Boston Beer Company To Serve As Presenting Sponsor For Wednesday Events At Thompson Speedway

(Press Release from American-Canadian Tour)

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Pro All Stars Series (PASS) have reached a multi-race sponsorship agreement with Boston Beer Company for the upcoming summer racing series at Connecticut’s Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. Boston Beer Co has teamed with their long-time partner Hartford Distributing to sponsor this year’s Wednesday night racing series.

The partnership will serve as headlining sponsor at all four Wednesday night events through their popular Twisted Tea, Samuel Adams Wicked Series, and Truly Hard Seltzer brands. Each of the four events includes a $5,000-to-win Outlaw Open Modified Series showdown along with a full card for all five local Thompson divisions. The first Wednesday night event on June 16 will now be known as the Nutmeg State 75 presented by Twisted Tea.

Thompson racing continues on Wednesday, July 7 with the Sam Adams Wicked Hazy IPA Spirit of 76. The real-life Samuel Adams was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, making the sponsorship a fitting choice for the track’s holiday event.

Wednesday, August 11, a six-division card roars to life at the Truly Lemonade Hard Seltzer Midsummer 75. The Wednesday night program concludes on September 15 with the Tripoint Showdown 75 presented by Twisted Tea.

All four events have a 5:30pm post time. As part of the agreement, Boston Beer Company products will be sold in the Thompson Speedway concession area for fans of legal drinking age.

The agreement continues a partnership that began in 2020. Boston Beer Company sponsored three divisions at the 58thWorld Series of Speedway Racing, setting the stage for this year’s multi-race deal.

“We’re excited to partner once again with the Boston Beer Company at this year’s Wednesday night Thompson Speedway shows,” PASS President Tom Mayberry said. “They’re passionate about auto racing just like we are, and they understand the value it offers for sponsors. We’re sure a lot of our fans are looking forward to responsibly enjoying Boston Beer Company products while watching some great racing throughout the summer.”

  1. Well, this just keeps getting better and better.

  2. Fast Eddie says

    Boston Beer, welcome to Thompson and thank-you! More great work by the Mayberry and Michaud teams!

  3. 🌈🦄2020 says

    I’m almost as excited as the announcement of liquid death. I was really looking forward to drinking a nice cold can of water last year.

  4. Now see that’s the way God intended it to be. Racing and beer. Broad Brook Brewery becoming a force at Stafford and Hartford Distributors the real juice behind this move committed to Thompson.
    Do you believe it? In the old days we were locked into Bud, Miller and Coors. Maybe if you were on vacation you splurged with a Beck’s or Heineken. They may not sell as much beer at tracks these days but man it’s really good beer.

  5. I wonder with this announcement will Woody Pitkat be driving the Stan Mertz car in an open show since truly and twisted tea sponsor the 6 modified.

  6. Liz Cherokee says

    Isn’t this quite a concoction of news! I wholeheartedly endorse this marketing agreement!

  7. See that there is sponsorship money out there to be had if you just put the effort in. It’s a shame the track owners are so lazy and just didn’t want to run the oval because it’s not as easy as collecting greens fees or unlocking a couple gates for the road course guys to have a private race track. Simple little things like repairing broken bleacher boards or a coat of paint are not hard to do or cost a ton of money but let’s the fan know that the ownership is more than holding a hand out to collect that cash. Thank you gentleman for caring enough about racing to give it a honest go and PAY the racers what there worth.
