  • 10:30 AM: Races begin

Here are ways you can leverage your business and get involved in the event:

  • Prizing for athletes. Providing prizing will allow for these partners:
    • Place promo codes/flyers etc. in each of the race kits.
    • Mentions through Red Bull 400 participants newsletter
    • Entries to race in the event for staff and/clients
    • Potential logo placement on registration page
  • Activation space on-site for partners to speak to spectators and participants. In exchange we look for either value-in-kind through merch/products/apparel for each of the participants in their race kits, or for a cash fee. We are looking for activations/vendors to set-up engaging booths in their vendors area. These 10 x 10 spaces will allow vendors to:
    • Display merchandise
    • Offer services
    • Offer samples/demos.
    • You will also receive entries to the race for your staff and/or clients
    • Your logo will be displayed on the registration page
  • If a vendor has a specific concept outside of the 10 x 10 space, we would be keen to hear about it! We’re also open to any ideas you guys may have around building a partnership for this event.
