58th season-opener less than two months away at popular Ontario Co. Fairgrounds oval
While anticipation further heightens for fans and racers anxiously awaiting Land of Legends Raceway’s 58th season of motorsports, track officials continue to partner with area businesses looking to maximize exposure both on raceday and throughout the entire year.
Track promoter Paul Cole and established businesses in the Finger Lakes region are once again joining forces to make Land of Legends THE place to be during the summer months. Support from the surrounding community is expected to result in yet another banner year for the famed fairgrounds facility as the natural chemistry between the corporate world and auto racing further solidifies with each passing season.
“We’ve already welcomed back many returning sponsors while a number of other groups will be getting their first taste of dirt track racing in the months ahead,” said Cole, noting how the avenues for increased company involvement have spanned nearly every direction in the motorsports industry with the advent of social media. “We feel LOLR offers one of the best advertising packages around and we’ll remain a leader in ’21 with our entire race schedule available to everyone for viewing at no charge.”
Continuing to provide weekly race night sponsorship, on-site signage and billboards, LOLR branded podcasts and app advertising, Cole is also pushing for strong sales of video ad space as “live” streaming of every event on Land of Legends TV will be offered FREE in 2021. On-line registration https://landoflegendstv.com/orders/customer_info for a free account is the only step to take.
While hopes remain high that COVID-19 restrictions will be loosened in the weeks ahead and fans can return to fill the grandstands, free video streaming is an added bonus to those paid in attendance. Each broadcast, available for view using Roku and Amazon Fire Stick apps, will showcase sponsorship thru commercial ads and will also be seen by fans on the infield jumbotron as well as televisions in the track VIP suites.
“We have so many opportunities for any business, big or small, to get involved with our racing program,” trumpeted Tana Robinson, LOLR Director of Marketing & Operations. “With Land of Legends TV now offering free broadcasts we’ve suddenly jumped from hundreds of die-hard pay-per-view fans to potentially providing millions of product impressions to new customers world-wide! And that paints an exciting picture for companys looking to increase name recognition as well as our racers presenting sponsorship proposals and the track itself banking on attracting new fans.”
Nightly sponsorship packages at LOLR are customized with platinum, gold and silver designations based on quantities of VIP passes and general admission tickets along with inclusion of television and/or website advertisements. Victory lane presence, VIP Tower refreshments, intermission interviews and company product display areas come standard with every titled race night promotion.
Additional corporate seating opportunities at LOLR range from gala parties in the pavilion to more discreet bleacher group gatherings, with general admission access available to all in a special reserved grandstand section. Public address announcements throughout the night recognize each company/group in attendance.
Prime backstretch, turn two track, flagstand, infield scoring tower and main grandstand billboard advertising space remains available as well as company logo linkage and name listing on the official LOLR website. Live stream commercial sponsorship on Land of Legends TV and infield video screen banner advertising continue to rank among the most highly visible assets as the speedway races on in the 21st century.
Already signed up to capitalize on further exposure through LOLR TV commercial streaming spots are Elab Smokers Boutique (scoreboard/lap counter), Lisa Johnson Real Estate Services, Mac’s Dairy Bar & Mini Golf, Schultz Heating & Cooling, Seneca Auto Sales & Service and Young Real Estate Agency, while making their own headline as division sponsors are Pepsi/Geneva Club Beverage (Big-Block), Speed Connection (Sportsman), Mike Emhof Motorsports (305 Sprint) and Lloyd’s Contracting (Hobby).
