As the new title sponsor for the NFL, Hyundai is harnessing the passion of football fans in a new marketing campaign that launched just in time for the 2015 NFL Kickoff.

The all-new 2016 Tucson SUV available at Rex Perry Hyundai is featured in the first ad, “D-Gate,” a 30-second spot with a fun take on hardcore Arizona Cardinal fans and their sometimes unusual efforts to support their team. With its hands-free Smart Liftgate with additional cargo space, the Tucson is the perfect vehicle for bringing all your football celebration gear along—even an actual gate.

Hyundai also hosted the 96th season and drive toward Super Bowl 50, including festivities in New England and a concert in the San Francisco Bay Area.

“Our NFL campaign is all about conveying our love for football,” said Jacquelyn Kim, director, customer communications and promotions, Hyundai Motor America. “We want to showcase what passionate fans do #BecauseFootball, and include the role our vehicles can play in that.”

The 24th Annual Pineywoods Purgatory cycling event is happening early next month on Saturday October 3 starting at the George H. Henderson, Jr. Expo Center in Lufkin. The event will take place from 8 am to 4 pm with cycling paths winding through the Texas Forest Country.

Ranging from 25 to 102 miles, there are four rides with varying distance and terrain for every kind of cyclist. Whether you want a serious challenge or a more leisurely ride, you’ll have a great time at Pineywoods Purgatory.

The Pineywoods Purgatory event includes excellent hospitality from the folks at Angelina Expo Center, so this is more than just a day of cycling, it’s also a fun event for families and friends.

The name Pineywoods Purgatory comes from the experience of being “between the heaven of the East Texas countryside and the ‘hell’ of having one more hill to climb,” and it was invented and named by cyclist Garland “Bubba” Parise in 1992. Parise wanted Lufkin to have a big cycling event comparable to others in big Texas cities. We hope you’ll join us at Rex Perry Hyundai in supporting this important part of Lufkin’s history!
