CV Products Trackside Visits Maine, Illinois and Ohio

CV Products —  July 18, 2013 | Category: Trackside Program | Comment

NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series drivers enjoy their final break this weekend — the last until the season ends Nov. 17 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. But there’ll be no sunscreen and hammocks for these teams as they prepare for one of the summer’s signature races – the July 28 Brickyard 400 at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Meanwhile, there’s no rest for the weary – and that includes our team here at CV Products who make our Trackside Program run like clockwork. We’ll be in active attendance at NASCAR’s other two race series (Nationwide and Camping World Trucking), along with ARCA and the Pro All Stars. Look for our semi-trailers at all four of these races where we’ll be supporting the teams and anyone else lucky enough to secure a pit pass.

Here’s a complete breakdown of where we’ll be starting this Friday through next Wednesday:

Fresh off of a win in the Sprint Cup Series race at New Hampshire last weekend, look for Brian Vickers to possibly break through and visit Victory Lane for the first time this season in the Nationwide Series. Vickers has made four series starts at Chicago, posting three top fives and an average finish of 10.3. Meanwhile, Joey Logano will be the only full-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver participating this weekend. He sat on the pole for this event last season. In total he has made four starts at Chicago posting one win (2009), two top fives and three top 10s. Without a doubt, expect Logano to contend this weekend; his pre-race Driver Rating is 119.2 – third-best in the series. Finally, nothing bodes for better action than a little controversy among the contenders. Regan Smith and Elliott Sadler have some unfinished business heading into Chicagoland following some tough racing last weekend. Keep your eyes peeled starting at 2:30 p.m. Eastern Time on ESPN.

40th Annual TD Bank 250

CV_Trackside_Maine_Oxford_PlainsThe Pro All Stars Series – which is recognized as North America’s premier sanctioning body for asphalt Super Late Models – makes its annual hike up the Appalachian Trail this weekend for a stopover at Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, Maine. Originally constructed as a half-mile track, Oxford Plains today boasts a 3/8-mile track that produces nothing short of spectacular, action-packed races. Ever since the first TD Bank 250 was held at Oxford Plains in 1974, it has attracted not only the best short track racers from New England, but from across North America. And this weekend’s race appears to feature the same, with drivers traveling from as far away as North Carolina to take on New England’s best.

Among the anticipated “one-timers” is Scott Bloomquist, a member of the National Dirt Track Hall of Fame with more than 500 victories in a lengthy career. Wednesday’s 1-800-CARCASH Mudsummer Classic presented by CNBC Prime’s The Profit also will draw NASCAR Sprint Cup Series competitors Dave Blaney, Ryan Newman and Ken Schrader; 2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck champion and current NASCAR Nationwide championship contender Austin Dillon; and Tracy Hines, a former U.S. Auto Club Silver Crown and sprint car champion.
