Last October, Brandon Brown was simply being interviewed on NBC, when the crowd broke out in a “fuck Joe Biden” chant.
The on-air reporter said the crowd was chanting “Let’s Go Brandon!” and the saying has taken on a life of its own as conservatives have been chanting as a way to say how they feel about President Biden without actually saying it.
The 28-year-old driver in the NASCAR Xfinity Series is now making waves when he unveiled his new car this week, as it’s sponsored by the “Let’s Go Brandon” alternate coin.
Brown had just complained that he was having trouble finding sponsors because of the poltical chant, but clearly things have changed in a huge way.
“I have no interest in leading some political fight,” Brown said. “I race cars. I am not going to endorse anyone, and I am certainly not going to tell anyone how to vote.”
NASCAR is reportedly still reviewing the latest “Let’s Go Brandon” sponsorship.
Since the unveiling, a NASCAR spokesperson confirmed to motorsport.com that the LGBcoin.io sponsorship for Brown has not yet been approved and the team “jumped the gun” in publicizing its announcement.
“We are thrilled to partner with Brandonbilt Motorsports and Brandon Brown for the 2022 NASCAR Xfinity Series season,” said James Koutoulas, LGBcoin HODLer and founder of Typhoon Capital Management. “Brandon is not only an incredibly talented driver, but also a thoughtful individual wise beyond his years. His commitment and singular focus on his profession is inspiring and his personal story is one that we can all be proud of—an American story of success and perseverance. Brandon is truly America’s Driver.
“We are proud to support Brandon this season, to help him continue his American dream. If we do our job right, when you think of us, and you hear, ‘Let’s Go Brandon,’ you’ll think and feel, ‘Let’s Go America.’”
NASCAR itself has denounced the expression.
