Innovative Foto’s BlabaBooth is off to the races with Japanese professional stock car racing driver Akinori Ogata for the upcoming Crayon 200 in the NASCAR 2022 Xfinity Race Series in New Hampshire on July 16th, 2022. The unique partnership is the first for photo booth manufacturer, Innovative Foto and its BlabaBooth line of cutting-edge photo booths.
“I couldn’t be more excited to partner with BlabaBooth for the upcoming Crayon 200,” said Ogata. “As someone who enjoys collecting and looking back on old photos, having the opportunity to race with a company that prints cherished moments into lifelong keepsakes is truly something special.”
Ogata and BlabaBooth are teaming up with MBM Motorsports, a NASCAR Xfinity Series racing team based out of Statesville, NC. Carl Long, Managing Partner of MBM Motorsports, addressed the unique partnership with BlabaBooth. “NASCAR, plain and simple, is an advertising platform. We use fast cars and a TV fan-based sport to promote these items. BlabaBooth fits our NASCAR fan base perfectly. Akinori Ogata has a unique driver story to even get to this level of competition. I first worked with Akinori on a late model car 8 years ago, and we have developed a friendship and racing respect for each other. I’m proud to have him behind the wheel of the MBM #13 at the Crayon 200.”
BlabaBooth captures unforgettable memories with its cutting-edge photo booth technology across 1,650 booths in the United States. With BlabaBooth technology, customers can access photos and videos of their photo booth experience online to share with family and friends. Customers can also transform their photos into a physical memento like a keychain or mug.
Ogata’s No. 13 Toyota Supra will don a new colorful wrap featuring bright blues, pinks and purples juxtaposed against the classic photo strip the world has come to know and love.
The 2022 race marks Ogata’s third appearance in the NASCAR Xfinity Race Series—an effort to help Ogata achieve his goal of becoming the first Japanese NASCAR driver to compete in the renowned Daytona 500 in Daytona Beach, FL.
