1-800-Radiator Extends Support Of Must See Racing

HOLLY, Mich. – Must See Racing officials have confirmed that longtime series sponsor 1-800-Radiator & AC has extended its support of the series for the 2019 season.

1-800-Radiator & AC, one of the largest franchised automotive parts distributors in North America, will continue as a part of Must See Racing's national television package through Suzuki presents SPEED SPORT on MAVTV as an in-car camera and driver showcase sponsor at select events.

The company will also receive event announcer recognition, as well as brand showcasing on MSR race cars, the series winner's circle board, on the series website and inside the souvenir program.

1-800-Radiator & A/C has more than 200 franchisee-owned locations across the U.S. and Canada. The company distributes radiators, condensers, air conditioning parts, fan assemblies and fuel pumps - as well as related parts - with same-day delivery and in-stock rates above 90 percent across most part categories and 99 percent fill rates on most parts one day away.


The company was acquired by Driven Brands, based in Charlotte, N.C., in June of 2015 and is one of several automotive brand names under the Driven umbrella, including MAACO, Meineke Car Care Centers, Merlin 200,000 Mile Shops, Econo Lube & Tune, Pro Oil, AutoQual, Aero-Colours and Drive N Style.

The senior Beasley is looking forward to see the company's support of the series continue for another year.

"The synergy between the missions of 1-800-Radiator & AC and Must See Racing is amazing," said Beasley. "We both believe in providing value that cannot be duplicated by our competition and we are passionate about serving our customers and stake holders. Jim and Nancy Hanks' commitment to providing race fans the best entertainment value for their dollar matches the commitment that 1-800-Radiator & A/C brings to serving our auto parts customers. We are proud to be associated with such great people and to have the opportunity to continue sharing exciting racing with our customers."

Must See Racing Adds Date At Lake Erie Speedway

HOLLY, Mich. – The Must See Racing Sprint Car Series will break new ground next season with a stop at Pennsylvania's Lake Erie Speedway on June 15.

The three-eighths-mile Erie County oval will welcome the winged 410ci asphalt sprint car series for the first time amid the busy midsummer stretch that traditionally determines the championship contenders each year.

Next year's appearance by the Must See Racing sprint cars will mark the first time the open-wheel division has raced at Lake Erie Speedway since the mid-2000s, when the Hoosier Outlaw Sprint Series hosted an event at the facility.

The Race of Champions Asphalt Modified Series will pair with Must See Racing to co-headline the event card.

"Jim (Hanks, Must See Racing president) and I have been working together for quite a while to make this happen, and we think it will definitely bring an extra level of excitement to the summer event that we've held with the Race of Champions modifieds that wasn't there before," said track operations manager A.J. Moore. "It'll be one heck of a show and a very unique ticket.

"Fans should circle this event on their calendars and make plans to come out to Lake Erie Speedway on Father's Day weekend."

The Lake Erie date will mark the first of two stops in the Keystone State for Must See Racing in 2019. The tour will return to Pennsylvania in September for the David D. Mateer Tribute at Jennerstown Speedway.

"We are thrilled to welcome Lake Erie Speedway to our 2019 calendar and thank A.J., (track presidents) Donald Prischak and Daniel Prischak and all the staff who have helped to make this addition possible," said series president Jim Hanks. "We look forward to seeing the 'World's Fastest Short Track Cars' invade Lake Erie next season and putting on an entertaining show for our passionate race fans."

Lake Erie is the third new track for Must See Racing in 2019, joining previously-announced debuts at North Carolina's Ace Speedway in March and New York's Hillside Buffalo Speedway in July.
