“The Advance My Track Challenge is about identifying the most passionate race fans in North America,” said Jason McDonell, Advance’s executive vice president of merchandising, marketing and eCommerce. “Through this first voting window, we’ve enjoyed seeing how local fans, communities and drivers have rallied around their NASCAR home tracks to show their support. Our Advance team is proud to play a role in advancing the sport we all love.

Officials from Berlin Raceway also plan to make improvements to the track’s main concession stand. They also plan on starting a nonprofit that will benefit disadvantaged youth in Western Michigan.
