O'FALLON, Mo. -- The National Guard American Drag Racing League's (ADRL's) mark on social media for race fans has grown by leaps and tweets!
The National Guard ADRL re-launched its Official ADRL Fan Page on Facebook last week (www.facebook.com/ADRLFanPage) and the ADRL community was quick to get into the action. Additionally the National Guard ADRL set up two new Twitter pages (www.twitter.com/ADRLKenny and www.twitter.com/ADRLFanPage).
Several thousand new members joined the groups within the first few days, during which a flurry of activity followed, including live Twitter coverage from the Arabian Drag Racing League in Qatar by Kenny Nowling, president and CEO of both the Arabian Drag Racing League and the American Drag Racing League.
Fans also have begun posting pictures, personal stories and making plans for the 2010 season. News updates, special offers, giveaways, and behind-the-scenes photos and video will be part of the long list of activities the National Guard ADRL plans for members and followers in December.
"We are excited about this becoming a very active club," National Guard ADRL Director of Business Development Brian Evans said. "We look for all of our fans to join the page, then go through and suggest it to their friends."
Evans also pointed out the plans for fresh content, contests and announcements will continue to satisfy both new and dedicated National Guard ADRL fans, and encourages the community to continue to engage in discussions and forums, post pictures, network with members and keep the activity level high.
The National Guard ADRL team will use this page as a communication tool to connect and strengthen the ADRL community, but ADRL Director of Media and Communications Amanda LaPlante sees a larger purpose.
"Everyone here at the National Guard ADRL dreams of making drag racing one of the mainstream sports and a bigger part of American sports culture-hence, the complimentary ticket programs! Making this one of the largest, most active and engaged fan pages on Facebook strengthens our appeal for media coverage and sponsor support, and introduces the sport to a vast array of new fans."
