After a successful two races, Rydemore Heavy Duty Trucks Parts Inc. has signed on as primary sponsor for the Bruce Bernhardt owned 27NH Ford Fusion.

The Fitchburg, MA online and print based truck parts recycler President Tim Pomerleau announcing Friday, Rydemore will join the Three-time American Canadian Tour Championship winning Team for the balance of the 2016 ACT season.

“This is our first venture into big time regional auto racing and we are fortunate to have a top tier team like Bruce and Wayne available to represent us,” stated Pomerleau. “I know that many racers and race fans are involved in the transportation industry, and we hope to make Rydemore there go to source for many of their new, used and rebuilt part needs. We look forward to building a great relationship with the most brand-loyal sports fans in America.”

Rydemore is one of the largest heavy duty used truck part recycling/re-manufacturing faculties in the country, with over 20-acres and 70,000 sqft of warehouse. They bring 40-years combined knowledge in the industry. They stock all major brands of quality used and rebuilt trucks, bodies and parts.

“We’re really excited to have Rydemore on board full time,” stated Helliwell. “Obviously the change in the look of the car is a big deal; bigger than people realize. Whether we like it or not we are known by that orange car. So to bring a new sponsor to the sport, and provide them with a platform of being recognized just by the look of the car is what brand awareness is all about… We worked really hard to provide them with a look that will grab people’s attention and bring them to Rydemore.com. “

Helliwell’s car owner echoed his driver’s statement. “From a one race deal to this, is huge. We’re really proud to bring a new company into this type of racing. They offer a service that fits the racer and race fans perfectly. Of the sponsors on the car the least amount of time someone has been with us is three-years. We hope this is just the start of a longtime partnership with a great company…” stated Bernhardt.
