WSLM and John Jones Auto Group are partnering to give you the opportunity to get you into the race and will be sending a lucky race fan to Daytona for the start of the 2014 NASCAR season.
Tickets will be awarded to one lucky winner on Friday, Feb. 7 at 10a at the Salem John Jones Auto Group location. The winner will receive two tickets to the NASCAR Nationwide Series DRIVE4COPD 300 race on Saturday, Feb. 22 and two tickets to the Daytona 500 Sprint Cup Race on Sunday, Feb. 23.
John Jones Auto Group customers can enter at any John Jones location around Southern Indiana – Salem, Corydon, Scottsburg, Greenville- or go to wslmradio.com/contests and sign up there.
“We’re very excited to be partnering with WSLM to provide tickets to someone in the Kentuckiana area,” said Elaine Davis, Marketing Director at John Jones Auto Group. “We’re a proud sponsor of NASCAR and INDY Car racing on WSLM and look forward to providing additional giveaways the rest of the season with WSLM.”
Last year, WSLM gave away tickets to the Kentucky Speedway races, as well as the Brickyard 400 in Indianapolis and races in Michigan and Chicagoland.
“We have developed a great relationship with NASCAR and our race broadcasting affiliates of MRN and PRN and will be partnering to give away more tickets to more tracks this year,” said station owner Rebecca White. “WSLM was once considered the Racing Station of the Nation. At one time we worked very closely with local and regional tracks and even had our own WSLM Racing team.”
WSLM has moved deeper into the racing action the past few years by becoming the only radio station in the Louisville market to carry all divisions of NASCAR – Nationwide, Grand Am and Sprint Cup as well as a selection of Indy Car races.
“WSLM has had a long relationship with the Indianapolis 500,” said White. “Dad use to fly his plane up to the race and take clients there. Now I get to go and be part of the activities involved there. It was so fun to visit with AJ Foyt and Mario Andretti last year during practices at the track.”
WSLM 97.9 FM will be broadcasting the races on Feb. 22 and 23 as well as special programming during Speed week, including interviews with Kenny Wallace and Daytona Speedway President, Joie Chitwood.
“We’re not only thrilled to bring NASCAR back to the airwaves of Southern Indiana and online at wslmradio.com,” said White. “We’re the only station around streaming all the NASCAR events.”
