Igloo was kind enough to send me one of their NASCAR-branded Playmate coolers. I was sent the NASCAR-branded model. Due to the COVID-19 lockdowns, I have not had an opportunity to use the cooler yet. But I was impressed with its construction and ease of access. As the photos show, the cooler is brightly-colored and eye-catching. It’s supposed to be able to hold nine (9) standard size cans of your beverage of choice. I have owned an Igloo Playmate cooler for more than 35 years, and it has kept many a can of soda cold at the races. I recommend these to any racing fan who wants to show their NASCAR loyalty at the track, or at the family picnic.
The original press release follows.
Today, Igloo and NASCAR® announced the debut of five NASCAR-branded Playmate coolers. Featuring custom artwork inspired by drivers, cars and Daytona International Speedway — launching with the DAYTONA 500 and the start of the 2021 season — this special-edition Playmate series licensed by NASCAR is available on February 14 at igloocoolers.com/nascar.
“Teaming up with NASCAR has been the ride of a lifetime,” said Brian Garofalow, Chief Marketing Officer at Igloo. “Seeing thousands of our coolers used at tailgating events of every race tells us our fans are NASCAR fans, which makes it so exciting to give them a product they will love! With a variety of NASCAR-centric designs, we know these Playmates will get off to a fast start, especially with the much-anticipated DAYTONA 500.”
Designed with true NASCAR fans in mind, each of the five new Playmate Pal coolers — with capacity for up to nine 12-ounce cans — features custom artwork on the classic tent top. The starting lineup includes: The NASCAR Stock Car Evolution Playmate Pal which depicts the iconic NASCAR logo and how racing vehicles have changed over the years; the NASCAR Daytona International Speedway Playmate Pal that pays tribute to the legendary track that has hosted the season-opening race of the NASCAR Cup Series since 1982; and the Driver Series of Playmate Pal coolers inspired by the fire suits (complete with sponsor logos, car number and signature) worn by champion drivers Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott and Kevin Harvick.
All five Playmate Pal coolers within this special-edition collection licensed by NASCAR are available on February 14 for $39.99 each, while supplies last.

Born from a modest metalworking shop back in 1947, Igloo has been instrumental in redefining how we live, work and play. What began with bringing clean water to the worksite quickly moved into super-functional, best-in-class ice chests. Igloo products made the family outdoor recreation movement of the 20th century possible. Suddenly, taking your kids camping on the weekend became easy and cross-country road trips became a summer vacation staple.
As we approach our next century, Igloo is 1,200 employees strong. We are proud to call—a 1.8-million-square-foot, three-building facility in—Katy, Texas home. With more than 500 products sold at thousands of retailers around the globe, we can confidently call ourselves the number one cooler manufacturer in the world.
And through it all we haven’t lost sight of our original goal—to create products that enable the pursuit of happiness (however you define it). That’s why we’re still working hard every day to innovate, create and make it easier for you to get out, work hard and play even harder.
