DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA - FEBRUARY 15: Tyler Reddick, driver of the #8 3CHI Chevrolet, drives during practice for the NASCAR Cup Series 64th Annual Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway on February 15, 2022 in Daytona Beach, Florida. (Photo by Jared C. Tilton/Getty Images)

The Daytona 500 is this weekend and  I was watching some of the practice runs and I found myself wondering – what is that? The drivers names I recognize, but some of the sponsors on the NASCAR cars left me wondering, “what is that?”. So I had to think, I can’t be the only one. So this year when you’re watching the race and you see a purple #99 car you can say “Oh yeah, that’s a bar in Nashville”. Everyone will think you’re a genius. And when you see the #8 3CHI.com car you’ll know if you enter that website into your phone the first thing that happens is a pop up that says “you must be 21 to enter this site”. Since I’m at work and I don’t care if I download questionable material on my work computer, I did the busy work for you. So let’s take a lot at some of the obvious, and not so obvious sponsors of this year’s Daytona 500 cars. Except for car number 27. I have no idea what that one is.
