Bay City's own Green Lawn Sprinklers has signed on to sponsor the USF1 Mendana Racing Hull piloted by Carlos Mendana for this years River Roar. When asked about the decison to sponsor a boat, owner Kyle Cochran commented "We saw a fantastic opportunity to sponsor the green boat! At Green Lawn Sprinklers, we also embrace the opportunity to help out a team at this great Bay City event. Supporting our community is one thing we strive to do."
Green Lawn Sprinklers was founded in 2005. The company now services all of the the Tri-City Area, having installed systems in Bay City, Midland, Saginaw, Essexville, Freeland, Sanford, Auburn, Kawkawlin, Munger, and Frankenmuth. When you choose Green Lawn, you are guaranteed experience and professionalism. Green Lawn is the leader in residential sprinkler systems.
Along with the new sponsor, Mendana takes on a new number for the weekend as a tribute to the late Chris Carrigan. "He was a good friend. He was there cheering me on when I won in 2013." says Carlos, "I remember helping him when he first started racing, and we've always stayed close until the end. Chris was always there with a smile on his face and a thumbs up. He was a great guy to share the pits with."
Mendana adds about the Bay City event, "He and his wife, Elaine (Rico) have always been involved with the sport since I can remember. They are great people."
Keep an eye on the water this weekend for what Cochran dubs "The Mean Green 13" as the Green Lawn Sprinklers #13 F1 takes to the waters of the Saginaw for the 29th annual Bay City River Roar!
