Press Pass' April NASCAR release, Press Pass Premium, will bring all of the excitement of NASCAR to collectors: roaring engines, four-wide racing, and...the crack of a bat? This spring, Press Pass is combining the heart-pounding excitement of NASCAR with America's pastime in an exciting baseball-themed promotion.
For the first time ever, Press Pass will be offering redemptions for team-signed official major league baseballs from NASCAR's top drivers and teams including Hendrick Motorsports, Joe Gibbs Racing, Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sebates, and Roush Fenway Racing. "I would venture to say that there aren't too many NASCAR fans, or baseball fans for that matter, that have a baseball signed by Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jimmie Johnson," said Tom Farrell, Director of Marketing for Press Pass. "What we're offering is a truly unique collectible that any collector would love to add to their collection."
In addition to team-signed baseballs, Press Pass Premium also includes a baseball-themed subset featuring NASCAR's top drivers enjoying America's pastime. "When we had our annual photo shoot in Daytona this year, we handed the drivers a glove or a bat, and their eyes lit up. It was a natural fit, and I think they enjoyed being ball players for a few minutes" Farrell said. Premium's "Opening Day" subset will feature photos of NASCAR's All-Stars in baseball motive donning bats and gloves.
