Executives from REV RV Group and its parent company REV Group Inc. were on hand during last week’s Elkhart RV Open House to recognize General RV as its top dealer as part of the “Race for the Winners Circle” event.
“We are very proud to have dealerships like General RV represent our products,” said Lenny Razo, vice president of sales for REV RV Group, in a press release. “Partnerships like this are why we have seen strong sales over the past several months. We are honored that General RV represents our products and congratulate them on their achievement.”
“We are proud to be the top-selling dealer for the ‘Race for the Winner’s Circle,’” stated Bob Green, director of sales for General RV. “REV RV has great products and they continue to meet the needs of our customers.”
Privately-held General RV, based in Wixom, Mich., operates 11 dealerships in Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Utah and Florida and employs nearly 1,000 people nationally.
Also on hand at the Open House to congratulate the General RV staff was Team Penske driver Helio Castroneves, a three-time Indianapolis 500 winner and REV Group ambassador.
As the winners of the “Race for the Winner’s Circle” event, General RV received a Top Dealer trophy, an autographed Team Penske racing helmet and a replica deck-lid autographed by Team Penske drivers. General RV will also receive six VIP tickets to the Ford Ecoboost 300 NASCAR Xfinity race at Homestead Miami Speedway and will have the General RV logo featured on the deck-lid of the No. 22 Team Penske Xfinity Ford Mustang during the race.
“Through our partnership with Team Penske, we have the ability to offer our dealers a unique opportunity, and an experience they won’t get anywhere else,” said Jim Jacobs, President of REV RV Group. “To be featured on a NASCAR Xfinity car during a race alongside the REV brand is very special. We are proud to be able to have General RV represented with us.”
The “Race for the Winner’s Circle” event featured three heats, or categories of dealerships. Each REV RV dealer was placed into a heat based on dealership size. Other heat winners include Funtime RV and Paul Evert’s RV. Each winner will receive VIP tickets to the Homestead race as well as a trophy and Team Penske autographed helmet.
“We are very fortunate to have a great dealer network,” mentioned Razo. “We have the best dealers in the country selling our products. Dealerships like General RV, Funtime RV and Paul Evert’s representing our brands is why we have seen great success over the past several months,” added Jacobs.
