During NASCAR’s second annual West Coast Swing this March, the ideal way to experience the three-race road trip would be in an RV. Many fans are joining the fun with serious RV owners at the Good Sam 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Phoenix International Raceway on Sunday, March 13, 2016.
“We are proud to continue our tremendous relationship with Camping World and Good Sam with the Good Sam 500 next March,” said PIR President Bryan R. Sperber. “We take pride in hosting thousands of campers at every race, and with our spring race taking place during Spring Break, partnering with the world’s largest RV owners association makes perfect sense.”
Good Sam is the world’s largest organization of recreational vehicle (RV) owners and is committed to making RVing a safer and more rewarding experience for its over 1.6 million members. Founded in 1966 by Trail-R-News, a small California RV magazine, Club members originally promised to help fellow travelers on America's highways. Good Sam is a sister company of Camping World, who is the NASCAR Truck Series Sponsor and America's largest retailer of RV supplies, accessories, services and new and used RVs. Last year’s spring NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at PIR was named the CampingWorld.com 500.
“We are excited to partner with the Phoenix International Raceway for our Good Sam 500 race as this is also in celebration of our 50th anniversary of serving the outdoor and RV community,” said Marcus Lemonis, CEO and Chairman of Camping World and Good Sam and host of CNBC's The Profit. “Camping is such an integral part of the race experience for many fans, and at Good Sam, we look forward to continuing our services for many more years to come; offering preferred rates on insurance, extended warranty, roadside assistance and savings at campgrounds across the country.”
The Good Sam 500 will be the fourth race of 2016 and will take place during Spring Break for virtually every school in the state of Arizona, making it an ideal camping destination for families. Additionally, the Good Sam 500 will coincide with 2016 Major League Baseball Spring Training, giving campers the flexibility to take in a wide variety of sporting events while in the Phoenix area.
