Wednesday, August 17, 2016
SPIRE Credit Union - OGILVIE, Minn. (August 17, 2016) - SPIRE loves nothing more than community involvement, families, fun and fast cars! On July 9, 2016, with record attendance at the track, SPIRE Credit Union and Ogilvie Raceway celebrated their new partnership. SPIRE Night featured Archie, the 1952 Ford pickup truck, as the pace car, t-shirts launched to fans, lots of racing, and fireworks followed the action-packed evening.
“Sponsoring the Ogilvie Raceway is a way for us to bring the SPIRE brand to our northern communities and be able to interact in a different way with race fans while supporting a family-owned, community business,” said Casey Carlson, SPIRE’s Vice President of Marketing. You’ll notice SPIRE on a mega-billboard, signage throughout the track and our staff will be at races throughout the season to promote SPIRE.
Ogilvie Raceway is a high-banked 3/8 mile oval dirt track, located on Highway 23 near Ogilvie, Minnesota. The 40 acre complex built in 2008 includes over 12,000 square feet of climate controlled spaces, featuring a full kitchen, bar and restaurant area, hospitality kiosks and display areas, modern restrooms and VIP suites. The meticulously maintained grounds also include south facing grandstands, high quality lighting, a state-of-the-art public address system and a trackside tailgating section along the turns where fans can watch the action from the comfort of their car, the back of their pickup truck or in their RV.
In 2015, the Wagamon Family purchased Ogilvie Raceway. With nearly 60 years as business owners in the automotive industry, they bring a passion for racing, family values and excitement to an already great racetrack. The entire Wagamon family is actively involved in the day-to-day operations at the track. The drivers put on a great show every week at Ogilvie Raceway and the Wagamon family’s goal is to provide the most exciting and enjoyable atmosphere in all of Saturday night racing.
“This is only the beginning of a fantastic partnership between SPIRE and the Raceway,” says Dan Stoltz, SPIRE President/CEO, “I’m so excited to continue our support of the vibrant and close-knit community of Ogilvie!”
