What size are these? Are they like business cards? Or maybe even fridge magnets?

Have you been experimenting with any other marketing that has a race car tie in?

Steve They are 4x6 photos lisa makes them on our computer and saves it to the Flash drive and then takes them to wallgreens and has them printed
for .015 cents each i give out 15 to 20 photos a night its cool becuse they take thm home and hang them up

we have a couple of car shows a year one is for our race track and there is one before the hill climb i will be going to both next year
and got some plans to advertize at the track and on the local racing web site
but now we are slowing down a bit doing sprinkler blow outs
and then we are going on a vaction

That is fantastic! I don't know how all this works but what kind of age group comes up to you and asks for them? Where do they ask for them? Is there like a pit row where everyone walks by and you can sign them and hand them out?

I am guessing the car shows are a great place to meet and greet people and hand out cards. Do you find many people that go to them are local home owners?

Steve the age group is from kids to adults of all ages.
After the races are over the fans are allowed in the pits
to meet the drivers and crews.
some have soviner progams to autograh and some
have hats or t shirts i autoghragh them all and still
give them photos.
one time i had a lady ask me if i would sign her head lite
if u know what i mean thank god lisa was 2 pit spots
over or i would not have done it .

Next year i will have a bill board on the track and we will be sponsor
some thophys

my Next thing i will be doing is this Car show and Swap meet; Colorado Springs

__________________________________________

Have you been able to do other tie ins with your race car like drive it in a parade? Or tow it in a parade and have some checkered flags waving. Then walk along side with your race jumpsuit on and hand out freebies to the kids? Maybe like small race cars! Wouldnt that be great!

Could you also put together a magnet that has upcoming race dates for the year and promotes your lawn care business on the bottom?

Do you sell shirts too? You could have them include your car graphics and your lawn care business contact information on the back. You could even do this on a hat.

Or have this kind of product for cheap that the kids could paint. It's a race car bank.

You could also print out a race car coloring page along with information that promotes your lawn care business and hand out a bunch of crayons with it to kids so they could color it in.

Do a quick google search for 'race car coloring book' and there are a ton of images like this.

You could even put on a presentation for kids at a local school where you talk to them about vehicle safety and why they should always wear their seatbelts. You could hand out coloring pages for smaller kids that point out safety features of a car and the car could of course look like yours and promote your business on the side of it.

Then the kids could get their picture take maybe next to the car? Or they could get a trading card or magnet of the car to take home.

It could be a great way to get free press coverage too.

I bet you have a blast when thinking of all the tie ins you could pull together between your racing car and your lawn care business.
