FAS Lane Racing Lands Local Sponsor – Bully Hill Vineyards With Andrew Ranger At the Wheel
Mooresville, North Carolina (August 11, 2011) – FAS Lane Racing announced today the addition of the finest local vineyard, Bully Hill Vineyards, as the primary sponsor of the #32 NASCAR Sprint Cup Ford this weekend at Watkins Glen International. In addition to the local flavor of Bully Hill Vineyards, up and coming racer Andrew Ranger, from nearby province of Quebec, will pilot the #32.
Ranger brings plenty of experience to the table this weekend with several road course starts already under his belt. Ranger is the 2007 and 2009 Canadian Tire Series Champion. Ranger also has a few NASCAR Nationwide Series starts, where he finished a career-best third at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal in 2009. Ranger’s first Nationwide Series start also came at Watkins Glen International in 2002. Ranger also competed in the Champ Car Series during the 2005 and 2006 seasons.
“I am truly overwhelmed that Mr. Stoddard has given me this great opportunity,” Ranger said. “It's been five years now that I left single-seater racing to undertake a challenging stock car career. To drive in the Sprint Cup series is a dream come true and a huge step I have been seeking for.”
Founded in 1970 as a small estate winery, Bully Hill Vineyards has grown to become New York State’s largest family-owned winery. Nestled in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region of New York State, Bully Hill Vineyards is one of America's most unique wineries. The estate features a tasting room, gift shop, art gallery, wine museum and restaurant which features unique and innovative cuisine.

With all Frank's success with Boris Said we look forward to a great first run with Andrew."
