"Dawn has been helping Americans with kitchen clean-up for decades," says Kristine Decker, Director of North America Dish Care at Procter & Gamble. "We’re proud to be part of everyday family life, and important traditions like watching the race. That’s why we’re excited to join thousands of families at the track and in their homes on race day, so they can worry about who will finish first, and not how long clean-up will take."

"There are a lot of dedicated race fans in Chicagoland, and Chicago is Menards number one retail market. Through a B2B relationship with Procter & Gamble, Menards and P&G have partnered to help bring the Dawn brand to the ARCA race as the entitlement sponsor. It’s a great kickoff to a great weekend of racing."
