A sponsor is a sponsor is a sponsor, right?
I’ve asked a few guys I know who race in various series (not NASCAR) what, if anything, would be their limit on sponsorships… I always found it hilarious that the oldest guy in NASCAR drove the Viagra car. Would a big tough race car driver drive a sparkly pink Barbie car? The Tampax car? The Valtrex car? Do they really give a sh!t what’s written on the hood when they’re making money hand-over-fist?
Short answer: “No, they really don’t”:
[W]hen you get one you’re so damn lucky to have it that you don’t care if you’re driving the KY Liquibeads Hello Kitty Pocket Vibe cup car, because you’re driving a cup car.
At the very least, it ought to be slippery. Aerodynamically, I mean.
But I, for one, would love to see the Talladega Tampax 500.
Let’s hope there’s no red flag.
