1000Bulbs.com to Sponsor NASCAR Driver David Ragan in Phoenix
1000Bulbs.com has partnered with Front Row Motorsports as the primary sponsor of David Ragan’s No. 38 Ford race car. The branded car is set to debut at Phoenix International Raceway on November 12th for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. The partnership announcement closely follows the launch of the first 1000Bulbs.com television ad campaign now broadcasting across the U.S. The ecommerce retailer offers Christmas lights, commercial fixtures, and LED lighting, selling nearly half a million dollars a day in lighting products.
“Sponsoring David is a great opportunity to reach customers beyond our online presence,” explains Kim Pedersen, CEO of 1000Bulbs.com. “I started 1000Bulbs.com out of my garage, and we’re now the leader in T8 LED tube sales in North America. David has a promising career in NASCAR. This is us taking a moment to sponsor someone else’s dream and show our fun side to our current customers. We’ll have a team in Phoenix cheering him on.”
David Ragan started his NASCAR career at 18, running Camping World Truck and XFINITY series events. In 2007, he became the driver of the No. 6 Ford in what is now called the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup series. That year he won Rookie of the Year in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. Ragan has had 2 career wins each at the Monster Energy Series and the XFINITY Series. He’s finished in the top five an additional 32 times. In 2013, he earned the first ever win for Front Row Motorsports at Talladega Speedway with a last-lap surge to the finish line resulting in a surprise victory.
"This is a perfect opportunity for 1000Bulbs.com to get their name in front of a new audience and drive some traffic to their website," Ragan said. "Everybody uses lighting, and NASCAR fans are always very supportive of our partners. If fans check out 1000Bulbs.com and talk with the good customer service folks, I'm sure they'll keep going back."
