Published November 11, 2013
CUP NEWS: Sperber also said that PIR would “jump at the chance” to host the Sprint Cup season finale, but there are “no real plans there” (TWITTER.com, 11/10). USA Today’s Jeff Gluck wrote PIR "needs a facility upgrade before it could host a championship race” (TWITTER.com, 11/10). Quicken Loans yesterday announced it will become the new title sponsor of the Veterans Day weekend NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at PIR. The company also will continue as title sponsor of the June Sprint Cup race at Michigan Int'l Speedway. The race will conclude PIR's 50th anniversary season (Quicken Loans).
