STAUNTON, Va. For the 14th-consecutive year, Federated Auto Parts will sponsor the Federated Auto Parts 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series race. The 2009 race will be held June 6 at the Nashville Superspeedway in Lebanon, Tenn., and will be broadcast nationally on ESPN2.
“The Federated 300 is the mainstay of our motorsports marketing program,” said Rusty Bishop, CEO of Federated Auto Parts. “Every year we entertain over 1,200 customers as well as our manufacturing partners in Nashville during race weekend. This year we are especially excited to welcome the winners of our first-ever Federated ‘Start Your Engines’ Sweepstakes. It promises to be a weekend of great racing and fun for everyone.”
Last year, a near-capacity crowd, including more than 1,200 Federated guests, saw Brad Keselowski cross the finish line first to capture the checkered flag at the Federated 300. The crowd also enjoyed a pre-race country music concert while a nationwide audience tuned in the broadcast of the race on ESPN2. In addition, Federated customer Troy Doss of Louisville, Ky., was awarded the official truck of the Federated 300 during the pre-race festivities.
