REV IN THE WORLD OF RACING

TEAM PENSKE PARTNERSHIP CREATES COMPANY MOMENTUM

Many of REV Group’s vehicle brands have long served the racing industry – decades even. Our fire trucks and ambulance brands stand at the ready of these racing events, while REV shuttle buses transport racing fans from parking lot to grand stand and back again. Parked in these same nearby lots, many Holiday Rambler RVs have been home to the most memorable tailgating parties.

Let’s just say there’s something about a revved-up engine that tugs at our heartstrings.

To continue to nudge REV Group’s name into the racing spotlight, our company entered into a multi-year partnership with Team Penske in early February of 2016. With IndyCar bouts and NASCAR races already under our belts, these events have been key to thanking our most loyal supporters. At the same time, motor coaches under REV Group’s umbrella have attracted the attention of top drivers in the industry. Racing Team Penske chose REV to bring them to the finish line.


Here’s a look at some of 2016’s racing highlights:
 

  

APRIL 2, 2016

IN THE PHOENIX GRAND PRIX GLOW

Soon after REV Group and Team Penske Racing joined forces, REV followed Helio Castroneves – an Indy 500 star – to Phoenix, Arizona. REV was the main sponsor of Castroneves’ No. 3 Chevrolet during April 2’s VERIZON IndyCar Series Phoenix Grand Prix. In celebration of the sponsorship, REV hosted a two-day VIP event for 60 guests. Even though the REV logo didn’t make an appearance in Victory Lane, REV shared in Castroneves’ winning pole position and April Fools’ shenanigans

 

MAY 14, 2016

LET THE NASCAR RACING BEGIN

Following the Phoenix sponsorship, REV shifted gears to NASCAR racing. The REV Group logo was sported on Joey Logano’s No. 22 Ford Mustang during Ollie’s Bargain Outlet 200 NASCAR XFINITY Series race on May 14. While Logano didn’t reach the podium, he created a stir among a second batch of REV VIP guests as he crept into third place after Lap 81, before getting stuck in the low lane to finish seventh.

 
 

JULY 13, 2016

REV CELEBRATES TWO TEAM PENSKE DRIVERS

REV Group celebrated two Team Penske drivers during the Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen International — Brad Keselowski, who drove the REV-branded No. 22 Ford Mustang, and Logano, who stopped by REV’s VIP accommodations for a special meet-and-greet. Keselowski was in close contention the entire race until a broken track bar gave Logano the room he needed to secure his second straight win on the 2.45-mile road course.

 

LOOKING AHEAD …

There’s plenty more in store for REV and its brands with two more NASCAR races to look forward to (Sept. 9 at Richmond International Speedway and Nov. 19 at Homestead-Miami Speedway). At these upcoming races, REV will continue to sponsor Team Penske’s No. 22 Ford Mustang. Stay tuned! Here’s hoping we’ll see the REV logo in Victory Lane soon …
