There is nothing — and I mean really, absolutely nothing — on the 2021 NASCAR Cup Sequence time table that can compete with the name for Sunday’s race at Kansas Speedway. And it’s so clearly the only, most ridiculously amusing race name on the 2021 Cup time table, and it’s now not even shut.
Sunday’s match at Kansas is called: The Buschy McBusch Race 400.
And we’d anticipate nothing much less after race sponsor Busch let fans take the legitimate race name. (Be mindful Boaty McBoatface or the attempt to name a soccer crew Footy McFoot Face? This is what the information superhighway does.)
Taking a look at this 300 and sixty five days’s NASCAR Cup Sequence time table, the race names are really vogue of easy, appreciate the upcoming Goodyear 400 at Darlington Raceway, or passe, appreciate final Sunday’s GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway. So at the same time as you gawk the Buschy McBusch Race 400 sandwiched between those two races on the time table, it blatantly stands out for therefore many causes, together with the inevitable chortle you’ll appreciate attempting to claim it out loud with a straight face.
At the starting of the NASCAR season in February, we celebrated the absurdity of the overly punctuated mouthful: The Pork. It’s What’s For Dinner. 300. And that’s positively accumulated on the list as certainly one of the only/worst NASCAR race names ever, along with similarly awkward ones appreciate the 1000Bulbs.com 500 or the Axalta Faster. More durable. Brighter. 200.
And, obviously, there’s the infamously preposterous Wide Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard Powered by Florida Georgia Line — which, because it turns out, is but again the name of this 300 and sixty five days’s Cup race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where drivers will race on the road course rather than the iconic oval.
But the Buschy McBusch Race 400 deserves its particular state among goofy race names too.
Earlier this 300 and sixty five days by its promotion shopping for a race name, Busch challenged fans to donate now not much less than $1 to the nonprofit Farm Rescue — and the beer firm mentioned it matched the donations — which could well presumably enable them to then publish a race-name nomination.
At final, the list of seemingly race names became as soon as narrowed all the intention down to four: The Busch Latte 400, the Nectar of the Cobs 400, the For the Farmers 400 and, obviously, the Buschy McBusch Race 400.
In point of fact, there is simply one accurate answer right here. And fans clearly knew that and acted accordingly, inundating the replies with Buschy McBusch Race.
And now, at some stage in the week and weekend, other folks in the NASCAR world can revel in an accurate snicker every time they be taught it or hear someone negate, “the Buschy McBusch Race 400.”
The Buschy McBusch Race 400 is at Kansas Speedway on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET on FS1.
