Kroger customers in Mount Gilead were offered a free Monster Energy drink when they went shopping Wednesday. Michelle Mann of Chicago and Daniel Gonzalez of Texas were with the Monster display that included a stand for drinks as well as a NASCAR auto and semi that hauled everything.
Gonzalez said they are following the Nationwide NASCAR series tour and they are stopping at Kroger stores that are located near racetracks that are part of the Nationwide tour. Nationwide is sponsoring the tour and Monster Energy is a sponsor for the cars.
Gonzalez added that Sam Hornish Jr. will race at Mid-Ohio over the weekend.
The driver for the car at Krogers is Kevin Bush of LasVegas. Bush will be racing Tuesday.
Ken and Michelle Taylor were some of many who stopped by to admire the car at Krogers and try a Monster drink. Michelle said they the were especially interested since they have a ‘70 Superbird Roadrunner.
