Admittedly, it's a few days before April Fools, but then again, this isn't a joke. NASCAR, America's favorite long distance runaround has become the stuff of marketing legend, with fans spending some $2.1 billion on officially licensed merchandise this past year alone. All of which is supposed to go some way towards justifying the existence of NASCAR-branded meats (“Taste the Excitement!”), but we’re still a little fuzzy on the whole deal. Presumably it has something to do with tailgating, but we think it's all a bunch of boloney.

Regardless, this is hardly NASCAR’s first foray into foods. Anyone ever read Chicken Soup for the NASCAR Lover’s Soul?

Feel free to PUNish Monogram Foods (maker of NASCAR meats) with your comments.

      I'm just counting the days until the announcement of "The Official Tampon of NASCAR". Don't laugh; you know it will happen.

      Ummmmmmmm good Chinese meat!

      How about a chaser of

      Jeff Foxworthy Jerky Products, Yep they do that too.

      "NASCAR Officially Licensed hot dogs and meat products are the hottest brands to hit grocery shelves around the country this year."

      Is this like Kosher? Your meat must be run over first, prior to packaging.

      Hunny! You didn't throw away the collectible wrappers did you? Gotta save it, it was number 6,000,001 of 12,000,000 that 1 makes it real collectible!

      Jeff Gordon has been eating NASCAR meat for years. When push comes to shove, he prefers the weiners.

      I wish the myriad branding deals could somehow help lower ticket prices. Sigh.
