HARRAKA TO PROMOTE PIR AT MONSTER MILE
Paulie Harraka will make his debut at Dover International Raceway in the No. 5 Wauters Motorsports NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Ford F150 for the running of the Lucas Oil 200 Friday, June 1, 2012.
Harraka, who will make his first start at many of the series’ tracks this season, will promote Phoenix International Raceway (PIR) this Friday, a track he has run at during his NASCAR K&N West Series career. The No. 5 Ford will carry the PIR logo to spread the word to fans that they can start buying tickets beginning June 1, 2012 for November’s Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Weekend at Phoenix International Raceway.
As part of the promotion fans can save up to $5 per ticket from June 1 through July 4, during PIR’s value pricing period. Additionally, fans have an opportunity to have special access to enjoy the November race weekend at PIR by following Harraka on Twitter on this Friday, June 1 during the Lucas Oil 200 at Dover.
If Harraka should win Friday’s race in Dover, any fan who tweeted the hashtag #GoPaulie during the race will qualify to enter a drawing to be randomly selected to win weekend access to the exclusive Octane Club at Phoenix International Raceway this November.
The winner will be able to watch Harraka and team compete in the Lucas Oil 150 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event, as well as the Saturday Nationwide Race and the Sunday Chase for the Sprint Cup Series Race. All three races are the semi-final races of the season in each series.
“I spent four years racing on the West Coast, and can’t wait to get back out there,” Harraka said. “Phoenix is such a unique track and always makes for great racing action. It’s the perfect combo of short track and speedway, and I know the fans love it. We’ve got an awesome promotion with Phoenix International Raceway going, and I’m excited to be able to bring an opportunity like this to our fans. I appreciate the dedication that PIR’s Bryan Sperber and his team have to giving back to the fans.”
The drawing will be completely random, but fans must be 18 or older to win. Only one entry per person will be accepted.
Team owner, Richie Wauters in his tenure as a crew chief has scored two wins (Kyle Busch 2005, Aric Almirola 2010) and four top-10 finishes in seven NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events on the Monster Mile concrete race track located in Dover, Delaware.
“I can’t wait for Dover,” Harraka said. “That is one of the coolest racetracks in our sport, and it looks like a ton of fun to drive. Richie (Wauters) and I have talked about it a lot, and I know I’ve got a lot to learn, but really believe my driving style will fit it well.”
