General Tire is the entitlement sponsor of the ARCA Menards Series East race on Friday, April 29, at Dover Motor Speedway, the opening race of the Monster Mile‘s NASCAR tripleheader weekend this spring, track and company officials said today.
For the fourth consecutive year, the General Tire 125 ARCA Menards Series East race will take the green flag on the high-banked, one-mile concrete oval at Dover.
General Tire has manufactured tires for American passenger and commercial vehicles for more than 100 years, since its founding in Ohio in 1915 as The General Tire & Rubber Company.
"We are proud to continue our partnership at the iconic Monster Mile," said Travis Roffler, director of marketing for General Tire. “Over the past three years we‘ve seen some action-packed racing at the Dover venue, so we are thrilled to sponsor this event again. As we‘ve continued to support the ARCA Menards Series since we first became a partner in 2016, our track partnerships help to expand both of our brands even more.”
The ARCA Menards Series East has been a staple of Dover Motor Speedway‘s race calendar every year since 2001. Past Dover winners in ARCA Menards Series East events include Aric Almirola, Harrison Burton and Bubba Wallace.
In recent years, the ARCA Menards Series East served as a proving ground for top drivers such as William Byron, Justin Haley and Joey Logano. Ty Gibbs won the 2021 General Tire 125 at Dover.
“The General Tire 125 is a terrific opening race for our big tripleheader weekend this spring,” said Mike Tatoian, Dover Motor Speedway‘s president. “We appreciate General Tire‘s continued support of our Speedway and the development of talented, young drivers in the ARCA Menards Series East division. We look forward to our fans returning to the Monster Mile for another exciting race weekend at our venue.”
