IceDiggers to don NASCAR jerseys

The Alpena IceDiggers have announced that they will be wearing special event NASCAR jerseys on Feb. 17 against the Traverse City North Stars.

The jerseys represent the affiliation that the IceDiggers have with Lafarge and the kickoff of the NASCAR season. The IceDiggers have received a tremendous amount of support from their local sponsors and this is a way to show support to one of those sponsors.

"I would like to thank the folks at Lafarge for helping us with the design of the jerseys," Alpena coach-GM Kenny Miller said. "What a great look and way for a fan to get his or her favorite players' jersey at the live auction after the game."

The special event jerseys will be auctioned off after the game with a live auctioneer. The bidding will start at $70.00 for each jersey.
