Nascar Hands Down Biggest Penalty Ever-Time To Boycott Sponsors
Lets cut right down to the bone. Nascar has what is called "The Chase For The Sprint Cup" It is the last 10 races and only the top 12 drivers during the season get to compete the rest just roll around the race track for the money and show off sponsors.
So when Clint Bowyer spun out it gave his teammate Martin Truex Jr a seed into the Chase. Now imagine your favorite team wins and makes it into the playoffs. Then 2 days later they come out and say sorry because 1 person on the team did something we are replacing your spot with someone else? Martin Truex Jr. had nothing to do with the spin out at all.
In fact from the beginning of racing it has always been known if your going for a win and you have to wreck the guy in front of you then you wreck them to win. See in the Nascar world that is completely fine.
What Nascar did was take away Martin Truex Jr's seed, fined the team $300,000, 50 championship points were taken away, 50 owners points were taken away and they suspended the general manager of the team and an executive of the team.
Now I like Ryan Newman he is a good driver. But what Nascar did was used a crystal ball and said because Clint Bowyer spun out we are taking away Martin Truex Jr's seed and giving it to Ryan Newman. Now mind you Jeff Gordon was within a point of making the chase.
Now here is the key. Ryan Newman lost his job with Stewart-Hauss Racing and now is looking for a job in Nascar. So Nascar is not only changing outcomes like wrestling. But they are also messing with sponsors of all the teams. SO I say we boycott the sponsors and show them that you cannot mess with the outcomes of any games whether it be Nascar, NFL, MLB. If you make it in the playoffs your in there is no changing the outcomes.
So here are the sponsors I will be boycotting:
Ryan Newmans-Quicken Loans
Martin Truex Jr-NAPA
Clint Bowyer- 5 Hour Energy Drinks
Richmond International Speedway-Federated Auto Parts
I will also be contacting each company and showing my displeasure with a sports category and I don't think they should sponsor in Nascar anymore.
I myself a 40 year fan will no longer watch Nascar it hit an all time low implementing the Chase and then changing outcomes. When the Chase is gone and they let racers race I willl then watch it agaiin.
P.S. We can make a difference no one should be messing with the endings and Martin Truex Jr did absolutely nothing he was in the chase. Then to get it pulled away like that is unacceptable. In the pictures you can see what I will be boycotting and it is on their firesuits as well. I have dealings in all of the sponsors so they will no longer get my business. And the Chairman of Nascar needs to be removed for allowing this to happen. Drivers settle stuff on the track not in a business suit.
