!!Am I at the Right place??

First post on reddit friends. I am problem gambler in early 30s. Little about my self came from different country as a student. Was bright student who got scholarship and job at university. I came from a state were no alcohol and gambling was legal . Did not do any form of gambling till I was 24. Than after 6 months in the states saw one of my close friend talking about winning on scratchoff " I won 100$ today" I didnt know what he was talking about I asked him how? He explained whole scratchoff procedure and I felt like 'wow so easy!' I was in Texas at that time for my studies and needed car to get around as it was small town with buses coming every hour. So I felt like I should try couple of scratch offs to win some money. First ticket I won 20 $ from 1$ ticket and it was big win at that time the person who never gambled in life. I didnt take it as a gambling at that time I thought it was "fun". That scratch off thing started to happen frequently but not majorly.
One day I was at gas station and one of my friend I saw him coming from backroom I just asked curiously "what do they sale there?"
He said they have fruit machines which you can win tickets and pay for your groceries and gas or any merchandise . Come let me show you how if you got "five"
I went. He said it's about to hit. It looked like video games kinda machine which I was playing back home with coin .
Pressed few buttons Bad things started from there my 5$ turned to 250$ My friend got excited and he said you owe me 50$.
I was like yeah if I am getting 200 why not! He went and did his thing to get cash for the tickets. Gave me 200$. I was happy.
Week pass by i went that place again Tried 20$ to do the "magic" again. Which did not happen and I left. I was like eh still I won 180$.
Week pass by I went to that gas station again and saw my friend he was upset. I asked what happen? He said he wanted to pay his bill but instead went there and spent half of money in machine so he is going to casino 30 minutes away for "getting his money back"
the place which I have never been to in whole life!
I asked him if I can join him. He said yeah but we will go in my car and I have to pay him 20 because he is broke and he helped me to win money last time.
I was like yeah as I didnt know anything about casino and that 20 can provide me some experiance.
I went to casino in Oklahoma, saw decorations, machines, and saw people winning, and loosing.
I saw my friend putting 20$ bill I gave him and he started pressing some buttons. He lost it and put another 20 and won something like 350$. He told me to enjoy till he plays poker (I didnt know table games that time)
I went to the machine. I put 20$ in it and started betting minimum 40 cents. I was down to 14$ something and was about to cash out after 2 tap as I lost whooping 6$ without single win and I press the button - boom 400$ Win. I felt the rush and joy.i pressed washout button and kept the ticket as I didnt know what to do with.
After few minutes saw my friend at table and he was playing poker and came out. He asked me why you are happy u win something? I said yea 400$ . He smiled and said "you lucky bas***. He helped me to cash it out and those crispy Bills felt awesome. I felt that rush again.
1 month goes by and I have semester break and not going anywhere. One day felt like I should just go to casino which is 30 mins away. Biggest mistake of my life which i regret for 7 years. Till now.
I didnt win that day but after that my visits to casino were frequent.
I lost my 500$ and felt like i gave my winning back. As of now i feel that's when i started feeling it's affecting me. I didnt feel compulsive that time but didnt like it.
One of the night I was just surfing facebook and I see advertisements of casino jackpots and I was like let me give it a shot. I went ther with my own 250$. Saw people hitting big on5$ slot machine and sat there. Was betting 5$ a spin so money was going fast. At one level I pressed button and the screen turned red. It spun 3 or 4 time and notice appeared "call attendant 4000$ win. I couldn't do anything with machine. Attendant came and paid me 4000$ which was 40000$ to me at that time as a full time student. That win messed me up pretty bad. I went frequently to casinos. Even made couple of friends which were high rollers.
They took me to winstar - a big casino, won 22000$ that night playing 5 to 25$ slots.
That year I lost value for money. I remember when I was new here I was thinking just to drink tap water instead of Gatorade and now I was throwing money here and there.
I went to the clubs and frequent trips to highrollers.
Was able to graduate with good grades and moved to east cost.
Now the compulsion begins. Which is destroying my sanity, family, friends and all Let's do that in part 2 as I dont want to post loong story.
This page has helped me since last few months so just felt posting after attending my 1st GA yesterday..
Thank you guys. Will be typing soon
Note - english is not my first language so please pardon spelling and grammar mistakes.

