O’Reilly Raceway Park and AAA Insurance officials announced today that AAA Insurance has been named as the title rights sponsor of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at O’Reilly Raceway Park. The official race title will now be the AAA Insurance 200. Length of the contract will be for two years.

The AAA Insurance 200 features 200-laps of tight action packed racing featuring drivers of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series such as Mike Skinner, Ron Hornaday and last years champion Johnny Benson.

“We’re proud and very excited to bring this event to AAA members, AAA Insurance customers, and all race fans in central Indiana,” said Steve Vernick, vice president of Insurance for the AAA Hoosier Motor Club. “Just like motorsports, AAA Insurance is an Indiana tradition.”

One of five drag racing facilities owned and operated by the National Hot Rod Association, O’Reilly Raceway Park at Indianapolis was built in 1960 and has presented organized racing events since 1961. From March through October, the facility hosts more than 120 dates of racing on three tracks, a quarter-mile drag strip, a .686-mile paved oval and a 2.5-mile road course. Home to drag racing’s biggest event, the NHRA U.S. Nationals over Labor Day weekend, the drag strip runs more than 50 days of point-to-point action, from national events to street legal community programs. The oval track draws racing’s biggest events, including annual visits from the NASCAR Nationwide, NASCAR Camping World Series and annual USAC races. The road course provides a home for several racing sanctions, such as SCCA, while providing an ideal resource for driving schools, corporate outings and open-road tests for professional drivers. http://www.whowon.com
