With the season opening NHRA Amalie Motor Oil Gatornationals set for March 9-12, the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series Rookie of the Year Camrie Caruso will be teaming up with Hotel ELEO at the University of Florida, Gainesville’s premier upscale hotel, to get all the rest and relaxation she will need to capture her first professional Pro Stock win. Caruso, who qualified No. 7 and raced to the quarterfinals last year at her first Gatornationals, will be promoting Hotel ELEO through a variety of social media activations as well as a meet and greet event at Hotel ELEO’s Covey Kitchen + Cocktails. Hotel ELEO will also be branded on Caruso’s 210 mph Chevrolet Camaro Pro Stock race car during the event.
“I am always looking for interesting places to stay and explore as we travel across the country and Hotel ELEO jumped out at me as an innovative, stylish and upscale hotel,” said Camrie Caruso, a third generation drag racer. “It is convenient to the track and local attractions, shops and restaurants. Hotel ELEO will be the perfect place to stay, rest up and then come back to hopefully celebrate my first win.”
Hotel ELEO’s partnership with Camrie Caruso will offer fans and guests a chance to meet the 2022 Rookie of the Year at a special event at Covey Kitchen + Cocktails, the hotel’s restaurant. The event, set for Thursday, March 9, at 5 p.m. will include Caruso’s title sponsor the ultra-premium Tequila Comisario, the most awarded brand in the entire tequila category.
