Speedway officials announced a partnership with 3 Amigos Tequila today.

“We’re pleased to partner with 3 Amigos Tequila and have them here during our upcoming race weekend,” MIS President Roger Curtis said. “We’ve had great relationships with beer and liquor companies over the years, so it’s fitting that 3 Amigos Tequila sees value in partnering with us for the 2011 season.”

He continued, “We know how serious the Michigan fans are about auto racing, and we take our tequila just as seriously – it will be a perfect match!”
