Companies utilize Pokemon Go to increase business

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Pokemon GO fanatics are in luck because the Autobahn Indoor Speedway is making the game a little more interesting.

Players can now receive a $2 discount off of a single race, Monday-Friday, when they show staff what Pokemon Go team they're in, according to Sean Maher, director of sales and marketing.

Autobahn Indoor Speedway emphasized that there will not be any Pokemon catching allowed on the racetrack.

This promotion will last until the end of July.

Autobahn isn't the only business to incorporate the popular app into their operations.

The Oasis Hookah Lounge, located at 663 S. Highland, will host a "Pokemon Go and Chill Night" on Wednesday, July 25, from 6-10 p.m.

This was previously hosted on July 20, and it offered some pretty good deals.

Included were three lure modules for three hours, hookah specials, and a Pokemon capture contest.

Oasis also gave out free one-year memberships to the first 20 visitors that showed staff their Pokedex.

The same promotions will be presented on Wednesday.
