When Lazydays’ sales expert Bill McVey returns to the paddock of the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on March 27, he will be promoting a different product. As one of the race’s original founders, instead of negotiating television and racing contracts, greeting celebrities and making deals with city officials, amidst the revving engines and aircraft-like cars, McVey will be showing off the Entegra Anthem and Dynamax DX3 luxury motorhomes on racers’ alley.
McVey followed racing, worked as a salesman, and owned a car dealership before getting behind the wheel to win his first race at the Tri-City Corvette Club – Two Miles of Sebring on May 31, 1970. McVey still attends the race, even though he is no longer involved.
“I feel proud,” he said. “I feel like it’s a legacy. It helped turn the corner on people seeing what beauty the city has. Last year I walked around and thought ‘This was my idea and my dream.’ And I feel grateful for those that helped get us there.
