and Safety-Kleen, the leading provider of environmental services, parts washers and performance oil products, is the new title sponsor of the track’s signature event, the Glass City 200, set for Saturday, September 17. The prestigious race is presented by Miller Lite, DTS Drive Train Specialists, the Hampton Inn and Courtyard by Marriott.
“We are extremely pleased to bring Clean Harbors and Safety Kleen aboard as the title sponsor for the Glass City 200,” noted Ron Drager, Owner and Promoter of the track. “The Clean Harbors/Safety Kleen Glass City 200 is a very, very important event on our schedule year in and year out. We look forward to September 17 and this signature event of the track, which draws fans and race teams from several states and Canada”.
The Clean Harbor/Safety Kleen staff will have a tent in the spectator concourse on race day, where fans can sign up to be in the drawing for a NASCAR Driving Experience, and select the track for this bucket-list item! A pair of Thad Moffit diecast cars will also be given away September 17. The drawings will be held at the break between the 2-100 lap contests.
Additional sponsors of the Glass City 200 include R & M Recycling, Sunoco Race Fuels and Bazell Race Fuels.
The defending race winners are Cayden Lapcevich for the Outlaw Super Late Models and Blake Rowe for the ARCA/CRA Super Series Late Models.
Entry blanks were sent out last week for the 100 lap contests that will make up the 200 laps of racing. The ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by Jeg’s stock-bodied Late Models and the Outlaw-bodied Super Late Models hit the track in separate 100 lap feature races.
Each event will pay $5000 to the winner and $750 to start, with bonus money available for each division of cars. Lap money at $5 per lap is being sold, with the leader of each of the 200 laps of racing collecting the bonus. To become a lap sponsor, call 419-727-1100.
