Aubuchon Hardware to sponsor Joe Bessey at Loudon

Picking up where he left off in 2001, Joe Bessey returns to the NASCAR Busch Series at New Hampshire International Speedway on May 11 carrying the colors of Aubuchon Hardware.

"NHIS has been a big part of my racing life," said Joe Bessey "I always look forward to seeing my northern fans and friends. The track has so many great memories for me, and I love racing there. Maine is home and so is NHIS and it is wonderful to be representing a sponsor with such a major presence in New England."

Bessey's return to New Hampshire will bring a chance to add to his list of accomplishments and personal history at the track, including 3 wins in the Busch North series, (1991,1994, 1995), the NHIS Busch North Series Track Championship in 1996, and a Busch Grand National Pole Award in 1998.

Along with his three Busch North wins, Bessey has enjoyed racing at NHIS in three of NASCAR's premiere racing series: Craftsman Truck, Busch Grand National, and Winston Cup, where he made his debut at Loudon in September of 2000, finishing 27th.

Returning to his favorite track also reunites Joe with Aubuchon, who along with Glidden Paint were sponsors of the NHIS track championship award in 1996. Aubuchon Hardware, which operates 144 hardware stores and one lumber yard throughout New England and New York also has impressive racing history in the northeast.

In addition to its long relationship with NHIS, Aubuchon Hardware is the primary sponsor of Carey Heath in the Busch North racing series, which returns to action on April 21 at Lee, New Hampshire, and will race in conjunction with the Busch Series on May 11.

"We are delighted to bring more racing excitement to our customers, employees and New England racing fans in May," said Marcus Moran III, of Aubuchon Hardware. "The weekend will be a very special event for us, and we are excited to be reunited with Joe in this effort."

Aubuchon Hardware, with its familiar motorsport partners, aubuchon.com and Glidden Paint, welcome new racing partners BrickMill Marketing Services of Nashua, New Hampshire, and Pottle's Transportation of Bangor, Maine. All will share the advertising design on Bessey's #6 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, as well as the weekend's activities.
