Olympic Auto Parts of Virginia to Sponsor Olympic Auto Parts 600

19 June 2001: Olympic Auto Parts of Virginia (www.forparts.com) and the Washington DC Region of the Sports Car Club of America (www.wdcr-scca.org) announced today that Olympic Auto would be sponsoring the Region's Annual Labor Day Double classic held at Summit Point Raceway. "The Region is very happy to have the support of all four of Olympic's Virginia locations," said Don Caldwell, Regional Executive. Caldwell added that "Olympic has really thrown their support behind grassroots motorsports."

Last year's event drew over 330 competitors to the challenging two-mile racetrack. Based on turnout for the Region's early season events, the Region is bracing for as many as 400 entrants. "The Region has been fortunate so far this year to have excellent fields and with the word out that Olympic will be hosting two participant dinners again this year, I think the paddock will be standing-room only for the Olympic Auto Parts 600," said Assistant RE Jeff Janoska.

The Olympic Auto Parts 600 will be the final two rounds of the nine-round 2001 Mid-Atlantic Road Racing Series Championship. This means that not only will the event have a large turnout of competitors, but most championships will be settled at the track during the weekend.

Tickets are only $25 for the 3-day event, with no charge for camping and children under 12 entering for free. For additional information, call 1-888-660-5039.
