PORTLAND, Ore. – June 16, 2014 – Freightliner Trucks, the Official Hauler of NASCAR®, is offering an innovative way for truck drivers to attend select NASCAR® sanctioned events this year. At the first event of its kind, the Freightliner Trucks’ Run Smart Pit Stop will have special amenities just for truck drivers, starting at the NASCAR®-sanctioned three-race Weekend June 26-29, 2014, at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Ky.

Freightliner’s Run Smart Pit Stop will provide a secure, truckers-only parking at the racetrack with easy in-and-out access. Drivers do not need to drop their trailers no matter how large their load and can stay for up to three full days at the Pit Stop for the race activities. After preregistering at freightlinerpitstop.com, drivers can pull in and park at areas that will be designated on race weekend. The first 25 guests to register at www.freightlinerpitstop.com will receive two free tickets to the Quaker State 400.

Tailgating giveaways, prizes and games will provide entertainment beyond the excitement on the track. Special guest appearances from Team Run Smart Pro drivers are scheduled, and Miss Sprint Cup may make an appearance at the Pit Stop. Select NASCAR Sprint Cup Series™, Team Freightliner drivers will be on hand for a special Q&A session, and the Alliance Pit Stop and Detroit Experience tour trailers will also be available with additional amenities.

“Freightliner appreciates how hard drivers work every day, and we wanted to provide them with a special opportunity to take a break and enjoy a VIP experience at the NASCAR race weekend in Kentucky,” said Stacey Premo, manager, motorsports marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “The Run Smart Pit Stop makes it easy for drivers to enjoy a weekend of NASCAR races, and our Run Smart Pit Stop will make it easy and fun.”
