Aaron's Sponsors Dream Seats Promotion for ARCA RE/MAX 200 presented by Federated and Belle Tire at Toledo Speedway

TOLEDO, Ohio (August 31, 2009)--Aaron's, Inc., the nation's leader in sales and lease ownership and an official sponsor of the ARCA RE/MAX Series, will participate in the Fall ARCA RE/MAX Series race at Toledo Speedway through the Aaron's Dream Seats-Best Seats in the House Promotion. Through Wednesday, race fans who visit participating Aaron's locations can register for a chance to win the Best Seats in the House for the Friday evening, September 4, ARCA RE/MAX 200 presented by Federated and Belle Tire at Toledo Speedway.

Aaron's will position plush, luxury furniture on top of the VIP Suite in Turn One of the high-banked, half-mile Toledo Speedway, providing a once-in-a-lifetime view for four lucky fans. ARCA RE/MAX Series racing at Toledo Speedway has been noted for close, side-by-side racing and heated battles in recent years. This past Spring up-and-coming Penske Development driver Parker Kligerman earned his first of six 2009 race victories at Toledo Speedway. Last Fall the ARCA RE/MAX Series championship was determined at Toledo, with third place points contender Justin Allgaier claiming a season-high sixth win and overcoming a 110 point deficit after a series of on track altercations eliminated point leader Scott Speed and second place contender Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. from the championship race.

Heading into this Fall's Toledo event, the ARCA RE/MAX Series has contested 15 of 21 races and Eddie Sharp Racing's Justin Lofton leads the Series' point standings by a slim, 55-point margin over Kligerman. Series regulars such as Lofton, Kligerman, Frank Kimmel, Joey Coulter and Patrick Sheltra will battle locally based drivers such as Terry Jones and NASCAR veterans such as Ken Schrader in the Friday night short track thriller, which rolls off at 8:30 p.m. Eastern. Live timing and scoring, live audio and a live video feed will be available at http://www.arcaracing.com.

"This is the second year that Aaron's has partnered with Toledo Speedway for the Aaron's Dream Seats Promotion and this has turned out to be the single most popular promotion of the year at Toledo Speedway," said Mark Gundrum vice president of marketing and communications for ARCA. "I've sat in these seats, and by far, there is no better seat in the house."

Three Toledo Area Aaron's Locations are participating in the contest, including the 5115 Monroe Street, 2261 South Reynolds Road and 821 West Alexis Road Locations. The promotion ends on Wednesday, September 2.
