Microsoft has announced a special NASCAR sponsorship opportunity for SBSC Partners that wish to slap their own company logo on BAM Racing No. 49’s car (Sprint Cup car). While I may not pony up the $4K to put my already famous logo in harms way, I do appreciate Microsoft continuing to uphold their promise to put some MS marketing $ into pushing the branding of the SBSC logo. You may not realize how unprecedented this type of marketing is for Microsoft.
Now yes, I came up with at least a hundred jokes regarding NASCAR, Microsoft and Rednecks but I’m just not going to try and compete with Jeff Foxworthy for those laughs. Besides, living in Charlotte, you have to be careful about those NASCAR/Redneck jokes as folk round these parts take racing as serious as they do religion - for some they are they same (There, I slipped one in!).
