Maine is buzzing with NASCAR fever. Maine native Austin Theriault will be driving a Maine sponsored & themed car at this coming weekend’s Nationwide Race in Kentucky.
Not only that, he is driving the #57 Chevrolet Camaro for a Wicked Good race team – JR Motorsports. JR Motorsports is owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr and his sister Kelly Earnhardt. Their father, the legendary Dale Earnhardt, is a 7-time NASCAR champion.
Some of the news headlines:
So this is exciting for Maine! The sponsors are all Maine based – both public & private entities. NASCAR is the perfect venue for Governor LePage’s Open For Business initiative. Beyond the obvious publicity, this is a networking opportunity as well.
The race is this Saturday, September 20, 2014. It can, will & you should watch it on ESPNews @ 7:30 PM.
Go Austin! Make Maine even more proud of you.
