Long Pond, PA (July 21, 2011) – Good Sam, the world’s largest RV owners community, and Pocono International Raceway, announced the sponsorship of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR Camping World Series races at Pocono Raceway on August 6-7 , 2011. The Sprint Cup Series event will be titled the Good Sam RV Insurance 500 and the Camping World Truck Series event will be titled the Good Sam RV Emergency Road Service 125.
“We are proud to partner with the Pocono Raceway for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and NASCAR Sprint Cup races,” said Marcus Lemonis, Chairman and CEO of Camping World & Good Sam. “This is a great opportunity to sponsor the race weekend and to expose race goers to our broad selection of camping and tailgating products, which will be available at the Raceway at our on-site Camping World stores.”
Founded in 1966, the Good Sam Club is loosely-based on the biblical Good Samaritan who offered to help a traveler in need. Good Sam’s now-iconic halo and wide grin still signify camaraderie among members and their willingness to offer aid to fellow RVers. Today, the Good Sam Club is offering benefits such as 10 percent discounts at thousands of Good Sam Parks nationwide. The Good Sam Parks are inspected and rated annually according to an exclusive Triple Rating System to ensure each park is clean, safe and comfortable plus meeting quality standards. The Good Sam Club also offers savings on RV insurance, road service, accessories, repairs, RV publications and more. New additional benefits are free camping certificates, the Golden Halo Savings program and additional Good Sam Parks across the country.
Membership in the Good Sam includes: guaranteed savings and discounts; fun, fellowship and VIP treatment; support, help and advocacy when you need it; and indispensable tools and resources. The discounts alone more than pay for your membership and the Good Sam Club satisfaction guarantee covers everything else included in your membership: the travel tools, technical tips, member forums, Highways magazine and all the perks that enhance your RV experience; making it safer, more practical and easier. Good Sam RV Emergency Road Service is the best value on the market today and the Good Sam RV Insurance is the most comprehensive RV insurance available and is designed for RVs, not autos.
“It is an honor and a privilege for Pocono Raceway to partner with Good Sam, the industry leader when it comes to RV products and services,” said Brandon Igdalsky, President, Pocono Raceway. “The RV locations at the track will be filled with Good Sam members. Our race fans will also have the availability to see new camping and tailgating products.”
