PlanetOne's agents, suppliers and guests took to the high-speed racetrack in official Legends race cars, which are 5/8-scale replicas of 1930's and 1940's automobiles powered by motorcycle engines. Agent Chris Terrell of Telecom Management Services called the experience "exhilarating."
PlanetOne CEO Ted Schuman got into character for the event sporting a Wonder® bread racing suit like the one worn by actor Will Ferrell in the hit comedy "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby."
Of course, it wasn't all screeching tires and exhaust fumes. Attendees were also treated to special appearances and seminars from industry leaders. Executives from Earthlink Business, Ernest Communications, InContact, Windstream and XO Communications were on hand to share their insights from the podium. The festivities also included an all-American feast and open bar.
"This is the first event we've done at the racetrack and it certainly won't be our last," said Schuman. "All of the excitement and positive feedback - it exceeded our expectations tenfold and we're ready to do it all again."
"I have been to many channel partner events with other Master Agents, but I have never had more fun than I did today," said Craig Pierce of Tri-Solve. "I was able to meet some people to help me grow my business and I got to check something off my 'Bucket List.'"
The next stop on the 2012 Telecom Tour is Nov. 6-7 in PlanetOne's home town of Scottsdale for Hangover in Arizona Part II.
