CAISSE SIGNS WITH ANDY SANTERRE MOTORSPORTS FOR '06
#44 Team Will Have Support From GRIZCO Racing
ASM Motorsports in partnership with GRIZCO Racing announced today that they have made an agreement with 2005 Busch East Series, Grand National Division Rookie-of-the-Year Sean Caisse to campaign the No. 44 Chevrolet’s throughout the 2006 Busch East season. Casella Waste Systems of Rutland, VT has signed on as primary sponsor.
Caisse will begin his duties as the ASM Motorsports/GRIZCO Racing driver for the first time at RACEARAMA on Saturday, March 4th when he participates in the annual Busch East Series autograph session from 2-4 p.m.
“I’m excited to be behind a program that Andy Santerre and GRIZCO are heading up,” said Caisse. “Andy is the pinnacle of what a racecar driver should be, and I can’t wait to get the season started!”
For more information on Sean Caisse or Andy Santerre Motorsports, please call (704) 455 - 6665.
Caisse made his mark in the highly competitive NASCAR Busch East Series last year with an impressive two Busch Pole Awards, seven top-10 and two top-five finishes. The 19-year-old hotshoe backed up his rookie season performance with a win in one of two qualifying races for the coveted Toyota All-Star Showdown at Irwindale Speedway in November.
“I see a lot of potential in Sean Caisse,” said ASM Motorsports owner Andy Santerre. “He really proved himself last year on a variety of tracks. He’s a determined racer, and we’re ready to get behind him to bring him to the next level. He certainly has raised the bar for incoming rookies with his performance last season, and I’m certain the competitors will have a tough time keeping him out of victory lane this year.”
Casella Waste Systems, who sponsored Caisse part of last year, will follow the young driver to ASM Motorsports/GRIZCO Racing as the primary sponsor.
“I am pleased to welcome a new and exciting sponsor to the Busch East Series,” said Steve Griswold of GRIZCO Racing. “Casella represents a significant find of new support as well as a vote of confidence in our series.”
