Barkhouser Ford-Lincoln-Mercury back on board with sponsorship at South Boston Speedway
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — Barkhouser Ford-Lincoln-Mercury will return as a major sponsor at South Boston Speedway this year.
Last season, the Danville, Va.-based automotive dealership provided the official pace car for America's Hometown Track and served as the sponsor of the Late Model Stock Car Division at the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval. This year, Barkhouser Ford-Lincoln-Mercury will take on an even bigger sponsorship role at the speedway.
James Barkhouser, president of the dealership, which is located on Riverside Drive in Danville, announced this week that Barkhouser Ford-Lincoln-Mercury would, once again, provide the official pace car for South Boston Speedway this season. This year, the track's official pace car will be a Ford Fusion. In addition, Barkhouser will also, once again, be the sponsor of the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series Late Model Stock Car Division. That division will be billed throughout the season as the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division. Barkhouser Ford-Lincoln-Mercury will also display a variety of vehicles at the speedway over the course of the season.
And, finally, Barkhouser Ford-Lincoln-Mercury will serve as a sponsor of one of the 19 events slated at South Boston Speedway during the 2006 season.
"We are excited to continue our affiliation with South Boston Speedway and to do so in an expanded role this season," James Barkhouser said. "The benefits that our dealership has derived from our past relationship with South Boston Speedway made us want to expand our sponsorship role this season. We feel that it is a win-win situation for us and the speedway."
"You can't beat the action at that race track," Barkhouser added. "It truly offers some of the best racing action around."
South Boston Speedway General Manager Cathy Rice said she and her entire staff were ecstatic to have the continued commitment from Barkhouser Ford-Lincoln-Mercury.
"We are truly very excited to have Barkhouser Ford-Lincoln-Mercury back on board here at South Boston Speedway," Rice said. "We've had a wonderful relationship in the past with them and we look forward to continuing that relationship for a very long time."
