Things have come full circle for REV Group at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Earlier this year, REV took over the track for a massive 14-vehicle photo and video shoot, and now it will cap off the 2016 racing season with back-to-back NASCAR championship races at the 1.5-mile oval speedway.
REV Group and 100 VIP guests will root on Team Penske driver Ryan Blaney and the No. 22 REV-branded Ford Mustang during the EcoBoost 300 on Saturday, Nov. 19 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Although Team Penske didn’t make the 2016 NASCAR XFINITY Chase Grid for the elimination-style playoff title, REV hopes for one last shot to see its logo in Victory Lane this 2016 season with a EcoBoost 300 win. (Blaney will roll to the Miami track in his REV-branded American Coach Eagle luxury motorhome, customized for him in May.)
On Sunday, Nov. 20, 60 REV VIP guests will watch the Race for the Cup during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship race, which follows the same chase format. Team Penske’s Joey Logano advanced to the Championship Round of the Chase, keeping Roger Penske’s hopes of capping off Team Penske’s 50-year anniversary with a Sprint Cup title. Many media outlets are ticking off a long list of reasons “why Logano will win the Sprint Cup championship,” including the fact that he’s coming off a Nov. 13 win in Phoenix, and in five victories, he’s notched two victories, plus a second-, third- and ninth-place finish. That’s an average finish of 3.2 in five races. And since REV Group sponsored Logano’s No. 22 Ford Mustang during select 2016 NASCAR XFINITY races, we’ll definitely be rooting for our “REV teammate.”
REV Group will kick off its VIP weekend with Friday night cocktails and dinner on the SeaFair, a megayacht event venue. Guests will enjoy views of the Miami skyline as the 228-foot-long yacht charters through the Biscayne Bay. Saturday’s guests will watch the race from The Tavern, REV’s own private in-field accommodations complete with lounge setup and Florida-inspired food. Sunday’s guests will be treated to a pre-race concert with The Band Perry at the start-finish line before enjoying the race from REV’s Turn 2 hospitality accommodations, featuring a barbecue smoker menu. During both race days, guests will enjoy garage tours, meet-and-greets and even a friendly guest-participation pit challenge.
Also outside of Turn 2, REV Recreation Group will showcase a 186’x150’ motorhome product display, featuring nine 2017 motor coaches, available for private showings for NASCAR drivers, driver spouses, crew chiefs and luxury RV owners. The display will also feature a one-of-a-kind 3D experience that allows prospects to customize their dream motorhome.
And speaking of dream motorhome experiences, Team Penske awarded a lucky fan with an all-inclusive race weekend experience. As part of Team Penske’s #REVItUpInMiami social media sweepstakes, the winner rolled to the track in the same REV RV that racing legend Emerson Fittipaldi had used during the 2016 season.
