Andy Belmont Racing; Continental Fire & Safety Extend Partnership For 2011
"Trenton, New Jersey Based Company Adds Another Year With ABR"
MOORESVILLE, NC, December 17, 2010 - - For an unprecedented 13th consecutive racing season, Andy Belmont Racing (ABR) will return to the ARCA Racing Series with Trenton, New Jersey-based Continental Fire & Safety as an associate sponsor of the No. 1 ModSpace / Construct Corps Ford Fusion driven by Chad McCumbee.
A simple business call in 1998 to Continental Fire & Safety Owner Greg Gore quickly developed into what is becoming one of the longest standing team sponsorship alignments in the ARCA Racing Series today.
"I first began talking to Greg (Gore) in 1998 when I purchased some fire extinguishers," said ABR Team Manager Andy Belmont. "I noticed that they were affiliated with a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team and I was very impressed with their business. A simple call to purchase some equipment has turned into a great relationship. I'm very honored to have Continental Fire & Safety back for another season."
Founded in 1974, Continental Fire & Safety provides safety equipment including fire trucks, pumps, ladders, extinguishers, hoses, apparel, first aid equipment and more. Continental Fire & Safety also provides equipment to fire departments and EMS squads throughout the nation. Their territory stretches from New Jersey through Eastern Pennsylvania.
"To once again team up with Andy Belmont and Andy Belmont Racing for a 13th season is our honor," said Continental Fire & Safety President Greg Gore. "They have literally treated us like family since day one. Their dedication and enthusiasm is what our company thrives on. We're wishing the best to Andy (Belmont) and Chad (McCumbee) in 2011. We have a feeling it's going to be a spectacular year."
Continental Fire & Safety also has a sister company Fire Apparatus Repair, Inc. headquartered in Hamilton, New Jersey.
Two-time ARCA Racing Series winner Chad McCumbee and Andy Belmont Racing will kick off their 2011 racing season with an open-test at the newly paved Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway from January 11-13, 2011. The team will then be able to fine-tune their Ford Fusion in preparation for the 2011 ARCA Racing Series season-opener, the Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway set for Saturday, February 12, 2011.
