The REV logo will soon be in the racing spotlight again, and to celebrate, REV Group and 60 VIP guests will clink cocktails in an Air Force cargo airplane, tour the pit lanes of Dover International Speedway and cheer on REV driver Joey Logano from a VIP suite that cozies up to the finish line.
As part of REV’s multi-year partnership with Team Penske, the REV logo will be featured on Logano’s No. 22 Ford Mustang during the 2 p.m. ET May 14 NASCAR XFINITY May Dover Race. The REV insignia will appear right alongside the logo of Fleetwood RV, one of REV’s iconic motor coach brands.
Here’s a look at the weekend celebrations:
The night before the race, REV Group will host a Friday night VIP dinner at the historic Air Mobility Command Museum, just 9 miles from the track. Following the cocktail reception, Team Penske drivers Joey Logano, Ryan Blaney and Brad Keselowski will join REV guests for a dinner in the airport hanger alongside the museum’s historic WWII airplanes.
The next day, it’s off to the races! REV guests will start the day with a trackside breakfast. Then it’s off to the garage for race-day tours. Before lunch, guests will meet Greg Erwin, the XFINITY Series Competition Director for Team Penske. (Erwin, who has netted plenty of NASCAR wins as a crew chief, oversees Team Penske’s No. 22 Ford Mustang.)
Saturday’s first heat of 40 laps starts at 2 p.m., followed by a 2:50 p.m. second heat (also 40 laps). Then Dover officials will wave the green flag at 3:30 p.m. for the 120-lap event. Dubbed the “Monster Mile,” Dover International Speedway is the world’s fastest 1-mile oval track with drivers turning laps at speeds up to 170 mph in less than 23 seconds. The track is also home to the Monster Monument, one of the country’s largest fiberglass structures. Standing at 46 feet tall, the monument depicts Miles the Monster holding a full-sized retired stock car in his right hand.
The VIP suite, a double-decker trailer, offers an enviable vantage of the track. Sitting infield next to the start-finish line, REV guests will have the best seat at Dover.
