BROWNSBURG, Ind. (March 28, 2018) – The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 is pleased to welcome over 20 new and returning partners for the 2018 season. Their support will fuel a schedule consisting of 49 full-point programs, 54 events in total when including the five non-point events contested in Florida during the early weeks of February, visiting over 30 facilities in nine states. The All Star Circuit of Champions will continue competition on Friday evening, April 6, at Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio; the first full-point event of the 2018 season.
Arctic Cat returns in 2018 as the title sponsor. Arctic Cat, purchased last year by Textron, Inc., represents the snow mobile division under the Textron Specialized Vehicles unit. The Textron Off Road division includes ATVs and side by side vehicles. With the intent to develop a sturdy connection with devoted race fans, Arctic Cat and Textron Off Road will promote their product lines through displays that will be on hand during select events throughout the season. Arctic Cat and Textron Off Road representatives will give fans an opportunity to see new product line, as well as learn about special sales and savings.
As previously announced, Mobil 1, the world’s leading synthetic motor oil brand, is now the exclusive and official motor oil supplier of Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions, joining the Series as the presenting sponsor for the 2018 season. Where many people see a race track, Mobil 1 sees an R&D platform, and that commitment to testing the latest Mobil 1 products in the most extreme conditions will be showcased during every ASCoC race. Mobil 1 provides a full line of products for racers including track-use only Mobil 1 Racing oil which features double the zinc versus regular street oils, including Mobil 1 5W-30, that have won the world’s most extreme endurance contests, and diesel truck oils which are trusted by many of the world’s leading heavy-duty equipment manufacturers. That means that no matter what kind of vehicle you use to tow your race car to an ASCoC race, what you and your family drive at home, or what kind of engine powers you to a victory, Mobil 1 has you covered.
WIX Filters, an innovator in filtration products, is now the official oil filter of the All Star Circuit of Champions and will support one of two dashes during the 2018 season. WIX’s product line includes oil, air, cabin interior, fuel, coolant, transmission and hydraulic filters for automobiles, trucks, off-road equipment and manufacturing applications.