Competition differences throughout the week

How does the competition at a casino compare say on a Saturday night and a Monday afternoon? I’m home from college and am bored as shit during the week, but don’t wanna go play against way better competition than if I were to just wait until Fri/Sat. I’m thinking of winstar casino in OK since I’m in North Texas, but I’m also just asking for casinos in general. Mostly 1/2 and occasionally 2/5.

Working at a game room. Need to know if I should quit.

Hi all. I'm looking for a little legal advice on working at a "game room" in Texas. Which means that I work at a hole in the wall, grey area casino. It's obviously best if I don't say where, so I'm not going to. What I'm trying to find out, is what charges can be filed against me for being an employee there. Is it just a Class C Misdemeanor, or is it more serious? All slot machines.
People come in, and they put their money in a machine. They play and if they win or want to cash out, they get a "ticket" made out to them. Instead of having the machine print one like they would at a big, legit place like Winstar. They then take this ticket up to the counter, where someone pays them out.
The slot machines are clearly just old models that some real casino somewhere, didn't want anymore. There's even video evidence because everything is recorded. There's a big camera system and everything is being recorded in the back. At least I think it is, unless the hard drive is disconnected inside that recording box they have back there. So all the employees will be on camera paying people out.
How does this place even exist? According to the other employees, some of them have been told by the owner that the county essentially turns a blind eye to it. There's supposedly 5 other ones that he (the owner) knows of, just in this county. I've seen one other one for myself. It's nearby. The reason the law turns a blind eye to it, is supposedly because they have an easier time "cleaning up the streets" as it were. Supposedly, the fuzz will go check these places and very often find the dregs they're looking for. More hearsay is: When the next county over had a problem with these game rooms popping up like weeds, they learned of this little benefit. This ease of finding people they needed to arrest, people that the police are looking for. They're known to frequent these kinds of places. Anyway, I've yet to see anything like that happen. I have my doubts, but that's what the fellow employees say that the owner told them.
I find it much more likely, that this "grey area" the owner finds himself in, exists because he "supports the community" if you know what I mean. He greases a few palms or some such. This is all pure speculation on my part, but I do know that gambling is illegal in Texas. So something odd is going on. Word of mouth would have that place already shut down, if the right people wanted it shut down. Obviously they don't. Or they don't want it all that much. But then, maybe one day those people change their minds.
And if I may, please, don't clog the thread with replies saying "Just quit" or "Why risk it" and all of that stuff. All I'm looking to learn here, is the real penalty for working there. Then I'll make my decision on whether or not to quit, based on that. Does anyone know what the actual law is? Keep in mind I'm not gambling myself.

How far do you travel for poker?

This is a thought I had on my ride home last night. How far do you all travel from home or work to your casino or card room to play poker?

I live in Houston's and it's an odd market. The 'Texas' rooms play way too big for me, so I'm left to travel to Lake Charles, LA (120-150 miles away) to the 4 casinos there - but the Texas rooms have taken a lot of that traffic away. None of the legit casinos ever have more than six 1/3 tables going on a busy Saturday night or Winstar at the OK/TX border on I35 (305 miles).

Basically, I can't get a live game that I want to play unless I commit a significant portion of a day or a full weekend (costing a hotel night, etc.). If cost isn't a factor, I can add 30 minutes each way to my travel time and get to Vegas for the time it takes me to get to Winstar. It's why I can't ever really get more than 300 hours at the table. Because I'm basically spending just as much time time travelling as I do playing.

When I fly to where I grew up to visit my mom, she lives 35 minutes from Sands in Bethlehem PA. It's super convenient and the gas costs/toll isn't ridiculous to go play for a few hours. It makes visiting my mom much more tolerable when I can jump out after she goes to bed and play for a few hours.

Anyway - how far do y'all travel?

Where to go as an 18 y.o Texas Resident

So I have only been playing poker for about a month now, but I have nonetheless already fallen in love with the game. I love it so much that I want to try and become a poker pro. My only issue is that aside from learning as much as I can, I can't really improve unless I am playing for real money. This leaves me in a bind because I have to be 21 to play on Bovada in Texas. I am going to college next year so I can certainly go to a state where the betting age is 18 and play on Bovada there: I think this may be my best option. Otherwise, I could try and take a gap year to Canada to work/go to school part time and dedicate the rest of my time towards learning/pokerstars/tournaments I can find.
I would appreciate any help in the best direction to take given my goal. If you think my goal is unreasonable, I understand, but please don't tell me that! ;)

First time trip to Oklahoma (traveling now/requesting tips)

