On Tuesday, the Monterey Board of Supervisors unanimously agreed to extend WeathTech’s naming rights partnership with Laguna Seca Raceway for a further five years up to June 30, 2028.

The race track, which is owned by Monterey County, plays host to the NTT INDYCAR SERIES Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey which is the season-ending race. Speaking about today’s news  John Narigi, president and general manager of WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca said:

We are thrilled to have WeatherTech continue with their support in such a meaningful and enthusiastic way. “The WeatherTech team’s enthusiasm for motorsports and our community is unmatched.”

WeatherTech’s re-signing is another spark in the energetic resurgence at WeatherTech Raceway as the new Start/Finish bridge, site and drainage work, and repaving of the historical track are nearing completion. The grand reopening will be held July 7 with the MotoAmerica Superbike SpeedFest.

Naeigi went on to say:

“We thank the Board of Supervisors who approved funding to address much-needed repairs. The race track is going to be in the best shape ever, and the Laguna Seca Recreation Area will prosper year-round and well into the future. “WeatherTech Raceway has never been in such a prime position to succeed as it is now.”

The partnership with WeatherTech is a symbiotic one. WeatherTech has a rich history in motorsports and in supporting sports car racing in America through its title sponsorship of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Series. The Illinois-based company provides complete products for a wide variety of automotive care, as well as for home and pets. And like motorsports where every detail counts, WeatherTech’s high quality products are designed, engineered and manufactured in America.

Naeigi concluded saying:

“WeatherTech is a strong advocate within the motorsports field, and a staunch supporter of WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. “We enjoy receiving their feedback on ways to enhance the customer experience, whether it’s a race attendee, an overnight camper or day visitor.”
