Pataskala, Ohio (21 March 2019) – Supporting local business has long been a key priority for Meyer Shank Racing (MSR), and that well-established belief continues as the team has partnered with Ohio-based, RCD RV Supercenter for the 2019 season.
For over a decade, MSR has been a successful staple in sports car racing, and has grown racing operations with an NTT IndyCar campaign that first took to the track in 2017.
Team Owner Mike Shank has created several personal relationships with local businesses that have been critical to the growth of Meyer Shank Racing. Rocky Fork Co., Roberts Service Group and CAP & Associates have grown in parallel with MSR as partners.
Now, Meyer Shank Racing is excited to welcome RCD RV Supercenter to the growing list of Ohio-based businesses that are utilizing the MSR racing operations as part of their marketing activation programs.
Located just 3.6-miles from the MSR HQ in Pataskala, Ohio, RCD RV Supercenter was first established in the 1974, moving from sales of trucks, used cars, and line equipment into a full focus on the RV market. That approach has seen the RCD RV Supercenter grow to become one of Ohio’s largest RV dealers.
Despite its growth, RCD has always remained a family owned and operated business, now with the Haire family’s third generation taking over.
With similar values in hand, Meyer Shank Racing and RCD are hoping to see this mutually beneficial partnership grow over the course of the 2019 race season.
“RCD RV Supercenter is excited to partner with profession, local business as it is always great to support and work with local companies,” said Owner/Parnter, Ryan Haire. “We believe MSR has the same business ethics and family traditions that exists in RCD RV. This partnership also allows us to promote our RV’s both sales and service to the racing fan, which is in turn a RV’er!”
With many IMSA and IndyCar event weekends attracting campers from all around the country – like Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and Road America – MSR and RCD are hoping to cater to those dedicated camping race fans.
“Helping out local business has always been something that is important to me,” said Shank. “Many of our local partners have been with us for ten plus years. I’m very excited about this partnership with RCD RV Supercenter. They are located just down the road from the shop and I have known the Haire family personally. I’m glad that they can come aboard and be a part of the MSR family.”
