Camping World Partnership with Talladega Superspeedway Rekindled

Marcus Lemonis, Chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam Enterprises, and Talladega Superspeedway announced that the fall NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, on Sunday, Oct. 25 at NASCAR's Most Competitive Track, will be known as the CampingWorld.com 500. Camping World is the camping and recreational vehicle enthusiast's one-stop-shop for everything they need to enjoy traveling and living in their RV. Along with over 10,000 RV parts and accessories, Camping World offers a full selection of new and used RVs for sale; RV and tow vehicle service and maintenance; collision centers; detail and refurbishment centers known as the RV Spa, technical advice from knowledgeable experts; and hard-to-find parts.

The partnership rekindles a relationship between Talladega Superspeedway and Camping World that existed from 2011-2013 when the company served as the entitlement sponsor for the fall NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Talladega. The CampingWorld.com 500 will be the anchor event of an exciting weekend (Oct. 23-25) that will also feature the fred's 250 Powered by Coca-Cola NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race. Plans are for Lemonis to serve as Grand Marshal of the CampingWorld.com 500. Many know him as the "business turnaround king" and star of CNBC's prime time reality series, The Profit, in which he lends his expertise to struggling small businesses around the country and judges businesses based on a "Three P" principle: People, Process, and Product. The new season of the show is expected to premiere later that week.

Talladega's weekend kicks off on Friday (Oct. 23) with practice sessions for both the fred's 250 Powered by Coca-Cola and the CampingWorld.com 500. Saturday's (Oct. 24) slate includes qualifying for both races, as well as the drop of the green flag for the fred's 250 Powered by Coca-Cola NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race (starting at 12:00pm/ct). The CampingWorld.com 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on Sunday, Oct. 25 (starting at 1:30 pm/ct) will be the deciding race in the NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup Contender Round in which the championship field will be cut from 12 to eight at the checkered flag.
