MILLVILLE, NJ (June 6, 2018)
– New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP) is gearing up for one of the most anticipated events of the season, as the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East returns to the Millville facility for Father’s Day weekend, June 16. The JUSTDRIVE.com 125 will feature non-stop action both on and off the track, providing fans the ultimate race day experience. BMW CCA New Jersey is scheduled as the race support series.
“NJMP is excited to have NASCAR return again this season, especially on Father’s Day weekend,” said Brad Scott, NJMP Chief Operating Officer. “We are planning and anticipating for crowds exponentially larger than 2017. Fans have come to love the race day experience that includes access to pit and garage areas, drivers, and autograph sessions; access fans want most that they can’t get at other motorsport facilities.”
Scott encourages fans to “give Dad the give of speed” on June 16. In addition to the tire burning action on track, fan experiences include a fan walk on pit lane, open paddock access to the garages and drivers, a kid’s zone with inflatables, vendors and more. Children 12 and under are free and tickets start at $15.
“We are thrilled to be joining with NASCAR and New Jersey Motorsports Park to present the JustDrive.com 125 for the third consecutive year,” said MVC Chair and Chief Administrator Sue Fulton. “Last year’s event had a tremendous impact on our efforts to educate motorists about the dangers of this reckless behavior. It’s not enough to simply tell people about fines and penalties – we all have to work together to reach drivers before they get a ticket or are involved in a crash. Our message is simple: be safe – just drive.”
Since 2007, the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East has produced stars such as the 2011 Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne, 2015 Daytona 500 champion Joey Logano and 2014 NASCAR XFINITY Series champion Chase Elliott, along with NASCAR Next drivers Ryan Blaney, Kyle Larson, Darrell Wallace Jr., Daniel Suarez.
