“These races feature the best of the best and finalize the 2013 standings,” said Dave Morse, CEO of LBT. “LBT is proud to be partnered with NASCAR, DJ and Timmy in this weekend’s races at Homestead. Many NASCAR fans now have the ability to locate their cars, boats, RV’s, ATV’s and people that they love with the touch of a button from anywhere and at any time,” he added.
Race events including practice and qualifying laps will feature the PocketFinder vehicles and will be televised on ESPN and FOX Sports 1, as well as broadcast live on MRN radio and Sirius satellite channel #90.
“This weekend we are excited to again feature PocketFinder to NASCAR fans in our continued awareness campaign.
