It’s April, so that means it’s time for another Marvel’s Avengers save the world yet again in movie theaters around the globe.
Avengers: Endgame will be released tonight and it’s expected to make an impressive amount of money despite being three hours long. Yes, three hours.
We decided to exploit the series’ attention for the second year in a row by making our own Avengers lineup of NASCAR drivers.
Just like in the comics/movies, the roster has changed some, but not due to a contract dispute/scheduling conflict/being snapped out of existence.
Send your Avengers/NASCAR recommendations to Daniel McFadin.
Stan Lee - Since our first Avengers posts last year, Jim France has assumed the position of NASCAR Chairman and CEO. He’s the perfect person to make a cameo in our NASCAR Avengers movie like the late comic book creator.
Nick Fury – Steve Phelps took over as NASCAR’s president last year. Now give that man an eyepatch.
Rocket Raccoon – Tony Stewart isn’t a talking animal. But the talking raccoon is a weapons expert who likes to make things go boom and isn’t afraid to speak his mind. If you’re ever in a tight spot that requires the use of a flame thrower, Stewart is your man.
Captain America/Falcon/Winter Soldier – Captain America and Falcon bring to mind the Ryan Blaney/Bubba Wallace duo and NASCAR’s best bromance. Chase Elliott gets the nod as the Winter Soldier anti-hero because he doesn’t get invited to their hangouts. Also, Blaney has to shave his facial hair every year like Steve Rogers in Endgame.
Spider-Man – The 18-year-old Harrison Burton takes Spidey’s web-shooters from William Byron. Somebody born after Y2K should get in on the action here.
The Incredible Hulk – Don’t make Daniel Suarez angry, especially in qualifying.
Thor – Since the “God of Thunder” got a hair cut and trimmed his beard recently, Jeffrey Earnhardt is replaced in the role by Kyle Busch and his beard.
Doctor Strange – Last year, Brad Keselowski was the pick here, but Ryan Preece gets the nod in 2019. Magic is the only reasonable explanation for how he’s avoided some wrecks this season.
Drax the Destroyer – Just like this Guardian of the Galaxy, it takes a lot to make Paul Menard smile.
Captain Marvel - The newest Avenger on the scene must be played by two-time K&N Pro Series West winner Hailie Deegan.
