The green flag drops for the Ambetter Get Vaccinated 200 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, July 17 at 3 p.m.

LOUDON, N.H. – Ambetter from NH Healthy Families, a health insurance plan offering affordable coverage on New Hampshire’s Healthy Insurance Marketplace, has joined New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) in its continued effort to encourage New Hampshire residents to get vaccinated by putting their name on the Ambetter Get Vaccinated 200 NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) race, set for 3 p.m. on July 17 as part of Doubleheader Saturday.

“As a lifelong NASCAR fan and President of Ambetter, we are proud to partner with New Hampshire Motor Speedway and NASCAR to sponsor the NASCAR Xfinity Series at ‘The Magic Mile,’” said Brent Layton, president of U.S. health plans, products and international and executive vice president for Centene. “Ambetter is the nation’s leader in the Health Insurance Marketplace with affordable, high-quality healthcare options. We are thrilled to be a part of this iconic race, making vaccinations available and encouraging people to take charge of their health and be back at the track.”

“It is a pleasure to welcome Granite Staters back to New Hampshire Motor Speedway and continue to encourage people to get vaccinated to protect themselves and their families,” added NH Healthy Families Plan President and CEO Clyde White.

Ambetter from NH Healthy Families will be offering COVID-19 vaccines in the Fan Zone during the July 17-18 NASCAR race weekend at NHMS and The Centene Charitable Foundation will donate $25,000 to the New Hampshire Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities, the official charity of NHMS. Ambetter from NH Healthy Families also receives naming rights to the NXS race, as well as signage at the speedway, VIP dignitary roles and premium hospitality opportunities.

“We couldn’t think of a better partner to join us this year as we’re returning to the fun while still encouraging folks to get vaccinated,” said David McGrath, executive vice president and general manager of New Hampshire Motor Speedway. “We’re excited that the NASCAR Xfinity Series is returning to ‘The Magic Mile’ this year, and we’re thankful for partners such as Ambetter from NH Healthy Families to help us continue to drive the message of getting vaccinated so we can continue hosting major events and entertaining New England race fans.”

Before the 2021 racing season kicked off, NHMS was transformed into a vaccine super site for the state of New Hampshire on four occasions in an effort to help the Granite State battle the COVID-19 pandemic. Nearly 30,000 New Hampshire residents were fully vaccinated during the campaign.

Race weekend action gets underway on Doubleheader Saturday, July 17 with practice and qualifying sessions scheduled for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour (NWMT).

POCONO ORGANICS CBD ANNOUNCED AS SPONSOR FOR NASCAR CUP SERIES RACE ON SATURDAY, JUNE 26

LONG POND, Pa. (June 22, 2021) – Pocono Organics, one of the largest Regenerative Organic Farms in North America, will sponsor the NASCAR Cup Series race at Pocono Raceway on Saturday, June 26. Pocono Organics will highlight their line of USDA Certified Organic, Full-Spectrum Hemp CBD products with the Pocono Organics CBD 325. The Pocono Organics CBD 325 is part of the 2021 NASCAR Doubleheader at ‘The Tricky Triangle’ featuring five NASCAR & ARCA Races in three days, including two NASCAR Cup Series races taking place on back-to-back days, from June 25-27.

“We are extremely excited to partner with Pocono Raceway again this year as we continue our mission to be a catalyst for hope, health, wellness and healing by highlighting our line of CBD Products,” said Ashley Walsh, Pocono Organics Founder and President.  “Every hemp plant grown at Pocono Organics has been in our hands from hand-seeding to hand-harvesting. We hang dry our plants so that they retain higher levels of cannabinoids and terpenes – which makes a better-quality product. Each of our products include organic ingredients that you can pronounce!”

Pocono Organics’ wellness product line includes artisanal, small-batch CBD tinctures, creams, salve sticks, lip balms, body oil, bath bombs as well as a new launched pet-friendly organic tincture. These products are formulated in their own lab and are available online and carried in numerous retail outlets, spas, and doctors’ offices across multiple states.

“We are thrilled to partner with Ashley and her team as they work to educate and grow not only their USDA Certified Organic CBD products, but also educate those about Pocono Organics’ Regenerative Organic Agriculture practices,” said Ben May, Pocono Raceway President. “Pocono Organics is not only near and dear to me as part of our family of businesses, but also leads the way in inspiring people and we are thrilled to be a part of their journey.”  

In close partnership with the Rodale Institute, recognized as the global leaders in regenerative organic science and research, Pocono Organics brings the power of soil-based farming to larger audiences. Regenerative organic agricultural practices include low-till methods and zero use of chemicals and pesticides. This farming approach produces some of the cleanest and most nutrient-dense crops grown on earth – making them better for consumers – while also strengthening and healing the soil in which they are grown – which is better for our planet.

“At our core, we are Global Center for Research, Education & Discovery,” said Walsh. “Our strategic partnerships with Pocono Raceway and the Rodale Institute will continue to allow us to bring much-needed and well-deserved attention to the farming community as we drive towards a healthier population and a healthier planet.”

The 2021 NASCAR Doubleheader Weekend at Pocono Raceway will feature five NASCAR & ARCA races in three days, including two NASCAR Cup Series races taking place on back-to-back days.
