Delaware Speedway is pleased to announce at two-year agreement with local garage outfitter FT Garage which positions the company as the title sponsor for the Late Model division at the track.  The FT Garage Late Models are the fastest weekly racing class at the speedway and compete in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series.  The division also hosts a number of special events throughout the season including The Great Canadian Race on May 21 and the Canada Day Maple City Tire 100 on July 1.  They will also be competing in the APC Summer Showdown Presented by the Kyle Busch foundation which features NASCAR drivers Kyle and Kurt Busch.

FT Garage is a garage outfitter based in London & Tillsonburg which focuses on transforming simple garage spaces into dream garages.  The company offers Canadian made Hayley Metal Cabinets as well of years of experience with design and installation with their garage experts.  The FT Garage website can be found at http://www.ftgarage.com or by calling 519-983-3708 in London, 519-688-2469 in Tillsonburg.

“A lot of our installs depend on what the customer is looking for,” said Gary Couckuyt, owner of FT Garage.  “Depending on budget you can start small with simple cabinets or tool chests, right up to full garage customization.  For anyone who is into racing, hot rods, antique cars, or in general likes to hang out in their garage, we offer everything they would need to turn their garage into a custom man-cave.”

Competitors will have the opportunity to see FT Garage’s handiwork each week when they pass through tech inspection.  FT Garage is outfitting the Delaware tech building with new cabinets and flooring.  The installation will take place shortly after the start of the season. 

The first race for the FT Garage Late Models is Friday, May 6 at 8:00 pm.
