While we're still in the offseason and have time for random topics.....

 1.  Who is your favorite Nascar personality (driver, broadcaster, whatever) in commercials?

 2.   What's your favorite Nascar commercial (or series of commercials) of all time?

 

Being a Nascar fan of less than 10 years, I don't have much to choose from.  Michael Waltrip is probably my favorite Nascar personality in commercials.  

As far as my favorite commercial of all time, it'd have to be Dale Jarrett's UPS Tribute Commerical.  It still gets me every time.  Here's the link...hope it works.

I guess I have to go back to the Dale Junior Budweiser commercials, especially the take off on Road Warrior/Mad Max... "Just because I got Bud ON the car doesnt mean I got Bud IN the car"

But perhaps one that struck deep with many of us, even now

I guess advertising works. I had a 2000 Monte Carlo SS, and my favorite Die cast is still the 2000 "TAZ" #3 (red)

Good Idea, Griz

Good morning all

Gosh, I look back at these older Dale and Dale Jr commercials and now realize how far NASCAR has fallen.

Sigh.

I also loved the Bud Road Warrior commercials but also use to get a kick out of the Kasey Kahne commercials where he was always being chased by the girls.
True fully I like Darrel doing commentating for the most part. It is just when he gets sappy.
Almost like he talking to a 2 year old with Digger , June Bug and Boogity.
For the most part he is pretty good in the booth.
When Kyle Petty does it and talks about what drivers are doing I am never sure he knows what he is talking about because he was never really that good.
Darrel won Championships so he must have the right knowledge in there not to mention he drove for a few different owners

Float! Find the the Restrictor Plate one with Mikey and Junior? "I luv restrictor plates"

These are all good. My faves are the JJ/Chad Lowes commercials. But then they are my favorite duo and I look for reasons to stop by Lowes...

And good morning guys. Looks like most of us are in for more winter storms for the next couple of days.

One of the favorite commercial series at my house were the Rusty Wallace/Alan Kulwicki Zerex commercials. My mother especially liked the one where they were going on vacation together, Rusty was heading for the beach and Alan was going skiing, and they were both loading up the same car.

My personal favorite single commercial was the DEI commercial where Teresa and Mikey walk in on Jr and Steve Park holding up Mikey's firesuit mocking him. And Mikey turing to Teresa saying "I think they are making fun of me."

As far as commercial series I really enjoyed the Napa Home Shopping channel commercials.

No sorries on that one Mr Nice
A great commercial is great.

Good to have a laugh as well
