Endless Exposure-As our team sponsor, your brand automatically integrates into television, radio, web, print, video games, licensed products and other high-profile media outlets.
Target Markets-Finding the right team partnership will help you reach a specific demographic group, while still having the benefit of reaching the entire brand loyal NASCAR audience.
Brand recognition second to none-NASCAR team sponsorships are directly incorporated into the action. Brands are synonymous with our team. When the fans cheer for our team, they cheer for your brand also .
How do the findings in the last slide make you feel about television advertising?
At a racing event, the commercials are the race cars. When a fan watches a race, either in person or on television, they’re NOT going to:
talk to another person to avoid seeing the sponsors
get up and do something else
switch to another channel
fast-forward through the race
turn the volume down or mute it
For fans who attend a race event, even walking through the Manufacturer’s Midway is not considered commercials “to be avoided”. The Midway at a motorsports event is more like a carnival, where fans can buy merchandise, get autographs and have a good time… all the while being positively bombarded with marketing messages !
