“Bringing Truly Hard Seltzer into the sponsorship program for the Whitcomb 5 Series only continues to elevate the series to even greater heights,” Gregg Whitcomb, owner of GW Promotional Group with his wife, Jessica, said. “We have to thank Amoskeag Beverages for their support. All of our dedicated sponsors are going to help us pay some really incredible purses to the NHSTRA Modified division at some of New Hampshire’s best short-tracks. We’re really excited to get everything going on May 1st at Monadnock. It’s been a long offseason of work by our entire team and the racing on the track can’t come soon enough.”

Amoskeag Beverages serves the entire state of New Hampshire and is the largest beverage wholesaler in the state selling over 7.5 million cases of beer and Red Bull annually. Currently employing over 300 people and servicing over 3,000 accounts, Amoskeag has a diverse portfolio of products which include suppliers MolsonCoors, Boston Beer, Constellation, Mark Anthony Brands, and Diageo Guinness USA.

“Amoskeag Beverages is excited to partner with the Whitcomb 5 Series for the 2022 season,” Mike Lianza, Marketing Director with Amoskeag Beverages, said. “Racing has a long history in New Hampshire, specifically at short-tracks, where the Whitcomb 5 Series will run. We’re excited to bring a brand like Truly directly to this part of the race community.”

The entry list for the Whitcomb 5 Series continues to grow as the events draw closer. Former NASCAR New Hampshire state champion Brian Robie, Modified standout and former Monaco Modified Tri Track Series winner Sam Rameau and multiple-time NHSTRA Modified winner and Mini Stock champion Matthew Kimball are just a few of the names on the list.

On Sunday, August 14, the Whitcomb 5 Series competitors will hit the high-banks of Hudson Speedway, while the series concludes on September 16-17, right back at Monadnock, where the champion will be crowned.
