Zynga Poker - Las Vegas Race Advance
Race 27 of 36:
The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs begin this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This will be the first time the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series has made two trips in the same season to Las Vegas Motor Speedway, which is located about 15 miles northeast of the famous Las Vegas Strip. Zynga Poker will be the primary sponsor for the No.32 team, running a special paint scheme in America's gambling capital.
Earlier in the season, Crew Chief Randy Cox made his debut with the No.32 Go Fas Racing team at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The team won the Mobil 1 Performance Award of the race, gaining 95 positions throughout the race, and finished 22nd. The team hopes that the data and information they collected from that weekend will lead them to another great finish in Sin City.
Debuting a New Scheme:
Zynga Poker, who joined the team as a sponsor earlier this season after a viral campaign from Matt DiBenedetto and the team, will be the primary sponsor again this weekend. They will be debuting a new scheme celebrating a new multi-year partnership for Zynga Poker and the World Poker Tour®.
"Zynga Poker players are an extremely passionate group who aspire to feel like true poker champions," said Bernard Kim, President of Publishing. "Our World Poker Tour-themed tournaments enhance our free-to-play Zynga Poker social casino experience and bring the most premier name in the sport of poker directly into the player's hands. We are thrilled to invite the World Poker Tour into our virtual world to create an even more authentic and immersive experience that players will love."
DiBenedetto on racing at LVMS:
"It's been a while since we raced a mile and a half racetrack. Vegas is actually the first track I worked with [Crew Chief] Randy Cox at and we had a really good racecar. The track has a lot of character as it's aged and we end up setting the race cars up to work around the bumps in turns one and two. I have a lot of confidence going back there knowing the speed we showed earlier in the season and I hope we can do it again," DiBenedetto said.
