That looks like one of the fictional cars from the mid-2000s era NASCAR Thunder games.

Carl Edwards was in Chase for the Cup 2005 in a Truck. "He" right-reared me out of the lead at Homestead one time because I'd done something to make him somewhat mad and he was a rival or whatever.

I got back to the lead and brake-checked him, which made the thing as red as possible.

Pitching 400 calorie fig newton four packs as healthy probably not the most vetted idea. drat they were good though.

Edit: Are we getting SRA shirts or not? I got $30 burning a hole in my pocket and I need Saturday shirts to wear to work that people will ask who the hell is SRA?

Daytona Day is a perfectly inoffensive marketing campaign and if you hate it that much you're just looking for reasons to be angry. If you want to get mad at NASCAR there's plenty of other bullshit you can focus on

How is "get excited for the biggest race of the year, here are some cool race cars. maybe have some friends over too" out of touch? Like what the gently caress is the alternative?

Like I don't disagree that NASCAR is on the whole completely off the mark with what their audience wants, that's not even a debate. But the fixation on the commercial is stupid.

So here's my question. IMSA and NASCAR are essentially two sides of the same org. How the gently caress is NASCAR so backwards and IMSA is all "Hey, the DPs are out of date, how do we refresh them and make them attractive to makers?" and pull it off in the best way possible?

I always thought "SPEEDWEEKS" was a better way of pitching that to fans, but that's just me.

I think to me it's just the fans kinda being able to channel their annoyances towards what NASCAR has become via that commercial.

Speedweeks I think is more geared at the hardcore fans, where as daytona day is supposed to draw in the more casual viewers.

Its really easy to make moves when you are not in the spotlight, basically. When you don't have to worry about pissing off a bunch of competing interests you can do the right thing.

The extreme example is F1, obviously.

I mean yeah, but I think it works in that regard.

I remember growing up and my dad watching Daytona practice/duels/shootout...whatever with the same amount of enthusiasm as he did with watching daily updates during May.

Now he finds Cup boring, sadly. .

Because they still have not realized they aren't going to recapture the casual viewers they had 10-15 years ago, and that's who this entire campaign is aimed at.

We see that, but I don't think anyone else does. Casuals would see it as "look, here's some people celebrating and people you don't know, starring James Van Der Beek." They probably thought it was a movie trailer or a Smithfield commercial.

Confusing people isn't a great way to generate buzz.

The reality where they made a Smithfield commercial with a "Daytona Day: The Movie" sketch.

Don't get so upset about our criticisms when NASCAR's the one going out of their way to do just about everything wrong.

Mehhhh. I'm adding my voice to the "Daytona Day isn't a bad campaign" opinion. The commercial during the Super Bowl even seemed fine. Drivers saying how they used to watch it was normal and non-bullshitty. "Hey, there's a car race and car races are fun have people over your house and watch it" is simple and fuuuuuck NASCAR could use some goddamn simple right now.