So I just turned 18 on August 29th and my dad is a big poker player fanatic, he said I should go to play poker in Oklahoma considering the minimum age is 18 at some if not all casinos. I'm more recreational and this is going to be my first time playing irl instead of online. He's not going to be with me so it's gonna be a bit harder but traveling with other family since my parents are separated. Well enough about me, we are driving there right now from San Antonio, Texas so it would be nice if some locals and regulars can tell me some good restraunts or places of interest, etc. around Winstar casino in Thackerville, that would be great, thanks in advance for taking the time to read this and help is greatly appreciated, anything helps :)

Race Sponsor Spotlight: Pocono/Texas

Pocono is the next stop for the Cup and Xfinity Series for the Axalta presents the Pocono 400 and the Pocono Green 250. About 1,526.8 miles away, the Truck Series joins the IndyCar Series and Stadium Super Trucks at Texas Motor Speedway with the 400.
Since its first race in 2016, the Pocono Xfinity race has never had a title sponsor, so they won't be covered in this edition.
Cup: Axalta presents the Pocono 400
I suppose Axalta doesn't need much of an introduction for NASCAR fans, especially those who know it as DuPont Performance Coatings. For the sake of this series, let's go as far back as possible, when DuPont first joined the sport.
DuPont's involvement in NASCAR did not start with Jeff Gordon, but with Ricky Craven's #99 in the Busch Series in 1992. Running the full season with DuPont sponsorship, he finished 14th in points. When Craven started his own team in 1994, the #2 was also adorned with DuPont livery. In five seasons together, Craven/DuPont won twice (both in 1994).
At the end of the 1992 season, DuPont decided to sponsor a Winston Cup Series car: the #24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet, driven by a young, mustachioed California kid by the name of Jeff Gordon). The youngster and DuPont's Cup debut did not go as planned, crashing on lap 164 and finishing 31st.
Gordon and DuPont moved up to the Cup Series full-time in 1993, where he earned Rookie of the Year honors before winning his first Cup races in 1994. The rest is history.
For much of the 1990s and early 2000s, Gordon's rainbow #24 featured DuPont as a primary sponsor, with occasional one-offs sharing the hood with the navy blue oval like NASCAR Racers, the silver NASCAR 2000 car, and the (in)famous T-Rex.
Besides Gordon, DuPont also sponsored other drivers in the lower series during the 1990s. In 1995, the newly-formed SuperTruck Series also featured a rainbow #24 car sponsored by DuPont.... driven by Scott Lagasse. Gordon's teammate Terry Labonte also drove a DuPont truck – the #5 – part-time that year. Over the next four years, DuPont made sporadic appearances on trucks: Lonnie Cox's #36 featured DuPont Thompson PBE sponsorship, while Bill Sedgwick and Austin Cameron had DuPont Stainmaster Carpet in 1998 and 1999, respectively. In 1999, Gordon and crew chief Ray Evernham's Busch Series team – Gordon/Evernham Motorsports – fielded the #24 Pepsi car for Ricky Hendrick, though Hendrick also drove a DuPont car on two occasions.
In 2001, Gordon announced he would be dropping the 51-time race-winning Rainbow Warrior and speculation arose regarding what its replacement would be. As every fan would know, in came the flames.
"I feel like the team has really worked hard and come together this year," Gordon stated. "That should put us in a real good position and I think the new paint scheme will be a great way to re-ignite this team going into next year."
"NASCAR has been a tremendous showcase for our paint finishes and this new paint scheme utilizes our latest undercoat and most productive clearcoat, and features brilliant, exciting colors," DuPont Performance Coatings president Lou Savelli added. "We think it will generate even more recognition of the DuPont name among NASCAR fans throughout the world."
Gordon would drive the blue-and-red flames car to Victory Lane 29 times, including his fourth and final championship in its debut season in 2001. Other DuPont variations began to appear on the #24 starting in 2002, such as the DuPont 200 Years car at the 2002 Daytona 500, DuPont Hot Hues at the 2006 Fontana/Indianapolis races, and Cromax Pro at the 2007 Fontana race. DuPont also served as associate sponsors for races like the Pepsi 400, appearing on the side panel as Pepsi adorned the hood; Nicorette and National Guard have also done the same.
At the turn of the decade, Gordon replaced the blue on the DuPont car with black. He won once in the new car at Pocono in 2011. During the year, DuPont's role as Gordon's sponsor decreased as he picked up AARP/Drive to End Hunger for more races; DuPont would serve as a primary sponsor for just 13 races each in 2011 and 2012. In 2012, Gordon and DuPont celebrated their 20-year anniversary with a Sam Bass-designed black-and-red car, followed by a silver scheme for the season-ending race at Homestead, one that would be driven to victory.
