The second way I will present this information is by associating the number of championships with the “brand symbol” also known as the marketing graphic.

Today, people come from all around the world to witness the final race held at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, NV. Today, just as it did years ago the series is still represented by the best the world has to offer on the race course. Some...
