The ARCA Menards Series and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series will race on the same night at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park, Friday August 11, 2023, and for the second consecutive year it is already one of the most anticipated race events of the summer.
“Reese’s has taken their involvement with the ARCA Menards Series to another level,” said ARCA President Ron Drager. “The “Reese’s Sweet Move of the Race” is one of the most fun and unique elements of every race on the schedule throughout the platform. We have a lot of fan engagement with everything Reese’s does in the ARCA Menards Series and we’re looking forward to more when we get back to Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park.”
“Last year’s ARCA Menards Series and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series doubleheader was everything we had hoped for and more,” said Kasey Coler, general manager of Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park. “It was great to have all the fans in the stands and on the hillside, and they were treated to two exciting and competitive races. We are already counting down the days to race day andwe’re happy to have Reese’s back on board for the ARCA Menards Series race. They’re great partners to work with and we certainly appreciate having some peanut butter cups in the office leading up to race day.”
