"The combination of multi-media and on-site event marketing elements have really kick started our sales efforts, putting NASCAR on FOX at the forefront of first and second quarter media plans."

In addition, the fan-viewing party includes autograph sessions with NASCAR drivers and VIP guests, a gaming lounge highlighted by Oculus Virtual Reality technology simulating NASCAR driving, a social media concierge and free giveaways for those in attendance.
