Back in August of 2007 I was watching my favorite driver Tony Stewart win the race at Texas Motor Speedway and shooting off a gun in Victory Lane! (I’ll add the gun was not as beautiful as a Turnbull manufactured firearm.)
I immediately fired off a letter (pun intended) to the folks at Texas Motor Speedway singing praises of Turnbull Manufacturing. Along with the letter, I sent a custom made pen holder and Turnbull catalog. To my dismay, I got no response!
I shot off another package to yet another in the chain of command at Texas Motor Speedway – same sweet package with the letter, catalog and pen holder. Still no response. I have already made the decision Turnbull Manufactured Firearms need to be in victory lane, so I continue my pursuit.
Third package sent out with the same goods, but to yet another person at Texas Motor Speedway. This time I get a phone call. I was told to “stop being a pain”, and “they got the message loud and clear”. I was further informed they were under contract with another company who was providing the Victory Lane firearms. I wasn’t giving up…
I continued to send emails, letters and each newly printed Turnbull catalog as they were released to this third contact over the years. I followed up in 2009 to see if that “other vendor” still had a contract, and again to my dismay they had just renewed.
Did I mention I had already decided that Turnbull Manufactured firearms were meant to be in Victory Lane at Texas Motor Speedway? I wasn’t about to give up hope.
March 8, 2010 my phone rings… I’m getting ready to leave for a gun show in Germany and the voice on the other end of the line asked “can you help us?” I don’t think I need to tell you who that was. If you’ve seen the news and you’re a fan of ours on Facebook, then you already know that Turnbull Manufacturing is providing the Pole Trophy and Victory Lane Firearms for the 2010 racing season at Texas Motor Speedway – starting with the Samsung Mobile 500 race this weekend.
We’ll be there with these custom manufactured and custom engrave firearms. I’d love to hand Tony Stewart these 45 Colt revolvers to fire in Victory Lane!
