Ferguson Subaru Sponsors 2018 Green Country Home and Garden Show

The Green Country Home and Garden Show is a Cox Media Group, Inc. event. This three-day extravaganza will feature nearly 175 unique exhibitors from throughout Green Country and the U.S. displaying and demonstrating the newest and hottest services for home improvement/repairs, home furnishings, home security, lawn care, landscaping, gardening, remodeling, and so much more. 

Gardeners and Subaru love the beauty of the outdoors. For years Subaru has worked to protect Earth's beauty and the environment. Over a decade ago, Subaru become the first U.S. auto manufacturer to become zero-landfill, and now, in collaboration with the National Park Service and the National Parks Conservation Association, Subaru is leveraging that same environmental expertise to help the National Parks reach zero-landfill too. 

Subaru owners have a unique way of displaying their love for gardening. 'Badges of Ownership' give Subaru owners the ability to express their personal interests and hobbies, whenever they hit the road. Ask Ferguson Subaru about getting an Environment or Gardening badge for your Subaru!

WRX from Baby Driver Film Is Still Being Driven by Baby

2017's action-comedy-crime film, Baby Driver, was a smash success. The National Board of Review chose the movie as one of the top ten films of 2017. [1] The movie is set in Atlanta, Georgia and follows a young, talented driver through a myriad of heists, robberies, and daring car chases. The movie drew special attention from Subaru fans, as the young driver's get-away vehicle of choice was a red WRX. 

While it's been confirmed that there will be a sequel to Baby Driver [2], it's not know if the WRX will grace the big screen a second time. However, thanks to Ansel Elgort (the actor who plays baby) and his Twitter feed, we've learned that the Baby Driver WRX is still out there spinning its wheels, utilizing its iconic Subaru performance for some fun-filled stunts. 

On January 4th, Ansel posted a video of himself taking his WRX out for some spins, in the snow. 



It's no wonder why the directors of Baby Driver chose the Subaru WRX for the film's star get-away vehicle. Subaru WRX STI has assisted the Subaru Rally Team USA to 11 overall rally championships in the United States. Plus, the Subaru WRX is the longest-lasting turbocharged all-wheel drive vehicle in its class. Not to mention, the Subaru WRX has the largest passenger volume among all-wheel drive vehicles in its class. 

While we eagerly await the sequel to Baby Driver, discover the joys of the WRX for yourself. Take the Subaru WRX for a test-drive, at Ferguson Subaru. Ferguson Subaru is Oklahoma's number one Subaru volume dealer. We have a huge selection of WRX and WRX STi models to choose from.

Ferguson Subaru Sponsors 8th Annual Ruts N' Guts

Ferguson Subaru was honored to sponsor the 8th annual, 2017 Ruts N' Guts. 

2017 Ruts N' Guts
Ruts N' Guts is a weekend-long, professional off-road bicycling (or cyclocross) competition event. Ruts N' Guts draws cyclocross athletes from around the world, and has put Broken Arrow, Oklahoma on the map in the world of international cycling. As in years past, the 2017 Ruts N' Guts was held at Broken Arrow's Chisholm Trail Park; directly next to the Northeastern State University's Broken Arrow campus. 

Many participants and spectators, who have attended the event in the past, might have noticed something a little different to this year's Ruts N' Guts. Ferguson Subaru was proud to sponsor a Subaru VIP parking section! The special VIP parking allowed any, and all, participants and spectators, who drive a Subaru, to park on the east side of the parking lot, closest to the race registration and course. 

Subaru VIP Parking

In an effort to encourage the up-and-coming youth of cyclocross, and also to give back to the community, Ruts N' Guts works closely with the Broken Arrow Bike Club. This year, after the race, Ruts N' Guts surprised the Broken Arrow Bike Club with a special visitor. Rebecca Gross, one of our Pro Elite Women racer that participated in Ruts N' Guts, surprised students at Rhoades Elementary. She hung out with the kids, gave them tips on how to ride, talked about what it's like being a pro cyclist, and signed autographs. Watch report by KJRH [video below]. 



In our eyes, this year's Ruts N' Guts was a huge success, both by the tremendous effort of the athletes who competed, but also by the efforts of the Ruts N' Guts organizers to give back to our community. Ferguson Subaru is proud to be a sponsor of Ruts N' Guts.
