NASCAR Pole Position Partners with Out of the Groove at Texas

NASCAR Pole Position Partners with Out of the Groove at Texas

The Campaign

The No. 1 NASCAR content creator on YouTube, Eric Estepp hosts Out of the Groove, a twice weekly talk show covering news and trending topics in the NASCAR fan community. As the top creator in the community, Eric is a major driver of the sport’s online conversation each week.

Eric utilizes his training and experience with cinematography, skits, animation, and more to dramatically raise the production value and deliver a special experience to his audience. But what keeps his audience engaged week-in and -out is his commitment to accuracy, context, and fairness even amidst the raucous, daily social media grind.

NASCAR Pole Position, the #1 Official NASCAR Publication, sent Eric to Texas Motor Speedway for the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 to give our audience, along with Out of the Groove’s 85,000 strong fanbase, premium VIP access to a full weekend of NASCAR racing.

Breakdown

Cutting edge insider access is a key brand value for NASCAR Pole Position, and Eric’s up-close-and-personal content re-affirms this. The videos are created with premium production values, again matching the branding of both partners.

The campaign was targeted at the passionate, online fanbase, and organically speaks to their concerns, priorities, and point of view. A signature of native content, the campaign would be difficult to impossible to produce without the direct support and contribution of each client, maximizing the authenticity and impact of the message.
