Pala Casino has begun a new partnership with NASCAR and RFK Racing ahead of the Pala Casino 400 NASCAR Cup Series race.

Scheduled for Feb. 26, the Pala Casino 400 takes place in Fontana, California, and is the second race of the NASCAR Cup Series following the Daytona 500.

“We thank NASCAR for their warm embrace of Pala Casino as the title sponsor of this NASCAR Cup Series race, The Pala Casino 400,” commented Fred Buro, CEO of Pala Casino. 

“Casinos and racing have a lot in common: action. Pala Casino has spinning ‘reels’ and NASCAR has spinning ‘wheels’ – they both spin fast, the experience at both venues is thrilling, and they both create winners.”

As part of the new deal, Pala Casino’s colors will be featured on Chris Buescher’s No. 17 RFK Ford. 

Dave Allen, President of Auto Club Speedway, noted: “Our fans will quickly notice the enthusiasm Pala Casino brings to the table. Pala Casino, NASCAR, The Auto Club Speedway, and RFK Racing is a winning combination.”

Buro added: “The Pala Casino team and the Pala Band of Mission Indians are very proud to sponsor this NASCAR Cup Series race. We look forward to enjoying many more years together.”
