Default GM to quit NASCAR

This may be a reality seeing as how GM will kill the Camaro in 2023. NASCAR will need to get another foreign manufacture to fill the gap. It was reported Honda was looking at the feasibility of entering ... Just another nail in that coffin ... TAZ

Maybe GM can get NASCAR to start a SUV racing division.....

As a long time NASCAR fan, in my opinion, it is unwatchable now. Bunch of teenage kids, with lots of $$ movinig in as the old names retire. Amazing how F1 stays completely relevant and popular (it seems) but NASCAR can't adapt. I get that it is a regional/US centric sport, but lot of history there

I completely quit watching NASCAR when they allowed Toyota to enter. It was an all American sport until then, and that's how it should have stayed. NASCAR can die as far as I'm concerned.

They need to go back to real cars. No, we build a car from a hood. Stupid.

I slowed watching after Earnhardt died and then really stopped altogether with the COT debacle. It wasn't really Earnhardt, but he kind of represented the old guard that called them as he saw them and wasn't so PC in his answers. Smoke was a bit like that, but you could see it fading fast. Totally boring now.

It is a complex back story:

In recent years the owners of NASCAR began to take positions in direct opposition to the belief structures of the people who supported the series all in an attempt to please the media and the socials.

The autopsy of NASCAR could read that the race was so safe since the loss of Dale that it was literally-boring to watch.

Ticket prices 25% higher then they were a decade ago.

Climate change people attacking the series for polluting the environment.

NASCAR beginning to support gun control.

Perhaps the epitaph was the media attack after staged questions were set to encourage NASCAR to protest the stars and stripes and national anthem a couple of years ago. This was a no win for NASCAR. If you are pro flag then you are polarized. If you decline the narrative then you loose again.

Media: Is NASCAR doing enough to battle: ?

Racism,

Global Warming,

Guns,

Display of the Confederate flag at the tracks -- and the list goes on and on...

If you are a potential new fan and you are likely to be worried about what people think of you than you are far less likely to participate in attending races or even watch.

Older fans took note and by changing the channel and finding other things to do rather than attend races.

The slow and painful death of NASCAR.

GM is bugging out simply because there are no detectable vehicle sale uptick or positive publicity as a result of participation in the series.
