Here comes Wal-mart!

(1/1)

Can you believe it has taken Walmart this long to sponsor a Sprint Cup automobile?  Forget the fact that Bill Elliot is returning to the Sprint Cup for one race ó the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona in July ó and focus on the important stuff here.  Throughout the years, we have seen advertisements for kitty litter, dog food, Viagra,  and Butt Paste plastered on the side of stock cars, but never the legendary Walmart?  That is just absurd.

Elliot will be driving the No. 50 car, which represents the 50th anniversary of the opening of Walmart.  Shame on them for waiting 50 years to acknowledge the fact that the clothes being worn by about 97 percent of the spectators in the stands at any given race were purchased at Walmart.  The beers they all brought to the race? Walmart. The convenient cooler they are allowed to stash under their seats that holds about a dozen beers? Walmart.  Walmart, Walmart, Walmart. Welcome to the 21st century.  Itís about time.

They dont need SPONSORSHIP help....Walmart SELLS itself, especially to NASCAR fans.

I think Wal-Mart has had a presence in NASCAR for quite a while.  Something like one of the retailing partners or something.  I think they also "presented" a couple races the last few years. 

Come on, do you really think Wal-Mart is going to spend the millions of dollars required for a full year of sponsorship?

It's not about selling its brand, it's a tax write-off.