After the 2012 season, DuPont Performance Coatings was sold to The Carlyle Group, who rebranded the company as Axalta Coating Systems. The "new" company quickly formed a relationship with Rick Hendrick, becoming the exclusive paint for Hendrick Automotive Group.
With a new name came a slightly different paint scheme for Gordon. Axalta brands Cromax Pro and Imron Elite appeared on track before the main Axalta scheme, doing so at Texas, Talladega, and Darlington before the primary car made its debut at the June Pocono race, where Gordon finished 13th. Another Axalta paint, Standox, sponsored Gordon at the August Michigan race that year. In 2014, Gordon finally broke through to win his first race in an Axalta car at the spring Kansas event, and backed it up with two more wins in the same car at Indy and Michigan.
2015 marked Gordon's final season of full-time NASCAR racing. Axalta sponsored Gordon's car nine times during the year and even brought back the Rainbow Warrior for the Bristol night race. Although he was unable to win a race with Axalta sponsorship that year, a Chase win at Martinsville placed him in championship contention at Homestead, where Axalta unveiled a silver flames paint scheme; after finishing sixth, he ended the points battle with a third-place finish.
With Gordon's retirement, he remained close with Axalta, becoming its global business advisor and a spokesman. Axalta also opened a Customer Experience Center in 2016, located near the Hendrick Motorsports facility.
"I think this is a tremendous tribute to NASCAR and the race teams to have a sponsor as big as Axalta that is willing to put a center like this in the middle of your complex," Hendrick commented. "It says a lot about the way they use the sport and the success they’ve had on and off the track."
Axalta moved to Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s #88 car for the 2016 season. Earnhardt drove the car in five races before stepping aside due to concussion problems. Gordon and Alex Bowman served as Earnhardt's substitutes, both running four races each in an Axalta car. Bowman also drove a University of Michigan scheme at the Pure Michigan 400, the third time a college had partnered with Axalta and HMS (after Texas A&M and Penn State). During Earnhardt's own final season in 2017, his Axalta car featured a new Solar Flare design, which he has driven four times so far.
As a paint provider, Axalta has done so for Hendrick Motorsports and lower series affiliate JR Motorsports (with JRM drivers Regan Smith and William Byron driving Axalta-sponsored cars). Interestingly, Kyle Busch Motorsports also has Axalta as a partner (and can be noted when looking closely at their trucks). Stewart-Haas Racing also started receiving Axalta paint in 2014. Outside of NASCAR, Axalta's Spies Hecker brand provides paint for Mercedes F1, which team principal Toto Wolff has described as being light enough to reduce the weight of the Silver Arrows.
While DuPont had never sponsored a Cup or Truck Series race, it sponsored the first Nationwide race at Iowa in 2013, dubbing it the DuPont Pioneer 250 (won by Trevor Bayne). Axalta, on the other hand, began its sponsorship of races in 2015 with the spring Phoenix Xfinity race. Compared to its predecessor, Axalta had more "unique" race names, like the aforementioned Phoenix race being the Axalta Faster. Tougher. Brighter. 200 (lasting two years) and its first Cup race sponsorship, the 2015 June Pocono race, being the Axalta "We Paint Winners" 400. Ironically, the winner of the first Axalta 400 was not an Axalta driver (Martin Truex Jr.); SHR's Kurt Busch won in 2016. For 2017, Axalta simply named the race the "Axalta presents the Pocono 400".
Truck: 400
WinStar World Casino and Resort is an Oklahoma-based, well, casino and resort. Originally known simply as the WinStar Casino, 2009 saw a big year for it as it underwent renovation, renamed itself to WinStar World Casino, and began to dabble in NASCAR race sponsorship with the both of the Truck Series races at Texas Motor Speedway. The first race is a support event for the IndyCar Series, while the second is for the AAA Texas 500 weekend.
Both races use kilometers to determine distance; from 2009 to 2013, they were the WinStar World Casino 400K and 350K; in 2014 and 2015, they became the WinStar World Casino & Resort 400 and 350; in 2016, WinStar withdrew their sponsorships as the races became the Rattlesnake 400 and the Striping Technology 350. For 2017, WinStar's became the title sponsor of the June race, branding it the 400.
Interesting, WinStar never sponsored a catruck (in the national series, at least) until 2017. At Texas' O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 Cup race, WinStar was an associate sponsor of Landon Cassill, who finished 29th.
Let's go racing.

