WELCOME, N.C. (May 22, 2018) - Richard Childress Racing (RCR) and Kalahari Resorts and Conventions are once again teaming up for the third straight year for the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. Home to America's Largest Indoor Waterparks, Kalahari Resorts and Conventions will serve as the primary sponsor on Ryan Newman's No. 31 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 at Pocono Raceway on June 3. Kalahari Resorts and Conventions will also host RCR during its two NASCAR events in Pennsylvania.
"Kalahari is my daughters' favorite place to go when we are racing in Pocono," said Ryan Newman, driver of the No. 31 Kalahari Resorts and Conventions Camaro ZL1. "It is an ideal destination for families with kids of all ages to spend time together and have fun. Kalahari is a one-of-a-kind experience, and everything you could possibly want is there. I'm proud to have them back with us and providing RCR a special place to stay after a long workday at the track."
Leading up to racing in the Pocono Mountains and throughout the summer, fans and potential guests will have access to social media content on RCR's channels showcasing the Pocono Mountains resort's 220,000-sq.-ft. indoor waterpark that features 34 attractions, including a wave pool, an enhanced area for children, a lazy river and adult swim-up bars. Beyond the waterpark, the authentically African resort welcomes race fans with nearly 1,000 guest rooms, expanded dry-play activities featuring the virtual reality sensation The Arena, outdoor ropes courses, delicious on-site, full-service signature dining experiences - Double Cut Charcoal Grill and Sortino's Italian Kitchen - and the Spa Kalahari and Salon.
For those looking to work before play, Kalahari Resorts and Conventions' convention center will soon expand to boast more than 205,000 square feet of top-of-the-line and state-of-the-art workspace for business meetings and events.
"We are excited to partner with Richard Childress Racing to sponsor Ryan Newman's No. 31 Camaro ZL1 and bring the spirit of Africa to the Pocono Raceway three years in a row," said Todd Nelson, owner, Kalahari Resorts and Conventions. "We've enjoyed getting to know Ryan and his team over the years while hosting them at our resort. This partnership embodies the fun and adventurous spirit of both my family and Kalahari Resorts and Conventions."
