Salt Lake City, May 22, 2019—Alsco Inc., a worldwide leader in the rental of linen, uniforms, healthcare garments and washroom products and services, is proudly celebrating its second year as the title sponsor of the NASCAR Xfinity Series Alsco 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, where the green flag drops this weekend at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 25. With this year’s addition of the NASCAR Xfinity Series Alsco 300 held at Bristol Motor Speedway on April 6 and the upcoming Alsco 300 at Kentucky Speedway on July 12, Alsco is the only company with multiple race sponsorships on the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2019.
“Our growing presence in NASCAR is something we’re proud of,” said Jim Divers, Alsco’s director of sales and marketing. “Coming back to Charlotte is a real treat for us—we always get tremendous support from our sponsorship partners here. Charlotte Motor Speedway is also a prestigious location for our employees, customers and prospects to enjoy and be associated with. Every year, we’re learning about customers coming from far and wide to take part in the race here—some even as far away as Alaska and Honolulu!”
The ever-expanding relationship between Alsco and Speedway Motorsports, Inc. (SMI)—which owns Bristol Motor Speedway, Kentucky Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway—benefits both companies and their respective partners.
“We continue to be very excited about all our partnership opportunities with our friends at Alsco this year and beyond,” said John Cox, vice president of business development at SMI Corporate. “Every year, we grow closer together, and with that comes a greater understanding of what opportunities we can have together. Aligning our visions and goals allows us to provide additional business-to-business platforms for Alsco and other SMI partners. When our partners are doing business with each other, we know we’ve succeeded and take great pride in our roles to help everyone be more successful.”
Alsco is very excited to present the pride of North Carolina basketball, Phil Ford, as the grand marshal for the Alsco 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. A native of Rocky Mount, North Carolina, his record-breaking college career, NBA career and Olympic gold medal set him apart as one of the greatest basketball players in history.
Ford will also be a co-host on The Sports Shop Radio with Reese and KMac while they’re doing a remote broadcast at the NASCAR Hall of Fame on Friday, May 24, from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. The show can be heard on wralsportsfan.com and 99.9 FM The Fan (ESPN).
Alsco is also thrilled to have our customer and partner, Jerry Hailey, safety director of Richard Childress Racing, as the race’s honorary starter. “The leadership he demonstrates for safety at RCR has made him an excellent partner for Alsco,” said Divers. “We’re so happy to get to work with him and his team on a daily basis.”
