KANSAS CITY, Kan. — The Sherwin-Williams Company, Kansas Speedway and the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) announced today that Dutch Boy Paints, a subsidiary of Sherwin-Williams, will serve as the entitlement sponsor for the spring ARCA Menards Series race event at Kansas Speedway.
The Dutch Boy 150 is set to take place at the Kansas City, Kansas, track on Saturday, May 1 at 12:30 p.m. CT (FS1, MRN/SiriusXM). That race will be followed by the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, for which the green flag is scheduled at 6:30 p.m. CT (FS1, MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Channel 90).
“Dutch Boy Paints is a brand that brings people together, most notably through their passion for paint and do-it-yourself (DIY) projects,” said Michelle Bangs, brand manager for Dutch Boy Paints. “We are proud to stand with our exclusive retail partner, Menards and support ARCA, while extending this same sense of community to racing fans and their love of ‘America’s Sport.'”
Added Jeff Abbott, promotions manager and spokesperson for Menards: “We are excited to partner with Sherwin-Williams and the ‘Dutch Boy’ brand to bring the ARCA Menards Series to Kansas Speedway and the Kansas City market in 2021. Kansas City is a growing market for Menards, and Kansas Speedway is a great racetrack.”
Kansas Speedway has hosted an ARCA Menards Series race each year since the track opened in 2001. Bret Holmes took the checkered flag in the first of two ARCA Menards Series races at Kansas Speedway last year on July 24 and came back to secure a second-place showing in the championship race on Oct. 16, capturing the series title.
“This year marks our 20th anniversary at Kansas Speedway, and we’re proud to have hosted the ARCA Menards Series every year since opening our gates,” said Pat Warren, Kansas Speedway president. “We can’t wait to kick off another year of racing at Kansas Speedway, and we’re thrilled that Dutch Boy Paints has partnered with us to get the weekend underway in style with the Dutch Boy 150.”
The Dutch Boy 150 will be the first of two ARCA Menards Series events at Kansas Speedway in 2021. The series will return on Saturday, Oct. 23, for the championship race.
