New Hampshire Motor Speedway officials announced Thursday that the University of Northwestern Ohio will sponsor the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event in Loudon in September.
The event marks the return of the Truck series to the 1.058-mile oval after a two years away from Loudon.
The Truck Series will share the Saturday schedule that weekend with the Whelen Modified Tour’s F.W. Webb 100 and the American-Canadian Tour Bond Auto Parts ACT Invitational.
“One of the many things I appreciate about the University of Northwestern Ohio is they understand and execute a marketing initiative that encompasses everything from weekly grassroots racing right up to a major national event like the UNOH 175 here at New Hampshire Motor Speedway,” New Hampshire Motor Spedway Executive Vice President and General Manager Jerry Gappens said in a release. “Our facility and event weekend will be a great platform to reach out to a very strong New England market to attract new students for their outstanding program. The value of a strong education in this sport can make all the different in winning a race or even a championship. We’re proud to be affiliated with an educational institution like UNOH.”
