There is a strong activation presence from a wide variety of local businesses supporting the weeklong schedule of racing and entertainment activities at historic North Wilkesboro Speedway during the tradition-rich NASCAR All-Star Race, May 16-21.

Six dynamic partners from the surrounding Wilkes County community, including Tyson, Raymer Oil Company, Window World, ECMD, Cross Roads Harley-Davidson and Central Logistics will play a vital role in supporting events at North Wilkesboro Speedway during the NASCAR All-Star Race week. 

Tyson, which had a major relationship with the iconic short track in the 1990s, is returning to serve as the entitlement sponsor of the Tyson 250 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race on Saturday, May 20. The highly-anticipated race will be broadcast live on FOX and MRN Radio. Craftsman Truck Series stars Zane Smith, Corey Heim, Ben Rhodes, Nick Sanchez, Ty Majeski, Hailie Deegan and Carson Hocevar will be among those battling for the victory when the green flag drops at 1:30 p.m. ET. 

Raymer Oil Company began a relationship with the track during its reopening last year and is returning to sponsor All-Star Friday on May 19, which will feature practice sessions for both the NASCAR Cup and Craftsman Truck Series teams, as well as concerts by popular country music performers Midland and Chase Rice. Raymer Oil operates Fast Phil’s convenience stores and IGA Marketplace grocery stores, the Official Grocery Store of North Wilkesboro Speedway.

Window World, which is based in North Wilkesboro, is continuing its successful partnership with the track as sponsor of the Window World 125. The CARS Late Model Stock race will feature NASCAR Hall of Fame driver Dale Earnhardt Jr., Cup Series star Kevin Harvick and several other big names expected to be announced soon on Wednesday, May 17.

ECMD, the global supply chain provider to the residential building industry and also a North Wilkesboro-based business, announced its track entitlement partnership earlier this year for the ASA Stars Super Late Model Race, the ECMD 150, on Tuesday, May 16.

Cross Roads Harley-Davidson, located in Wilkesboro and providing customers throughout the region with outstanding service and selection of the latest Harley-Davidson motorcycles, partnered with North Wilkesboro Speedway earlier this year to sponsor the CARS Pro Late Models in the Crossroads Harley-Davidson 75 on Wednesday, May 17.

Finally, Central Logistics, a Wilkesboro company that specializes in moving freight and trailers across the country, will serve as the sponsor for the Hauler Parade that will officially welcome the NASCAR Cup Series transporters back into North Wilkesboro for the first time since 1996. The Hauler Parade presented by Central Logistics will be a part of Thursday’s downtown celebration on May 18 from 4-10 p.m.
