TicketGuardian Extends Sponsorship Run at NASCAR Phoenix Event, Hosts Fan Attending His 55th Running of the Race
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. - Mar. 1, 2019 - TicketGuardian, a Protecht company, is now in its second year as title sponsor of the TicketGuardian 500 NASCAR Weekend to be held Mar. 8-10, 2019, at ISM Raceway in Phoenix. TicketGuardian is the leading insurtech company for live events and recently announced partnerships with Tickets.com and Paciolan.
The March 10 "TicketGuardian FanShield Package" includes FanShield protection on a grandstand ticket. These packages start at $52.33. Fans will also have a chance to win a ticket to next years race in a contest at the TicketGuardian photo trailer in the fan zone.
TicketGuardian is launching its new FanStories series at this years event. The first of these began through a connection on Twitter between Larry Ogburn and TicketGuardian. Ogburn is a diehard NASCAR fan who will be attending his 55th running of the race. He saw Twitter posts from TicketGuardian about its pride in being associated with the race, and he reached out to share his own enthusiasm.
Ogburn will be TicketGuardians special guest for the race in recognition of his decades-long devotion to auto racing. He will receive all-access passes to the TicketGuardian suite, the pit area and victory lane; a hot lap in the pace car; plus a commemorative "Larry 55 Years" embroidered cap, a shirt and a lanyard courtesy of TicketGuardian. Goodfellas Merch of Glendale, Ariz., was chosen by TicketGuardian as its merchandise partner for this event.
