1999 NASCAR Busch North Series Rookie of the Year Mike Bruno is pleased to announce he will drive the #3 Fisher Snowplows Chevy Monte Carlo for the remainder of the 2000 NASCAR Busch North Series schedule. It is the same #3 Monte Carlo he has driven all year, but now it will carry the Fisher Snowplows decals as his primary sponsor.
"I am truly excited to have such a well known and respected company like Fisher Snowplows on our cars for the rest of the season," an enthusiastic Bruno exclaimed. "Having Fisher get involved with our team is like a win for this team. We've had some ups and downs this year, but this comes at a really key time for us. We had a tough weekend at Loudon recently, after a pretty good run at Stafford. We have a stretch of about eight straight race weekends coming up, starting at Stafford. It will be nice to know we have the support of Fisher Engineering behind us for the second half of the year. We are all very excited and proud to be affiliated with a company that has been so active in this sport over the years."
Fisher Engineering has been involved in auto racing in New England for close to 15 years now and as a sponsor in the BNS for ten years now. Fisher Engineering has sponsored some of the legends from Maine such as Mike Rowe and Dick McCabe, whom they had great success with winning back to back BNS championships in 1992 and 1993. Fisher Engineering has also sponsored Joe Bessey in both a BNS & a NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race, Dale Shaw, who won a race for Fisher at New Hampshire International Speedway during the 1998 season, and Tom Bolles.
"Fisher Engineering is very excited to be involved as a major sponsor for Mike Bruno and his Bruno Motorsports Team," said Gary Dwinal, Merchandising Manager and Product Manager for Fisher Engineering. "When I used to travel on the road through out Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, I would always go to Thunder Road when I was in Northern Vermont on Thursdays. That's where I first met Mike, when he was running a late model up there. From the first time I met him I knew he was a very nice person and an excellent ambassador for the sport of auto racing. I have remained friends with Mike since then and consider him to be a future superstar in NASCAR. He has made some tremendous achievements running his own team this season while operating from a budget that is a small fraction of what the majority of the teams he is competing against have."
Mike and his team will debut the all new #3 Fisher Snowplows Monte Carlo at Stafford Motor Speedway on July 28. The team will have a completely new paint scheme reflecting the yellow and black Fisher Snowplow colors when they roll onto the track.
"We hope to have the Fisher Snowplows Chevy running up front at Stafford, 'that sounds good doesn't it,' Mike jokes! "We ran in the top five for a while last month when we were there, and we finished tenth. I would like to make our first race with Fisher a memorable one, maybe with a win this time around."
Fisher Engineering is one of the nations leading manufacturers of snowplows and ice control equipment. The company is located in Rockland, Maine with additional facilities in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Johnson City, Tennessee.
In addition to sponsoring race teams, Fisher Engineering has also been a title sponsor at Busch North Series events at Watkins Glen International Speedway, Holland International Speedway, Apple Valley, Jennerstown Speedway, Thompson International Speedway, Stafford Motor Speedway, Wiscassett Speedway & Riverside Park Speedway.
