Bangor company to sponsor successful Maine ARCA driver

Cross Insurance of Bangor will be the primary sponsor on ARCA Racing Series points leader Austin Theriault’s Ford for Friday night’s Crosley Brands 150 at Kentucky Speedway.

Cross Insurance will serve as an associate sponsor for the season finale, the Kansas 150, at Kansas Speedway on Oct. 20.

Fort Kent native Theriault, who drives for Ken Schrader Racing Inc., has built a nearly insurmountable points lead over second-place Dalton Sargeant with two races remaining. The 23-year-old has a 375-point advantage over Sargeant.

Theriault leads the series in virtually every category as he has six wins and 15 top-five finishes through 18 races. He has 11 top-threes, including a current string of six in a row, and 10 top-twos. He has finished in the top 10 in all 18 races.

Team owner Schrader said in a press release that, “Our team has had a dream season and we are really looking forward to Kentucky. Cross Insurance has been a loyal supporter of Austin’s and we are thrilled to feature them on the car (on Friday).”
