Shore Lunch, Dutch Boy® Paints To Sponsor ARCA Menards Series at Elko 


The ARCA Menards Series’ annual visit to Elko Speedway will carry the entitlement sponsorship from two long-time series partners, Shore Lunch and Dutch Boy® Paints. The Shore Lunch 250 Presented by Dutch Boy® Paints is set for Saturday, August 3 at the tight 0.375-mile oval located just outside of Minneapolis/St. Paul.  

The ARCA Menards Series first raced at Elko Speedway in 2012, with current NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Brennan Poole scoring the victory. Other winners include the series’ all-time leading winner Frank Kimmel in 2013, current NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series driver and 2015 ARCA Menards Series champion Grant Enfinger in 2014, Austin Theriault in his 2017 championship season, 2024 ARCA Menards Series winner at Daytona International Speedway Gus Dean in 2018, five-time NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series winner and two-time NASCAR Xfinity Series winner Chandler Smith in 2019, six-time NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series winner Corey Heim won in 2021, current NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Sammy Smith, who scored his first career series win last season at Phoenix Raceway, won in 2022, and reigning ARCA Menards Series champion Jesse Love won in 2023. 

“Elko Speedway is known for the full contact fender-to-fender racing that has been the hallmark of the ARCA Menards Series for more than 70 years,” said ARCA president Ron Drager. “Every former winner at Elko is either a former series champion or has gone on to race and be successful in one of the three NASCAR national series. We look forward to seeing which one of our current drivers joins that exclusive list in 2024.” 

Shore Lunch soups, breading, and batters first partnered with ARCA series sponsor Menards in 2016. The business-to-business relationship between Menards, the country’s third-largest home improvement retailer, and Homegrown Family Foods, a leading food company with brands such as Kentucky Kernal, Southern Biscuit, Southeastern Mills, Crockery Gourmet along with Shore Lunch, brings opportunities to showcase the entire line of the company’s brands to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area’s Menards customer base and racing community. 

“The 2023 Shore Lunch 200 was one of the most exciting races of the season,” said Keith Vines COO for Homegrown Family Foods. “The fans saw a great race and we anticipate the Shore Lunch 250 at the Elko Speedway in August will be very exciting and look forward to being part of the race. Homegrown Family Foods is proud to be continuing our sponsorship under our Shore Lunch brand for this race.” 

“We are proud to showcase our partnership with Shore Lunch as sponsors for the upcoming ARCA Menards Series entitlement race at Elko,” said Michelle Bangs, senior brand manager, Dutch Boy® Paints. “Motorsports is a celebration of performance, resilience and innovation—values that resonate deeply with our brand.
