Ford EcoBoost 400 Winner to Receive Contender Boat Outfitted with Guy Harvey Seascape Design
MIAMI, FL—NOVEMBER 12, 2012— Homestead-Miami Speedway is again giving away a uniquely South Florida “trophy” to its NASCAR Sprint Cup Series EcoBoost 400 race winner. It’s a Bay Boat, equipped with a 250-horsepower, 4-stoke Yamaha engine, built by Homestead-based Contender Boats.
New for 2012 is that marine wildlife artist and conservationist, Dr. Guy Harvey has designed a wrap for the boat that features checkered flags, sailfish and marlin. All 43 drivers in the Ford EcoBoost 400 field will have a chance to win the prize boat.
“Our relationship with Contender Boats started in 2011, and now includes another natural in Guy Harvey,” said Homestead-Miami Speedway President Matthew Becherer. “It’s fantastic to bring together these two iconic and uniquely South Florida entities that have collaborated to design and outfit this one-of-a-kind boat for our race winner.
In addition to the design for the boat wrap, Dr. Harvey and Homestead-Miami Speedway are teaming up for other fan elements:
* Dr. Harvey has designed the cover of the official Ford Championship Weekend program, which will be on sale at the track during race weekend.
* Dr. Harvey has also designed commemorative posters and t-shirts that will be for sale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, both during the race and beyond. Proceeds from the sales of the t-shirts will be donated to the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation and Homestead-Miami Speedway’s Driving for a Cause Foundation.
* South Floridians and out-of-town guests in for the race will be able to enjoy NASCAR stock cars that include Guy Harvey Custom Wraps.
“We’ve long believed that our fans and NASCAR fans share a passion or the outdoors,” said Dr. Harvey. “We know our message of marine conservation and sustainable fisheries will find a receptive audience within NASCAR’s ranks.”
