“Nags Head is a neat coastal town with a lot of character, and the athletes and families that come to participate with the EVP Tour are going to be excited when the news gets out about this partnership,” commented Tour President Ross Balling. “Every time I mention Outer Banks to friends and family, they rave about how many people they know love to travel there for summer fun.”
