RV General Store in Newcastle, Oklahoma, has just completed a fun promotion during the Oklahoma City Fall RV Show, which ran from Oct. 13-16 in Oklahoma City.
Because of the strategic partnership with Texas Motor Speedway and the Speedway Club at TMS, RV General Store brought in the show car display for reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Kyle Busch.
The No. 18 M&M’s car is one of the most recognizable cars in all of NASCAR. The car and its corresponding track simulator served as a draw to not only bring people into the display but to keep them there, according to a press release. Customers were able to take laps on the simulator and look at the authentic, race-used racecar.
Customers also were able to enter a drawing for tickets to the upcoming November race weekend which includes pre-race pit passes for each of the truck, Xfinity and Cup races. The promotion served its purpose as the Oklahoma City Fall RV Show had another record year.
