FOR THE SECOND year, Choice Hotels International’s midscale brand Quality Inn is giving away a trip to next year’s Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona, Florida. And, once again, the lucky winners will stay at Rupesh Patel’s Quality Inn Daytona Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Choice, along with the Voice of NASCAR, Motor Racing Network, will hold the “It’s Quality Time, Race Weekend Giveaway” sweepstakes from July 1 to 31. Along with tickets to the race, the winners will receive three free nights at Patel’s hotel, as well as airfare to get there. They also will win a VIP tour of pit road and the garages at the speedway.
Contestants can enter at QualityInn.com with no purchase necessary.
“The Coke Zero Sugar 400 celebrates the rich tradition of NASCAR at one of the most historic speedways in the country,” said Larry Doyle, Quality Inn’s director of brand management. “This contest allows the Quality Inn brand to connect with one of the most loyal fan bases in sports when it comes to supporting sponsors and presents Quality Inn as a value-add brand, all while giving NASCAR fans a truly memorable experience.”
During last year’s event, the contest – and Patel’s Quality Inn – were highlighted throughout the racetrack, including Jumbotron commercials and mobile units in the UNOH Fanzone. The same promotion will occur at this year’s Coke Zero Sugar 400 on Saturday and Gander RV 400 at Pocono Raceway on July 28.
Quality Inn also will be a presenting sponsor of MRN’s interactive “Fan Vote” at races around the country. The Fan Vote features trivia and race questions that will be included in MRN’s live radio broadcasts, social media posts, on audience headsets and scanners, NASCAR.com, TuneIn Internet radio, and at the racetrack on the Jumbotrons.
The Quality Inn Daytona Speedway located across the street from the speedway and a short drive from the Kennedy Space Center, Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, and other Florida attractions. Patel’s hotel has received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and Choice Hotels’ Platinum Award in 2017.
Patel heads 3 Hospitality and is founder of SmartGuests.com, an online marketing business that teaches hotel owners how to increase guest satisfaction through personalized service and recognition as well as how to increase the number of positive online reviews on sites such as TripAdvisor and Google.
