FedEx Revs up the FedEx Race Time Promotion for Small Business Customers

NTDC Competition, Indianapolis

FedEx has launched the FedEx Race Time Promotion allowing eligible small business customers the opportunity to have their logo placed on the #11 FedEx car during a nationally televised NASCAR race.

Ultimately, three small business customers will have the opportunity to win a grand auction bid to have their logo placed on the #11 FedEx car driven by Denny Hamlin during the Sylvania 300 at the New Hampshire race on Sept. 19, 2010.

Leading up the grand auction, eligible FedEx small business customers will be able to earn points for shipping that can be redeemed against limited quantity items or used to bid in weekly auctions or in the grand auction scheduled to begin on July 19, 2010.
