Overdrive Interactive, a Boston-based full service search engine marketing and online media buying agency specializing in lead generation, brand building and customer acquisition, today announced that it had been selected by the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the “Racing Capital of the West” according to Sports Illustrated, as its online media partner to promote the NASCAR Sprint Cup Weekend. LVMS contains more than a dozen different racing venues and hosts many big events, including Sprint Cup Weekend. Overdrive was retained to help LVMS open and widen its online marketing and ticket sales channels.
Situated right in Las Vegas, the Speedway epitomizes the fun and excitement of the city that never sleeps. Featuring a 1.5-mile Superspeedway, The Bullring, a dirt track, go-carts, a state-of-the-art dragway and more, LVMS is constantly abuzz with activity.
LVMS assembles one of the strongest groups of NASCAR headliners under one marquee, including Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Kurt Busch, Rusty Wallace, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and more. This group now invades Vegas every year to raise entertainment to a new level for spectators.
With Overdrive’s solid strategic and creative expertise added to its marketing arsenal, LVMS will certainly be able to increase ticket sales and awareness for the Speedway and hopefully get a second NASCAR race added to its roster of events!
