DC Solar, Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s official off-grid mobile solar partner, has been named title sponsor of the track’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race for 2016. The DC Solar 350 will take place at LVMS on Saturday, Oct. 1, with John Wes Townley returning to defend his title from a year ago. It will be the 20th staging of the popular NASCAR series race at LVMS.
“DC Solar has been a great partner for LVMS, and we are delighted to welcome the company as title sponsor for October’s truck race,” LVMS president Chris Powell said. “DC Solar is a leader in the clean energy industry, and we are honored to welcome it to our title sponsor family. This is a great fit for everyone involved, and we look forward to another exciting and wonderful day at Las Vegas Motor Speedway with DC Solar and our other dedicated sponsors.”
LVMS and DC Solar partnered earlier this year to provide solar-powered EV charging stations and LED mobile solar light towers during this Spring’s NASCAR Weekend. This newly expanded partnership will dramatically increase the number of LED towers in use throughout the LVMS property.
“We had a great experience at Las Vegas Motor Speedway during NASCAR Weekend, and it is a thrill to become title sponsor of such a prestigious NASCAR series race,” DC Solar CEO Jeff Carpoff said. “We look forward to a great day at the speedway on Oct. 1, and we are excited to continue developing our partnership while exposing race fans to the benefits of green technologies.”
