NASCAR Jacket, 2010

Summary

NASCAR's popularity soared in the 1990s and 2000s. With its fan base growing in size and diversity, the sport attracted new sponsors. Traditional automotive-related brands, like DuPont and Sunoco, were joined by non-automotive brands like Sprint, Tyvek, Pepsi and even the National Guard. NASCAR-themed souvenirs, like this jacket, increased sponsors' reach beyond race day.
