NASCAR is so out of the touch with the average nascar fan lol pushing for the new fans which aren’t guaranteed while also pushing away the old fans that were almost guaranteed is a hell of a business decision lol
I have said it a million times, @NASCAR has completely forgotten their fan base, we dont want to hear that shit, why are we constantly ignored? Maybe some Jason Aldean, Luke Combs, or wait!!! You cant afford decent music? WTF NASCAR
And Machine Gun Kelly’s no stranger to NASCAR, having attended races in the past in California. But you’ve got to admit, it seems like a strange fit for the NASCAR fanbase.
Of course NASCAR isn’t bringing in these names for their current fanbase: They’re doing it in hopes of reaching new fans. But that seems like a bold strategy, because I’m not sure how many people are going to tune in or buy a ticket based on a 5-minute performance from Machine Gun Kelly during the race.
And last year, NASCAR seemed to garner plenty of excitement with their lineup of names like Miranda Lambert and Charley Crockett, both names that would seem to more closely align with their fanbase, during the Chicago street race weekend. (Of course those performances were ultimately canceled due to weather).
Either way, it’s clear that NASCAR has an eye towards attracting new, younger fans to the sport – and fans aren’t confident that it’s a winning strategy.
