– The 2020 Spencer Speedway Season to be presented by Wilbert’s U-Pull-It –

Williamson, New York (March 6, 2020) – The 66th season of stock car racing action at Spencer Speedway in Williamson, N.Y., is shaping up to be one of the most exciting in the track’s history. Following the pattern of the 2019 season, six events and one practice will give teams from throughout the region an opportunity to compete in several premier events at the half-mile speed plant entertaining fans throughout the area.

The action at Spencer Speedway will be presented by Wilbert’s U-Pull It this season. Wilbert’s U-Pull It will also be the title sponsor for the Four Cylinder and Super Six divisions. The Wilbert’s U-Pull It Four Cylinder division will appear five times, while the Wilbert’s U-Pull It Super Six division will make four appearances at the track this season.

Wilbert’s, a familiar name in Western and Central New York, was founded by Arthur Wilbert in 1952. Arthur became the patriarch for one of the largest and most modern automotive recycling facilities in New York. From humble beginnings as a one man collision shop, Wilbert’s has grown from a single facility offering only Buick parts to three facilities offering a full range of recycled domestic and import auto and light truck parts built where Cars and Car Service developed into a family passion, as well as a Christmas Tree Farm which has been passed down through generations. Today Art Wilbert’s sons maintain the business and the family customer service tradition built around the Wilbert name, while their facilities dot the landscape on Route 104, East of Rochester, along with a Wilbert’s U-Pull It location in Bath, N.Y., offering customers a variety of automotive services, superior customer service and quality tested recycled parts at reasonable prices, including the unique option of U-Pull It, where customers have the ability to save and get the specific parts they need.
