A local family will debut the NASCAR truck they sponsor in the American Ethanol 200 at Iowa Speedway Saturday, July 14, 2012.

The #97 truck is sponsored by Adrian Carriers and Liz Girl Logistics of Milan, Illinois.

Driver Jeff Choquette, of Palm Beach, Florida, will be at the wheel.

Choquette won four out of his first five races with the Adrian Carriers Racing Team in the Super Late Model Challenge Series.  Choquette and the team celebrated in victory lane at Iowa Speedway in August 2011. 

The Adrian Carriers Racing team has been based in Milan since it started in 1996. 

“All of the members of the Adrian Carriers Racing Team spend their days working full-time jobs, but when it comes to the evenings and weekends it is all about racing, and this weekend will be no different. Come on out and cheer on Jeff Choquette and the entire Adrian Carriers Racing Team for the American Ethanol 200 at Iowa Speedway!” said a spokesperson for the team.
