August 20, 2018 Austin Theriault and Bangor Savings Bank /Buoy Local to Unveil Oxford 250 Partnership and Paint Scheme

2017 ARCA Racing Series champion Austin Theriault has partnered with Bangor Savings Bank and Buoy Local, to attempt to qualify for his sixth appearance in the Clark’s Scrap Metals Oxford 250 on Sunday, August 26. Theriault will join with Bangor Savings Bank’s leadership team and employees to unveil this year’s paint scheme at the organization’s new waterfront headquarters located at 24 Hamlin Way (formerly 20 South Street) in Bangor on Thursday, August 23, 2018, at 10 a.m.

"We are excited to have Austin wave the colors of Bangor Savings Bank and Buoy Local. Austin has been an incredible partner over the years, and we look forward to seeing the No. 57 on the track at this year’s Oxford 250,” said Bangor Savings Bank’s President and CEO Bob Montgomery-Rice.

Theriault’s No. 57 will feature Bangor Savings Bank’s Buoy Local Program. Buoy Local makes it easy to shop locally and support communities by being accepted only at participating locally owned shops, restaurants and businesses across Maine. With the new Buoy Local Mobile App and Linked Buoy Local Card, cardholders receive great offers from local businesses, earn and redeem points, view card balance and transaction history, and locate the nearest participating businesses to you – all from the palm of your hand.

Buoy Local exemplifies Bangor Savings Bank’s commitment to connecting commerce and community throughout Maine. Bangor Savings Bank customers can pick up a Buoy Local card at all Bangor Savings Bank locations across Maine.

“I want to thank Bangor Savings Bank and the Buoy Local Team for coming on board to support my bid to race in the Clark’s Scrap Metals Oxford 250. I’m looking forward to representing the Buoy Local program and all that it does to build Maine’s local economies,” said Theriault.

With three podium finishes in Maine’s premier short track race, Theriault is still in pursuit of his first Oxford 250 win. Theriault’s last Oxford 250 appearance was 2016. The race will be Theriault’s second Maine race of the 2018 season, in July he returned to his home track Spud Speedway in Caribou for the Pro All Stars Series’ Aroostook Savings and Loan Firecracker 200, but a mechanical issue ended his run early. Theriault has been working on his car to prepare for his return to Oxford Plains Speedway. Additional sponsors include Cross Insurance, Daigle Oil Company and Saucier and Son Trucking, Inc.
