No. 12 Alltel Dodge makes a pit stop in Kingsport on Friday

Timesnews.net staff report • Apr 26, 2007 at 12:00 AM

This week, Kingsport race fans will have a chance to get up close and personal with an authentic race car and test their skills with interactive pit crew challenges.

Alltel Wireless, America’s largest network, today announced that a replica of the No. 12 Alltel Dodge, driven by Ryan Newman, will make a pit stop from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday at the Alltel retail store at 1653 East Stone Drive in Kingsport, Tenn.

For the ultimate pit crew experience, fans can grab an air gun and demo the interactive tire changer on an actual quarter panel of the No. 12 Alltel Dodge Charger. There, fans can clock their speed in changing a tire and compare it to the 13-second pit stops routinely recorded by the Alltel Race team. Gas can kiosks will also be available for those who wish to test their skills on video game units featuring Ryan Newman’s signature racing game.

“Our show car experience provides a unique opportunity to bring the Alltel Racing program to the fans in their own communities,” said Samira Zebian, director sponsorship marketing for Alltel Wireless. “Despite their distance to a track, attendees will get a hands-on look at stock car racing complete with a team pit box and memorabilia. Plus, they can preview Alltel’s latest products and services, navigate the alltelracing.com website, and take home prizes to commemorate their experience.”
