Just weeks after Blu Cigs shows up on the tech page of The New York Times, Blu Cigs AND Greensmoke are ratcheting up mainstream promotion of electronic cigarettes with each sponsoring their own car in the Coca Cola 600 NASCAR race today.
I got the photo of Greensmoke’s car from their Facebook page.
Actually, I have found 2 different sources citing the fact that Greensmoke’s driver T.J. Bell failed to qualify with his Toyota Camry car #50 at a mere 186.567 mph. That sucks! Now, the info on their NASCAR entry seems to be missing from their home page.
Despite this, Greensmoke is still celebrating Memorial day weekend with a site-wide 15% off coupon. Just type “MDay15” in the promo code area during checkout on Greensmokes’s site to get the discount.
After all, it is still memorial today and we all have a lot to celebrate and be thankful for.
Fortunately, Blu Cig’s Ford #32 driven by Mike Bliss did qualify with a speed of 186.413 mph (go figure). So, electronic cigarettes will still be getting some major mainstream attention today. This attention will probably come in the form of millions of people asking, “what in the heck is Blu Cigs?”
BTW, this photo is from the Blu Cigs website.
I am not going to write much more because I need to make a quick trip to the store for BBQ supplies before the green flag plus e-mail and tweet folks this info, but if you want to watch the race tune into Fox at 6:19 EST. If you want more info on this news check out this article which is pretty good.
Also, take advantage of Greensmoke’s Memorial Day’s 15% off promo to either stock up on cartridges or try their product out. It should be good through tomorrow (Monday) since that is actually Memorial Day. I also recommend Blu Cigs’ product, but they aren’t offering any special discounts at this time.
Finally, enjoy the photos of the cars I found and tune in to the race to watch Blu Cigs (and maybe Greensmoke?) make history by promoting electronic cigarettes through NASCAR for the first time ever.
