January 11th 2010 - Andersonís Maple Syrup of Cumberland WI sponsor of NASCAR Nationwide Series team at Milwaukee Mile on June 20th, 2009

For Andersonís Maple Syrup of Cumberland, WI sponsoring a NASCAR Nationwide Series team at arguably the most storied automobile racing track was an opportunity that was too good to pass up.

Andersonís Maple Syrup ( first sponsored Jay Robinson Racingís No. 49 Chevy for the ďNorthern 250Ē NASCAR Nationwide Series race at the legendary Milwaukee Mile racetrack on Saturday, June 20th, 2009.

Anderson's will again be sponsoring the #49 car in the "Dollar General 300" at Lowe's Motor Speedway on Friday, October 16th. The Cumberland business will also be the secondary sponsor on the #28 car of Kenny Wallace and the Border Patrol. The Nationwide Series race will be on ESPN2 on the 16th.

The No. 28 car is the well known ďBorder PatrolĒ Car driven by Kenny Wallace.   Kenny Wallace is part of the famous Wallace family and is well known and adored by Nationwide race fans.  As a regular in the top 20 Kenny always has a good showing for the No. 28 team and Jay Robinson Racing.

The Andersonsí sponsorship of the No. 49 pairs the company with one of the longest-tenured NASCAR Nationwide Series teams in the garage. Since 1999, Jay Robinson Racing has been a fixture on the circuit, competing fiercely against large, Sprint Cup-affiliated teams since their inception.  As Jay Robinson Racing has been a Nationwide Series staple, so has No. 49ís driver Mark Green -- Mark has appeared in over 250 Series races.

At Juneís Milwaukee Mile race the 49 car qualified at 14th with a time of 29.92 seconds. Live coverage of the race was broadcast on ESPN2.

The car only made it 30 laps, but Mark Green was moving up quickly through the field before he had to go to the garage on lap 30 with brake problems. The No. 49 car finished 35th.

In 1931, Paul Anderson first shared the distinct taste of Wisconsinís Northwoods in tins of his delicately sweet maple syrup.  Three generations later, the Anderson family carries on its sugarmaking heritage by bottling pure maple syrup from the same sugarbush their grandfather tapped for so many years. A healthy all-natural delicacy, authentic maple syrup is a nutritious, low-calorie alternative to artificial sweeteners and maple-flavored syrups. 

From its roots in Cumberland, Wisconsin, Andersonís Maple Syrup can today be found in grocery stores and specialty shops across the country.