Spooky NASCAR: Races held on Halloween

Ah, Halloween. The day of spookiness and horrors is upon us once again.
Unlike Easter, there's no week-off on Halloween weekend, meaning it's not uncommon to see NASCAR running races the day before or after. As for races held on October 31, there's a number of them.
Just to make things easier, we're going to focus on the top three series.
1965 American 500
Series: Grand National (Cup)
The inaugural race held at the North Carolina International Speedway (better known as Rockingham), it was the first NASCAR premiere series race held on Halloween.
Despite starting on the pole, Richard Petty crashed on lap 58 and instead, Curtis Turner dominated the race. The Virginian led 239 of the 500 laps in the event to record his 17th and final career victory.
The race (along with the 1973 Carolina 500) was featured in the Speed program Back in the Day with Dale Earnhardt Jr.
1982 Cardinal 250
Series: Busch Late Model Sportsman (Xfinity)
NASCAR's second-tier series was in its first season in 1982. Then known as the Busch Late Model Sportsman Series, the 1982 season finale took place on October 31 at Martinsville.
Butch Lindley recorded his fourth win of the season. On an interesting note, the race featured seven drivers who have attempted a Cup race before (Lindley, Bosco Lowe, Tommy Ellis, Jimmy Hensley, Jack Ingram, John Utsman and Tommy Houston) as well as a future NASCAR champ in Dale Jarrett. Only three of them (Lindley, Lowe and Utsman) would finish in the top 20. Jarrett failed to finish and was classified in 37th.
1982 Warner W. Hodgdon American 500
Series: Cup
Well, this would explain the lack of Buschwhackers in the Cardinal 250. They're all in Rockingham.
This race featured a number of driver headlines. Randy Baker, Buck's son and Buddy's brother, made his Cup debut in the race, which ended with a 20th-place finish. Meanwhile, inaugural Talladega race winner Richard Brickhouse ran his last Cup race, finishing behind Baker in 21st.
The American 500 winner would be Darrell Waltrip, driving the Mountain Dew car in what would be the last Cup win for MD to date. Neil Bonnett, who finished 3rd, led 108 for the Wood Brothers; since then, the team has not led at least 100 laps. The closest WBR has reached that number was 70, recorded in Elliott Sadler's 2001 win at Bristol.
The namesake, Warner Hodgdon, was an interesting face in the NASCAR garage. Here's a pretty nice article about him for the interested.
Video of the final laps
1993 Slick 50 500
Series: Cup
Held at Phoenix in conjunction with the Winston West Series, it's not surprising to see the Cup drivers dominate the event. Of the seven Winston West drivers, Rick Carelli finished the highest in 21st.
Mark Martin dominated the race while Dale Earnhardt clinched the championship. Speaking of Earnhardt, many know about the rivalry he had with Jeff Gordon in the 90s. The two had their moments even before Gordon was winning races.
Aired on TNN, Neil Bonnett made his final call for the network before joining Richard Childress Racing for the next race at Atlanta in what turned out to be his final career start.
Race replay
1999 Sam's Town 250
Series: Busch
Besides being a holiday, October 31 seems to be the date that tracks like to host their inaugural NASCAR races, considering what we saw with the Rock. Memphis Motorsports Park is another track to see its first NASCAR action on the day, hosting a Busch Series race. On a more tragic note, October 31, 1999 was also the day IndyCar driver Greg Moore was killed in a crash at Fontana.
