Calgary, Canada & Chicago, USA—September 29, 2011—Poynt Corporation (TSX-V: PYN) (“Poynt Corp.” or the “Company”), a global leader in mobile local search and advertising, and Rick Ware Racing (“RWR”) today announced the Company’s flagship application, Poynt (“Poynt” or the “App”) will be the official sponsor of Jeffrey Earnhardt for the Talladega Superspeedway Camping World Truck Series entry in October.
Earnhardt will be driving the Poynt branded NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chevy in the October 22, 2011 Camping World Truck Series event at the Talladega Superspeedway, AL in the Coca-Cola 250 presented by Fred’s Super Dollar. The race will be broadcast at 3:30pm ET on SPEED in the United States and on Speed Network in Canada.
“The Earnhardt name is synonymous with NASCAR,” said Margaret Glover-Campbell, SVP Marketing and Public Relations. “This is a fantastic opportunity to expand Poynt’s sponsorship within the RWR family, especially given the Earnhardt name has become a brand of its own. We are eager to see RWR and Poynt further grow together as Talladega approaches.”
“We are very excited to have Poynt on the truck with Jeffrey Earnhardt at Talladega,” stated owner Rick Ware. “Their organization strives on being #1 and it is only fitting to have Jeffrey pilot the #1 truck at a track that both Jeffrey and the fans love so much.”
Added Ware, “Poynt has been a lifesaver to our team when we’ve put in a long day on the road between cities and need to find nearby gas, a place to eat or a hotel for the night.”
