Atlas Roofing to Sponsor ARCA Menards Series Race at Iowa Speedway


Atlas Roofing will become the entitlement sponsor of the ARCA Menards Series race at Iowa Speedway, the opening act of what is sure to be a historic weekend of racing. The Atlas 150, set for Friday, June 14, will be followed by the return of the NASCAR Xfinity Series to Iowa Speedway on Saturday, and then the inaugural NASCAR Cup Series race at the 0.875-mile oval located just 30 minutes east of downtown Des Moines.

“We have a long history at Iowa Speedway dating back to the track’s opening in 2008,” said ARCA president Ron Drager. “We’ve consistently had tremendous support from the community and the race fans in Iowa, and we’re thrilled to be a part of this historic weekend.”

Previous ARCA Menards Series winners at Iowa Speedway include inaugural winner Steve Wallace, son of track designer and 1989 NASCAR Cup Series champion Rusty Wallace, NASCAR on NBC pit reporter and NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Parker Kligerman, current NASCAR Cup Series drivers Ty Dillon, Chase Briscoe, and Ty Gibbs, NASCAR Xfinity Series drivers Sheldon Creed, Chandler Smith, and Brandon Jones, and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series driver Grant Enfinger. West Des Moines native Mason Mitchell, the 2014 ARCA Menards Series champion and 2015 Iowa Speedway winner, has recently announced his intentions to compete in the Atlas 150 as well.

The decision to come on board for the biggest weekend of stock car racing in the state of Iowa was helped by the simple fact Atlas, a leading North American manufacturer of innovative, high quality building products, is opening a $200 million manufacturing facility with 100 full-time employees in nearby Clinton, Iowa.

“Atlas is excited to sponsor the ARCA Menards Series race at Iowa Speedway,” Matt Erdman, National Sales Director at Atlas shared. “It’s a chance for us to celebrate our newly announced state of the art Iowa manufacturing facility that is currently in construction, and it gives us another great opportunity to further support our partnership with both Menards and ARCA.”

Based in Atlanta, Atlas Roofing Corporation manufactures roof shingles, polyiso insulation, molded polystyrene, and paper and coated facers for new construction, remodels, and renovations.
