Clean Harbors to become Entitlement Partner for NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series Race at Richmond Raceway, Aug. 10

Richmond Raceway announced today that Clean Harbors, North America’s leading provider of environmental and industrial services, will be the entitlement sponsor for the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series Race at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, Aug. 10. The race will officially be named the Clean Harbors 250.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to partner with Clean Harbors for our summer NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series Race under the lights,” said Richmond Raceway President Lori Collier Waran. “With Richmond Raceway’s shared commitment to maintaining healthy, safe, and environmentally friendly communities across our Commonwealth, it’s extremely fulfilling to have them on board for the Clean Harbors 250.”

“Clean Harbors is expanding our presence in the Mid-Atlantic and it only made sense to jump at the chance to bring race fans in this market the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series race. Clean Harbors owns and operates over 20,000 vehicles in North America making it a great fit for the series and hosting the Clean Harbors 250 in Richmond fits our business needs as well” said Aaron Mathews, Clean Harbors SVP of Marketing.

The Company serves a diverse customer base, including a majority of Fortune 500 companies. Its customer base spans several industries, including chemical, and manufacturing, as well as numerous government agencies. These customers rely on Clean Harbors to deliver a broad range of services such as end-to-end hazardous waste management, emergency spill response, industrial cleaning and maintenance, and recycling services.

Through its Safety-Kleen subsidiary, Clean Harbors also is North America’s largest re-refiner and recycler of used oil and a leading provider of parts washers and environmental services to commercial, industrial and automotive customers. Founded in 1980 and based in Massachusetts, Clean Harbors operates throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

The Clean Harbors 250 will be the first race of an exhilarating summer weekend in Richmond, as it will be the last race of the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series regular season and serve as the final chance for drivers to make the playoffs. The drama will then carry over into Sunday night when the NASCAR Cup Series drivers look to secure a playoff berth in the Cook Out 400 at 6 p.m. ET on Sunday, Aug. 11.
