It’s back! For any new readers and followers, the Battle of the Beers is the weekly drinking game focusing on the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. News, discussion topics and other themes of the week are highlighted and in proper Brake and Clutch form, we target them for a drinking game. It’s the first race of the year, so let’s get this season started right!
Preferred Beer: Yuengling (apparently the most popular beer in Florida)
-If someone says “NASCAR’s Super Bowl” or “the Great American Race”, take a shot.
-If it’s mentioned that it’s Danica’s last NASCAR race or the “Danica Double” is brought up, take a shot.
-If the new team data sharing story or drivers’ reactions to it is discussed, take a drink.
-If Chase Elliott and Ryan Blaney winning the Duels is talked about (ie in terms of the youth movement or Chase Elliott winning a Cup race), take a drink.
-If who might be Most Popular Driver now that Dale Earnhardt Jr has retired is debated, take a drink.
-If the BK Racing bankruptcy situation is discussed, take a drink.
-Since it’s the 20th anniversary of Dale Earnhardt’s Daytona 500 win, take a shot every time it’s brought up.
-If they go over the new Optical Scanning Station (aka the Hawkeye inspection system, which replaced the LIS) one more time, finish your drink.
-Also finish your drink if they review the new 5-crew member pit stop again.
