Read a pretty lengthy write up on the "future" of NASCAR. I'm assuming its fake news as I cannot find it anymore. I'm going to speak on what I took away from it anyway. Article stated that after strict NASCAR guidelines around '07 it was better for NASCAR to use sedan models because of demographics and advertising. Yadda yadda yadda... with last years entry of the Zl1 it became clear to them that NASCAR was a family market and not a "car enthusiast" market. In effort to change that the biggest whisper I got from said article was that it's very possible that Toyota and Ford (NASCAR'S 2 other heavy hitters aside from Chevy) are leaning toward the same move Chevy made in effort to boost sales. Sports cars. Not sedans running NASCAR events. I really enjoy the idea. However it's who fills the seats. NASCAR events can get pretty lit. But only as lit as your 40th b'day at your parents house in Hoboken. I can't imagine meshing 20,000 18-25 year old "men" with alcohol and the unlimited arguements to be had about the street models of those stock cars. Supra, big name yea. Mustang GT500, big name yea. Camaro ZL1, big name yea. Would I consider watching more because these cars may be apart of their series, nah. Will it even have any affect on a car enthusiast at all? Probably not. So here it is... why doesn't NASCAR brand it's own vehicle? A "NAS-CAR" I'm sure they get hella paid for brand representation from Ford and Chevy etc but imagine going to pick up a 2019 street version of a stock car ac, ps, comfy seat, opening door, no trunk tho! Why the hell is NASCAR worried about what cars we like if they have to be all the same? My prediction is stock car racing will be the smallest racing market in 10 years (if it's even around then) of all automotive racing. Who tf even knows the steps to take to be a stock car driver? I don't. I'm pretty sure you need shit tons of money tho. All this no prep shit roll racing in traffic etc. NASCAR doesn't understand, a 17 year old can buy a shitty 3rd gen Camaro pill it till it blows and immerse themselves into the "street culture". When tf has an 18-25 of any gender came up to you and said "you seen that race at Richmond last weekend Buttcowski killed it". No. I mean a loss of 5 million viewers is a lot. Only regularly nationally televised professional sport to do so to my knowledge. Well those are my thoughts.
