Ollie’s Bargain Outlet Named ‘Title Sponsor’ of Nationwide race
Ollie’s Bargain Outlet, one of America’s largest discount retailers, is pleased to expand its relationship with NASCAR and start a new partnership with Michigan International Speedway as the title sponsor of the Nationwide Series race on June 14: the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet 250.
“We are excited to announce Ollie’s Bargain Outlet as sponsor of the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at MIS in June,” track President Roger Curtis said. “Ollie’s Bargain Outlet is growing their presence in the region and this partnership provides them with a great opportunity to reach our fans and grow ‘Ollie’s Army,’ as their loyal customers are known.”
As title sponsor and supporter of NASCAR, Ollie’s Bargain Outlet is bringing its motto of “Good Stuff Cheap” to NASCAR’s fastest track. Ollie’s is offering fans a $20 Ollie’s Bargain Outlet 250 ticket – a 50% savings – for the race on Saturday, June 14. But fans need to act fast as this offer is only available Friday, June 6 – Sunday, June 8 on the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet website: www.ollies.us.
“Ollie’s is thrilled to sponsor the June Nationwide race at Michigan International Speedway,” said Ollie’s Bargain Outlet President and CEO Mark Butler. “Some of our best customers are loyal NASCAR fans and we also want to share our brand with other folks who may not have discovered Ollie’s yet. We’re equally excited that fans will be able to purchase discount tickets this weekend to join us at the June 14th race, courtesy of Ollie’s. That’s our business – bringing you Good Stuff Cheap!”
