how to tell when they don't have full sponsorship..
Hate to say it but this dude better start lighting it up right about now. People always like to get on teams for dropping drivers like Matt DiBenedetto from JGR, McDowell, Cassill, Kligerman etc. But you can clearly see that this #33 team is a team being held afloat by string (not unlike their #33 Cup team for the first 6 races of 2012). They are scrounging for week-to-week sponsorship when Menards isn't on the car. Jones is running well, but unless RCR can start running with the Gibbs cars and securing high-paying sponsors, I see Jones being without a ride next year. Plus, what is the upside for RCR to run this team with limited funding? Jones' main sponsor is already an RCR Cup sponsor, but the driver is the sponsor's son, so it's not like he is going to be in the #27 at any point soon.
The way to succeed is basically to do what Chris Buescher did, which is take a #60 car that is unsponsored and running terribly (sometimes part-time), win a bunch of races and a championship with it, have sponsors flock to you, and then you can keep moving up. I just dont see that happening with the #33 team, which likely means either back to part time or a new driver.
I see in total, at least 2 sponsors on that car (Not including the usual RCR sponsors beside the drivers window). The way I see it, @AMLNet49 is right. This team needs funding or it's going to end up like RAB or Turner Scott. But in a way, this comes back to the Cup drivers in Xfinity dispute. Nobody want's to sponsor an 11th place car when the top 10 is all Cup level drivers which is why NASCAR needs to do something about this before more teams shut down due to funding issues
This is actual sponsorship. Years of Roush and Toyota fake sponsorship has led us to believe any manufacturer on a hood is a hole in the sponsorship schedule.
Brandon is only 19. Way too early to make a claim like that.
I believe that this is an actual sponsorship and not a fake sponsor like Toyota Care or Ford EcoBoost. However, the #33 is still a week-to-week sponsor program. I'm not sure how many races Menards is doing with Jones this year, but they've only done Daytona so far. It's been a week-by-week patchwork after that.
So say what you will about him being young and talented because he is, but they'll need the dollars sooner or later.
On track. It isn't a bad scheme TBH. I really like it
oh yeah best Okuma scheme yet
another current RCR sponsor.... I wonder how much of BJ33 is funded by RCR and real sponsorship?
I'm lost on why everyone is ripping Brandon Jones and calling these "fake" sponsorships. How exactly are they fake? If RCR turns to a sponsor and asks them if they want to sponsor the car for a weekend, RCR gets the money from the sponsor. Fake sponsorship is Big Daddy's BBQ Sauce - where they say they will fund a team and never pay a dime, that's fake sponsorship. Are the companies who are funding Brandon Jones sponsoring the car for $2-$3 million? No, but they're funding the bill. What it is, is sponsorship like in the 50's, 60's, and 70's, week to week small budget sponsors.
I think you may be confused. I made the point that it's not good for them to have week-to-week sponsors, sometimes just local sponsors. The "fake" thing is a different discussion. That Chevrolet Military Discount scheme is a real sponsor, but some wondered whether it was or not given the propensity of teams like Roush to run "Ford EcoBoost" on the car when they are sponsorless.
Sigmund Freud is fascinated by that Okuma logo...
