Start your engines! It’s “green flag” time for the Roland Race Experience Challenge, a new contest sponsored by Roland DGA Corp.
Now through July 31, Roland wrap businesses across the U.S. and Canada can enter to win an incredible grand prize package that includes: an all-expense paid trip for two to Charlotte, N.C. to tour the Richard Childress Racing (RCR) Campus and Graphics Center, entry into top motorsports events scheduled for Oct. 12 and 13 in Charlotte, access to the RCR hospitality suite throughout the events, an autographed photo with an RCR driver and more.
To enter, interested Roland vehicle graphics customers simply need to visit the Roland Restyling “Born to Wrap” Facebook page at www.facebook.com/restyling and provide a brief testimonial (150 words or less) on how Roland equipment has helped their wrap business thrive. The entrant with the most compelling story, as judged by the experts at Roland and RCR, will win the race experience of a lifetime. The contest winner will be announced August 6 at the Roland DGA website and Facebook page.
“We are proud to be an official sponsor of Richard Childress Racing and look forward to sharing all the excitement of pro racing with our contest winner,” said Rick Scrimger, vice president of sales and marketing for Roland DGA Corp. “RCR headquarters epitomizes the spirit of the sport, bringing together the world’s fastest cars with legendary competitors and cutting-edge technologies, including a host of Roland printers, all in a beautiful setting that includes the Richard Childress Racing Museum and Childress Vineyards, an award-winning winery owned by Richard Childress.”
“We are excited to give the winner an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at everything we do to prep for a race,” said Nick Woodward, graphics manager for the RCR Graphics Center. “As fellow wrap professionals, we know just how involved and demanding this business can be. Roland and RCR make a great team.”
To keep RCR cars and trucks looking their best, the Richard Childress Racing Graphics Center relies on four Roland eco-solvent wide-format printers, including a 64-inch VersaCAMM VS-640 metallic inkjet printer/cutter, and three SOLJET models, a 54-inch XC-540 printer/cutter, a 64-inch XJ-640 printer and a 54-inch XC-540MT metallic inkjet printer/cutter.
The RCR Graphics Center also produces a variety of signage and event graphics for pit boxes and other high profile areas around the track, as well as for Childress Vineyards. To produce these graphics, the shop operates two Roland VersaUV LED printers, including a 64-inch LEJ-640 hybrid roll-to-roll flatbed printer which prints directly onto boards and other thick media, and a 30-inch LEC-330 inkjet printer/cutter. Both feature ECO-UV inks in CMYK, white and clear, for premium results, including custom varnishing and embossing effects.
