Mooresville, NC (July 7, 2014) – TriStar Motorsports is excited to announce the addition of Matt Frahm to the driver roster at New Hampshire Motor Speedway this weekend. Gilchrist Metal Fabricating Company will serve as the primary sponsor of the No. 44 Camry at the 1.058-mile oval speedway.
Established in Hudson, New Hampshire, Gilchrist Metal Fabricating Company is focused on providing industry leading metal fabrication and welding for customers across the country. GMF has been a partner of Frahms for years and was the primary sponsor of his Nationwide Series car in 2011 for the race at NHMS.
“The last time Matt raced with the support of GMF, we were impressed by what he brought to the track,” said GMF President, Jack Gilchrist. “As a company, speed and precision under pressure are qualities we appreciate, so it only makes sense to support Matt with his new racing team, TriStar Motorsports.”
Frahm has nine Nationwide Series starts since 2011, two of which have been at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The New Hampshire native has an average starting position of 28.0 and an average finishing position of 25.5 at NHMS.
Matt Frahm Quote: “I’m really excited to be hopping back behind the wheel of a NNS car and especially with TriStar Motorsports at my home track of New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The TriStar family has been very helpful and accommodating and I can’t wait to see what our debut race together will show for a result. I’m also really glad to have Gilchrist Metal Fabricating back on board for the NHMS race. The support of GMF is great to have, as it is a locally company owned and operated by Jack Gilchrist out of Hudson, NH. I am going to work hard and put forth my best efforts to give TriStar Motorsports and GMF a solid finish this weekend.”
Be sure to tune into the Sta-Green 200 on Saturday, July 12th at 3:00PM/ET on ESPN2, PRN Radio and Sirius XM Channel 90.
