NASCAR Driver Brandon Brown’s name may have been the inspiration for the ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ meme, but he really had nothing to do with it.
Even so, he has been having trouble finding a new sponsor.
He finally found one in a cryptocurrency company that is named after the meme, but the cowards at NASCAR won’t let him put ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ on the side of his car.
Yahoo Sports reports:
NASCAR doesn’t approve ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ cryptocurrency sponsorship of Xfinity Series driver Brandon Brown
Brandon Brown won’t be capitalizing on his “Let’s Go Brandon” fame on the side of his Xfinity Series car.
Per multiple reports, NASCAR will not allow Brown to run a sponsorship from a Let’s Go Brandon cryptocurrency on his car in 2022. Brown’s team announced last week that it had secured a full-season deal with LGBCoin to be on its car in the second-tier Xfinity Series.
NASCAR immediately said that the team’s announcement was premature and made the decision Tuesday to bar the sponsorship from happening.
The phrase “Let’s Go Brandon” took off as a euphemism for “F*** Joe Biden” after Brown got the first win of his career at Talladega in October. Fans in the grandstands were heard on the race broadcast chanting the latter phrase about the president while Brown was interviewed on the track after the race. Kelli Stavast, the NBC reporter interviewing Brown, was wearing over-the-ear headphones and made a reference to fans chanting “Let’s Go Brandon.”
This is so lame.
NASCAR has made the final decision that the LGBcoin sponsorship for Brandon Brown is not an approved sponsorship to be on the car.

When Trump was president, anything that insulted him was held up as free speech.
Democrats can dish it out but they can’t take it.
