Camping World to sponsor NASCAR race in Illinois
The Gateway International Raceway has announced that Camping World will be the title sponsor for the July 16 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race.
The race, which will be called the CampingWorld.com 200, will run the same weekend as the NASCAR Nationwide Series event at Gateway, the Missouri-Illinois Dodge Dealers 250.
Mike Skinner of Randy Moss Motorsports is the defending winner of this event, earning the victory after an exciting finish that saw top NASCAR Camping World Truck Series drivers and former Gateway winners Ron Hornaday Jr. and Todd Bodine taken out and Matt Crafton penalized for rough driving.
Camping World was the title sponsor for the race in 2008 as well.
"We're really excited to have CampingWorld.com sponsor the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at the Gateway International Raceway," said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World.
RV camping at the track is one of the best ways to enjoy a NASCAR race, allowing fans to stay close to the action and enjoy the comforts of their home away from home.
