WELCOME, NC--Richard Childress Racing (RCR) and Kalahari Resorts and Conventions have renewed their partnership for the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. Now home to America’s Largest Indoor Waterpark, Kalahari Resorts will once again serve as the primary sponsor on Ryan Newman’s No. 31 Chevrolet SS at Pocono Raceway on June 11, 2017, as well as host RCR during its two stops on the Series schedule in Pennsylvania.
The partnership launched earlier today when Newman unveiled the 2017 Kalahari Resorts and Conventions Chevrolet on the RCR Facebook page, engaging with race fans and providing details on how they can take advantage of exclusive room rates and promotions happening during the Pocono race weekend June 10-11.
“Kalahari is my daughters’ favorite place to go when we are racing in Pocono,” said Ryan Newman, driver of the No. 31 Kalahari Resorts and Conventions Chevrolet. “It is an ideal destination for families of all ages to spend time together and have fun. Kalahari is a one-of-a-kind experience, and everything you could possibly want is there. I’m proud to have them back with us and providing RCR a great place to stay when our time at the track is completed.”
Leading up to racing in the Pocono Mountains, fans and potential guests will have access to social media content showcasing the expanded 220,000-sq.-ft. indoor waterpark that now features 34 attractions, including a wavepool, an enhanced area for children, an extended lazy river and adult swim-up bars.
Beyond the waterpark, the resort recently opened an additional 520 rooms and suites, providing nearly 1,000 on-site accommodations to easily welcome race fans and teams. The authentically African resort added two new full-service signature dining experiences — Double Cut Charcoal Grill and Sortino’s Italian Kitchen and expanded dry-play and fitness amenities. Its 100,000-sq.-ft. Convention Center remains a top-of-the-line and state-of-the art facility for business meetings and events.
“We are excited to partner with Richard Childress Racing to sponsor Ryan Newman’s No. 31 Chevrolet to bring the spirit of Africa to the Pocono Raceway two years in a row,” said Todd Nelson, owner, Kalahari Resorts and Conventions. “We’ve enjoyed getting to know Ryan and his team over the years while hosting them at our resort, and Ryan embodies the fun and adventurous spirit of both my family and the resorts.”
