Revving up for NASCAR

Many Walmart shoppers happen to be NASCAR fans, so it makes sense that the retailer would host exclusive events around big races in key markets.

In Charlotte, N.C., and Dover, Del., select Walmart stores will offer customers the chance to check out racing simulator machines and stock car displays and enjoy special driver appearances throughout the month of May.

"We've found that nearly nine out of 10 NASCAR fans chose to shop at Walmart(i)," said John Jones, Walmart market manager. "We wanted to provide Charlotte  [and Dover] race fans with unique Race Time experiences and unbelievable savings on NASCAR merchandise that you can only find at Walmart."
