Trump wins NASCAR

by on March 7, 2016

Trumpmania has hit the sports world. And it presents a dilemma for groups trying to expand their fan bases.

On Monday, Nascar chairman Brian France endorsed Donald Trump for president at a rally ahead of Super Tuesday. France appeared on stage alongside Trump with four drivers also supporting the candidate: Hall of Famer Bill Elliott; his son, Chase; David Ragan; and Ryan Newman.

Nascar was quick to clarify that the endorsement was not an official position, but rather a “private personal decision by Brian,” but you’d have to be fairly gullible to believe that.

France’s grandfather, Bill France, Sr., founded Nascar, and Brian France remains the corporate face of the sport. The Frances are known as the “First Family of Nascar,” and are nearly synonymous with the organization. Moreover, the presence of Nascar drivers past and present seems to bolster the implication made by Trump himself that the support came from the entire “Nascar brand.”–golf-s-turn-to-decide-25518.html?utm_source=PW+Subscribers&utm_campaign=b88e96857a-PWN_PW_News_030716&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_1899ce8517-b88e96857a-232394917
