Gateway Motorsports Park’s inaugural INDYCAR event receives prestigious

2017 Spirit of St. Louis Award from St. Louis Attractions Association

  

January 17, 2018, St. Louis Region – Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Illinois, today received the prestigious and coveted 2017 Spirit of St. Louis Award for its inaugural Verizon IndyCar Series race, the Bommarito Automotive Group 500. The Spirit of St. Louis Award is a nominated program, activity or event that has contributed to the St. Louis region in that it has raised public awareness, increased visitorship, or in general had a positive impact on the tourism and hospitality industry.

“I would like to say thank you on behalf of Gateway Motorsports Park and our staff,” said owner and CEO Curtis Francois. “There were so many people involved. Our staff worked tirelessly to make the event a success. We reached out and tried to educate the community as to what this event means to St. Louis. It was a community effort to make this work.

“We’re looking forward to the future. This was the first of a five-year deal. We’ve been asked to go to different areas and tell them what we did to promote this. It was pretty simple: We got the community involved.

“To know we were in competition for this award with so many other events last year in the St. Louis area makes it truly gratifying.”

The award was presented by SLAA president Jennifer Hollenkamp.

Last November, Gateway Motorsports Park received the Outstanding Facility of the Year Award at the annual Race Track Business Conference (RTBC) at the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) trade show in Indianapolis.

    • Long Beach’s Grand Prix report is $150K worth of obvious points
      That report was made public Monday afternoon, and it’s loaded with an absence of surprises, although there are a few bits of weirdness involved. Rather than submit what KPMG said would be an ideal computer-aided design plan for the proposed F1 track that would identify all mandatory components required following FIA (the governing body of […]
