Skagit Nationals Adds Sage Fruit As Title Sponsor

BURLINGTON, Wash. – Skagit Speedway’s crisp new Skagit Nationals continues to grow into one of the biggest events of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series calendar.

Track officials announced Friday that Sage Fruit will serve as the title sponsor of the event weekend.

The Sage Fruit Skagit Nationals, Sept. 3-5, is a new marquee event that kicks off the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series’ fall West Coast Swing with an overall purse of nearly $200,000.

Friday and Saturday’s events will pay $10,000 to win, while Sunday’s finale will pay $25,000 to win. All three nights will also pay $1,000 to start.

“Sage Fruit has always been a big supporter of motorsports and we’re excited to have them join this exciting event,” Skagit Speedway Promoter Steve Beitler said. “Sage Fruit, which is also based in Washington, is well known for high-quality products and Skagit Speedway is known for its high-quality racing. It’s a great partnership.”

Based in Yakima, WA – about three hours south of Skagit Speedway – Sage Fruit is a grower, packer and shipper of the world’s finest apples, pears and cherries.

It’s been involved in motorsports for several years, including providing sponsorship for World of Outlaws teams like Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing.

When Sage Fruit heard about Beitler’s ambitions of creating a marquee event for the West Coast, it saw the Skagit Nationals as an exciting new opportunity in its own backyard, according to Chuck Sinks, President of Sales and Marketing for Sage Fruit.

“We’ve been a part of several Sprint Car events but have never been on a stage like this for a World of Outlaws event,” Sinks said. “When we heard about the Skagit Nationals, we saw it as a perfect opportunity to showcase Sage Fruit like never before and help grow the Skagit Nationals into something special. Race fans are loyal followers and great consumers of ours. This is also a way for us to give back and help support sprint car racing.”

Elite drivers such as two-time defending World of Outlaws champion Brad Sweet, 10-time Outlaw champion Donny Schatz, 2019 Knoxville Nationals winner David Gravel, two-time Skagit winner Logan Schuchart and more will battle to mark their name in the history books as the first Sage Fruit Skagit Nationals winner.
