NASCAR fans are some of the most dedicated and loyal sports fans in the world. Now, these fans have the ability to experience the racing world like they never have before.
Introducing the "Nation Rising" Campaign: A hybrid digital series that will follow a driver as he competes in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in this 24/7-access, no-filter series.
Our goal is to have a 10 minute episode air the Monday after each race, starting May 10th for a total of 22 episodes. Imagine HBO’s 24/7, combined with the excitement of NASCAR. People across the world will be able to see what it takes to race in one of the biggest leagues in the world.
What do we need to create this digital series?
1. Racing cars. Lots of them!
2. A professional driver.
Well, we have racing trucks. The folks at Wauters Motorsports are ready to put their brand new trucks on the line for this project.
We have a driver: Three-time NASCAR Mexico champion, German Quiroga. German is the perfect candidate for this because he is a veteran driver who has had success driving in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
All we need is sponsors.
This has the potential to be the biggest Kickstarter yet. NASCAR has 75 million fans. If the average donation on Kickstarter is $71 then it would take less than 45 thousand fans to launch this series.
Our goal is raise 3 million dollars. You might be asking, "Why so much?" The number has been carefully calculated in order to have a series and a real shot at succeeding in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
PLUS, we have some really awesome rewards to give out.
Imagine being able to put a picture of yourself or a picture of a loved one on the actual racing truck for the world to see every weekend at a NASCAR event. This could be the first racing team sponsored by you: the fans.
Risks and challenges
One challenge is that the program will currently be filmed, directed, edited and written by one person. This series would be better executed with a team of five: a principal cinematographer, a producer/editor, an audio engineer, a web producer, and a PA. With additional funding, we will be able to expand
There is always going to be risks in motor sports. Crashes are a part of the sport. We budgeted for back up trucks to be able to run a competitive campaign.
I am confident that Richie Wauters and German Quiroga are going to handle the racing part extremely well. I am very confident in my ability to produce a quality product all by myself. I have the experience to prove it too.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
