You can't let one bad moment spoil a bunch of good ones.
The Pit Stop
The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing aka NASCAR is an American auto racing sanctioning and operating company that is best known for its stock-car racing. Founded by Bill France Sr. in 1948 alongside his son Jim France, NASCAR is headquartered in Daytona Beach, Florida. Each year, NASCAR sanctions over 1,500 races at over 100 tracks in 48 US states as well as in Canada, Mexico, and Europe. There are many series of NASCAR races such as NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, and some international ones such as (Pinty's Series, PEAK Mexico Series, and Whelen Euro Series). NASCAR is one of the most successful and iconic motorsports, but that didn't stop NASCAR from having a toxic fanbase.
Why They Won't Win The Race
They are never satisfied every time NASCAR tries to appeal to the fans. No matter how hard NASCAR tries, the fans will still riot as if it were the Super Smash Bros. Fandom of motorsports.
They deny their own toxicity by trying to pin the blame on other fandoms (like the F1 Fans) and makeup excuses to make the NASCAR fans look non-toxic.
It's easy to spot fans who would go after other motorsports fandoms such as F1 being the butt-monkey for the NASCAR Fandom alone.
Regardless of how excited a race was, these fans will always be present to quickly tear up apart the sanctioning body, drivers, tracks, teams, sponsors, etc.
Some of them are ageist (especially Reddit) since you got some fans who would hate racers like Kyle Busch and Johnny Sauter just for not being young. That is no way to dislike a certain driver.
Nostalgiatards are still at bay in this fandom. The reason being is because if you were to look up any old school NASCAR video, you will get these people who are stuck in the past. A good example of this would be any NASCAR video related to 1997.
They accuse other users of saying your favorite NASCAR driver is (insert any NASCAR driver here), but a user's PFP would show another driver. In short, they want people to like ONE driver instead of a selected number of drivers. Oh please, let other people like a certain amount of drivers.
When it was announced that NASCAR drivers will be able to continue the NASCAR series in the form of iRacing during the COVID-19 outbreak, a selected portion of the fandom disliked the idea just because it's not close to the real races on live TV or outside. Listen here, the NASCAR drivers need to be safe because the COVID-19 is a deadly virus that is able to kill like 140000+ people so stop it.
There have been some fans who would make jokes about the NASCAR crashes that sometimes show up during a race. Just because the increased safety measures exist nowadays does not mean you should make jokes about them. Let us remind you, readers, that racing can still be truly unsafe.
Many of them chastize Danica Patrick that thishappened before. Talk about being sexist. A couple would also hate GoDaddy just because of Danica Patrick herself.
On the discussion of Danica Patrick, there is also hatememes.
Danica isn't the only one who gets demonized, other drivers had as well like Kyle Busch (they keep mocking him for his attitude and compared him to Chick Hicks from Pixar's Cars) as a prime example. This also happened to Kyle as well.
You got some fans who are so impatient about getting an autograph of a driver. While most fans do want to get autographs before or after a race, some just decide to take matters into their own hands (like tiring to jump a chain-link fence during a red flag at Watkins Glen and try to get an autograph from Matt Kenseth).
