Well since my dad has pretty much vetoed Target and Wal Mart (he's vowed never to buy from those stores ever again). Today we were by my Wal Mart one so I decided to run in, and yet another NY disappointment.

Only 1 trailer, not even in the right section. Then where the cars would've been, all there was was a diagram of where the cars WOULD be! I was pretty fumed.

Then my dad nicely took me to a Toys R' Us down the road, and all they had were Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano 1:64s, and a bunch of the Air Hogs.

I hate how this area gets screwed out of ANYTHING NASCAR.

Nah I travel enough that I'll find one sooner or later.


My dad just made the choice not to shop at "box stores", and help out smaller business' whenever he can. I still go to them for NASCAR and if they have something I absolutely need.

Well I agree with your dads logic, but not always is that the big picture in this anymore.

I don't remember where recently I saw the new wave with Jr's camo car, Gordon's pepsi max, and Truex's Napa.

It's more of just trying not to depend on those big companies for all the crap that you buy. But it's tough to explain. I'm alright with it, but I'll still go for NASCAR cars lol:wink:.

They said to head south to find WM's with NASCAR stuff. Just don't go TOO far south. I live in Orlando, and our WM's hardly ever have anything good.

The only place you can find Main Street now is in Disney World. Smaller buisiness are loosing money, I dont like buying from Wally World or Taget but there is no choice out here. All the 5 and dime/mom and pop places are gone with the wind.

What about in Minnesota? It's rare to find a Nascar fan, much less any Nascar stuff.

St. Louis, MO.....

All we have is a NASCAR Speedpark. And a couple dirt tracks (you have to travel down 270 to the Illinois side). But its rare. I have checked 3 of my Wal*Marts, 2 Targets, and for the heck of it my local K-Mart, NO Spin Master stuff.
