NU-WAY AUTO PARTS RETURNS AS PRESENTING SPONSOR OF NASCAR WHELEN MODIFIED TOUR EVENT

LANCASTER, N.Y. (March 12, 2024) – The 65th season of racing at Lancaster Motorplex in Lancaster, NY, is shaping up to be one of the most exciting in the history of the facility. Highlighting the schedule is the return of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour on Saturday, August 3. Keeping with tradition, Nu-Way Auto Parts recently announced its continued support of the 150-lap event.

The Rochester, NY, based auto parts retailer has served as the primary sponsor of the event since its inception in 2021.

“It’s special to have the same sponsor return year-after-year.” said Mike Myers, owner of Speed Enterprises, special consultant to Lancaster Motorplex. “History and tradition are so important to all of us here at Lancaster and this continued partnership adds to the heritage.”

Nu-Way Auto Parts, with stores locally in Buffalo, Elmira, and Erie, PA, is a member of the Hahn Automotive family. Haun Automotive is the premier auto parts supplier for the Eastern US for over 60 years.

“We are glad to be a part of it again,” said Mike Maggiore, Director of Operations at the Buffalo location. “With the past experiences of our guests in attendance, we knew we had to be. Our staff and customers enjoy the race even more with each passing year. The more powerful the word of mouth, the more people that want to attend. Our involvement will be better than ever this year.”

Also expected to return is a talent-laden field of NASCAR Modified competitors including previous winners Austin Beers, of Northampton, PA (2023) and Patrick Emerling of Orchard Park, NY, (2021) as well as perennial front-runners like tour champions Ron Silk and Justin Bonsignore. The Catalano family should have a solid presence for the local contingent.

The Nu-Way Auto Parts 150 is sure to be a great night out for family, friends and fans of stock car racing, especially with Myers and Maggiore leading the way. “Having the support of Nu-Way allows us to do things that are meaningful to racers and fans,” added Myers. “It’s the formula for success.”

Among the most notable is a Whelen Modified Tour payout that will include $2,000 to start.

“The wheels are turning,” added Maggiore. “We’ll certainly be putting our heads together to see what we can do to make this the most-anticipated event of the season for fans and competitors alike.”

A full-racing card on Saturday, August 3 will also include Sportsman, Street Stocks, and 4 Cylinders. Fireworks will be presented by Skylighters of New York.

Tickets will be on sale in the coming weeks and will be available at SeetheEvents.com. The event website is hosted by Speed Enterprises Entertainment in conjunction with Lancaster Motorplex.
