FINDING NEW FACES: Finley is featured in this week’s SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL as part of a feature on NASCAR’s Faces Of The Future. SBJ’s Tripp Mickle notes NASCAR last year “turned responsibility for its brand image over to” Finley. It wants Ogilvy to “develop a campaign that showcases the sport’s edginess and attracts not only new fans, but young new fans.” Finley said, “I think it got a little corporate. This is an edgy-authentic-crazy-heroes-from-an-outlaw brand. You have to serve that back with a younger lens.” He added, “It’s not Justin Bieber or video games. It’s in the millennial sweet spot. Good times. Crazy, exciting fun. It is going to be really amazing stuff” (SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, 2/18 issue).
