Subway canceled their sponsorship of Daniel Suarez – NASCAR community speaks out
At Darlington, it was announced that Subway had terminated it’s sponsorship with Joe Gibbs Racing. They made the move after three races in a four race deal. The termination letter explains they will not use the final race.
Yesterday, the reason for the termination was explained by Joe Gibbs Racing. What was the reason? It was because Daniel Suarez handed out Dunkin Donuts in a pre-race segment on NBC.
At the least, that’s a very creative excuse for pulling out of the deal. Though, likely not the case. Unless, Subway holds the belief that Daniel Suarez can live simply on eating foot-long sandwiches exclusively.
NASCAR Community Weighs In
Did the Camping World CEO offer to fill the missing sponsorship placement? It sure sounds like it?

Dale Jr: “I don’t remember him handing out donuts. Never saw it. Forgettable if I did. Big damn deal. Sucks for Suarez and JGR.”
Martin: “This is disappointing. Great kid and will make a great spokesperson for another company.”
Gluck: “Unfortunate. Suarez was just playing along with an NBC segment. Pretty lame of Subway to do that, IMO.”
Utter: “Or lame of NBC to put him in that situation”
Rice: “Sounds like a cop out for a mid level policy wonk IMHO”
K Wallace: “Absolutely ridiculous. Subway was looking for a way out. All sponsors work together and fans are smart. Insulting my intelligence.”
“Subway’s bread is too thick. Taste like a bread Sandwhich. I really like Jimmy John’s because they say HELLO to me when I enter their store.”
Lemonis: “I’ll take it. Good young man with talent.”
Marcus Lemonis is the CEO of Camping World. Did he just claim he would fill the sponsorship void? Sure sounds like he did.
