NASCAR: THE EVOLUTION OF A BRAND

Universally regarded as one of the world’s most successful sports entertainment properties, NASCAR possesses the most brand-loyal fans and the largest sustained television audience across the season in sports. But in 2009, NASCAR faced softening demand and a weakened economy that hit NASCAR fans and sponsors particularly hard.
