SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES


SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES ADVERTISING AND PROMOTIONS Team sponsors can incorporate their sponsorships into their general marketing programs. Promotions, sweepstakes and targeted communications all enable team sponsors to attract NASCAR fans (and nonfans alike) in exciting new ways.

SHOW CARS Bring cars to retail locations, charity events and other points of consumer contact provide team sponsors with a way to connect with consumers by creating a “special occasion” for fans to take notice of team sponsorships.

ALTERNATE PAINT SCHEMES Primary team sponsors leverage their promotions, sweepstakes, line extensions and other marketing initiatives through the use of alternate paint schemes.

VICTORY LANE When your driver wins a race, Victory Lane puts team sponsors in an exclusive spotlight, giving sponsor brands valuable added exposure and prestige.

SPECIAL PAINT SCHEMES Special paint schemes replace a primary team sponsor’s scheme for individual events. These schemes provide primary-level exposure for associate team sponsors, movie promotions or other short-term marketing programs.

LICENSING OPPORTUNITIES NASCAR licensed products are a powerful way to reach consumers, giving them additional chances to show their loyalty and interact with brands. Product categories include die-cast collectibles, apparel and many others. BUSINESS-TO--BUSINESS When companies become team sponsors, they gain privileged status as a part of the NASCAR community. This creates a number of business-to-business opportunities to build relationships and goodwill among employees, suppliers, distributors, retailers and others, and can lead to increased business that can strengthen ROI for sponsors.

LOCAL IN-MARKET PROGRAMS When NASCAR events come to each market, they create added opportunities for team sponsors to interact with consumers and leverage the excitement of the event. DRIVER APPEARANCES Drivers are powerful spokespeople for NASCAR team sponsors, providing accessible personalities to share brand messages. Everywhere they go, drivers serve as ambassadors for team sponsor brands as they interact with consumers. DRIVER ENDORSEMENTS Consumers recognize NASCAR drivers and equate them to their sponsor’s brands, making them some of the most effective endorsers in marketing.


PLACEMENT OPTIONS
