If we’re going by technicality here, NASCAR is an organization at best. When have people ever considered NASCAR to be a sport?

Let’s look at the highest paid football players and NASCAR drivers. Where does a majority of it come from? Yeah you guessed it, corporate sponsors, who pay specifically to have their names on a Stadium. Where did the Super Bowl take place in 2019? OH YEAH, the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