In the Sam's Town 250, Jeff Green recorded his 3rd win of the season from the pole. The late Adam Petty finished 5th, his final top five in the Busch Series. Meanwhile, a young driver by the name of Jimmie Johnson led his first laps of the year, leading 22 of them. He would finish 12th.
Nowadays, people bring up the concern of small entry lists. When looking at the DNQs for this race alone, it adds up to a whopping 59 cars, including the likes of Jimmy Spencer, Ricky Hendrick, Kevin Lepage and Kenny Wallace.
2003 Chevy Silverado 150
Series: Truck
The Truck Series isn't going to be left out of the Halloween races!
Held in Phoenix, there's a reason why we call Kevin Harvick the Cactus King. He led 80 laps en route to his 2nd straight Phoenix Truck win. For the race, he ran a Taz scheme to promote the movie Looney Tunes: Back in Action. Yes, the same one featuring Jeff Gordon.
Race replay
2004 Bass Pro Shops MBNA 500
Series: Cup
2004 Atlanta race weekend was a somber one for Hendrick Motorsports. It had been a week since the plane crash that claimed ten team members.
With those ten in their hearts, the 48 team showed poise in Atlanta. Jimmie Johnson held off a charging Mark Martin to win an emotional 3rd straight race.
As he described it: "6 car was coming, but I had ten angels riding on this race car."
Race replay
2008 Chevy Silverado 350K
Series: Truck
The Truck Series' next Halloween date took place in Texas.
Most of us may know about Ron Hornaday and Kyle Busch's unamiable relationship at Texas. Three years before that incident, the two were battling it out for the win. Hornaday came out on top as Busch finished 2nd despite leading the most laps. The win moved Hornaday closer to Johnny Benson in their fight for the Truck title with 2 races to go, though Benson would hold him off for the championship.
2009 Fred's 250
Series: Truck
The Truck Series got another Halloween race a year later, this time at the infamous Talladega Superspeedway, a fitting venue considering the so-called Talladega jinx and rumors of it being built on an Indian burial ground.
Kyle Busch and teammate Aric Almirola were able to get past Todd Bodine to record a Billy Ballew Motorsports 1–2 finish. In other news, start-and-parker Justin Hobgood finished 9th, his only career top 10. Also of interesting note is Austin Dillon failing to qualify for the race.
Talk about spooky.
2010 Amp Energy Juice 500
Series: Cup
Talladega in 2010 was crazy. In the spring, there were 88 lead changes. In the fall, 87 on Halloween.
In this race, plenty of drivers sniffed the lead, including Joe Nemechek and Sam Hornish Jr. In the end, Clint Bowyer scored his 4th win under caution as A. J. Allmendinger went for a wild ride entering the final lap.
Race replay
2014 WinStar World Casino & Resort 350
Series: Truck
Well, Kyle Busch won this race, his 42nd win in the Trucks. That's really it. Jeb! Burton finished 2nd. Ron Hornaday ran his final Truck race to date, finishing 12th.
Race replay
2015 Kroger 200
Series: Truck
Last year's Halloween race weekend was at Martinsville, just like this year. Unlike 2016, however, there was racing on October 31. In this case, it's the Trucks once again.
At Martinsville, one can expect plenty of beating and banging, and the Trucks offered that.... a lot. There were 12 separate cautions for accidents but Matt Crafton was able to survive to take the victory, his 10th career win in the CWTS.
Race replay
As one can see, there have been 12 NASCAR national series races, five of which were Cup, two Xfinity and five Truck.
Should be interesting to see what the 13th race would be. It'll certainly be a spooky one.

