"The NASCAR community is fortunate to have such a great partner in Nickelodeon for this weekend and to utilize our sport in its activation plans. Nickelodeon is all about kids and having fun and I look forward to having some fun with the Nickelodeon characters and their guests at the race track this weekend."
