After several successful races with NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Mike Bliss and TriStar Motorsports, Bandit Industries has signed up for an additional three Nationwide Series races with Bliss in the No. 44 BanditChippers.com Toyota. The first of the three races took place last Friday with the Subway Jalapeno 250 powered by Coca Cola at Daytona.
"We've never raced at Daytona, and it means so much to us and our customers to be at the premier American race track for the Fourth of July holiday," said Travis Lint, large equipment sales manager and NASCAR coordinator for Bandit Industries. "Mike led several laps here back in February so he knows how to run up front at this track. We know he's going to make us proud."
Bandit and Bliss will then team up to attack Bristol on Aug. 24 and close out the NASCAR season at Homestead-Miami Speedway in November. With a string of consistent Top-15 finishes, Bliss is currently eighth in the Nationwide Series points race and is poised to move higher.
Based in Remus, Mich., Bandit Industries manufactures wood chippers, stump grinders, forestry mowers and horizontal wood waste grinders supporting a variety of industries around the world.
