Remember when Chicagoland Speedway offered to temporarily rename their track “LeBron James Speedway” if he signed with the Bulls? Well, it seems the Windy City is sticking with the car theme because Car-X Auto Service just made The King an offer that can’t be beat (except maybe at Jiffy Lube).
In what has been dubbed the “King James Version” of oil changes, Car-X is offering free — that’s, right FREE! — oil changes for life on LeBron’s Ferrari F430 Spider if he signs with the Bulls. Car-X will also donate $1 to the charity of LeBron’s choice for every premium oil change performed at their Chicago locations through July 15, 2010.
Car-X has even set up a Facebook page called “Time For a Change,” where loyal Bulls fans can urge The King to move to Chicago. Fans who sign the Facebook petition are automatically registered to win a pair of LeBron James Nike shoes.
“At the end of the day, we’re putting the ball in King James’ court,” said Rich Brayer VP of marketing at Car-X. “Do you want support from your team, support from the best basketball fans on the planet, support for your charitable foundation and support for your Ferrari with free oil changes for the rest of your life… Or do you want the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame?”
