Officially getting the green flag, Go RVing Coalition’s 2013 media buy launched on Feb. 18 with SPEED Channel airing custom vignettes featuring trackside personality Rutledge Wood during the network’s pre-Daytona 500 programming, according to a news release.
In Woods’ third series of vignettes for Go RVing, the popular NASCAR personality interviews RVers at Texas Motor Speedway about why RVs are great for family travel and are ideal for tailgating at NASCAR races. The spots will air over 500 times on SPEED throughout the racing season along with Go RVing’s television commercials.
