I'm always hearing NASCAR fans say that it's the most watched/attended sport in the US, blah blah blah. Well, this week's edition of Street & Smiths Sports Business Journal has some demographics for all the major sports (NFL, MLB, MLB, NHL, NBA, NASCAR) Here you go: % of fans w/ household income <$20,000 NASCAR 18.3 MLB 17.7 NHL 14.4 NBA 17.9 MLS 17.3 NFL 16.7 Interestingly, the % of NASCAR households with <20K income has increased by 18.3% since 1998. The next closest sport, NFL, increased by 9.2% % of fans w/ household income >$150,000 NASCAR 2.5 MLB 3.6 NHL 4.1 NBA 3.8 MLS 3.9 NFL 3.5 Again the % change from 1998 is 6.1%. The NFL is the next closest, with a 18.1% increase in households earning >$150k. So, more and more dirt poor households are watching NASCAR each year, while relatively fewer affluent households are watching each year. Draw your own conclusions.

I fail to see the relevance, other than insinuating that people are somehow inferior if they don't happen make a lot of money. Since all Nascar fans are dirty poor rednecks that are an affront to life itself, maybe we could put them in the camp next to all those Black gun owners who are all just evil babykillers and an affront to normal decent people evrywhere... If you don't like Nascar, here's a really simple way to show it: turn the fucking channel. SG

Wasn't trying to make any point, other than what the numbers say: If you're a NASCAR fan, you're more likely to be a member of a lower income household than the fans of other major sports. Also, if you're a member of a high income household, odds are you're more likely to be a fan of sports other than NASCAR.

What's the point of listing the advertisers? They sponsor cars to get their names in front of all the people who show up in person and in front of the tv to watch colorful cars make left turns. There's also advertising in golf (on the clothing and bags, and through sponsorship of the tournaments) and in every other sport. Doesn't mean that NASCAR fans are wealthy or intelligent, doesn't mean that they're poor and dumb. Just means that capitalism is alive and well.

You did notice that advertisers generally cover more than one sport right? Additionally, I had thought you'd read NoVaGator's post up top that noted that most households over $150K don't watch much in the way of sports at all, with Hockey leading the way. A multi-tiered approach to advertising works better than a single approach solution. Saying a name enough times to a person, even indirectly, and they will remember it. lastly, all of the folks watching NASCAR aren't in the sub-20K bracket. I trust you found out that was the case by rereading the rest of NoVaGator's post. The stats he's posting up there are representative of the number of households within a specific income bracket that watch certain sports. It's NOT a breakdown of what percentage of viewers are in a particular income bracket. Relax, it's not a personal attack against you Tx.

terry labonte (slick yoemans business partner) slick yoemans (driver) robby loomis (jeff gordon's now crew chief, chassis man then) animal (dont even know his real name)(purchasing agent for roush racing now) spent the first 6 years of my life climbing over the cars they were building down here in sinton, bum fuck, tx. my dad sponsored the car along with 3 other guys. all the guys there made it big in NASCAR so that ties me to it in that way. also, you will be damned hard pressed to find another American sport that has as patriotic of fans as NASCAR Winston Cup racing. as a gun owner if nothing else i find that refreshing. and i've also heard research relating to NASCAR fans being the most loyal purchasers of the products of their sports advertisers. and yes, it bothers me personally when someone posts a topic for apparently the only reason as to stir up, and degrade the fans of NASCAR. by the damned way, >20,000 <150,000 summa cum laude college educated NASCAR fan here.
Link Posted: 6/17/2003 11:59:23 AM EDT
Personally I'd rather see the stats for these categories, based on the 'role models' within each sport: % w/ a criminal background % w/ serious violent criminal backgrounds(murder, accessory to, assault, etc.) % w/ rape charges % w/ more than 6 children out of wedlock % who frequently fail drug test % busted soliciting prostitutes I bet the NFL, MLB and NBA will sweep those categories. Frankly, I like NASCAR, and I don't really care who makes up the fan base. The sport itself is the most important thing to me, followed by the type of people that compete in the sport. I don't really care what anyone else watches. I like to watch football, but hockey, baseball, soccer and basketball (other than college) bore me to tears. I just think it's funny how some people will beat on all the 'low class' people that watch NASCAR, while at the same time praise their favorite NFL/NBA/etc 'hero' who makes millions a year yet is a total fucking scumbag who'd sooner rape your daughter than sign an autograph for you... Oh yeah, I'm sure the liberals can manufacture plenty of stats to back the 'fact' that gunowners are 'low income' people 1000% more likely to be seen in public wearing camo BDUs and not having bathed in the last week. Don't believe everything that has fancy numbers next to it...

OK, time for some math. Let's say you have a viewing audience of 1 million NASCAR fans. There will be 25,000 households that make >$120k Now lets say you have a viewing audience of 1 million NFL fans. You'll have 35,000 households that make >$120k That's 40% more >$120k households. Hardly a minor difference.

No, you're not getting off that easy. Why bother posting to begin with if you weren't trying to go somewhere with it? Trolling, perhaps? Your statement about the likelihood of a NASCAR fan being a member of a lower income household isn't supported by your data. You would be correct to say that if you are in the low income group, you are more likely to be a NASCAR fan. Even in this case your data doesn't account for a fan of all of the listed sports. Suppose I earn less than 20,000 dollars and I root for Jeff Gordan, the Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Pistons, and everybody wants to be Tiger Woods. I don't see how these numbers would help an advertiser at all. How do I know where my target market fits in. Everybody buys laundry soap (Tide) or snack food (M&M/Mars); But, how would the U.S. Army decide to invest their marketing dollars based on the information provided. What about Pfizer, or Conseco. You aren't providing the whole story. You took an excerpt from a magazine article and posted it with a provactive comment. So, what's your point?

It's hard to make a segmented buy for TV because you cover such a wide area even if you're just advertising in the local spot of a network broadcast, but for someting like magazine ads, it would be common for the magazine's ad rate card to indicated something like: 10% Blue Blood Estates 20% Country Squires 30% Young Influentials 40% Winner's Circle This might be profile for a magazine like architectural digest or bon apetit. You wouldn't have to explain it, because 100% of the media buyers know exactly what it means.
