The Chicagoland Speedway and Groupon will give fans a unique opportunity to experience a NASCAR weekend like no other. The track announced an exciting package early Tuesday morning called NASCAR Fantasy Camp, which will be available for the opening Chase for the Sprint Cup weekend in September.
“NASCAR fans are extremely passionate and our partnership with Chicagoland Speedway will provide unprecedented access to Groupon customers throughout the race weekend,” said Mike Shaw, head of sports partnerships and business development lead at Groupon in a release. “Our subscribers are constantly seeking new experiences through our marketplace and we’re extremely excited to feature this unique opportunity around the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.”
The exclusive package will only be available to the first 60 people that sign up. If you have always wanted to see what goes on behind the scenes of a NASCAR race, this package is more than likely for you.
“Sports fans are hungry for greater access, more exclusivity and “bucket list” experiences. In a sport that is already widely recognized for the unrivaled access it provides to fans, we are constantly looking at ways to bring our guests even closer to the action and provide even more unique experiences,” said Scott Howard, vice president of sales and marketing for Chicagoland Speedway. “We found a terrific partner in Groupon, one that shares that same desire and is well known for providing wonderful experiences and value to its customers. We couldn’t be happier to launch this Fantasy Camp Experience with them and provide fans this incredible opportunity.”
