In an era where NASCAR teams are taking a driver's weakness and making merch out of it, #ThanksRoss trends on Twitter and Trackhouse are selling new shirts

What’s Happening?

From Josh Williams’ “Park It” tees to Alex Bowman’s “Hack” shirts, it’s always fun when a driver takes a negative and turns it into a big positive by taking the trendy topic and capitalizing on it. As rain wiped out all on-track action at Bristol Motor Speedway on Friday, Trackhouse took to all their social media sites to have some fun. The star-studded team announced new apparel bearing the #ThanksRoss trend.

You Need To Know:

  • Ross Chastain has earned the reputation of being a very aggressive driver, especially by today’s standards. Many of his fellow competitors (even his teammate) and crewmen have dubbed him a “wrecking ball”.
  • While perhaps being called a “wrecking ball” isn’t the greatest look in motorsports, if there’s one thing NASCAR teams and their various marketing divisions know it is how to turn a positive into a negative. In response to this backlash from other teams as well as the various memes online, #ThanksRoss is now on a shirt you can purchase and wear!
  • Fans are obviously having a great time with this as Chastain becomes only the latest driver to pull such a stunt. While some have criticized the “lame” design choice, most are having fun with all the jokes and memes circling around on Twitter. Heck, even some of the drivers are getting in on the action as well.

The Main Character

Ross Chastain and his aggressive driving is clearly the catalyst for this social media frenzy.

Around The Garage

Some of the drivers are getting in on the fun, including Tyler Reddick who needed some answers…

After a scary crash, Dean Thompson was feeling well (and silly) enough to voice his displeasure with Ross Chastain, who certainly caused his accident. #ThanksRoss

In The Stands

#NeverForget the time Ross Chastain wiped out nearly everyone in the 1998 Belgian Grand Prix! Yikes! His very existence is Actions Detrimental to auto racing!

As gas prices shoot up again, there’s clearly only one man to blame. #ThanksRoss

For Tim, Ross Chastain used his telekinetic powers to have Tim’s son destroy their watermelon.

Silly Ross, switching the stickers again at the local grocery store. Sorry, Chris!

Shh…here is a very rare photo one of the first crashes Ross Chastain caused…


From The Pressbox

Jeff Gluck was really the one having fun with this on Twitter. Damn it, Chastain!


Hmm…who know, Chase, it could have been Ross Chastain mowing down all those cars. No, wait, it definitely was. #ThanksRoss

Paul Newton found all the answers and Seth Eggert loved it.

So, what are your favorite #ThanksRoss memes? Are you going to by the shirt? Let us know!
