NASCAR announces SpongeBob SquarePants 400 Sprint Cup Race

Tuesday March 3rd, 2015

NASCAR has a new race sponsor who lives in a pineapple under the sea. The stock car racing circuit has announced that on May 9, the Kansas Speedway will host the SpongeBob SquarePants 400.

Marshawn Lynch does not believe in dress codes

The race track will feature SpongeBob themed activities throughout the weekend, including costumed characters interacting with fans, according to the press release.

Perhaps the drivers will allow SpongeBob to get behind the wheel of a car, although he is a notoriously poor driver.
