Jack Arute and Dave Sutherland will be part of the GW Promotional Group for the upcoming season as part of the Whitcomb Five Series — a series of five New Hampshire races and special events being planned by the group.
GW Promotional Group is owned by Gregg Whitcomb and wife Jessica, and is heavily involved in the racing scene in New England. Additional information about the series, the dates and divisions will be released soon.
Arute, a highly respected broadcaster on Sirius XM NASCAR Radio and former pit reporter for ABC and ESPN, has covered NASCAR, IndyCar and more. His short-track roots were built in Connecticut at his family-owned Stafford Motor Speedway.
Sutherland, who currently serves as a Marketing Specialist with Monadnock Broadcasting Group, has also been around the sport his whole life. Working as a public address announcer at Monadnock Speedway for more than four decades, Sutherland has spent his life keeping fans engaged and entertained during exciting short-track action at one of New Hampshire’s top tracks. Sutherland is also a former turn announcer for the Motor Racing Network.
Both of the members of the team will be crucial parts of all five events. Arute and Sutherland will both serve as part of the broadcasting team for the races, showcasing the series and its drivers to race fans at multiple different tracks. Arute will also be part of the on-site podcast that the GW Promotional Group is planning. The Whitcomb Five Series will also make an appearance on Arute’s new podcast, Wind Tunnel presented by Advance Auto Parts. As part of Wind Tunnel, Arute catches up with some of the top personalities in the sport to showcase NASCAR racing to an extended audience.
“Jack and Dave have both been great friends of mine for many years,” Gregg Whitcomb, owner of GW Promotional Group, said. “Both of them are going to be major assets to making the Whitcomb Five Series a success. We have a lot of exciting announcements on the horizon and we’re looking forward to bringing forward a great product for the race fans. This is going to be something that drivers, teams and fans are going to want to be a part of next year.”
