Somebody worried about them breathing the printing ink on the masks in 3....2....1....
No lie, this is pretty funny.

I'd buy a mask, if NASCAR sells it. I think the proceeds should go to charity, just for the masks IMO. It would be a good look for the brands associated with the respected teams. Give back to those researching and such through these times.

I would gleefully spend money on a #42 Kenseth mask.

By the looks of the freshly wrapped 42 hauler, the sponsors have stayed with the team.

Remember when the race sponsor's name was announced regularly during the broadcast? "GM Goodwrench 400", etc. I'm not sure why the networks stopped but I suspect it was because they weren't getting any money. I'll bet it would be easier for tracks to sign an event sponsor if the networks would reverse that decision.

#Blacklivesmatter on Bubbas car, does this movement have a foundation that is paying for the sponsorship or is this a NASCAR sponsored effort?

This race was open for RPM. The team and Bubba collaborated on this deal to continue to spread awareness and what it means:

Pre 2001, when the tracks did their own TV deals, the event title sponsor's name was part of the deal. Once the master network TV deal was signed, they were only contractually obligated to mention the title sponsor once an hour or something like that, unless the sponsor paid extra money to the Network. I have no idea what their current obligation is, but like so many things NASCAR got totally wrong, they badly devalued race title sponsorship to kiss the butt of the networks and collect every last dollar from them instead of signing a deal that was good for EVERYBODY. (Remember when ESPN wasn't allowed to broadcast from the tracks and had to do interviews from the parking lot? Tell me how THAT helped grow the sport....) , Title event sponsorship has bounced back somewhat, but you no longer seem to have the real long term event sponsors like you once did, and I have heard that the deals are not nearly as lucrative for the tracks as they were pre-2001.

Title sponsorship of a particulat event is irrelevant to me.

Superseded by a near billion dollar TV deal. Shocking.

It's irrelevant to me too, but if you were a track selling event sponsorships based on TV mentions, it becomes a big deal. NASCAR was going to get their billions no matter who they signed with or what the contract said, but instead of making a deal that helped protect the interests of the entities that played a real role in building NASCAR to the point that they could COMMAND billions, Brian and company held out for every last single dime, and the hell with the little details. When the deal was first enacted, there was serious discussion about whether TV would even mention the car sponsors on air unless said company purchased sponsorship packages, and NASCAR actually seemed shocked and surprised that such a thing would even be considered......... Personally, I have my doubts that Brian knew what the hell he even signed.

Cigarette advertising is against the law.

Other than those guys, corporate sponsors of NASCAR, it’s singular events, racetracks, grandstand sections and its race teams have come and gone at their own pleasure, not NASCAR’s.

I understand your desire to paint everything NASCAR with a fuzzy 18” negativity roller. As is often the case, you’re out to lunch here.

Stay well ... wear your mask.

one of these days you might come up with a source(s) instead of endless attempts to deathbed. Very little credibility if any without them.

All I am doing is telling you what the topics of discussion were back in 2000 and 20001 regarding the NASCAR TV deal. All of this was openly discussed, and I pay attention to such things. If you weren't around, weren't paying attention, or simply don't remember is not my fault.
