Chase Mattioli to make NASCAR Nationwide Debut Saturday, June 27th, at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (Loudon), in the #07 Qik Joe / Milazzo Industries Chevy
Pocono, PA (6.24.08)--Milazzo Industries, a Pennsylvania-based manufacturer and national distributor of Qik Joe ice melting products and Lake Shore charcoal products, will sponsor 19-year old Chase Mattioli in his NASCAR Nationwide debut this Saturday, June 27th. Chase will be driving the #07 Chevy in the Camping World RV Sales 200, televised live on ABC at 2:30pm. Last Saturday, Chase and his cousin, Nick Igdalsky, drove to an 11th place finish in the KONI Grand AM Road Race at Mid-Ohio.
On Friday, June 26th, Chase will compete in his #46 Bobby Hamilton, Jr. Liquid Fence Chevy in the Heluva Good! Summer 125, a NASCAR Camping World Series East race, televised live on Speed TV at 5:10pm.
"This season is all about getting seat time, and having the opportunity to compete in a NASCAR Nationwide event; all of which is possible thanks to an incredible sponsor, Qik Joe," Mattioli commented. "What makes this really exciting is that I will be racing in the same race as Bobby Hamilton, Jr. He has taught me so much off the track, I cannot wait to see what he will teach me on the track. To be a Pennsylvania driver and to have the support of national companies home-based in northeast Pennsylvania is incredible," commented the 19-year old rising star. "It may be a few months before we will need Qik Joe ice melting products, but their charcoal products will be in great demand at Loudon this weekend with all the campers and people cooking out. Hopefully I will be "Qik Chase", and light up the track on Saturday with a good run," Mattioli concluded.
"It is an honor to partner with our friends and neighbors, and to be a part of Chase Mattioli's racing career," commented Milazzo Industries', Joe Milazzo. "This feels more like a family reunion than a sponsorship. Chase is a great young man with incredible potential both on and off the track, and he will be a great ambassador for our company," Milazzo concluded.
