PASADENA, Caliornia — Family-owned dealer Rusnak Auto Group has been in business for 52 years, so it has built many long-term relationships. Satisfied customers are about to be rewarded through Rusnak's first Driver's Challenge VIP driving event at Santa Anita Park, to which a select list will be invited.
"We've hosted lots of track days and test-drive events over the years," Marketing Director Quincy Armstrong told Edmunds. "But this is the first event of this size and scope with over 300 guests driving 30-plus different models in six different categories."
Each participant gets to drive at least three different vehicles on the half-mile racetrack, doing two laps in each vehicle with a professional driving instructor or a Rusnak salesperson. Then they will be asked to give feedback, after which each driver gets a certificate and some gifts.
Among the vehicles are midsize sedans including the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4, large sedans including the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Volvo S80, luxury cars including the Maserati Quattroporte and Jaguar XJ, and SUVs such as the Porsche Macan and the Range Rover Sport. The sports car category should be popular; it includes the Mercedes-Benz SL550, Porsche 911 and Audi RS 5, among others.
Edmunds says: It's a good time to be a customer of this multi-brand dealer.
