Customers Enjoy a Day at the Track
Dealers: Bryson Sales and Service, Bird Bus Sales, Cardinal Bus Sales, Girardin Ontario, Hoover Truck and Bus Centers, Brightbill Body Works and Yancey Bus Sales and Service
To show their customers appreciation, dealers from Bryson Sales and Service, Bird Bus Sales, Cardinal Bus Sales, Girardin Ontario, Hoover Truck and Bus Centers, Brightbill Body Works and Yancey Bus Sales and Service treated attendees to a day on the track. Customers representing 23 different school districts attended one of two days of events at the Michigan International Speedway (MIS), complete with a spin around the racetrack in a Roush Stage 3 Mustang.
“The partnership between us, Blue Bird and ROUSH CleanTech is one for the record books,” said Eric Arnold, Yancey Bus vice president and general manager. “It is through our combined efforts, from manufacture through sales and customer support, that we are able to make propane school bus adoption more prevalent in our state.”
The dealers invited all current propane and gasoline school bus customers to MIS for a customer appreciation day. The morning began with a meet and greet in the Roush Suite where, for the two days, more than 50 people from 23 different school districts attended. Together, these districts operate over 750 propane school buses and about 70 gasoline buses.
After receiving an overview, each day the guests were escorted trackside and given the opportunity ride around the track in a Roush Mustang. Professional drivers were on site to drive guests in official pace cars, too. Following the rides, the group enjoyed lunch and toured the garage.
“The track day appreciation event held by Roush CleanTech was an event that I really enjoyed,” said Buddy Gilliard, director of transportation for Coffee County Schools. “The staff at Roush CleanTech are top notch people and the day at Michigan Speedway driving the Mustang by Roush Performance was an experience that was just awesome!”
The dealers worked with Blue Bird and ROUSH CleanTech to make this day a success. If you have an idea for a customer appreciation event, contact your ROUSH CleanTech alt fuels sales rep.
