ANKENY, Iowa—Casey’s announced that it is partnering with Red Bull in this year’s Red Bull Soapbox Race Iowa, according to a news release. The Iowa-based retailer will announce one car as “Casey’s Hometown Racer” at the June 18 event in Des Moines.
The Casey’s Hometown Racer will recognize a vehicle that reflects the heart of its community. The criteria include vehicles with designs reflecting the city/town they are from and what the racer/team loves most about Casey’s.
“We’re excited to play a role in the race as it draws passionate racers and fans from all over and puts an exciting spotlight on Des Moines. Casey’s is rooted in local communities across 16 states, and we’re looking for hometown-themed cars that celebrate where they’re from,” said Tom Brennan, chief merchandising officer, Casey’s.
A committee will select one winning and one runner-up team, and each team member on the two teams will receive free pizza for a year in their Casey’s Rewards account.