Race Sponsor Spotlight: Road America/Darlington/Mosport

It's throwback weekend at Darlington Raceway (and Canadian Tire Motorsports Park)! The Cup Series runs the traditional Bojangles' Southern 500, while the Xfinity Series has the VFW Sport Clips Help a Hero 200 and the Trucks battle the Mosport road course in the Chevrolet Silverado 250!
Last week, the Xfinity Series was the lone national series on track, racing its final road course of the season at Road America in the Johnsonville 180.
Road America
Xfinity: Johnsonville 180
Anyone like sausages? They're what Road America sponsor Johnsonville Foods produces.
Johnsonville's involvement in NASCAR seven years before the first Road America event was held (though in the same series). In 2002, the company became an associate sponsor of ST Motorsports (now JTG Daugherty Racing)'s #59 Busch Series car driven by Stacy Compton. In two full seasons with Johnsonville, Compton recorded 22 top-ten finishes and a pole at the 2003 Kentucky race. When ST switched to Ford in 2004, Johnsonville did not return to the team.
Six years after departing ST, the Busch (now Nationwide) Series introduced a race at Road America. In its eight years of existence, the race has been exclusively sponsored by Wisconsin-based companies: mining tool manufacturer Bucyrus, headquartered in South Milwaukee, sponsored the race in 2010 and 2011 (Eau Claire's Menards was co-sponsor); Plymouth cheese maker Sargento was the sponsor in 2012; Johnsonville, based in Sheboygan Falls, became a regular fixture in 2013 with the Johnsonville Sausage 200 presented by Menards. Milwaukee's Gardner Denver sponsored the 2014 Gardner Denver 200 Fired Up by Johnsonville, with the Road America 180 Fired Up by Johnsonville being the race name in 2015 and 2016. For 2017, the race was simply known as the Johnsonville 180.
Cup: Bojangles' Southern 500
Anyone like fried chicken?
Bojangles' began its sponsorship in NASCAR as early as 1982, when it appeared on the bright yellow #20 of Rick Newsom in four races, with a best finish of 19th at Darlington.. J.D. McDuffie drove a Bojangles'-sponsored car at the 1983 Atlanta spring race, where he finished 36th.
It wouldn't be until the 1990s that Bojangles' made its return to NASCAR, doing so sporadically with Bobby Hillin Jr. and Peter Sospenzo in the Busch Series and Eddie Bierschwale in Cup (1991). In 1993, the restaurant chain formed a partnership with Cale Yarborough Motorsports and Derrike Cope, sponsoring his #55 for the full season; he finished 26th in points. During the year, Jimmy Hensley's #7 was sponsored by Bojangles' in three races (North Wilkesboro, Martinsville, Talladega). Afterwards, Bojangles' pulled its sponsorships and didn't sponsor another car until 2001: Stanton Barrett's #90 Busch Series car. The partnership lasted through the 2004 season, the last of which also featured a one-off at the 2004 Food City 500, where he finished 32nd. Jamey Caudill also drove a Bojangles' vehicle when he piloted the #84 truck in 2002 at South Boston, though he was involved in a crash and finished 34th.
In 2012, Bojangles' took over title sponsorship of the Southern 500 from Showtime, signing a five-year deal with Darlington Raceway. Two years later, a five-year extension was signed.
"Just like Bojangles' famous chicken and biscuits, NASCAR is deeply rooted in the culture of the South," Bojangles' President and CEO Randy Kibler stated in 2012. "We are honored to be sponsoring the only NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in South Carolina, where we have been in business for more than 30 years and operate 110 of our more than 500 restaurants."
Xfinity: VFW Sport Clips Help a Hero 200
Anyone support veterans or like haircuts?
As its name suggests, the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) supports those who were involved in military conflicts in other countries. Founded in 1899, its first NASCAR sponsorship took place 106 years later in 2005, when it sponsored the #08 truck of Rich Bickle at Mansfield; he finished fifth. During the year, fellow SS-Green Light Racing drivers Sean Murphy and Johnny Chapman also received sponsorship from the fund, though they were unable to score any top-20 finishes. In 2006, VFW itself began sponsoring one-off cars on two fronts: Kraig Kinser in the Truck Series and Joe Nemechek in the Busch Series.
In 2008, VFW formed a partnership with Kevin Harvick Incorporated, sponsoring the #77 of Cale Gale in the Nationwide Series and the #33 of Ron Hornaday Jr. in the Truck Series. Harvick also drove the #33 VFW-sponsored Nationwide car in three races across 2008 and 2009 (Daytona twice and Charlotte). While the Nationwide cars were unable to win races or crack the top five (Harvick recorded its best finish of 10th at Daytona in 2009), Hornaday won twice (2008 at Texas and 2009 at IRP) and clinched the 2009 Truck Series championship at Phoenix while driving his VFW truck.
Sport Clips' first NASCAR sponsorship also took place in a similar timeframe as VFW, doing so at the season-ending 2003 Ford 300 with David Stremme. In 2004, Mike Wallace's #4 GEICO car had Sport Clips as an associate sponsor for much of the season, though Sport Clips was also a primary sponsor on occasion. Hank Parker Jr.'s truck was also sponsored by Sport Clips in two races (Atlanta and Charlotte). In 2005, Nemechek was sponsored by Sport Clips for the February 2005 Daytona Busch race, where he finished seventh.
