Monaco Cocktails to sponsor K&N Pro Series Combination Event at Gateway

Monaco Cocktails, the United States’ leading purveyor of premium canned cocktails, has been named as the title sponsor of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series race on August 24 at Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Illinois.

The race will be titled the Monaco Cocktails Gateway Classic presented by West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame.

Gateway Motorsports Park is bringing more NASCAR to the Saint Louis region by introducing the popular NASCAR K&N Pro Series to the St. Louis region this year. This rare East-versus-West combo race will be only one of two contested in the United States in 2018 and is part of GMP’s August 24-25 INDYCAR Weekend.

The K&N Pro Series has been a launching pad for young racers to showcase their talent in front of large audiences, important team owners and sponsors. Now in its 31st year, the K&N Pro Series evolved from the NASCAR North Series that competed in New England and Canada in the 1980s and the famed Winston West Series that ruled the western states for decades.

The K&N Pro Series features America’s best short track drivers as well as racers from Mexico and from as far away as Japan. Some of the drivers who recently graduated from the K&N Pro Series into NASCAR’s major ranks include: Kyle Larson, Bubba Wallace, Justin Haley, Noah Gragson, Kaz Grala and Cole Custer.
