Penfold Motorsports, which fields No. 0 Chevrolet Monte Carlos on the NASCAR Busch North Series for veteran driver Bill Penfold, announced that it has signed Mandeville Chevrolet of North Attleboro, Massachusetts as sponsor for the September 14th New Hampshire 125 to be held at the one-mile New Hampshire International Speedway.

The Penfold Motorsports Chevrolet, with Mandeville Chevrolet's logo displayed on the hood, will be on display at the dealership's Route 1 location on September 7th for the dealer's 80th anniversary celebration and All-Chevy car show.

Local newspaper advertisements for the dealer's celebration and car show are including mentions of the Penfold Motorsports car's appearance.

Doug Reinbold, a Penfold Motorsports crew member who lives in North Attleboro, was instrumental in attaining the sponsorship for the team.

"They're a family-owned business that's really interested in racing," he said. "They're excited about joining out team, and they're even talking about coming on board for more races next year, or as an associate sponsor for the whole year. They can't wait to see their car on the track, and they're looking forward to having the race car at their show on the seventh."

Ray Penfold, who owns the Yarmouth, Maine-based race team which is enjoying its best season yet on the series, is proud that Mandeville Chevrolet saw his team was worth investing in.

"We're looking forward to starting a relationship with Mandeville Chevrolet," he said. "I know Bill will do a good job as a driver. This is the first out-of-state sponsor that we've ever had, so we want to do an especially good job for them. You never know where it will go, and if it gets the response that other sponsors of our team have gotten, it should be advantageous to both Mandeville Chevrolet and Penfold Motorsports."

The car will be on display at Mandeville Chevrolet on September 7th during the dealer's 80th anniversary show, then go racing on September 14th at New Hampshire International Speedway, located in Loudon, New Hampshire.
