Magpul Industries Corp., is expanding its partnership with Kentucky Speedway by becoming the official Pole Day sponsor for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR XFINITY Series Friday, July 8.

"Magpul is thrilled to be expanding our third year of partnership at Kentucky Speedway with the Pole Day Sponsorship," said Magpul director Troy McMullen. "It's a perfect way to share our love for motorsports, freedom and individual responsibility with the race fans of Kentucky and the surrounding region."

The Magpul partnership has given the brand numerous signage opportunities throughout the race weekends. In addition, Magpul is a proud sponsor of Kentucky Speedway's annual Top Cop Challenge program where police officers from regional jurisdictions compete in NASCAR stock cars to identify the fastest officer. This year's Top Cop Challenge will be held in September.

"The Magpul brand is a perfect fit for Kentucky Speedway, combining quality and innovation with an aggressive growth strategy," said general manager of Kentucky Speedway, Mark Simendinger. "Magpul's support of local law enforcement is much appreciated and serves as a model of how a sponsor can benefit the entire community."

Kentucky Speedway's 2016 season begins in July with the return of a NASCAR tripleheader weekend anchored by the July 9 Sprint Cup Series Quaker State 400 presented by Advance Auto Parts. The Camping World Truck Series starts the weekend with the Buckle Up in Your Truck 225 Thursday, July 7 and the XFINITY Series Alsco 300 Friday, July 8.
