New Sponsorship's Debuting In NASCAR
With the additive of sponsors like Natures Bakery and Tax Slayer(Sprint Cup Debut) joining drivers Danica Patrick and Dale Earnhardt Jr., 2 of NASCAR's most popular Drivers will have new colors with new sponsors. Nature's Bakery is joining Tax ACT at Stewart Haas Racing to be the primary sponsorship on Danica Patrick's #10 Chevrolet. Nature's Bakery, who makes Fig Bars and other health foods, will be joining NASCAR in 2016 is one of the examples of the United States Economy is getting better and more products are beginning to notice that joining NASCAR is a very good financial opportunity. Sponsor's like Tax Slayer are joining the upper ranks after being the primary sponsorship of Jr's Xfinity Series Entries for the past few years certainly showing that sponsorship movement is nothing special. Let's just say when that red and white #88 car goes around the track fans will begin to wonder what sponsor that is that has such an awesome looking paint scheme then after that they will go purchase the designated product and as of late it is showing that Americans have the money to buy the products so more and more products are making their way onto the NASCAR circuit in the Cup, Xfinity, or Truck Series.
More Loyal Sponsors In NASCAR
When you watch a race on TV or in person and you have been for many years you will begin to notice more and more sponsors are getting more and more loyal. Sponsors like K-Love Radio, Kroger, Lowes, Dr. Pepper, etc. have been with drivers for a long time. Michael McDowell, who drives the #95 Ford Fusion for Leavine Family Racing is certainly one example of a driver having a loyal sponsor. K-Love Radio has been with McDowell for many years, Through the good and through the bad times K-Love has been loyal to one driver and a fan really notices that and will certainly be more likely to listen to K-Love Radio. I am more likely to go to Lowes now days because they have been loyal to Jimmie Johnson for more that 10 years.
More Fans Attending Races
I attended the Daytona 500 this season and the stands were packed. Despite Daytona Rising entering the homestretch what was open was packed and I am proud to be a NASCAR fan especially at this time. When the racing is worth the 50 to 60 dollars a ticket is now more fans will go attend the races and that especially was proved in Daytona in July. Majority of the stands were in construction but still fans continued to file into the Daytona International Speedway and I don't see that changing anytime soon including the fact that Daytona Rising Construction will be complete come 2016. Also more tracks are making better ways for fans and their families to attend the races affordable. Talladega Superspeedway has a 2 day ticket package in both May and October that gives you 2 days of action for as low as 50$ and that is well worth it now days especially the October Race that has all of the Drama of The End Of The Contender Round. In May at Talladega the 2 day ticket includes the ARCA Racing Series along with the Cup Series and The Xfinity Series both in which have been very competitive as of late.
More People Buying Merchandise
More and more people are coming to the track and getting their favorite drivers gear or diecast and that's more revenue that NASCAR will be making. True more people are saying they dislike the new tent system that NASCAR has but give it time and they will be just as awesome as the Haulers were and they will have more to offer. My favorite thing about the NASCAR Fanatics tents is the fact that I can go to a race track now and buy Underfunded teams gear and I personally really like that. It helps get these teams exposure and helps gain them more fans.
With this it is certainly showing that more fans have money to buy these items and that shows that the economy is rising to a better place. Within the next 5 years look for NASCAR To be back to the popularity it was before.
