Marriott Timeshares Align With NASCAR

Not to say, “I told you so”, but we all love it when we make predictions that prove to be correct.

This past April, in a blog post titled, Are NASCAR Fans Making Use of Timeshare Vacation Property? I told readers in the Timeshare Owners Blog that Super 8 ® Motels, part of Wyndham Worldwide Resorts and timeshares, had signed an agreement with Petty Enterprises. Super 8 was becoming the official lodging partner and associate sponsor of Bobby Labonte’s car. My prediction was that other timeshare companies could soon be paying attention to the large and ever-growing NASCAR fan base as a market.

So it is with some smugness that I share with you the new deal between Marriott Vacation Club and Roush Fenway Racing. The number 99 car, driven by Carl Edwards, unveiled its new look, sporting Marriott Vacation Club’s colors, this past week during the Sylvania 300 at the New Hampshire International Speedway.

According to Paddock Talk, Vice President of Corporate Affairs and Brand Awareness for Marriott Vacation Club International, Ed Kinney says, “We’re excited about this unique opportunity to sponsor Carl in Roush Fenway Racing’s No. 99 Ford Fusion. With Carl’s personality and performance, we couldn’t ask for a better fit to represent Marriott Vacation Club, our owners and the millions of fans and viewers who are looking for a great way to vacation.”

The remainder of the NASCAR season is short—only nine more races. Take advantage of a timeshare resale or a timeshare rental to put you close to all the action.

Timeshares and NASCAR are good pairing
