Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 and iHeartRadio - 5/18/19 - New High Tech Food and Drink

Rick is always on the lookout for the latest in food and drinks..

Technology now comes into play with what we put into our body. As summer approaches, here are some new offerings to consider.

Have a listen to Rick and Sully

 

1. Hope & Sesame, the world’s first plant-based line of organic sesamemilk in chocolate, vanilla, original, unsweetened original and chocolate hazelnut (think drinkable Nutella).

Sesame seeds are more sustainable than other seeds and nuts because the crop can grow in moisture or heat-stressed environments. On average, sesame seeds take about 125 days from planting to harvest, while other sources of nondairy milk, like tree nuts, take years.
Sesame is also a natural source of vital minerals and amino acids and has many health benefits from normalizing blood pressure and balancing hormones to boosting liver function and reducing vulnerability to breast and colon cancer, among others.

Hope & Sesame took 24 months of research and development to create the ideal nutritional balance, consistency and taste. We would welcome sending you some sesamemilks to try. If appropriate, we’d also welcome going a giveaway or discount for your readers.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series:

Kennesaw, Georgia-based Ultimate Tailgating will sponsor the February 23 Ultimate Tailgating 200 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

3. iRacing Gaining in Popularity
www.iracing.com

iRacing, an online simulation of the real deal each week in Nascar. The paint schemes on stock cars, the cockpit view of thick traffic, the detail of the tracks down to each tunnel turn, bridge and banking, are all so realistic it’s like watching a Nascar race from an in-car camera on broadcast TV.  

iRacing is the ultimate global racing portal. Whether you want to experience a NASCAR Cup car, a World of Outlaws Sprint car, an open-wheel IndyCar, an Australian V-8 Supercar, an IMSA Prototype or Touring Car, or the ultimate: an FIA Grand Prix car, iRacing’s online racing simulations offer them all. All you need is a computer equipped with one or more USB ports, and a digital wheel/pedal, or gamepad backed by a high-speed Internet connection. iRacing does the work for you by organizing and managing more than 40 official series, or you can choose to race in more than 400 private leagues or launch your own hosted events.
 

4. The new "NASCAR DRIVE"

Nascar Drive, a 360-degree camera feed, and communications between drivers and their crew chiefs. Nascar Drive will be available not only in the Nascar Mobile app but also on desktop and the mobile web. For the Daytona 500, fans will get the 360 view for Bubba Wallace’s No. 43 car. And with daily fantasy sports continuing to grow as an industry, Nascar has revamped its Nascar Fantasy Live game, which generated a 74 percent increase in players year over year and a 100 percent increase in total game entries.
 

5. NASCAR's New Marketing Strategy


Nascar is ushering in a new era of marketing, and not just because of the new generation of drivers. Nascar has suffered some of the largest declines across major American sports during the last two years. In 2016, Monster Energy Cup races averaged about 4.5 million viewers, but that number fell to 4.1 million viewers in 2017 and just 3.3 million viewers last year. All but a few individual races saw viewership declines, year over year.

In addition to the dropping ratings, some individual tracks have had trouble filling seats. Notably, fan favorites like Charlotte, Daytona and Richmond have torn out tens of thousands of seats to avoid mostly empty grandstands.

Despite falling viewership and attendance numbers, Nascar’s top marketers tracked its brand health through a number of key markets from 2017 to 2018, which experienced a “big bump,” according to Nascar vp of brand marketing Pete Jung. Heading into the 2019 season, Nascar plans to leverage its crop of young phenoms—who he called the greatest influx of new talent the sport may have ever seen—in its marketing, tap new technology and improve the in-person racing experience to boost fan interest in the sport.
Marketing a new generation

Nasacar faces a unique problem. When a fan’s favorite driver retires, who does the fan now root for? The racing circuit hopes to answer that by marketing its new class of rising stars.

The sport has worked with partners like 77 Ventures and VaynerMedia to create unscripted, driver-centric content for drivers to share on social media. Using their stories, Nascar “can take that creative to the next step and create a deeper dive into some of these young stars like Chase Elliot, Ryan Blaney and Bubba Wallace,” Gregory said, adding, “We use digital and social content to let fans have a chance to get to know them better and more quickly.”

Nascar also developed a 24-hour content studio in its Charlotte newsroom where video can be shot and cut whenever a driver visits.

Teaming with media agency Crossmedia, Jung said Nascar has developed a proprietary database that has allowed it to become more sophisticated in its marketing across a number of media, from national spots to strategic investments in 30 markets, as well as buys on streaming services like Pandora and Spotify. Nascar has also improved its programmatic and out-of-home buys.

As fans interact with content on digital, Nascar builds a profile that identifies the style and personality of a driver the fan might relate to. So when a driver like Tony Stewart retires, Nascar can target fans with content about Kyle Busch because they gravitate toward a driver who’s rebellious and surly.

6. NASCAR plans 2021 introduction for new Generation 7 Cup series car

Road-relevance and controlled costs are two of the targets for the next generation of NASCAR machinery.
NASCAR's new-for-2019 aerodynamic package for the existing Generation 6 cars is a bridge to the Generation 7 car.

"I think it's important to note that the reason we headed in this direction with the 2019 rules package was really to line us up for where we wanted to go in the future from a racing standpoint, both on track from a car's look and feel and then under the hood from an engine perspective," said NASCAR's executive vice president and chief racing development officer Steve O'Donnell.

"If you look at a lot of the dialogue we've had with our existing OEMs, potential OEMs, there's a lot of interest to do some things differently in terms of making the cars look even more like they do on the street, making sure that we can evolve some of our engine technology as well.

"So what we've done is spent the better part of a year putting together a Gen-7 model.

"We're in process now of going out and talking to OEMs, talking in the industry and getting their feedback on what they like and what they may want to see tweaked, but the goal for us is to roll this out fairly quickly with an accelerated timeline to 2021."

Coffee the easy way!

Cuisinart's Automatic Cold Brew Coffee Maker introduces a new way to make authentic cold brew coffee – in as little as 25 minutes! Like traditional cold brewers, the Automatic Cold Brew Coffee Maker saturates coffee grounds in cool water, never exposing them to the high temperatures that release oils, which can create an acidic taste. Cuisinart utilizes a unique spin technology to circulate coffee through water for total flavor extraction in a fraction of the time manual brewers require, meaning that coffee is naturally smoother and sweeter.

Hyundai Shopper Assurance has transformed the car buying process, providing customers with a frictionless, efficient and transparent experience.

Shopper Assurance consists of four elements that make the process of purchasing a car easier, faster and worry-free.

5. Breaking Data Usage Records in Atlanta
The newest, most state-of-the-art NFL stadium is ready to host the matchup on Super Bowl Sunday, and the expectation is that fans will once again break data usage records.
Every year the data usage numbers go up, and the same is expected at Super Bowl 53. Last year's Super Bowl 52 game between the Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles was the fifth year in a row that data usage broke records. Fans consumed 16.31 terabytes of data over Wi-Fi that year, and cell usage increased, too. There were 18.8 TB of data going over the Verizon network inside the stadium on game day last year, and AT&T reported 7.2 TB of data going over its network inside the stadium. Sprint combined numbers from both inside and immediately around the stadium, for a total of 9.7 TB on its networks during Super Bowl 52.
