Captain Morgan Adding Some Spice To HALLOW-DEGA
Talladega Superspeedway is proud to announce that Captain Morgan Rum has been named presenting sponsor of HALLOW-DEGA ℠ weekend this upcoming October.
“Captain Morgan and HALLOW-DEGA are a perfect match for each other,” said Talladega Superspeedway President Rick Humphrey. “Race weekends at Talladega are known to be a little fiery from time to time, so it’s fitting that Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum would help present the first Halloween weekend at Talladega. We look forward to hosting an event without peer for HALLOW-DEGA ℠ Presented by Captain Morgan.”
“Captain Morgan and Halloween are synonymous with fun and a great party, and there is no better venue to have that party than on the grounds of Talladega,” said Tom Herbst, Marketing Director of Rum for Diageo North America. “ Echoing the Calling All Captains television campaign the Captain will be looking among the masses for folks dressed up as Captain Improv, Captain Showstopper or maybe Captain Keymaster, the latter reinforcing the message to not drink and drive.”
