It’s About Time: Bill Elliott to Drive Walmart Car at Daytona in July (Picture)
Can you believe it has taken Walmart this long to sponsor a Sprint Cup automobile? Forget the fact that Bill Elliott is returning to the Sprint Cup for one race — the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona in July — and focus on the important stuff here. Throughout the years, we have seen advertisements for kitty litter, dog food, Viagra, and Butt Paste plastered on the side of stock cars, but never the legendary Walmart? That is just absurd.
Elliott will be driving the No. 50 car, which represents the 50th anniversary of the opening of Walmart. Shame on them for waiting 50 years to acknowledge the fact that the clothes being worn by about 97 percent of the spectators in the stands at any given race were purchased at Walmart. The beers they all brought to the race? Walmart. The convenient cooler they are allowed to stash under their seats that holds about a dozen beers? Walmart. Walmart, Walmart, Walmart. Welcome to the 21st century. It’s about time.
Great big “Yee-haw!” to From the Marbles for sharing the picture
