Bandit to Sponsor Parker Kligerman, Kyle Busch Motorsports for Additional 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series Races
REMUS, Mich.— After a very strong and successful first half of the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series season, Bandit Industries has signed on with Kyle Busch Motorsports to sponsor Parker Kligerman for several additional races as a primary and associate sponsor. The first race for the new partnership will be July 5 at Daytona International Speedway, where Bandit will serve as primary sponsor with a special “stars and stripes” edition of the no. 77 Bandit Chippers Toyota.
“After that dramatic first race of the season where Parker brought home a fifth-place finish, we knew our sponsorship with him and Kyle Busch Motorsports was a good one,” said Mike Morey Jr., NASCAR director for Bandit Industries. “This is a great racing team with all kinds of talent, and Parker’s kept us at the front for every race we’ve been on the car. It’s just a matter of time before he gets his first Nationwide Series win, and we want to be there with him when it happens.”
In addition to the July 5 race at Daytona, Bandit will sponsor Kligerman in four additional races. Two of the races will be road courses, where Kligerman proved his talent by finishing third earlier this year at Road America. Bandit will also be with Kligerman at Chicagoland Speedway on September 14, with an additional race still to be determined.
“Parker is a great spokesman and brand ambassador for us,” said Christopher Smith, Bandit’s communications and public relations director. “He’s got all the driving skills to be a NASCAR superstar and he’s also just a great, down-to-earth guy. Our customers all around the world are much the same—they are superstars in what they do and how they get the job done, and at the end of the day they just love to smile and have a good time. Continuing to sponsor Parker in the Nationwide Series is something we’re excited about, and our customers are just as excited to see Parker representing their brand of wood chippers and wood processing equipment in NASCAR.”
Additional races are a possibility. For the latest NASCAR information from Bandit, follow Bandit Chippers on Facebook or Twitter, and visit the official web site at www.banditchippers.com
