--Marquee Event of Inaugural Short Track U.S. Nationals Named 100--


BRISTOL, TN (May 15, 2017)-Officials of Rusty Wallace, Inc. announced today that the Rusty Wallace Automotive Group (RWAG) will serve as title sponsor of this weekend's Super Late Model stock car event at Bristol Motor Speedway.  The marquee event of Bristol's inaugural Short Track U.S. Nationals will be titled the 100.

While RWAG principal Rusty Wallace has enjoyed much success as a driver on Bristol's high banks-with nine Bristol wins in the NASCAR Cup Series-his ties to East Tennessee go far beyond the racetrack.  Now with seven locations throughout the region, the Rusty Wallace Automotive Group is quickly becoming one of East Tennessee's premier automotive dealers.  The group currently sells new vehicles from Cadillac, Chevrolet, Ford, GMC, Honda, Kia and Toyota.

Launched just several months ago, the all-new is a one-stop shop for car and truck buyers in East Tennessee.  The site links the inventories from across all RWAG locations, making it easy for buyers to search for and locate the exact vehicle they want.

Noted Rusty Wallace, "When we were approached with this opportunity, it just made a lot of sense.  Obviously, Bristol Motor Speedway is a very special place for me, but it really goes beyond that.  This is a great opportunity to get the Rusty Wallace Automotive Group-and our brand-new site-in front of our core audience.  The 100 is going to be one of the biggest short track races of the year and we're proud to be a part of it."

The marquee event of Bristol's inaugural Short Track U.S. Nationals, the 100 is tri-sanctioned by the ARCA/CRA Super Series, the Southern Super Series and the CARS Super Late Model Tour.  Nearly 70 cars have already entered the Super Late Model race, with approximately 500 cars already entered for the overall event.
