World’s Largest RV Dealership Partners with Largest Classic Car Show and Swap Meet
Tampa, Florida (November 18, 2015) – Lazydays, the RV Authority and world’s largest RV dealership, will once again be the presenting partner of the Annual Daytona Turkey Run, the largest combined classic car show and swap meet in the nation. This year represents the 42nd annual Turkey Run, which takes place on the infield of the Daytona International Speedway, Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 26 through Sunday, November 29.
Activities for the four-day event include more than 6,000 classic cars for show and sale, including the Turkey Run Car Corral, where would-be car sellers can park their vehicles and strike up negotiations with potential buyers walking the aisles. The event also features the massive Turkey Run Swap Meet, with more than 2,500 vendor spaces filled with auto related products.
“This event is the ideal occasion each year for many of our RV customers because many of them are also classic car lovers,” said Lazydays General Manager Ron Fleming. “Daytona’s raceway provides us an exciting weekend where people can see a huge variety of beautiful cars and top RV brands all in one place.”
Lazydays will set up an RV Show & Sale at the Daytona Turkey Run this year. Attendees will be given a chance to enjoy special savings from Lazydays running throughout the weekend. Reflecting a new focus on the trailer market, Lazydays this summer launched the full lineup of Featherlite trailers. That includes wide range of trailers for the equestrian market and the widest range of car-carrying trailers available for purchase. Featherlite is the official trailer of NASCAR and Featherlite trailers are the choice of scores of drivers and car owners.
“Lazydays is truly an industry leader in the field of recreational vehicles,” said Barbara Kelly, General Manager for Daytona Turkey Run. “This partnership was a great fit from the start. The products and services they represent complete the picture of quality that we want our guests to experience at this event.”
