WinStar World Casino has secured the title sponsorship for the fall NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Texas Motor Speedway, giving the expansive Oklahoma gaming facility the title rights for both truck series events at the world-class motorsports venue in Fort Worth.
WinStar World Casino replaces Chevrolet Silverado as title sponsor for the Nov. 6 Camping World Truck Series race and the evening event will be known as the WinStar World Casino 350k.
The race, the 23rd on the 25-event NCWTS schedule, debuted in 2005 as part of Texas Motor Speedway’s NASCAR triple-header weekend that also features Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series competition.
“We are excited to extend our partnership with Texas Motor Speedway, to include the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race in November,” WinStar World Casino General Manager Tamyla Moore said. “Our partnership with Texas Motor Speedway and the sponsorship of the WinStar World Casino 350 is a natural progression with the growth of WinStar World Casino.”
WinStar World Casino initially became a sponsorship partner with Texas Motor Speedway in August of 2008 when the casino signed a multi-year deal as title sponsor for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event in June that began this year. The WinStar World Casino 400 is annually paired with the IndyCar Series during that June race weekend.
“I’m extremely proud of that fact that our initial partnership with WinStar World Casino has blossomed to this stage in a relatively short period of time,” Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage said. “We both feel that this is a great fit and we look equally forward to working with them on their initiatives for the fall truck series race.”
On-track action for the WinStar World Casino 350k begins Thursday, Nov. 5, with two practice sessions (12:30-1:45 p.m., 2:15-3:30 p.m.) followed by qualifying at 7 p.m. CT. The WinStar World Casino 350k, a 147-lap, 220.5-mile event, will begin at 8 p.m. CT and broadcast live on SPEED.
