Roadrunner Markets Sponsors 2014 Street Fights
The series provides the chance for anyone with a street legal ride to satisfy their need for speed at the legendary drag strip.
"Bristol Dragway is a premier racing venue that prides itself on exemplary customer service, which makes this partnership a natural fit," said John Kelly, COO and vice-president of retail operations at Roadrunner Markets. "Our founder envisioned Roadrunner Markets as the best in the business, and our employees are committed to fulfilling that vision by providing exceptional service to every customer who enters our stores, just like our new friends at Bristol Motor Speedway."
Jerry Caldwell, General Manager of Bristol Motor Speedway and Dragway, is excited for the new partnership and growing support of the grassroots racing series.
"We are proud of the momentum the Street Fight series has gained throughout the community and are pleased Roadrunner Markets also recognizes its significance," said Caldwell. "We have seen the dangers of illegal street racing, through this series we are able to provide a more secure, organized environment for people who love to race. This is an important, yet fun, program. We appreciate that Roadrunner Markets understand that and look forward to building a strong relationship with them."
