“With the current business model we have established with the National Sprint League 410 division, we see a great opportunity in getting not only our current marketing partners involved, but also adding new marketing partners in the expansion of the regional 360 NSL division,” said Quiring. “We are looking forward to announcing our regions and drivers in the weeks to come.”

Plans are under way to include six to seven regional series throughout the Midwest from Minnesota to Texas.
