HAMPTON, Ga. – Charlotte Motor Speedway announced on Saturday morning at Atlanta Motor Speedway that the NASCAR XFINITY Series race on Saturday, May 23 will be named the Hisense 300.

Hisense is a consumer electronics manufacture based out of China. Established in 2001, Hisense has quickly become the No. 2 ultra-high definition manufacturer in the world. The manufacture is sponsoring the Hisense 250 this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway, so the partnership with Charlotte Motor Speedway will be its second venture in sponsoring a NASCAR event.

“Charlotte Motor Speedway has a history of innovation and enhancing the fan experience,” said Marcus Smith, president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway. “Hisense is a partner that will bring NASCAR fans to the edge of their seats with their high-definition technology and incredible home entertainment experience. We look forward to introducing them to more race fans on Memorial Day Weekend at the NASCAR XFINITY Series Hisense 300.”

In addition to the partnership with Charlotte Motor Speedway, Hisense will also sponsor Denny Hamlin’s No. 20 Toyota Camry in the NASCAR XFINITY Series at Richmond International Raceway on Friday, April 24 and at Bristol Motor Speedway on Friday, August 21. The sponsorship with Joe Gibbs Racing’s No. 20 NASCAR XFINITY Series team will be the first partnership for Hisense on the team side of the sport.

“We’re proud to have Hisense partner with JGR for two races on our No. 20 NASCAR XFINITY Series Toyota Camry,” Joe Gibbs said. “Hisense is a respected global brand and we look forward to having them become further engrained into our sport with our driver Denny Hamlin behind the wheel.”
