(Superior, Wis.) ~ AMSOIL INC., the First in Synthetics, continues its support of dirt track racing in the Midwest as the new title sponsor of the Superior Speedway at the Head of the Lakes fairgrounds on the south end of the city. The sponsorship agreement will offer up naming rights to the facility and the track formerly known as Superior Speedway will now, for the next three years at least, be known as AMSOIL Speedway.
“We are very excited to have AMSOIL on board with us in our new venture at Superior,” said Speedway promoter Joe Stariha. “With the great changes that we have already made at the speedway this agreement brings even more stability to the track this year and for years to come. With AMSOIL being such a great business in Superior and being so involved in the racing industry. We look forward to having a great relationship with the entire AMSOIL crew for years to come.”
