Boston Beer Company & Twisted Tea Support Return of Thursday Night Thunder at Thompson Speedway

Barre, VT and Naples, ME — Officials from the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Pro All Stars Series (PASS) announced Monday that they have renewed their partnership with the Boston Beer Company for a fifth consecutive year at Connecticut’s Thompson Speedway. Boston Beer, through its popular Twisted Tea brand, will serve as the headline sponsor for a pair of Thursday Night Specials slated for June 13th and July 25th.  

Both events include a $5,000-to-win Outlaw Open Modified Series Dash-for-Cash showdown along with a full card for all five Thompson Speedway track championship divisions. The first Thursday Night Thunder event on June 13th will now be known as the Nutmeg State 50 presented by Twisted Tea. The Boston Beer Company returns with headline sponsorship on the fourth oval event of 2024, Thursday, July 27th when the six-division line-up roars back to life at the Twisted Tea Midsummer 50.  

The agreement continues a partnership that began in 2020. Boston Beer Company sponsored three divisions at the 58th World Series of Speedway Racing, continuing as a summer series partner over the last three years, setting the stage for this year’s multi-race deal. As part of the agreement, Boston Beer Company products will continue to be sold in the Thompson Speedway concession area for fans of legal drinking age. 

“We’re thrilled to be able to continue our long-standing partnership with the Boston Beer Company,” PASS President Tom Mayberry said. “The fans enjoy watching some great Thompson racing while responsibly enjoying Boston Beer Company products and we’re glad to continue this relationship for everyone involved.”
