Ahead of 2022’s NASCAR All-Star Weekend, the Texas Motor Speedway announced it will drop multiple NFTs on the market “Race Day NFT.” Built with the help of GigLabs, this NFT site features hundreds of new TMS-sponsored NASCAR NFTs on Dapper Labs’ Flow blockchain.
Anyone with a Dapper Wallet could buy, collect, and trade NFTs on Race Day NFT. Like other NFT markets on Flow, Race Day NFT lets customers use cards or crypto to purchase digital collectibles.
However, people who already have tickets for the IRL NASCAR All-Star Weekend could get one of 5,000 free commemorative ticket NFTs. The Texas Motor Speedway will give these NFTs to the first 5,000 Sunday ticketholders who claim them on Race Day NFT on May 22nd.
For those who couldn’t snag one of these “Texas Platinum Ticket NFTs,” the TMS says there will be 500 available for purchase. Even if you’re not at 2022’s NASCAR All-Star Weekend, you could buy one of these ticket NFTs for $10 per token.
The Texas Motor Speedway launched its first set of 500 “TMS Stadium Series NFTs” on May 16th for $5 per token. Two days later, the speedway dropped 100 “Children’s Charity Tokens” that will benefit charitable organizations in the area.
Starting on March 19th, racing fans could pick up one of 500 diecast car models with some relation to the Texas Motor Speedway. Each of these tokens will cost $20, and the last day of minting them will be on May 22nd.

High-Speed Sports Embrace NFT Trading
NASCAR’s leaders have been very open about their interest in minting NFT collectibles. In fact, this was the first year NASCAR released NFTs during its iconic Daytona 500 race.
Similar to the upcoming NASCAR All-Star Weekend, hundreds of Daytona 500 guests could have won a commemorative NFT ticket. NASCAR also airdropped ultra-rare helmet NFTs to a few Daytona 500 fans who won a ticket NFT.
But NASCAR isn’t the only professional racing organization getting involved in NFTs. For instance, Team Penske recently announced a partnership with Tom Brady’s NFT site Autograph.io. Recent reports suggest Autograph will unveil Indy 500 NFTs before the big race on May 29th.
Also, Formula 1 has been incredibly receptive to cryptocurrencies and NFTs. As Rarity Sniper recently reported, Crypto.com launched a series of F1 NFTs based on the Miami Grand Prix. The Mercedes F1 team also dropped 1,000 NFTs on FTX’s NFT site.
No matter what high-speed race fans most enjoy watching, there are probably a few NFTs associated with it nowadays.
