Back The Track Weekend Gets GWS As Sponsor
During the Puyallup Fair this September 22nd to the 24th, there would be one attraction that car lovers would surely go to. This is the Back the Track weekend event and it has got the Great Western Sports, or the GWS, as one of its sponsors. If you did not know, GWS is a subsidiary of the great International Speedway Corporation. GWS would be working with the Western Washington Fair Association for this event.
During the Back the Track weekend, goers and guests would be able to feast their eyes on show cars that have been rounding other auto shows. These cars would be those that come from the national racing series. Included is the #9 Dodge Dealers and UAW Dodge Charger driven by Kasey Kahne and this vehicle has gained its popularity because it has been in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series.
Grant Lynch is the president of GWS and he says, “The Puyallup Fair is a major annual event in Washington, and we are proud to have partnered with such a renowned organization like the Western Washington Fair Association. The weekend gives us the opportunity to showcase some of the most popular vehicles in major motorsports today, including Enumclaw-native Kasey Kahne’s #9 UAW/Dodge. We encourage everyone to come visit our GWS information booths to learn more about our project and how you can help bring premier motorsports to the state of Washington.”
Speaking of booths, various booths would be found during the fair. That way, people could roam about and in the process learn more about motorsports, the GWS, and other products and events that show off their trade and their wares. It has not yet been confirmed though if there would be booths that would be selling vehicle products like Volvo performance parts in the said show. But there would indeed be booths were interested supporters of various petitions can sign up in favor of it. Prizes would also be given away during the show.
Kent Hojem, the manager for the whole Puyallup Fair, explains, “The Puyallup Fair is known not only for tradition, but for cutting-edge new products and activities. GWS’ Back to the Track weekend is an ideal way to educate the community about the proposed motorsports project in Kitsap County.”
