Wisconsin Sponsor in NASCAR Race
January 27th 2010 - Jay Robinson Racing ďFueledĒ by Andersonís Maple Syrup in Oct 16 Charlotte Race

After a successful debut as primary sponsor of the Jay Robinson Racing No. 49 car earlier this year at the Milwaukee Mile, Cumberland, Wisconsin-based Andersonís Maple Syrup returned as the primary sponsor for No. 49, driven by Mark Green in the NASCAR Nationwide Seriesí race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. The family-owned company was also an associate sponsor on the teamís No. 28 car, driven by Nationwide Series winning driver Kenny Wallace.

Nationwide Seriesí Dollar General 300 was held at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on Friday, October 16 and nationally televised on the ESPN2.

ďWe were really excited to partner with Jay Robinson Racing again and were happy to include our close friends, Brian and Jaime Wickstrom and Bill and Kelly Anderson on this trip,Ē said Steve Anderson of Andersonís Maple Syrup. ďThe whole Jay Robinson Racing team treats us so well, and you can really tell itís a top-rate, professional team. We had an absolute blast with Kenny Wallace and Mark Green in Charlotte.Ē

The Andersonsí sponsorship of Jay Robinson Racingís two cars aligned the company with Green and Wallace, two of the more experienced Nationwide Series drivers. One of three racing Green brothers, Mark has competed in over 250 Series races. A native of Owensboro, Kentucky, Mark has proven to be quick this season, notching eleven top-20 qualifying efforts, including a season-best start of seventh at Richmond in his No. 49 Chevy.

Also part of a racing family of three, Wallace is one of the more recognizable drivers in the sport. A native of St. Louis, Missouri, Kenny has notched nine wins and ten pole positions in his storied Nationwide Series career. Currently just outside the top-10 in driverís points, Kenny was looking to race his way into the top-10 in the Charlotte race with Andersonís Maple Syrup as an associate sponsor on his No. 28 Chevy.

Once again the #28 car lived up to it record with a great race and a very respectable 21st place finish. The Andersonís Maple Syrup Chevrolet driven by Mark Green qualified in 15th with his usual speed.

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.
