A NASCAR career can be a game of Shoots and Ladders. A driver could have a quiet career and then get thrusted up into the spotlight.
Sometimes, though, a driver’s career is set back so far that even saying “Sorry!” would not fix the problem.
Greg Sacks is a great example of how a career can have its ups and downs. After his win at the July Daytona International Speedway NASCAR Cup Series race in 1985, Sacks did not find victory lane in NASCAR’s top level again.
By the mid-’90s, Sacks was jumping from ride to ride to survive in the Cup Series.
Much like Sacks’ career, the board game Franchi$it had a journeyman story to it, too.
In the latest Deepdive, Frontstretch‘s Jared Haas takes a deep dive into the story of Franchi$it and how it is related to NASCAR and Sacks.
Even though Loren Fossie’s race team did not show up to the track in 2002, Sacks used Franchi$it sponsorship to get back racing in ARCA and then the Cup Series, as Haas continues this new Frontstretch series.
