(LESTER PRAIRIE, Minn. – August 20, 2013) – After 10 consecutive wins at Madison International Raceway (MIS), super late model star Travis Sauter will try for his 11th straight win there; this time in an ARCA car. So impressed with Sauter’s run at “Wisconsin’s Fastest Half Mile” track, Roulo Brothers Racing has signed the third-generation Wisconsin driver to race their winning No. 99 Ford when the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards visits the Madison International Speedway Sunday, August 25 for the Herr’s Live Life with Flavor 200.
Lester Building Systems LLC will sponsor Sauter and the Roulo Brothers Racing No. 99 as the local ace makes his ARCA debut. Lester Buildings has a long tradition of motorsports sponsorships including Tim Sauter, Chub Frank, National Tractor Pullers Association, The Milwaukee Mile, Road America and the ARCA Midwest Tour. Habelman Bros. Cranberries will provide associate sponsorship on the Lester Buildings No. 99.
“I’m really looking forward to running the Lester Buildings Ford at Madison,” Sauter said. “I believe my experience at MIS will pay dividends this weekend. I can’t thank Lester Buildings, Habelman Bros. Cranberries and Roulo Brothers enough for the opportunity to race in front of the hometown crowd.”
“We’re excited to see Travis use his track experience in a top-tier Roulo Brothers car,” said Stephanie Beste, Lester Buildings’ Marketing Manager. “It’s a perfect fit.”
Jim Sauter, Travis’ grandfather, raced for Roulo Bros. in 1993 in the Winston (Sprint) Cup series and the ARCA series. Team owner and crew chief Gary Roulo comments, “Travis is a lot like Jim. They both strive for nothing less than a win. With Travis’ winning record at Madison and our second place finish in this race in 2012 and our win in 2011, we’re set up for success.”
