The Hashtag 500
BRAND / COMPANY:
NASCAR has millions of passionate fans, but interest in the sport is declining.
At The Daytona 500, the Super Bowl of motor sports, we let fans everywhere experience the thrill of racing, straight from their phones. From the green flag to the checkered flag to tires, helmets, and metal freshly bent in a crash, we let fans race on Twitter to win drivers’ real gear in real time.
The Hashtag 500 resulted in a three-fold increase in social conversation compared to last year’s Daytona 500. It generated over 100,000 tweets, with each Twitter race gaining 10,000+ engagements.
