mod rewrite to route based on a uri segment (wordpress permalink)

Question!

Wordpress Experts:

So, my wordpress instance is currently set to use friendly urls. My current rewrite rules look something like this:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

Which basically means: send everything to index.php for dispatching.

What I NEED to do, is whenever someone accesses my page /promo, I send the rest of the uri to that controller (which is a file promo.php attached to the page via Template Name: Promo) but it would still need to be piped through the index.php to do that.

In a nutshell, I want /promo/fakecompany to technically behave like this to wordpress: index.php?page=promo&fakecompany

Or even a redirect that would take the second segment of anything beyond /promo and create a querystring out of it i.e. a dynamic kind of this:

Redirect 301 /promo/fakecompany /promo/?fakecompany
Redirect 301 /promo/fakecompany/referpage /promo/?fakecompany&referpage

Is there a way to do this? Or possibly a more elegant solution? Worst comes to worse, I'm just going to have to hardcode in a redirect for the moment:

Thanks in advance.
