“We are pleased once again to be a part of the NASCAR’s Gander Outdoors Truck Series,” said Chris Blair, Gateway Motorsports Park’s Executive Vice President and General Manager. “Five years ago, when we signed our first agreement with NASCAR, a lot of people thought we would be a one-year experiment. This proves we are a longstanding fixture and important part of NASCAR’s racing program. Events like the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series, INDYCAR, NHRA and our ARCA event are very important in developing the future of motorsports in St. Louis. If we continue to demonstrate how much the fans love the racing at Gateway Motorsports Park, other opportunities may come our way for bigger and better events.”
