Harrah's and Orleans Racing Partner For the O'Reilly 250
Orleans Racing will carry the logos of Harrah's North Kansas City Hotel and Casino on the familiar blue and white background of the Orleans Racing Dodge in this weekend's O'Reilly Auto Parts 250.
Terms for the one race deal were not disclosed.
"We want to thank Harrah’s for coming onboard this week," said co-owner Brendan Gaughan prior to his heading east to this weekend’s event. "They have a very nice property right near the race track and they offered to make a deal for the Kansas City race. Of course being good friends with Robby and having him jump in our truck at Michigan we got used to having the Harrah’s colors around us.
"The whole team is staying at Harrah’s and they’re taking good care of the boys there," added Gaughan. "We don’t have sponsorship in the truck series so given our relationship with Robby and a relationship with his friends we’ve decided to run Harrah’s on the truck this weekend."
Gaughan will carry an eighth place finish from last year's run at the Kansas Speedway as his benchmark, with hopes to bring the Harrah’s colors home first in the July 1st event.
