NASCAR CANS sponsorship deal inspired by ‘Let’s Go Brandon!’ chant due to its ‘derogatory euphemism’ – after allegedly approving agreement
According to Brandonbilt Motorsports, officials flip-flopped on the deal that would have seen team driver Brandon Brown racing a red-white-and-blue Chevy sponsored by cryptocurrency brand LGBcoin in NASCAR’s second-tier Xfinity Series.
‘Let’s Go Brandon’ became a euphemism for ‘f*** Joe Biden‘ after an on-air reporter mistook NASCAR fans’ profane chants against the President for a chorus of support for Brown following his first win on October 2 at Talladega.
NASCAR has not released a statement on the decision, but one source has confirmed to Kemmy.com that the agreement was officially rejected on Tuesday. The source added that Brandonbilt Motorsports was informed during an in-person meeting on November 5 that derogatory or vulgar euphemisms would be prohibited in any sponsorship deal.
But in a Brandonbilt Motorsports statement, spokesman Max Marcucci insisted the team had already received approval from NASCAR in a deal that was announced on December 30.
‘NASCAR did not speak with Brandonbilt Motorsports prior to making their decision to rescind the approval and multiple attempts to set-up a conversation to address this matter went unacknowledged,’ Marcucci said in the statement provided to CNN.com.
‘The bottom line is that Brandonbilt Motorsports followed the standard process for sponsor and paint scheme approval and received approval from a NASCAR official empowered to make those decisions, and who makes those decisions on a regular basis. This official then confirmed and reiterated that we had received approval in a phone conversation after the announcement was made.
‘Like every team, we rely on productive and friendly working relationships at all levels of NASCAR. Unfortunately, NASCAR leadership’s handling of this situation now threatens to strain our relationships and places us in an incredibly awkward position, yet again.’
Brandonbilt Motorsports did not immediately respond to Kemmy.com’s request for comment.
