Richmond International Raceway Partners with Elephant Auto Insurance for Two Fan Sweepstakes
Elephant Becomes Presenting Sponsor for Ultimate Fan Access Weekend and Your Seat in Vegas Sweepstakes
Richmond International Raceway (Richmond) and Elephant Auto Insurance (Elephant) have partnered to bring fans two chances to win unique NASCAR experiences. The partnership furthers Richmond’s commitment to bringing fans exclusive opportunities to see the sport they love in a different light.
The Ultimate Fan Access Weekend allows a lucky fan and a guest to experience all a NASCAR weekend at Richmond has to offer. Fans can enter to win two grandstand tickets to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup race, garage access, pace car ride, pre-race ceremony and driver introductions access, Gatorade Victory Lane access, hotel accommodations for the weekend, and a $100 VISA gift card. This sweepstakes is everything fans crave the most and is available to enter prior to the September race weekend.
The Your Seat in Vegas sweepstakes is a trip for two to Las Vegas to see how NASCAR celebrates a champion. The winner will join the Richmond team in Las Vegas for NASCAR’s 2017 Champions Week. The prize includes two tickets to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series banquet, two tickets to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Awards fan reception, two tickets to NASCAR After the Lap, two tickets to the NMPA Myers Brothers Awards Luncheon, roundtrip airfare for two, hotel accommodations, and a $500 VISA gift card. This sweepstakes will be available to enter during the Richmond September NASCAR weekend.
“We pride ourselves on providing unique experiences for fans, and now with Elephant’s help we have taken that to the next level,” said Richmond President Dennis Bickmeier. “By giving once-in-a-lifetime chances to our fans we are rewarding their dedication and passion for the sport. We thank Elephant Auto Insurance for coming on board to offer these incredible sweepstakes.”
Richmond is home to Elephant’s U.S. headquarters, which makes this partnership a true Richmond experience. Elephant is a wholly owned subsidiary of Admiral Group, plc, which has 20 years of experience in auto insurance and nearly two million policies worldwide. As part of the Admiral Group, Elephant shares in their commitment to provide reliable coverage and excellent service at affordable rates.
