Matrix System Automotive Finishes is now one of the
co-sponsors for Tri-star Motorsports and drivers Angela and Amber Cope
during the 2011 Nationwide Series.
Angela and Amber are the third generation of Cope’s to enter into the
world of racing, when, at the young age of nine, the girls’ parents gave
them a go-kart for Christmas, which began their road to NASCAR. The
Cope sisters have already made history this year by becoming the first
twins to ever race in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.
This weekend in Chicago, Angela will be the one strapping on her helmet
to race in the No. 44 red Chevrolet Impala. Not far from her twin will
be Amber, who will assist the effort by being a spotter for Angela.
Angela is excited about competing this weekend as she wants to improve
her finishing time and show the world exactly what she can do as a
serious NASCAR driver and competitor. “It’s all about opportunity and
then learning from those opportunities," stated Cope. "This will be our
first time on a 1.5-mile track. We plan to make the race, get in laps
and continue to grow as a team.”
Commenting on the sponsorship, Cope added, “First, I want to thank
everyone at Matrix System for stepping up and believing in us and our
program. I am proud to help promote Matrix System and show off our paint
scheme at each and every race.”
Matrix System Automotive Finishes, based in Walled Lake, Mich., is a
leading manufacturer of high-quality color, clearcoats, primers,
hardeners, and reducers.
“We are excited about teaming up and helping to support Tri-Star
Motorsports the Cope Twins," said Dave Brunori, executive vice
president/general manager of Matrix System Automotive Finishes. "Our
relationship with the Cope Twins started at the end of last year and has
grown into one based on trust and commitment.”
