Woke NASCAR executives are causing problems for Brandon Brown, the NASCAR driver at the center of the Let’s Go Brandon” movement.
He announced a new sponsor: Let’s Go Brandon Crypto coin.
Now, NASCAR is “reviewing” it, even though it was already approved.
According to Brandon Brown’s publicist, the car design is now up in the air.
NASCAR is reportedly reviewing a deal it approved with racecar driver Brandon Brown to have a paint scheme on his vehicle featuring a cryptocurrency sponsor that references the anti-President Biden phrase “Let’s go Brandon.”
Brown’s publicist, Max Marucci, told USA Today Sports on Friday that the original paint scheme approved for Xfinity Series car was up in the air because NASCAR was “reviewing the details.”
“I don’t know what happened, any internal conversations,” he said. “But we’re just going to try to work through whatever happens next.”

In a week where Bubba Wallace wore an “I Can’t Breathe” T-shirt before an event and said racetracks shouldn’t allow Confederate flags, the NASCAR driver will make another bold move Wednesday by racing a car with a Black Lives Matter paint scheme.
“I think by running this branding on our car, putting the hashtag out there, bringing more awareness to it, it lines up with the videos that we had put out as NASCAR,” Wallace, the first full-time African American driver in the Cup Series since 1971, said. “Listening and learning. Educating ourselves. So people will look up what this hashtag means. And hopefully get a better understanding.”
