NASCAR Is The New Formula 1

That title will INFURIATE some NASCAR fans, but hear me out, Cletus.

NETFLIX just dropped two episodes of their five-part series on the 2023 Cup Series Championship and it is fucking AWESOME. And the reason NASCAR agreed to give NETFLIX an all-access pass last year is they are hoping this series will do for them what NETFLIX’s Formula 1: Drive To Survive docuseries did for Formula 1.

That series… Which I believe is entering into Season 5… Has done more for motorsports than the Fast & Furious franchise.  The same franchise that introduced me to Gal Gadot for the first time…

And then a second time…

For which I say…

Full disclosure… I never watched that F1 show but I have watched a couple of F1 races and I think they absolutely STINK compared to the product NASCAR puts out with its Truck, Xfinity, and Cup Series every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from mid-Feb until early November. 

And that’s not showing a blatant bias against open-wheel racing.  There's a guy who knows a LOT more than me about Motorsports who once said…

(Shoutout Dale and Chase)

But I didn’t come here to shit on F1. I came here to recommend you watch NETFLIX’s brand-fucking-new NASCAR: Full Speed and to also extend an invite to drink with me, Spider, and a handful of Barstool content creators on Saturday and Sunday at Daytona in two weeks. 

First, Saturday…

NASCAR is hosting a Barstool Sports Tailgate in the Midway on Saturday, February 17. Highlighted by a Live Show hosted by me, Spider, KFC, Feitelberg, Frankie, Joey, Pat, and a couple of drivers TBD. 

Tickets are $59 and the “VIP Experience” includes:

  • General Admission to Saturday’s Race 
  • Exclusive Access to the VIP Barstool Tailgate during the Live Show
  • Exclusive Meet & Greet with the Barstool “talent”
  • Custom branded NASCAR x Barstool t-shirt that I designed

The space will be intimate so a limited number of VIP packages are available.

You can get yours here…

Now onto Sunday…

Barstool's weekly NASCAR podcast Rubbin’ Is Racing returns for Season 2 next week, and our presenting sponsor, Cabo Wabo, has a package available for you and 9 of your closest friends to get tix to the big (sold out) race and a boozy bus ride to and from the track with me and Spider. 

Enter to win HERE using the code "cabowabo".

So that’s it… NETFLIX has a hot new show out about NASCAR. Spider and I are jumping back into Rubbin’ next week. And there are plenty of options to hang with us at Daytona in 2 weeks thanks to NASCAR and its official tequila partner, Cabo Wabo. 

Gentlemen (and ladies), start your fucking engines!

Take a report.
