Andy Belmont, Nick Igdalsky and ModSpace to Run Full Schedule of ARCA Series
"We are bringing a new sponsor and a new driver to the Series," said Belmont, who has been both an owner and driver in ARCA and NASCAR competition. "I think we have the makings of a team that can contend for the championship. This is very exciting for all of us."
ModSpace, headquartered in Berwyn, PA with 80 locations throughout the United States and Canada, is a premier provider of modular buildings for both businesses and organizations that have temporary or permanent space needs. Their sponsorship represents their support and devotion to the motor sports racing industry. For over 40 years, ModSpace has provided their customers with products such as; site offices, portable storage, custom designed buildings, and state of the art medical facilities.
"ModSpace is proud to partner with Andy Belmont Racing and Nick Igdalsky for the upcoming 2010 ARCA season," says Charles Paquin, President & CEO of ModSpace. "This sponsorship further demonstrates our commitment to motorsports and we wish Nick the best of luck."
Igdalsky brings an exciting new talent to the ARCA Series. He has been successful in road racing and short track oval racing competition. He was impressive in his debut this past September when he ran in his first ARCA race on the road course at New Jersey Motorsports Park.
"I can't thank ModSpace and Andy Belmont enough for the opportunity to drive the #1 ModSpace Ford in the ARCA Series. I have been watching ARCA races my entire life and I always had a desire to race in a series of this magnitude. Being able to race at Daytona, Michigan, and of course Pocono has always been a dream of mine. ARCA is the only series that gives a driver the opportunity to race on short tracks, dirt, road courses and super speedways," said Igdalsky, Senior Vice President of Pocono Raceway. "Having ModSpace on board is terrific. It will be a privilege to introduce a Philadelphia based company to auto racing, as Andy and I are also natives to the Philadelphia area."
The new racing team was unveiled at the ARCA Series banquet in Covington, Kentucky on Saturday, December 5th. Igdalsky, Belmont and ModSpace will kick off their partnership when the ARCA Series has a two-day practice session at Daytona International Speedway later this month.
The ModSpace team will run in its first race when the Lucas Oil Slick Mist ARCA 200 is presented at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, February 6, kicking off the 2010 ARCA season. Belmont also plans to announce a charity involvement for the ModSpace team at the 42nd annual Eastern Motorsport Press Association convention in Trevose, PA on January 16, 2010.
