Bristol Motor Speedway today announced the Welch & Wilson Motorsports sponsorship of the season-opening K&N Series Event March 17 – now known as the Widow Wax 125 presented by SealWrap Repair Tape.
The Indiana-based organization operates a national warehousing and logistic company and distributes an array of race product lines.
Welch & Wilson Motorsports sponsors Ryan Blaney in the K&N and Nationwide Series through one of its brands, SealWrap Repair Tape. W&W Motorsports also has joint- venture sponsorship with Widow Wax and Tommy Baldwin Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
Jerry Caldwell, BMS general manager and executive vice president, is happy to have Welch & Wilson Motorsports as part of the Bristol team.
“We’re really excited about the K&N Series being here for the first time,” said Caldwell. “We know it’s going to be a great race for our fans and it’s obvious that Welch & Wilson Motorsports feel the same by entitling the event with two of its brands.”
The Widow Wax 125 presented by SealWrap Repair Tape is part of a Saturday doubleheader at BMS, which also features the Ford EcoBoost 300. The Ford EcoBoost 300 goes green at 2 p.m., while the Widow Wax 125 is set for 6:15 p.m.
Tickets for the doubleheader are available starting at $35 and may be purchase by calling the BMS ticket office at 1-866-415-4158 or 423-BRISTOL (274-7865) or at www.bristoltix.com. Tickets for children 15 and under start at $17.
March race weekend ticket packages, which include the Food City 500 and the Ford EcoBoost 300/Widow Wax 125 events, also are available, starting at $99. A package in the Wallace Tower for both Sprint Cup races also is available for $99, while packages for fans 15 and younger are available for the March races at half price. Lower-row seating for the Food City 500 is available with tickets starting at $65 for adults and $32 for children 15 and under.
Guests are encouraged to purchase in advance while the price is $5 less per grandstand ticket than the race-day cost for the same seat.
