Previously, the NY Racing team recruited veteran NASCAR driver Greg Biffle to race for them. The 52-year-old will drive the #44 car and look to qualify for the Daytona 500 this weekend. It’s also worth noting that the outfit is partnering with Grambling State University as the title sponsor.

The Chevrolet-powered team also unveiled a striking yellow and black livery for the race weekend. It can be compared to tiger stripes, and it looks good. However, there were a lot of mixed reactions about the news. Make no mistake, many were thrilled to see Biffle return to action. It is GSU’s title sponsorship that has been questioned the most, particularly in relation to student loans that university students take out to pay for high tuition fees.

One of the users angry at the sponsorship notedAgain, if my tuition went to sponsor a race car, I’d be p*ssed. Meanwhile, others mocked the team as they knew they would most likely languish at the back of the pack. Others found it ironic that GSU is not located in New York.

What else have fans said about the new NASCAR team?

another answer noted, “People so mad their tuition went to marketing. Wait till you find out where all those ‘free’ shirts go. Or your gym fees go to a new uniform every game. The money to send your teacher to the top comes from tuition fees Your money is already going into stupid things.

Some fans mocked the team and predicted that the team would struggle to qualify. According to them, NY Racing’s chance of making it to the Daytona 500 is if there is a shortage of cars on the grid. There were also a few people who thought it odd that maybe Greg Biffle was driving a Chevy; that’s because he mostly raced for Ford.
