Newsmakers: NASCAR Gets Pub For The Right And Wrong Reasons

THE DAILY each Friday offers our take on the performances over the past week of some people and entities in sports business. Here are this week’s newsmakers.

WIN: LAS VEGAS ACTIVATION — So far, so good for Sin City. But the weekend remains to be played out. We do give major props to the week-long sponsor activation in the city, with adidas’ huge spreads touting “Impossible is Nothing” overtaking the facades of the MGM Grand and the Luxor. And the giant jerseys are a nice touch. T-Mobile also gets points for its Sidekick 3 D-WADE activation and presence.

LOSE: TIM HARDAWAY — Do we really need to explain?

DRAW: NASCAR — On the eve of its biggest race, NASCAR gets plenty of press time, as the series is full of fresh storylines, drama and personalities. The trouble is, too much of the coverage is filled with words like “cheating,” “suspensions,” “infractions” and “fines.”
