Soprano's looking for a getaway car...
 
The Sopranos will serve as the primary sponsor for Clint Bowyer's Chevy in the March 12 NASCAR race in Las Vegas. The show's logo will appear on the car's hood and quarter panels, while the Bada Bing logo will be on the rear quarter panel. Expect Bowyer's car to struggle, though, from the extra weight of the bodies in the trunk......lol

That is awesome!!!... I already thought Bowyer's "Jack" car was one of the coolest in the feild, and now he gets the Soprano car. It looks great. :cool:

So what do you guys think of the movement to having multiple main sponsers. Ala Biffle with National Guard and Subway, Riggs with Valvoline and Stanley, and McMurray with Crown Royal, Sharpie, and Smirnoff?

I think it's fine, It doesn't bother me. Usually the main sponsor runs most of the races. I know Kenseth will run a few different cars this year... Dewalt, Trex, RL Carriers, Carharrt, and the Post car he ran in the shootout. The Dewalt car is my favorite but it's all about the money.

I agree....as in any sport everybody wants a piece of the pie...as long as they keep it classy and don't go overboard looking like a rolling billboard where you can't tell them apart anymore its cool with me.....

I dont mind a few races a year but I prefer to see mostly a base paint job for the vast majority of the races. Sometimes when your watching an entire pack of cars you have to stop and look at the number to see who it is instead of it being automatic from more or less the color scheme, it's annoying. I understand it takes a shit load of money to support these teams but the cars seem to look so cluttered now. Oh well if thats what it takes to support them so be it...

Yea, i.e. Big Pus*y and Ralphie...I'd rather see STUGOTS (Tony's boat) on the car!

Multi-sponsor teams are the reality. I'm hearing that the top teams are costing around 20 million a year now, and that figure was 12-15 mil just a few years ago...