In 2006, Sport Clips allied with Paul Tracy, sponsoring his #34 Busch Series car and #9 truck; Tracy ran the former in five races, while racing the latter at Texas, where he finished 20th.
In 2009, the barber chain aligned with Joe Gibbs Racing, sponsoring the #20 of Joey Logano in the Nationwide Series. A year later, while continuing to sponsor Logano, Sport Clips also began doing so in the Cup Series with Denny Hamlin's #11; in their first race together at Atlanta, Hamlin won the pole before finishing last after suffering an engine failure. Over the following years, Sport Clips continued sponsoring Hamlin part-time, doing so at Atlanta and Darlington; at the 2012 Atlanta event, Sport Clips won its first Cup race with Hamlin at the wheel. In NASCAR's second series, other drivers who have piloted JGR's Sport Clips cars have included Hamlin, Drew Herring, Elliott Sadler, Erik Jones, Kyle Benjamin, and James Davison. In the Cup Series, Jones and Carl Edwards have also raced with Sport Clip liveries, the latter winning the Texas fall race in 2016 while driving the red-and-white car.
As a race sponsor, VFW sponsored the Michigan Truck race from 2010 to 2013, naming it the VFW 200. Sport Clips, who has been a close supporter of VFW, sponsors the "Help A Hero Scholarship" program alongside Student Veterans of America, which provides veterans with scholarships at post-secondary and trade schools. In 2012, VFW and Sport Clips became the title sponsor of the Darlington Nationwide race, naming it the VFW Sport Clips Help a Hero 200.
Truck: Chevrolet Silverado 250
Anyone like trucks?
Like the Kansas race in May, Mosport's Truck race is sponsored by a manufacturer; in this case, it's Chevrolet with its Silverado brand. The Silverado was introduced in 1998 to replace the C/K line, one that had been dominating the Craftsman Truck Series' early years; in four years, the C/K had won 65 of 97 races and four consecutive Manufacturer's Championships.
For the 1999 season, the C/K was phased out in favor of the Silverado, which was run by four of the top-ten championship finishers that year: Jack Sprague (Champion), Jay Sauter (5th), Hornaday (7th), and Andy Houston (8th). The Silverado won nine races that year, trailing Ford by three. Over the next three seasons, although Ford and Dodge won the Manufacturer's Championships, Sprague won the driver's title twice during that span. In 2002, Xpress Motorsports' Mike Bliss won the championship in a Silverado, part of an 11-win campaign for Chevrolet as they won their first manufacturer's title since 1998. When Bliss moved into the Busch Series for 2003, Travis Kvapil replaced him in the #16 truck, which once again saw another Driver's Championship. Further Driver's Championship wins would occur in 2007 and 2009 (Hornaday), 2011 (Austin Dillon), 2012 (James Buescher), and 2016 (Johnny Sauter).
In the 19 years since its introduction, the Silverado has won 154 races, including a whopping 15 in 2011 (though just twice in 2014), four Manufacturer's Championships, and nine Driver's Championships.
This season, the Silverado is fielded by seven full-time teams: GMS Racing, MB Motorsports, Copp Motorsports, NEMCO Motorsports, Premium Motorsports, Norm Benning Racing, and TJL Motorsports; Young's Motorsports, JJC Racing, and Niece Motorsports also run Silverados, though they also have other manufacturers.
As a car sponsor, the Silverado appeared on Dennis Setzer's #46 Morgan-Dollar Motorsports truck throughout the entire 2004 and 2005 seasons, during which he won six races and finished second in points both years. In his part-time Truck schedule in 2005, Bobby Labonte's #47 Morgan-Dollar truck also had Silverado logos. Setzer switched numbers to #85 in 2006, while his truck featured a green-and-yellow scheme promoting the Silverado's FlexFuel E85 engine. He finished 13th in the points standings. During the year, Chad McCumbee's #08 was sponsored by the Silverado at Kentucky, where he finished 18th, while Nemechek's #46 also had the same sponsor at Atlanta, where he finished 35th.
In terms of race sponsorship, the Silverado has, unsurprisingly, exclusively sponsored Truck races, first doing so in 2000 with the Chevy Silverado 200 at Nazareth. In 2001, it was increased to three races with the Silverado 350K at Texas and the Chevy Silverado 150 at Phoenix; Nazareth was dropped in 2002, though Texas and Phoenix retained the Silverado sponsorships. Casino Arizona took over sponsorship of the latter race in 2006, reducing Chevrolet to just one event until 2007, when the Daytona race became the Chevy Silverado HD 250. In 2008, the Daytona and Texas races were rebranded to the Chevy Silverado 250 and Chevy Silverado 350K, respectively, before receiving new sponsors in NextEra Energy Resources and WinStar World Casino.
For the inaugural Truck race at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, General Motors Canada (whose headquarters are located in nearby Oshawa) took over naming rights of the event, naming it the Chevrolet Silverado 250.
"Really, it was a no-brainer for us, it being in our own backyard," GM spokesman George Saratlic stated. "What better place to showcase our product."
Let's go racing.
